The Songs That Inspired the Stories: The Woburn Chronicles Spotify Playlist

I like my town with a little drop of poison
Nobody knows, they’re lining up to go insane

☝️ Those are the opening lines of “Little Drop of Poison” by Tom Waits, which is a song that perfectly encapsulates the vibe/mood/ambiance/atmosphere I was trying to create with my debut book, The Woburn Chronicles: A Trio of Supernatural Tales Set in New England’s Most Mysterious City.

Ultimately, over the course of several months, I would encounter several songs that would help inspire (and serve as background music for) the writing of the three short stories that comprise Chronicles.

So without further ado, here is the official Spotify Playlist for The Woburn Chronicles:
