An Earthly King Blog Tour: Final Day and Book Playlist

It's the final day of An Earthly King's blog tour! First off, thanks to everyone who hosted, followed and took part in this! I had a great time hearing from readers both old and new :-) I am really happy to hear so many people are excited about this series!

Today, I wanted to do something a little different for the wrap up of the tour and share my playlists from both Blood Ties and An Earthly King. Below are the lists for each book. Eventually, I plan to make playlists on Youtube but I just didn't have the time right now. I'm sure some of the songs will not make sense to anyone but me, but I hope you enjoy them all the same :-) Let me know if there's any you think should be added.

Blood Ties

An Toll Dubh- Runrig
An Sabhal Aig Neill- Runrig
Moving- The Secret Garden
Rocky Road to Dublin- The Countdown Singers
The Kilburn High Road- Flogging Molly
The Blood of Cu Chulainn- Jeff and Mychael Danna
The Return of the Eagle (The Musical Priest)- The Eagle Soundtrack
Devil's Dance Floor- Flogging Molly (This was the one that, if this was a movie, would play during the cage fight without a cage scene ;P)
Na Fianna Battle Song- (I can never find the artist for this one)
The Stamping Ground- Runrig (This is the one that, if this was a movie, would play at the end credits ;-)

The playlist for Blood Ties was kind of a mix of traditional Celtic soundtrack pieces and some more modern style folk songs. Runrig's Gaelic tracks may be technically Scottish Gaelic, but the sound of them lends to overall feel of the story and the world in my opinion. The soundtrack for An Earthly King was a little different, between some folk songs and other alternative songs that I felt went along with the story. Still completing that one, but I hope you like the selections so far.

An Earthly King

Tam Lin- Fairport Convention
Slow and Steady- Of Monsters and Men
Fairies Stole My Keys- Emerald Rose
Brother- Needtobreathe
Safe and Sound- Electric President
Battles- Al Lewis
Samhain's Eve- Damh The Bard
Reilly's Daughter- The Clancy Brothers (This is the song Proinsias sang for karaoke night)
The Ballad of Tam Lin- Steeleye Span

  1. Aaahh so cool! When I get some time, I'll have to try listening to these! Thanks for sharing! :) I SO enjoyed the blog tour! *throws confetti and shamrocks about*

    1. Thanks for participating :) I'll tweet the playlists when I get them made on Youtube and probably put them on GR as well, so that will be easier for everyone to listen to them.

    2. I've finally been listening to these and they're fantastic! :D

    3. I'm glad you're liking them :)

  2. I'll have to check some of these bands out! And that's the same version of Tam Lin that I listen to :)

    1. Both the Fairport Convention one and Steeleye Span are my favorites so I had to add them both :)

    2. Oh! I meant the Steeleye Span one.
