If Only We Tour: Playlist

I always find it very interesting what other people either enjoy listening to or what inspires them to write, so when Jessica asked for someone to feature a playlist for her new book I jumped at the chance.  This is what she had to say . . .
In If Only We, Adrienne goes to karaoke night at a coffee house with her friends. Like Adrienne, I'm not so much for singing in public, BUT, I am working on that. I absolutely love to pretend like I'm singing for an audience though... especially in my car. And also like Adrienne, I have the tendency to pick songs that aren't the usual karaoke kind of song.
Here is a list of the top ten songs I love to sing to now AND would love to sing in front of others someday.
Karaoke Playlist
  1. Geek In The Pink by Jason Mraz ~ This one's a lot of fun! I enjoy Jason Mraz and his music, but especially when the the singing is quick.
  2. We Didn't Start The Fire by Billy Joel ~ I must be crazy, right? If you've never heard it before, listen to it and see. I actually do know all the lyrics. It took a long time to memorize, and if I don't listen to it once in awhile, I do lose my place.
  3. Bye Bye Boyfriend by Fefe Dobson ~ The perfect song that every girl should sing when they need to get over a guy.
  4. How To Be A Heartbreaker by Marina And The Diamonds ~ I just discovered this one more recently on accident and couldn't stop listening to it, or singing it.
  5. We Are Broken by Paramore ~ There's so much depth to the lyrics, I love the passion in the song.
  6. Arrow Through Me by Wings ~ I ended up hearing this one after deciding to listen to the whole album on the record player. It became my favorite Wings song.
  7. Careless Whisper by Wham! ~ One of my favorite songs of ALL TIME. It's in the top ten. Okay, probably top five. I used to put this on repeat when I was younger.
  8. Take Me Under by Three Days Grace ~ This is my favorite band and one of my favorite songs by them. There's a lot of emotion in the words.
  9. I Want A New Duck by Weird Al Yankovic ~ How could I not sing at least ONE Weird Al song? I always go back to this one because it makes me laugh every time.
  10. Abracadabra by Sugar Ray ~ The strange thing is, I heard this version before the original by Steve Miller Band. And it has an edgier feel to it, which is nice.
No don't forget to stop by Jessica's blog or check out the rest of the tour (there is a Rafflecopter giveaway ).  And of course go out and get your copy of If Only We!
