Spotify never ceases to blow my mind. In an effort to experiment and make it more social, I spent the morning going through THE DEVIL AND PRESTON BLACK to compile (curate, in hipster-speak)a soundtrack for the book. These are not the original songs for the book, which i hope to finish up in October. These are the songs that I mention either directly, or the song I had in mind while writing a particular scene. There's the link, and the list, so load it up and enjoy!

For the most part they are in order as they appear in the book. I was in the process of putting them all in exact order, and must've accidentally published the list, which wouldn't let me rearrange the track order. But this probably matters only to me...

Buy the book on Amazon.

  1. Wow. That took some time. Makes me want to do one for my book, but we all know there'd be mostly RHCP, Rise Against, LP, SOAD, Disturebed and Lady Gaga.

    Cool idea!
