I have a confession: I love music! Not every kind, but a wide variety. So when I started writing Haunted Melody (Secrets of Roseville Book 2, I was happy to discover that my heroine Paulette and I share one thing in common: we both react to situations by thinking of songs. As a result, when she gets into her car to start driving, she hums “On the Road Again.” Sounds very familiar! With that in mind, I thought I’d share the playlist (linked to Spotify) from Paulette’s story, Haunted Melody, in the order in which they appear:
It’s Raining Men – The Weather Girls
Good Morning from Singing in the Rain
I Will Survive – Gloria Gaynor
Getting to Know You from The King and I
Sunshine on My Shoulders – John Denver
Singin’ In the Rain – Gene Kelly
Shall We Dance from The King and I
Celebration – Kool and the Gang
Unchained Melody from Ghost – The Righteous Brothers
I love the blend of ballad and musicals in this list. Some of my favorite singers and groups are included, especially John Denver and the Eagles.
In reviewing this list, it occurred to me that the song titles actually mirror the emotional journey that Paulette finds herself making. Very interesting! Do you have a go-to song that pops into your mind in certain situations? Or if you did, what would it be?
Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts and opinions!

Zak Markel has been searching for the last ingredient to create the Elixir of Life he hopes will save his brother’s eyesight.
