Fame and Fortune PlaylistDay 1

Playlist with Song tie in Part 1

Good Morning everyone, and thanks to the lovely ladies for adopting me this week. I think it’s time to settle down with a cup of coffee, perhaps a mimosa, and talk about some tunes!

Every song on the playlist has meaning and relates to something in the book. Sia – Elastic Heart has to be one of my personal favorites. The song itself holds a multitude of meaning. Some say it’s a father’s heart break over his child growing up. In Fame and Fortune you could take it out of context that Mattie would have given anything to have his parents feel that way about him. The chorus of the song, Elastic Heart, it’s very much Mattie. With everything he’s been through, they still didn’t break him. He not only finds love and happiness, he thrives and grows stronger because of that love.

Rachel Platten – Fight Song. “I will scream out loud tonight, can you hear my voice alright.” Once you read the book, you’ll Fameandfortune-Customdesign_JayAheer2015-transparent-3Drenderunderstand the meaning of this song. Mattie definitely still has a lot of fight left in him.

SilverSun Pickups – Lazy Eye. One of the more fun scenes when writing this book was when Victor, Andrew, Mattie and Jordan were cooking dinner. They were just hanging out in the kitchen cooking with this song playing in the background, dancing while chopping vegetables, then dancing with each other. And then it comes in again at the end of the book and holds even more meaning, building positive memories.

You should read Fame and Fortune then go listen to the playlist and see if you can place all the songs where they play into the story, it can be a fun game!

 

meet the author

A military brat born and raised at Ft. Benning Georgia; Smith is an avid reader, reviewer and writer. She now calls Texas home from her small town on the outskirts of the DFW Metroplex. Most days you can find her curled up with her kindle and a good book alongside a glass of something aged and red or a steaming cup of coffee!

At 44 years young, she’s decided to enter the next phase of her life by adding the title of “author” to her list of accomplishments. Smith is a single mom of three disturbingly outspoken and decidedly different kids, one of which is Autistic. Besides her writing, Smith is passionate about Autism advocacy and LGBT rights.
