For one of the romantic scenes in my YA contemporary romance, I needed to find a song that the love interest could play for my MC. Craig was a jock with a secret hankering for the classical guitar. I needed something sexy- preferably with a bit of Italian (his roots) and after enough digging, I found ‘Quando Quando Quando’.
Of course, it helped that the version I listened to was sung by Michael Bublé=instantly sexy. But after writing the scene, the stupid song got STUCK in my head for the remainder of the manuscript and whenever I hear it, I can only think of Craig and Avery, that magical night when he played his way into her heart…amongst other things.
Here’s the link if you want to give it a listen. I’m at the point where I think it has magical powers of seduction.
Has your manuscript ever led you to music, or a song you wouldn’t have normally listened to?
