Full Playlist for An Ember in the Ashes: Laia

Full Playlist for An Ember in the Ashes: LaiaYesterday, I put up the full playlist for Elias Veturius, one of the characters from An Ember in the Ashes. As I said then, without music, I could never have written the book. And without playlists, I could never have accessed Laia or Elias’s psyches. For the next few days, I’ll share the entire EMBER playlist (more than 200 songs) over a series of character-based posts. Today is Day 2: LaiaLaia is a Scholar girl living under the iron-fisted rule of the Martial Empire. When her brother, Darin, is taken from her by Empire soldiers, Laia must overcome a lifetime of fearfulness, and find a way to get him back. Here, I’ve shared Laia’s main playlist, as well as her playlists with other characters, each of which reflects her mindset when thinking of that character.   I hope you guys enjoy! Next week, I’ll post up the playlist for Helene.LaiaAll the Rowboats — Regina SpektorSwandive — Ani DifrancoBlow Away — A Fine FrenzyColorblind — Performed by Natalie WalkerEverything in Its Right Place — Radiohead, Hybrid MixFear — Sarah McLachlanGenerator (First Floor) — Freelance WhalesLost Yourself — EminemInto the Wild (Live)New Soul—Yael NaimDissolve Me—Alt-JBloodflood—Alt-JSeether—Veruca SaltThe Shade of Poison Trees—Dashboard ConfessionalMy Life—The Game/Lil WayneI Still Havent Found What I’m Looking For—U2Laia & DarinIntervention—Arcade FireOpen Invitation—Black Rebel Motorcycle ClubBreak It Down Again—Tears for FearsBridge Over Troubled Water—Johnny Cash and Fiona AppleBrother (Last Ride)—Lord HuronChange (In the House of Flies)—DeftonesGone Away—Lucy SchwartzHelplessness Blues—Fleet FoxesHow to Save a Life—The FrayFaint—Linkin ParkLost in My Mind—The Head and the HeartMaps—Yeah Yeah YeahsThe Other Side of Mount Heart Attack—LiarsPushing me Away—Linkin Park (Reanimation Remix) Laia & EliasAll I Want Is You—U2Call to Arms—Angels and AirwavesCandles—DaughterChase this Light—Jimmy Eat WorldElectric Twist—A Fine FrenzyGimme Your Love—MorcheebaI’m With You—The StillsLittle Talks—Of Monsters and MenHigh and Dry—RadioheadFair—Remy ZeroRun—Snow PatrolCherry Red—Life’s AddictionThe Scientist—ColdplayThinking of You—Katy PerryHumpty Dumpty Love Song—TravisUltraviolet—U2Use Somebody—Kings of LeonGirls—Death in VegasIn Your Room—Depeche Mode Laia & KeenanAll of This—Blink 182Almost Lover—A Fine FrenzyBreak Me Gently—DovesTake Your Love Away—VastTear in Your Hand—Tori AmosTrembling Hands—The Temper TrapUninvited—Alanis MorissetteVideo Games—Lana Del ReyViolent Silence—Beatrice EliYou Only Disappear—Tom McRaeYoung and Beautiful—Lana Del Rey
 

Yesterday, I put up the full playlist for Elias Veturius, one of the characters from An Ember in the Ashes. As I said then, without music, I could never have written the book. And without playlists, I could never have accessed Laia or Elias’s psyches. For the next few days, I’ll share the entire EMBER playlist (more than 200 songs) over a series of character-based posts. Today is Day 2: Laia

Laia is a Scholar girl living under the iron-fisted rule of the Martial Empire. When her brother, Darin, is taken from her by Empire soldiers, Laia must overcome a lifetime of fearfulness, and find a way to get him back.

Here, I’ve shared Laia’s main playlist, as well as her playlists with other characters, each of which reflects her mindset when thinking of that character.
