We had a blast putting together fantasy soundtracks for songs to play while you read Door to Door and for songs to play while reading Through the Door.
And now, it’s time for a Doors Wide Open soundtrack! WOOT!
The Soundtrack to Doors Wide Open

Here’s the list: I thought it might be fun for you to play these songs while you read – just to get a flavor of what I heard in my head while I wrote and pictured scenes. 🙂 If you have an Alexa, or stream / download music on a device, here’s the Doors Wide Open soundtrack:
- Caution Drones At Work, by Gordon Simmons – Play while reading the Prologue.
- I Won’t Back Down, by Tom Petty – Play in Chapter 3 when Tara asks Emily: How angry are you?
- Helter Skelter, by The Beatles – Play in Chapter 6 when Sebastian asks: Do you like fairytales?
- Let’s Get Metaphysical, by David Gilmore – Just the first 40 seconds of the song. – Play in Chapter 14 when Templeton says “Don’t move. It won’t hurt.” …and strokes Emily’s neck.
- I Am the Highway, by Audioslave – Play in Chapter 17 when The Tortoise asks: You’re Rabbit’s friend John Templeton, correct?

What about you?
What do YOU hear when you read? Tell me the song and chapter, but don’t reveal too many details that might fall under “spoiler alert!” Another reader might not be as far along in the book as you are!
