The Soundtrack to The Longest Night of Charlie Noon

Posted by Christopher at 6:39pm

The Longest Night of Charlie Noon is out now and following on from the soundtracks I created for The Many Worlds of Albie BrightThe Jamie Drake Equation and The Infinite Lives of Maisie Daythere's a soundtrack for The Longest Night of Charlie Noon too.

These are the songs that soundtrack the story in my mind. Each chapter has its own track, so track one equals chapter one and so on. It starts with the song 'Wild Wood' by Paul Weller whose lyric says, 'we're going to find our way out of this wild, wild wood' and that's the challenge that Charlie, Dizzy and Johnny face. And the final song in the soundtrack is a wonderful track by Guillemots called 'Up On The Ride' which for me captures the feeling I'd like readers to take away from the novel as they turn the final pages.
