I Love You to Death Playlist

I Love You to Death was hugely inspired by music. The simple act of me making a “mixed tape” was what created Luke in the first place and when it did, that boy just did not leave me alone. The music became his character and it inspired the whole relationship between Luke and Ash, because it’s an escape for her and a form of expression for him. It’s also what brings them together, so I had the idea of giving each chapter in I Love You to Death its own playlist, which gives you a glimpse into their growing relationship. Both the song’s title and lyrics describe so much of what’s happening in that particular chapter as well as between the two of them. When combined, the songs make up the soundtrack of their story. Every single one of these songs inspired me when writing this book and they also brought everything to life in my head. I can’t tell you how many times I listened to Alibi whilst getting a certain scene in A Perfect Ten exactly right….that voice, that sexy voice…if I was to pick it, that is exactly how I imagine Luke sounds. This is music from some of my most favourite bands and includes what I think are some of their best songs.
