A Quiet Revolution Playlist – Song 30

This is it! I hope you’ve enjoyed this musical journey behind the book. Even if you didn’t want to know why the songs went with the chapter, if you found a new song you like I’m happy. This final song ought to be fairly obvious. The entire book has been dealing with revolutions, of oneContinue reading “A Quiet Revolution Playlist – Song 30”

A Quiet Revolution Playlist Song 29

For the last time in the book we have a ‘slice of life’ chapter; no major plot points, no really dramatic action. In fact, everything is settling down again and people are desperately trying to make Life Go On. It just happens to be the night of Double Dip’s wedding. When there’s a wedding, there’sContinue reading “A Quiet Revolution Playlist Song 29”

A Quiet Revolution Playlist Song 28

We’re into our final week of songs, so hold onto your hats! Another high-energy song; that must mean it’s another fight scene, right? Actually, yes. And this one is really pointed right at Chief Stone. Okay, I’m going to sidetrack here. How old do you think Cass & Ken are? Just guessing from the coversContinue reading “A Quiet Revolution Playlist Song 28”

A Quiet Revolution Playlist Song 27

Once again we run into a song which is about a mood rather than a specific chapter, which is fairly common. This one is also tied to the video more than the song. Right. Gotta tell you the song first, otherwise the rest makes no sense. Shadows of the Night by Pat Benatar. Remember theContinue reading “A Quiet Revolution Playlist Song 27”

We are so CLOSE now! From where Kendra’s sitting, things are going great. She’s managed to pull half the members of the Union away and into an alliance with her Federation; her starships are getting back to exploration; and there may just be an endgame in sight for Artemis. This song is exactly how she’sContinue reading “A Quiet Revolution Playlist Song 26”

A Quiet Revolution Playlist Song 25

This chapter was a challenge to match a song to. On the one hand, there’s a good bit of combat in it, which would lend itself to a high-energy song. In fact, I had considered yesterday’s song for this chapter, and it would have worked for about half the chapter. But then the chapter takesContinue reading “A Quiet Revolution Playlist Song 25”

A Quiet Revolution Playlist Song 24

Oh, this song! I was introduced to this song by a PlayStation 2 game. Yup. I know, shocking, considering it’s a classic, but the first time I heard it was in the playable promo version of Burnout 2. Then, when I wrote this chapter the energy of the song perfectly fits the mood of theContinue reading “A Quiet Revolution Playlist Song 24”

A Quiet Revolution Playlist Song 23

This song is going to take a little bit of explanation. It’s a bit more complicated, getting from the music to the position in the book, than most of the others I’ve posted. Usually there’s a pretty straight line from chapter to song. Either the song fits the mood of the chapter, or the titleContinue reading “A Quiet Revolution Playlist Song 23”

A Quiet Revolution Playlist Song 22

We’re in the home stretch of the book! This song is the first one from the final act, and this song just seemed absolutely perfect. Not just for the chapter, the act, or even the book, but the entire series. You may not have noticed – and if you haven’t, SPOILER ALERT! – but mostContinue reading “A Quiet Revolution Playlist Song 22”

A Quiet Revolution Playlist Song 21

You know, up to this point I’ve been careful to leave gaps between chapters with songs; sometimes the gaps are significant, sometimes just a single chapter. But you may notice that this song is tied to the third chapter in a row. The reason for that, of course, is it fits, and it fits theContinue reading “A Quiet Revolution Playlist Song 21”
