Let The Beat Move You

I want to start off by saying thank you to the wonderful Miss Lucy Felthouse for hosting me today on her blog. It is an honor to be here.

You know when you turn on the radio, pop in your favorite CD or even press play on your MP3 player and the beat of the music gets you moving. All of a sudden you have all this energy and feel alive. You want to dance. Unknowingly you sway your hips and the beats makes your body move, or tap your foot as you work away doing whatever you do.

I’ve always had a passion for music, ever since I was a kid. Growing up I was introduced to a variety of genres of music and I embraced it. Even now I listen to everything, and when people ask me what exactly I like in music I can’t tell them a specific genre. I’m very eclectic.

Music is my love, just like writing and books. It’s the breath of life for me, my addiction, and my obsession.

So you probably wonder how does my listening to music tie into me being a writer.

Well I listen to music all the time while I write. I’m one of those people who do not require quiet to work. Quiet bothers me. That doesn’t mean I want total chaos and noise all around me. I just would rather have music on. So if you don’t already know I write erotic romance. So Savannah are you saying you listen to dirty music because you write naughty stories? LOL.

No? Not all the time…

As I mentioned I listen to it all…Recently I’ve started to develop playlists for certain moods.

For example I have a playlist called SEX for when I am working on love scenes in my stories…Some of the songs on the list are
Jeremiah- 5 Senses
Kings of Leon- Sex on Fire
Blake McGrath- The Night (Only Place To Go
Kelly Rowland- Motivation
The Weekend- High For This

The list is fairly long but all the songs are sexy and meant to inspire me while I write those hot, delectable sex scenes.

I also have a Classical List which is for the romantic scenes when I need to get into the headspace. Something that is the opposite of writing about love making or just raw passionate, table tossing, wall banging sex.

Yiruma- River Flows Through You
Bach – Double Violin Concerto in D minor 2nd movement, Largo
Apocaliptica- Beautiful
Apocaliptica- Fade To Black

For me music evokes emotions, and I’m very specific to the kind of music I listen to when I write. If I need to write dark I listen to heavier songs that have a dark tone too them. They seem to help the words just flow through my fingers. There are times when I look back and wonder if I wrote this because it just turned out so well.

My latest release is called Six Degrees of Passion, and it is a collection of BDSM lifestyle flashers that were written by six very different authors. When I was working on my stories for this collection I was listening to a lot of Linkin Park. Their music has changed with each album and the one song that really inspired me is called Powerless.


Here is a little bit about the collection…

Six Degrees of PassionImagine a world full of boundless passion, where the intimate touch of a man or woman and the desperate cravings pent up inside, leave you breathless with anticipation. Passion and desire come in many forms, and some of the most powerful moments shared between consenting adults can include aspects of the BDSM lifestyle. When you love someone with all your heart and soul, will the passion you feel give you enough to submit total control? The journey into the lifestyle is uninhibited, complete with trust and understanding, and few of us ever experience these heightened levels of joy.

Join six talented writers as they bring you varying aspects of the BDSM lifestyle in sizzling pieces of flash fiction. These snippets are designed to draw you into the heat of passion-filled nights, with unbridled looks at highly erotic sessions. Included are Kiki Howell’s tales of the paranormal, where vampires and witches fight for the very souls of humanity and each other. Cassandre Dayne’s scorching stories of passion stretch the boundaries of our secret fantasies. Benjamin T. Russell’s captivates with intense glimpses into a Dom’s understanding of a submissive’s deepest needs. In addition, Savannah Chase has a sensual, soul wrenching and yet gripping way of sharing the powerful intimacy experienced between women. Abby Hayes gives you highly charged and quick-witted tales of kink between multiple partners that will keep you guessing to the end. Finally, DH Black, will leave you shuddering with her gritty and sometimes brutal aspects of showing the darker side of BDSM.

Each tale entertains while leaving the reader trembling for another installment. Indulge. Fantasize. Delve into the darker side of passion…

    Great post, Savannah. Music can change the way I write a scene. I like Nickelback and Hinder to put me in the male headspace. Writing the “Take it to the wall” scenes with high energy, Jesse Cook. He is a master with the guitar.
    My hubby is the Linken park listener in the house.
    Love the videos

    One of the first things I do if a scene isn’t coming easily is change the music I’m listening to. I hadn’t thought about play lists for different types of scenes<–I'm so going to do this. Fab post, thanks for sharing, Savannah.
