There is a lot of music in my books, either implied or outright named. I listen to a lot of music when I write, too. If I wasn’t a writer – and had even a smidgen of talent – my next career choice would have been a musician. So it seems natural that there should be an official soundtrack to my books. And here it is, a Spotify playlist to listen to when reading “The Shadow of Black Wings” – just click the logo below:
Unfortunately, making it a Spotify playlist meant I was limited in my choice of music. If I had my way, the soundtrack to “The Shadow…” would have been made mostly of music of Yoko Kanno, Joe Hisaishi and Hajime Mizoguchi. As such, there is less music that I wanted available for the second part of the book. I was even more surprised to see that Spotify doesn’t have two of my favourite soundtracks, Excalibur and Conan the Barbarian (the original one), and very few Kurosawa soundtracks. But needs must, I suppose. I might one day prepare the alternative list if I find a way to post the songs without breaking all sorts of rules.
There are some spoilers here, so the rest is under the cut.
