Put Another Dime in the Jukebox, Baby

Your hero and heroine are at a restaurant.  The place has a jukebox and allows patrons to select two songs from the machine’s vast music library to be played during their meal.

What song would your heroine pick?

What song would your hero pick?

Feel free to share why the song is chosen.

I’ll post my answers in the comment section.

    From Rainbow:

    Natalie wouldn’t pick a song so Christopher would pick both. Wanna Love You Girl by Robin Thicke and Baby I’m For Real by The Originals

    From Bridesmaid:

    Deven: I’m The Only One by Melissa Etheridge
    Theo: Livin’ La Vida Loco by Ricky Martin

    I am writing a historical and they don’t have juke boxes in 1297 but if I wanted to move them forward to today…

    What song would your heroine pick?
    Willa – When You Say Nothing at All – Allison Krauss
    She finds peace, protection and love in Rhys’ quiet nature

    What song would your hero pick?
    Rhys – One – Vince Gill
    Willa makes him believe in dreams long forgotten

    I kind of figured you were separate people. 🙂

    My people don’t listen to music so I’d pick for them.

    Jumper by Third Eye Blind for Jacey

    and Human Touch by Bruce Springsteen for Connor.

    Why? ’cause Jacey is out on the ledge and Connor has finally found the only person he can connect with. Too bad she’s “that” close to jumping off.

  5. Heh, mine listen to music all the time, and I put what they’re listening to in the books. My UF heroine was listening to Radio Birdman earlier and my hero had Johnny Thunders playing in his car. 🙂

  6. In Animal Instincts Clodagh would pick The Sugababes ‘I know how I feel about you now’ and Jack would choose ‘I love it when you call’ by The Feeling.

  7. This is hard and easy at the same time. I have playlists on my itunes for different stories and some stories have a folder and each character has a list of songs that kind of embody their personality or reveal something about them.

    I have these songs for Secrets Uncovered:
    Irresistible by Jessica Simpson, Toxic by Britney Spears, and Naughty Girl by Beyonce, which would be more of Elena’s songs.

    My “male” songs on the list are: My Love by Justin Timberlake, Pony by Genuine and When I Get You Alone by Thicke.

    Granted, these characters are actually historical characters, so there actual choices would be different. But, I recently looked up English and Irish folk songs because I’m thinking of adding in a scene where some of the characters sing and play piano. I found this song called, “I Gave My Love a Cherry” which is perfect for the hero, Jamie–or, if Elena sings it, it would be perfect for Jamie to make provocative gestures all during her performance.

    In this second book where they’re a lot angrier, Griffin’s would be I Don’t Care What You Think by Fall Out Boy. ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NRIpc_QtSMc ) And Voirey’s would be Downfall by Matchbox 20. ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FKAF-HlZXKg I’m not familiar with this show in the video but this is the song anyway. )

    Faela would raise her eyebrows at the emotional need of others to grasp on to music as a way of describing how they “feel”

    Brennid would then put “Whatever it takes” on auto-replay and make her listen to it over and over and over and….
