I am often asked about my playlist for a particular book, or for my writing in general. I wish I had a cool list of songs to share with my readers, who would then think I was doubly cool for both being a writer AND listening too cool tunes.

But alas, I am not cool, nor am I intelligent enough to write at the same time I listen to music. If I listen to something with words, I get completely distract by the lyrics and forget to write. To get around this problem, I will sometimes listen to songs in another language, so I can have music but not be distracted. One of my all time favorite albums is by Thomas Dutronc, a French musician whose father was also a French folk singer.

So, it’s a good bet that any of my books will, at some time, have seen me listening to this song: Thomas Dutronc – J’aime plus Paris:
