storyteller and all-around creative distraction

songs for stalking, a playlist for my writer friends…

Have you ever written a stalker protagonist before? My friends and I were talking about this this evening, and they helped me compile a list of some more twisted love songs.

Yes, I’ve written one. A short story. Her name is Leslie, she likes to jog (past people’s houses…), lol!

Also pasting the list here. There were some songs not available on Grooveshark, and also, Grooveshark likes to delete songs over time, so here’s a static list for reference:

“Meg White” by Ray LaMontagne
“Every Breath You Take” by The Police
“Olive Grove Facing the Sea” by Snow Patrol
“Possession” by Sarah McLachlan
“Lily” by Smashing Pumpkins
“Hungry Like the Wolf” by Duran Duran
“I Put a Spell on You” by Creedence Clearwater Revival
“Love Letter” by Bonnie Raitt
“The Blower’s Daughter” by Damien Rice
“I Will Posses Your Heart” by Death Cab For Cutie
“#1 Crush” by Garbage
“Creep” by Radiohead
“Possum Kingdom” by the Toadies
“Strange and Beautiful (I’ll Put a Spell on You)” by Aqualung
“Watching Alice” by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
“One Way or Another” by Blondie
“Stan” by Eminem

Happy writing! Or not so happy, depending on whose point of view you’re writing it from! 😉

  • Oooh, “I Will Possess Your Heart” is a great one! Love Death Cab. And yes, that song has a distinctly “stalker” tint to it. “And I long for this mirrored perspective — when we’ll be lovers, lovers at last…” Haha. Creepy!
