Writing WDKY isn’t something that one does in silence. Rather, several songs inspired scenes or entire chapters of the story, and additional songs have inspired me to continue WDKY after the initial storyline has run its course.

For your listening pleasure, here are some songs that have inspired scenes or that I envision as part of a “soundtrack” to the What Doesn’t Kill You saga. You can purchase them from the iTunes US store. Some songs may not be available as a single track, or may not be available without purchase of a streaming subscription (Apple Music).

The songs are presented in alphabetical order by artist.
