Channel Your Brave 10 Songs / Amy


Amy Joy Lutchen
Meet Amy Joy Lutchen!
 Was born in Chicago and slept in a dresser drawer for the first few weeks of my life, marking me as a future claustrophobe.

I studied at the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana (man I grew up quick), where I became a number, but decided it was a good number.

I write with plenty of snacks in hand, making sure they are not in multiples of three. That number makes me nervous.

Author of the Renhala series.

10 Songs That Help Amy Channel Her Brave

1. "What Goes Around.../...Comes Around" by Justin Timberlake. 

Karma, eh?

2. "Don't You (Forget About Me)" by Simple Minds.

 Nobody wants to be forgotten.

3. "You've Got the Love" by Florence and the Machine.

Love is a great superpower.

4. "Every Day is Halloween" by Ministry.

The goth, mosh-pit lover in me always surfaces to battle when that song enters my ears.
5. "Everything's Gonna Be Alright" by Bob Marley.

I don't think I need to explain that one.

6. "Blow" by Ke$ha

7. "Rhiannon" by Fleetwood Mac.

8. "Me & Bobby McGee" by Janis Joplin.

9. Anything Super Mario Bros.

LOL! I can't help but bop around when I hear it... And it makes my brain immediately switch into video game mode; I focus on hitting the bricks with my head.

10. "Rockin' Robin" by Bobby Day.

All you younglings may want to look that one up. I swear you'll be whistling that tune by the end of the day.
