Liza Palmer Party: The Music

Posted on Jan 29, 2015 in Liza Palmer, liza palmer party | 1 comment

The Liza Palmer Party in honor of the release of Girl Before a Mirror continues today with an important part of any celebration: the music! One of my favorite moments in this book is a scene where Anna talks about music. She prides herself on listening to a “certain kind” of music and sneaks “guilty pleasure” songs into her respectable playlists. I’ll let you read the book to find out how another character reacts to that little secret…
This book was just begging for its own soundtrack, so Hannah and I got to work. Girl Before a Mirror begins with the lyrics from the song below, so we absolutely had to highlight this beauty first. And below that you’ll find a playlist of twenty songs we felt represented emotions or scenes in this book. The playlist follows the order of the book, but we’re sharing the lyrics for the ten songs I picked my blog and Hannah has the lyrics for the last ten songs!

I got a ways to go / And I’m carrying a heavy load
But baby I want you to know / But baby I want you to know
That I never been so sure / And I never wanted nothing more
That you were who my love is for / You were who my love is for
Jill Andrews  My Love Is For


“You ain’t a beauty but hey you’re alright / Oh and that’s alright with me”

TRACK 1: Bruce Springsteen – Thunder Road


I just want to be ok, be ok, be ok / I just want to be ok today  I just want to feel today, feel today, feel today / I just want to feel something today 

TRACK 2: Ingrid Michaelson – Be OK

Hot as a fever / Rattling bones / I could just taste it / Taste it 
But it’s not forever / But it’s just tonight / Oh we’re still the greatest 
TRACK 3: Kings of Leon – Sex on Fire

You’ve held your head up / You’ve fought the fight / You bear the scars You’ve done your time / Listen to me / You’ve been lonely, too long  Let me in the walls / You’ve built around / We can light a match / And burn them down 

TRACK 4: Civil Wars – Dust to Dust


Fire burning me up / Desire taking me so much higher / And leaving me whole 

TRACK 5: Augustana – Fire


I don’t need you, I just want you / I can’t love you, I’m too scared to It’s not a trick that’s up my sleeve, it’s just the heart inside me 

TRACK 6: Colin & Caroline – More than Gravity


And I, I hate to see your heart break / I hate to see your eyes get darker as they close

 TRACK 7: Paramore ft. Joy Williams – Hate to See Your Heart Break


My heart’s against your chest, your lips pressed to my neck I’m falling for your eyes, but they don’t know me yet And with this feeling I’ll forget, I’m in love now

TRACK 8: Ed Sheeran – Kiss Me

There ain’t nothing in this world you’d like to be less than a wounded soul like me 
That’s what you’ll get falling for me 
TRACK 9: Johnnyswim – Falling for Me
 With a broken heart that’s still beating / In the pain, there is healing TRACK 10: Lifehouse – Broken
