Listen to Llarjme's Craving U Playlist and let yourself be blown away by it
*I tried to hate you, to forgive you, all just to forget you, but I'm only capable of loving you. You're tattooed onto my skin, and the more I try to erase you, the deeper you sink in* from "Craving U".
These are a few of the many songs that popped in my head while writing and editing Craving U, linked up with some *QUOTES from the book*:
No Ordinary Love by Sade: *Most people think that love doesn't stand the test of time - that it is eternal only as long as it lasts - but love is an unquenchable flame. It is only the fires of momentary desire that burn too fast and go out far too quickly without leaving behind a single trace.*
Ridere di te by Vasco Rossi: *Matt shrugged his shoulders. "Didn't see her." And his indifference toward other girls was like a drug for her. The drive home lasted on average just under fifteen minutes, and the first five were spent in silence, listening to Vasco Rossi...*
Rather Be by Clean Bandit ft. Jess Glynne
Crave You by Flight Facilities (Adventure Club Dubstep Remix): *As if she was magnetic, Matteo's eyes locked onto her, and his body followed straight after, slicing through the cordon of friends in order to be next to her. Moving to the rhythm, he stared into her eyes, begging her silently not to move away from him, while she, enchanted by the fragrance of the ocean in his cologne, let herself be commanded by his wishes in this silly, serious private game.*
Amalfi by Hooverphonic
DNA by Empire Of The Sun: *Fame may make you feel like a god, but every man is born free, free to choose between good and evil.*
Hall of Fame by The Script (feat. will.i.am)
Set Fire to the Rain by Adele: *It was just past two in the afternoon when Marika's smartphone began to play the refrain from Adele's Set Fire to the Rain, the ringtone that best fit her mood of total confusion...*
Burn by Ellie Goulding
Somebody That I Used To Know by Gotye (feat. Kimbra): *... the very words that she would have liked to scream in his face, even if she did still need his love.*
Hideaway by Kiesza
Angels by Within Temptation: The last cover song that the "S in S" played at The Dark Crow in the Battle of the Bands. *Original song: He's not yet realized that by giving away nothing but barefaced lies he's come to wither and rot inside. But she's still looking for him into the void of his cold heart... "You know he finished writing your song?" The dark Lolita with porcelain skin acted as if nothing at all had happened. "It's amazing, you really should listen to it."*
Lullaby by The Cure
Kings by The Pierces: *When Marika and her ride got to The Rook, the party was already going in full force, wheeling and spinning about its king and self-proclaimed queen, and after taking one look at it all, Marika's only desire was to run away and continue lying to herself that it wasn't true.*
Things We Lost In The Fire by Bastille
Seguimi O Uccidimi (Cut me loose) by Sonohra (original Italian version): *Marika, though, felt like she would implode if she didn't scream out her loneliness, and so she beat her complicated cousin to the stereo and put on a song by Sonohra... Taking the karaoke to heart, she threw herself into a dramatic, exaggerated rendition of the offensive pop rock song: "Hear the sound of my heart that's beating loud!"*
Maps by Maroon 5
Wicked Game by Chris Isaak: *Leaving her behind had been the most difficult thing to do, and the song playing on the radio, Wicked Game, the huge, melancholy hit by Chris Isaak, dragged him back cruelly to that moment. "No, I don't wanna fall in love - this world is only gonna break your heart - with you." It was too painful to think about her; he needed safety and comfort, which he could only find in his family.*
Words As Weapons by Birdy
Daniel by Bat For Lashes: *Marika's words about her star-crossed love reminded Eve of these lyrics by Bat for Lashes, which she now sang in a voice strained with harmonic tensions as it rose toward the climax... Nothing was more painful than a slow farewell to lost dreams.*
Battlefield by Lea Michele: *Her heart was telling her to trust him, but it wouldn't be the first time that that foolish muscle, there in the middle of her chest, had betrayed her...*
18 And Life by Skid Row: *The state exams came and went, as did her 18th birthday, celebrated quietly, but there was no more news of him. Some said that he had gone on vacation with his teammates before the team retreat in Val Seriana at the end of July, others claimed that he had already moved to Milan. But the only certain thing was that Matteo was no longer there.*
Waves by Mr. Probz
With Me by Sum 41: That summer day, sitting underneath the Corinthian arch of a portico in one of the vineyards hosting a "wine and art" show... *"I like this song. Who's it by?" Marika mumbled, her mouth filled with caramelized sugar while she listened to Federico's iPod through one half of a set of earphones. "Sum 41." He watched the sun darting rays into her eyes and a smile cross her face when he dedicated the lyrics to her.*
Your Latest Trick by Dire Straits
Celestica by Crystal Castles: *All of a sudden, though, the chat ended. Eve was no longer online. Frightened, her heart pounding, Marika called Federico. "Hello?" Her voice was shaking as her lips brushed against the phone. "Fede, I'm worried about Eve. You have to find her. Right away! She's turned off her phone and I'm scared to death." She was as white as a sheet. "Go find her, I'm begging you. Find her!"*
Forbidden Colours by Ryuichi Sakamoto (Solo Piano): *Marika was in desperate need of a good rouge that would mask her wistful longing for last Christmas and for that fragile, slightly bittersweet sound of the Oriental koto which had animated the chords of vinyl tech-house... "You can't run away from what you are. No matter where you go, your feelings are going to follow you."*
