Old Things Die (But Not Us) -- Playlist

An Essay By Madalyn Clare // 7/1/2019

We pause for a roadtrip playlist break! These are the songs that really inspired Old Things Die (But Not Us). I sort of imagined that these would be the things Levi and Maren MIGHT be listening to currently as they drive to Irvine, not knowing what may await them...

I think one song that really drove home for Josh is Mikrokosmos by BTS. It is originally in Korean and I haven't found an English cover I love yet, but I recommend looking up the song with English translation. The song was written as if people are stars, imagining that everyone's personal history makes them shine. Each individual person on this earth is created beautiful and the experiences each of us lives through makes us shine. It's a song that really made me feel this certain happiness and peace just imagining in my head. I can just imagine Josh writing about this.

And more. Comment some songs you think might work for the story!
What's one song that seems to drive your current writing project?


I love that you have songs

I love that you have songs inspiring your story. I love music, so I think that's so awesome! I'm afraid I haven't heard most of these, though. I want to go listen to some of them!

Hmm...I can't think of any other songs at the moment that would work for the story.
