Oliver Twisted by JD Sharpe: Oliver Twisted Soundtrack


 I am delighted to introduce JD Sharpe to The Mile Long Bookshelf! She is here today to talk about her new book Oliver Twisted, and the music she listened to while writing it. Have a listen to some of the links! :)

Thanks so much for having me on your blog! I am going to share today some of the music I listened to whilst writing Oliver Twisted.  I would say that the list broadly falls into two camps, folksy and hip hop but there is an Eighties vein in there as well! I think that’s because the book has distinct moods and I found myself needing different types of stimulus at different points.   

I NEED music to write. Some people find music distracting while working but I couldn’t sit down to write for hours on end without it. When the going is tough, when you are up against the wall, music can push you through. So here are some of the songs I listened to on Spotify while writing Oliver Twisted. I’ve include some you tube videos as well. Enjoy… 

I love this Austin Powers version. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6QhCHcyJh-I 
Kate Bush – Wuthering Heights

Thanks JD! It's been a pleasure to have you on the blog. Tomorrow you will see her at  Daisy Chain Book Reviews.

  1. I *have* to listen to music whilst working, my favourites are Taylor Swift, The Gaslight Anthem and One Direction.(:
    Ooh, great songs. I love Flo's song My Boy Builds Coffins and you can never go wrong with Use Somebody. Mumford are awesome and I love All of the Lights! Ooh, I really need to listen to M.I.A, not sure it's my kind of music, but everybody seems to be enjoying her stuff...
