Music plays a very big part in the telling of Maggie and Aidan's story because it's a very big part of how Maggie defines herself as person; her music even informs her wardrobe choices. And I listened to all the music mentioned in the book. I listen to all the bands whose concert tee's Maggie wears. Her playlists are my playlists. The only artist, album, or song not mentioned that did play a big part in the creation of Fated Souls is that which inspired the original and now discarded title - You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth by the inimitable Meatloaf.
I've attached original concert footage here. This is the version I was inspired by while writing. Enjoy!
