Top 5 Songs That Inspired Ascendent Part 2

Here’s part two of my top 5 songs, this time for my deuteragonist Elias.

5.) Moon Song by Anthony Green

Same as Work Song, this perfectly illustrates Elias at the beginning of the book.

 

4.) Noticed by MUTEMATH

This is, admittedly, slightly ridiculous; but so is being in love for the first time.

 

3.) Foreigner’s God by Hozier

Just as Sabine has a difficult relationship with her mother, Elias has an equally difficult one with his father.

 

2.) Remain Nameless by Florence + The Machine

This is for one of those moments where it’s meaningful to just be there for someone.

 

1.) To Be Alone by Hozier

I know, another Hozier song. But, if I had to pick just one song, it would be a three-way tie between this one, Foreigner’s God, and Moon Song. It’s a heady feeling to be seen as the person you are.

Top 5 Songs That Inspired Ascendent (Plus a Bonus Song!)

The current song count for the Ascendent playlist is 46; though, knowing me, that is likely to increase. However, I’ve decided to narrow that list down to the top 5 that inspired my protagonist Sabine.

5.) Work Song by Fallulah

This actually opens my playlist, and perfectly encapsulates Sabine at the beginning of the book. Life is work sometimes.

 

4.) Stolen Roses by Karen Elson

This song always symbolized the difficult relationship between Sabine and her mother for me.

 

3.) Arms Length by She Keeps Bees

The early stages of Sabine’s feelings for Elias (my top 5 for him is coming next).

 

2.) Make Me Stay by Gold Motel

This is for an ‘oh, fuck’ moment.

 

1.) Mother by Florence + The Machine

This is for the end, she’s mid-step in growing and there isn’t a tidy, clear cut ending.

 

Bonus: I’m On Fire by IO Echo

For my beloved little pyro, Sabine’s sister Fig.
