Music from Mistaken
Music has always been a big part of my life, so it isn’t surprising that I always am writing to music. Below are some songs that inspired various parts of Mistaken. I may not share exactly why each song fits so I don’t give away too much of the story, but if you read the book you might understand them a bit better.
7. Memories Remain & Do Or Die by Dropkick Murphys- Most likely what may have been playing when Dillan elbowed Jamie into the face the day the met.
8. The Ghost Of You by My Chemical Romance- Dillan’s nightmare and her feelings about everything that was hidden from her about Jamie.
9. Buried Myself Alive by The Used- The ride out to Dillan’s grandmother’s house.
10. Blue and Yellow by The Used- Talking about her parents.
11. All That I’ve Got by The Used- Hanging out at the stream. Another of my favorite songs.
12. Take It Away by The Used- Fits Trey’s rage after his conversation with Agent Luciano. Outside he looks calm, on the inside he is probably smashing everything in his reach.
13. Don’t Cry by Guns N’ Roses- Definitely is the song playing at the bar.
14. I think I Smell A Rat by The White Stripes- I can’t really say much about this song. J
15. Creep (Acoustic) by Radiohead- suits Dillan and Trey’s growing and very conflicted feelings.
19. Hang ‘Em High by My Chemical Romance- Trey discovering Dillan is gone and going after her.
20. If I Ever Leave This World Alive by Flogging Molly- Beautiful song. “She says I’m okay; I’m alright. Though you have gone from my life. You said that it would; now everything should be alright.” Best sung at a Flogging Molly concert at the top of your lungs with a beer in hand.
21. Good Life by OneRepublic- My song for Trey. If this were a movie, this would fit the ending as the camera slowly zooms up and away.

One year ago, two bullets from a .45 caliber pistol ripped away any hopes Dillan had of a future with her fiancé, Jamie. On the anniversary of Jamie’s death, the appearance of his estranged twin brother, Trey, leaves Dillan wondering what other secrets her prefect fiancé was hiding. When Trey learns of his brother’s death, Dillan takes pity on him and gives him a place to stay.
Trey’s erratic behavior and a series of suspicious phone calls lead Dillan to believe that Trey knows more about the circumstances surrounding Jamie’s death than he’s letting on. With all leads exhausted and Jamie’s murderer still on the loose, Trey is Dillan’s last hope for finding the truth.
Sometimes the truth hurts… but in Dillan’s case it could kill her.
