As many of you know, I listen to music while I write. It inspires me and often takes the story in new directions. And sometimes, songs make it into the story itself. This time I went all out, making the main character a music lover from the 80s. Exo Hunter is full of music references, and it also includes lyrics from the Talking Heads masterpiece, “Once in a Lifetime,” for which I obtained permission. I wanted to make these songs easy for readers to find, so I’ve assembled them in a YouTube playlist. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! If you would like to create your own Exo Hunter playlist on the platform of your choice, the full list is below the video.

Thanks to some fans, you can also listen to the Exo-Hunter playlist on….
