UPDATED – Soundtrack – From Exes to Expecting (Sutter Creek #1)

In the year and a half since From Exes to Expecting (Sutter Creek #1) released, I’ve joined the modern age and signed up for Spotify. I had so much fun putting together the soundtrack for A Father for Her Child (Sutter Creek #2) on Spotify that I thought I’d update FETE’s playlist, too. I’ve kept my original post intact below the embedded Spotify playlist, in case you missed it (it has the track listings and all the songs in video form on YouTube). I hope you enjoy! And stay tuned for the soundtrack for Holiday By Candlelight (Sutter Creek #3) coming in October. Newsletter subscribers will be notified first, so be sure to sign up here.

One of my favourite parts of plotting a book is picking a soundtrack to go with it. There’s something about finding songs that match character traits, journeys, and emotions that is so damned satisfying. And given how long ago that I wrote the first draft of From Exes to Expecting, I’ve had some of these songs picked out for a long time. For the sake of making it accessible for everyone, I turned it into a YouTube playlist. Lyric quotes and explanations for why I picked the songs are under the video link. I hope you enjoy the listen, and if you can think of anything to add, let me know!

  1. P!nk – Who Knew – “Remember when we were such fools…”
  2. Grace Potter and the Nocturnals – Stars – “Make me wonder where you are… If I know you at all, I know you’ve gone too far.”
  3. Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds – Some Devil – “You said always and forever, now I will leave you, baby…”
  4. Maren Morris – Once – “Somehow we make it alive, and both get out on the other side, oh, this might be asking a lot. When it’s all said and done, don’t forget that you loved me once.”
  5. Harry Styles – Two Ghosts – “We’re not who we used to be. We’re just two ghosts standing in the place of you and me, trying to remember how it feels to have a heartbeat.”

  10. John Mayer – In the Blood – I can feel love the I want, I can feel the love I need, but it’s never gonna come the way I am. Could I change it if I wanted, can I rise above the flood? Will it wash out in the water, or is it always in the blood?”
