Incidental music…

Music is so important in my life, not just because I’m married to a rock and roll drummer! Through music I have made so many friends and met so many interesting people so it’s not surprising, therefore that music plays a part in many of my novels. I was interested to see how many songs are mentioned in my latest novel about Rosa Czekov. In this list I’ve sometimes named the performer, sometimes the composer and lyricist… sometimes they are the same people:


  •  I Wanna Hold Your Hand – Beatles
  • Pink Cadillac – Bruce Springsteen
  • Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow – Gerry Goffin and Carole King
  • Let’s Twist Again – Chubby Checker
  • Went Down To The Crossroads – Robert Johnson
  •  Cry Me A River –   Ella Fitzgerald
  • Strange Fruit –  Billie Holiday
  • ‘Breaking Up Is Hard To Do – Neil Sedaka
  • Don’t You Want Me, Baby – Human League
  • Smoke Gets In Your Eyes – Jerome Kern and Harbach
  •  Don’t Go Breaking My Heart – Elton John, Kiki Dee
  •  The Last Waltz – Engelbert Humperdinck
  • Dancing Queen – Abba
  • Wild Thing – Troggs
  • These Foolish Things – Bryan Ferry
  •  I’ll Be Seeing You – Sammy Fain, Irving Kahal.
