Playlist update

Need to fill you in on some Outlander Playlist happenings...

First - I just realized I added the wrong "Adagio for Strings". Whoops. It was some electronic version that actually made me tinkle slightly when I realized my mistake. Can you imagine? A quick and steady beat that sounds like the music Jason Biggs danced to in American Pie - right after Culloden?? Shudder. Soooo - it promptly came off - and the correct version was added.

Second - I've mentioned that this playlist encompasses all the books - or at least the ones I've read so far. What I haven't mentioned - because I just realized it - is that it sortof skips from Claire deciding to stay with Jamie in 1743 after the witch debacle in Outlander to Claire reuniting with Jamie after snogging him out of jail in Dragonfly in Amber! Holy cow! That won't do! I need some more songs on this thing, no Sassenachs?!

Soooo...I promise to do that soon. I also promise to put together a post that shows what scenes I see in my head during each of these songs.

OK that's all for me - gotta go read - kthxbye.


  1. Wahhhhh!!!! Where are my suggestions?? In case you need a reminder, you Sassenach wench, they were:

    • In My Life by the Beatles (or any other late 60s reflective Beatles song)--perfect for the Roger/Bree scenes in early Drums

    • "You're My Home" by Rebecca Elliott--AMAZINGLY lovely cover of one of my favorite Billy Joel songs--I love this song but really wanted to hear a woman sing it so it's in Claire's POV. Go here to hear it:'re+My+Home

    • "The Power of Two" by the Indigo Girls--Best song EVER for last part of Outlander when Claire is exorcising Jamie's demons. "I'm stronger than the monster beneath your bed"--!!!!!!

  2. I was going to add You're My Home but the Rebecca Elliott version isn't on Haven't heard The Power of Two and it's not on either.

  3. Wait--you can't just add any song you want? Well that blows. Can't you make a playlist through iTunes?
