Poppy and Justin Song #1

I am not sure how many people read these random posts when they are not making an update announcement but I was writing and had my i-tunes on shuffle. It seemed as if one song after another could fit for Justin and Poppy from A Pocketful of Poppies and I wanted to start posting some of them so everyone could listen to them and perhaps get in the mood for the story when they read it.

Below, is Street Lights by Kanye West and I picture it as definitely being a Justin song. Give it a listen to below and let me know what you think. I hope to have an update soon of either this story or When Night is Almost Done so be on the look out for either of those. Thank you.

One of the things I've always loved about your work is how music is used to enhances the stories. You usually use some of my favorites and have introduced me to new artists or unknown songs from artists that I already knew.

I've currently been listening to the new Rachael Yamagata album and the song "Duet" with Ray LaMontagne stands out as one of my favorites. I don't really know if it goes along with any of your current stories, but I would love to see a story that you wrote that uses that song for part of the plot. So give it a listen sometime and see if it inspires you to write another amazing story. If I had the time or creativity I would try, but I'd much rather read something from you.

Oh, and I'm glad that you are going to edit and repost "Everything will be Alright."

Loved the song! And I love it when you post random things like artwork and songs, it totally adds to the stories and expands my music collection! Cant wait for the next update and for the rewrite if "Everything Will Be Alright"!

I really liked listening to that song. I like Kanye West but I never thought he sang slower songs, that doesn't make sense, does it? Anyway, definitely a Justin song. Love it!

Oh and I just love reading your blog, whether its just songs or artwork, I still love it. New songs to listen to, new pictures to see.

Thank you!

I've been listening to Kanye West quite a bit recently, I love this song :] it's fitting as a Justin song.

Looking forward to more updates! I enjoy every aspect of your blog, in particular, the music related entries because, well, I'm a music fiend. And I'm always excited when I notice you've added another chapter to your stories.

May I be so bold to ask what the 'R' in Will's name stands for? I was reading Everything Will Be Alright over on AFF and I noticed I didn't catch what it stood for, the W.R. Kelly? I was just curious.

Hey Kate!

Good morning! I like that Kanye West song you have for Justin. Our dear Justin, a boy who can't reach his destination. I can't wait to hear the other songs you've picked for these characters. Today I will be checking your website a lot because I have a day off on a Saturday. I'm still in shock myself this is like a third Saturday off. I still have to read "When Night is Almost Done" chapter 5. I've been slacking in that story because I have to be in a certain mood to read it for some reason, I'm just weird like that. I'm going to give myself a pedicure and paint my toes with the most cheapest blackest nail polish I have and I just wanted to say thank you for keeping me entertain with your blogs, music, and stories.
