Be still, my beating heart

Sticking my head up out of a pile of boxes, meerkat-like, to deliver an ode to Valentine’s Day: five love songs to help the heart beat stronger (some will be surprised to read that Love Will Tear Us Apart is not on this list).

1. Love Song, The Cure

2. Angel, Massive Attack

Watch the clip here.

3. Who Wants to Live Forever, Queen

4. To the Last Beat of My Heart, Siouxsie and the Banshees

5. Wild is the Wind, David Bowie

  1. I’ve been listening to “Who Wants to Live Forever” over and over lately. It’s inspiration for a character in my undoubtedly soon-to-be critically-accliamed, best-selling first novel. (Is it wrong that inspiration for another short story is Bonnie Tyler’s ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’?)

  2. It’s a gorgeous tune, isn’t it? If it’s inspired Highlander, I hope it works for you too!
