The Gilded Cage Playlist

It’s always interesting to me to see just what types of songs can inspire a scene or novel. The Canary Club books have been an electrifying mix of traditional Jazz and possibly my new favorite thing ever, Electro Swing. Here is the playlist I used for creating Gilded Cage:

Lone Digger by Caravan Palace

This one is just such a cool, upbeat tune, I could totally see Masie bouncing around to this in the club.

We Found Love (cover) by Postmodern Jukebox

This is already my go-to for the more romantic scenes in the books, so slow and jazzy.

Let’s Misbehave by Irving Aaronson & His Commanders

A true classic of the period. So fun and liberating.

You Don’t Love Me by Caro Emerald

I just love her voice. This is what Masie sounds like in my head.

Booty Swing by Parov Stelar

This entire album in on my phone. Its impossible to be sad and listen to this music.

A Little Party Never Killed Nobody by Fergie and GoonRock and Q-Tip

I have most of the new Great Gatsby soundtrack, but this is hands down my favorite.

We Can’t Stop (cover) by Postmodern Jukebox

I feel like Miley would be right at home in this period, she would be the flapperest of flappers.
