Four Basic Principles – The Playlist
Hi! I’m Bianca Mori, author of Tame The Kitten, The Takedown Trilogy, One Night At The Palace Hotel and Four Basic Principles, a story in the Summer Feels #romanceclass anthology. Four Basic Principles is about what happens when two people who’ve had a one night stand are trapped together on an out-of-town trip (aawwwkwaaarddd), and the four basic principles in the title relate to the four basic principles of graphic design, since my male character, Gelo, works as a graphic designer in Europe. (Also, has abs. Just saying.)
I had these songs in my head while writing this story and I hope you enjoy them too!
Saints – The Breeders
I’ve loved this song since I was 13 and the refrain—“Summer is ready when you are”—is always in my head when I get ready for a vacation.
Cruel Summer – Bananarama
The lyrics’ general annoyance at the heat of summer just cracks me up.
Down by the Water – PJ Harvey
Super creepy song about child murder (!!!) but I like the vibe of this to convey Cass’ fear of the sea.
The Jaws Theme
Because even though I love snorkeling, like Cass, this movie scarred me for life, yo.
Angel of the Morning – The Pretenders
A classic, heartbreaking one night stand song, I love Chrissie Hynde’s version the most (and flailed at this Friends cameo.)
Say Goodbye – Dave Matthews Band
Supposedly inspired from an incident when Dave was snowed in with a friend, this one really sets the mood of one thing leading to another: “Tomorrow go back to being friends, but tonight let’s be lovers.”
Save Tonight – Eagle-Eye Cherry
This went completely over my head as a one night stand song when I first heard it in high school, but I know better now.
