Jamie Baker Playlists!

For today as part of the Remember Jamie Baker release party, let’s take listen to the book shall we? So, soundtracks or book playlists… I generally have a soundtrack or playlist for all of my books that I will listen to over and over again as I work on a project. I need quiet when I’m doing the actual writing part, but I still wear my playlists out all other hours of the day. It’s usually a combination of things that will draw a certain song to a book playlist. Whether it’s a sound, or a line of lyrics, or it reminds me of a certain scene or character.

For some reason, though, I’ve never had more than just a couple of songs that made me think Jamie Baker. Originally I only had three songs on my personal Being Jamie Baker soundtrack. Those songs were Brooklyn is Burning by Head Automatica, Girlfriend by NSync, and Miracle by Paramore. So after the book came out I asked my readers to help me out and then chose some songs from those that I think really fit the book best. They didn’t let me down. I can’t find the entire original playlist so I can only tell you the ones I remember-the ones that really stuck with me. And here they are…

Being Jamie Baker & More Than Jamie Baker playlist

BSB What Makes You Different (Makes You Beautiful) – Backstreet Boys
Brooklyn Is Burning – Head Automatica (totally Jamie’s theme song!)
Your Love Is My Drug – Ke$ha
My Life Would Suck Without You – Kelly Clarkson
Cooler Than Me – Michael Posner
Kissin U – Miranda Cosgrove
Girlfriend – *NSync
Miracle – Paramore

For More Than Jamie Baker I just listened to the Jamie 1 soundtrack over again, and never really added any new songs. It still felt perfect. But For Jamie 3 I had a few to add to that list. Still, I liked having fan pics on the first list, so I opened it up to my Reader Squad to submit suggestions to add to the list, and again, they totally nailed it. It was hard to narrow the choices down!  (I used 4 of my personal picks. When Did Your Heart Go Missing by Rooney, It Girl by Jason Derulo, Can’t Stop the Feeling by Justin Timberlake, and You Are My Sunshine by Elizabeth Mitchell.)
