Shadow World Song Lyric List

As you have no doubt noticed, music plays a pretty significant role in the novels – it’s a hazard of having a musician for a main character.

I make playlists of mood/theme songs for each book as I’m writing it, which of course you can look at and listen to, but just for quick reference I thought I’d list the songs that are directly quoted in each book.  The versions listed here are as far as I know the original recordings of each song rather than covers; on the playlists I often prefer covers.

    I love your Song List! I’m reading Shadow’s Fall at the moment and I love it so much. Listening to “Rain” while reading your book. Thank you.
