Someone Else’s Life Blog Tour: Soundtrack to the movie by Katie Dale

Today I have the wonderful Katie Dale, Author of Someone Else’s Life, on the blog discussing the soundtrack of the book should it be made into a movie. There are some brilliant choices on here and I’ll pass you over to her to find out more!

Ever wondered what the soundtrack to your favourite book would be if it were a movie?
I thought it would be fun to have a go, so here are the songs that I think would be perfect for
the soundtrack to my debut YA novel, Someone Else’s Life… Enjoy!

River – Robert Downey Jnr

At the beginning of Someone Else’s Life it’s Christmas but Rosie is feeling far from festive, as she’s just
lost her mum. She gazes out on the snowy landscape and just wishes you could escape from her life.

It’s Raining Men – The Weathergirls

Rosie remembers a happy memory with her mother, singing their hearts out to ‘It’s Raining Men’ in the
pouring rain on Brighton seafront.

Fix You – Coldplay 

When she discovers her mother wasn’t really her mother, Rosie’s world falls apart. Luckily, her lovely ex-
boyfriend Andy is on the scene to try to help pick up the pieces – even if it means traveling all the way to
America in search of answers.

America – Razorlight

Iris – Goo Goo Dolls

New York, New York – Frank Sinatra

Andy and Rosie find themselves in Times Square on New Year’s Eve, and caught up in the buzzing
atmosphere they dance to New York, New York with thousands of others.

At The River – Groove Armada

In pursuit of a peaceful getaway they head to New England…

The One That Got Away – Katy Perry

But the path of true love never does run smooth…
[No more spoilers – the rest will make sense if you read the book!]

Pieces Don’t Fit Any More – James Morrison

Who You Are – Jessie J

I Hope You Dance – Ronan Keating

Wherever You Will Go – Charlene Soraia

Feels Like Home – Chantal Kreviazuk.

Unwritten – Natasha Bedingfield
