Reborn Music

RebornReborn will be released May 20. I know many of you have said you cannot wait, but in publishing, that’s not far away. There is a lot to be done between now and then. One of the things I am doing is looking for a theme song for Della. I have been searching the Internet, but I haven’t quite found the right song. I found Kylie’s theme song easily, or more like it found me. I had been looking everywhere, then I was driving down the road, listening to the radio and Natasha Bedingfield’s song Unwritten came on. It hit me like a ton of bricks. That was the perfect song for Kylie!



But now I need a song for Della and Reborn. I did find several that I thought might fit, so I’m posting them here. Tell me which one you like or suggest one of your own.

Cheryl Crowe’s The First Cut is the Deepest:

Kelly Clarkson’s Stronger:

Daughtry’s Over You:



This week I’m giving away three Shadow Falls posters to three people who leave comments. So let me know if you like one of these songs or suggest one of your own. (Sorry, this giveaway is only open to U.S. residents. And as always, if you are reading this on Goodreads, you must post your comment on my website blog for a chance to win.)

  1. I have a few suggestions although Im not sure its what your looking for but anyways…
    -Let It Burn by Red
    -Heart By Heart by Demi Lovato
    -Almost Is Never Enough by Ariana Grand

    And maybe try some Ellie Goulding songs too! Hoped I helped and if not…oh well:)

  2. These are some of the songs I listened to when reading Shadow Falls that might be Della-ish:

    -Holding Out For A Hero by Ella Mae Bowen
    -A Thousand Years by Christina Perri
    -Turning Tables by Adele
    -Breakaway by Kelly Clarkson

    Hoped I helped!! 🙂

  3. I like “Stronger”, but I don’t think it fits Della for the moment. She’s still sealed off when it comes to her heart. This song is about becoming stronger, which in my view means find the courage to embrace everything you’re afraid of. I’ll try to see if I can find some songs.

  4. I think the songs that would best fit della would be
    …Bullet Proof by La Roux
    …Alanis Morissette-Madness
    …Alanis Morissette – not as we
    …Amy Lee- Sallys song
    …Evanescence- my immortal
    … Evanescence – good enough
    i think these would most fit della im not sure whese songs i think of do u think when ever i hear th

  5. Hi CC, I know I can’t win but I wanted to comment. There is a band that I think would suit Della’s personality well. They are called Muse. As a band they work well for her (in my opinion anyway). My reasoning is that they are under rated and eclective. They mix rock with orchestra and there is a song for any mood. I think ‘Butterflies and Hurricanes’ and ‘Undisclosed Desires’ suit her well. I hope you like these songs too,
    love Kellie (UK) xxx

  6. Hey C.C.!

    While I love Over You by Chris Daughtry I have two suggestions:

    – What’s left of me and you by 3 Doors Down
    – Turn Your Heary Around by Candlebox

    I think those two suit Della’s predicament

  7. I like stronger from this list. I have a few other songs that I feel would be go like Animal I’ve Become by Three Days Grace Fix Me by 10 Years Somewhere I Belong by Linkin Park. Other songs I think could fit into Shadow Falls in general are Bring Me To Life by Evanescence Monster by Paramore Invincible by Adelitas Way Breaking Rhe Habit by Linkin Park In Pieces by Linkin Park and Break by Three Days Grace.

  8. I’m partial to Kelly Clarkson’s Stronger from this list.

    Oooh another good one is Christina Aguilera’s Fighter. Remember that one from…holy cow…2002! And remember liking the lyrics and the video! Was in the top spots on TRL for its running back then! Think that would be another good one for Della!

  9. I think that ”Kill for lies”, from Ulrik Munther, is a good song to describe how Della feels about love, or about Lee (I’m thinking more of the refrain, but it doesn’t matter)
    Also, I liked The First Cut is the Deepest:)

  10. HEYYYYY!!!!!!!! CC!!! I found a theme song for the whole series! People like us-Kelly Clarkson I think it just sums it all up. For Della, Burn-Ellie Goulding

  11. Hey!
    I like the first cut is the deepest & stronger for Della. But I think a song that tells about Della overcoming her heartbreak from Chan and learning to let peoples into her heart again. It would fit together with shadow falls: after dark. Love Shadow Falls!!!

  12. Hey CC! The song Stronger is a really good song but I think Explosions by Ellie Golding is a great song! I hope this helped! Byeeeeee!!! 😉

  13. I like stronger by kelly clarkson, or heart by heart by Demi lovato, or my dillema by selena gomez, chchainsaw by the band perry also seems like it could fit.

  14. Here are a few suggestions. Not sure if they will help at all,but the lyrics of these songs reminded me of Della.

    Cold by Crossfade
    The new black by Moon Taxi
    Her portrait in black by Atreyu
    Bad reputation by Joan Jett
    Afraid by The Neighbourhood
    Glory and Gore – Lorde

  15. I can’t wait for Reborn to come out. Honestly, I can’t decide because I’ve heard most of them and they all fit Della’s personality in someway. I love listening to songs though, so I’ll keep looking and comment again if I find one that I think fits Della.

  16. Thats amazing!!!!! awesome songs and the one for Kylie is perfect!! and out of the three songs for della i would say that “Stronger” by kelly klarkson is the best fit for her. ill try and find one for her but she is a tough nut to crack adn figure out.

  17. beautiful by christina aguilera
    Lost It All by Black Veil Brides
    I Am Bulletproof by Black Veil Brides
    Wretched and Divine by Black Veil Brides
    Nobody’s Hero by Black Veil Brides

  18. Hey CC!

    First off I’m a HUGE fan, and you are an amazing author/person, but I don’t want to bore you with things you probably hear every day haha :3 Anyway I think it’s really funny how you picked the song Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield for Kylie’s song because it just so happens that your you-tubing fans picked Neon Lights also by Natasha Bedingfield to be her song. Haha what a coincidence! But I think they’re both great songs! Also I’m not going to leave suggestions for what Della’s song could be (though there are many) because I believe it’ll be something that just chooses you, probably when you’re driving again! You’ll just be listening to the radio and a song will come on and it’ll hit you and you’ll realize, “That’s the one!” Haha so you don’t really need our help because you’ll probably hear the perfect song soon enough. Maybe you already have by now! Haha but that’s all I wanted to say, and I absolutely can’t wait to read Reborn. Thanks for writing such awesome books! And good luck with the song searching! 😀 😀 😀

  19. So I really like your suggestions as well as every other suggestion, because all of these songs would fit Della really well. However, I personally think Della would be a Fall Out Boy kind of girl and I think her song would be Just One Yesterday by Fall Out Boy. Basically I think of Della every time that song comes on my iPod.

  20. Nice selection of songs. I prefer “Stronger” by Kelly Clarkson.
    I would like to suggest:
    The Naked & Famous – “Young Blood”
    The All-American Rejects – “Move Along”
    Daughter – “Youth”
    London Grammar – “Strong”
    Augustana – “Steal Your Heart”


  21. I think something deeper would be better
    Those are very awesome songs but it doesn’t capture Della completely
    I think you need to not only show how tuff Della is but also how emotional repressed she is. Something like missing by evanescence to show how she felt abandoned and uncared for by her family perhaps? But more powerful and less sad….

  22. I love all of your choices! Especially Daughtry. My suggestion would be “Demons” by Imagine Dragons. Not only is it a great song but I think it represents what Della is thinking and some of her insecurities, specifically love problems. Can’t wait for Reborn! 😀

  23. I love Stronger, but I think Della and Chan’s situation would be great with Say Something by A Great Big World

  24. I like stronger a lot and I also like the song you picked for Kylie. If I were to pick I would chose one of these songs:
    – Titanium by David Guetta
    – Brave by Sara Bareilles
    -Roar by Katy Perry
    Those would be my top three suggestions or I would say stronger. Hope it helped 🙂

  25. I love Stronger by Kelly Clarkson! what about Counting Stars by One Republic or The Monster by Rhianna and possibly Roar by Katy Perry or Dark Horse by Katy Perry

  26. The First Cut Is The Deepest (Sheryl Crow) awesome songs. I would Have given u all of my Heart But there’s Some1 who’s Torn it apart & He’s taking…..

  27. I really like Kelly Clarkson’s “stronger”, but here are a few that are good for Della too.
    •heart by heart by demi lovato.
    •let me go by Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroger.
    •roar by Katy Perry
    •people like us by Kelly Clarkson
    •dark horse by Katy Perry
    I hope this helps! 🙂

  28. I, too, think that the three songs you chose fit Della, but I also have a song that I think suits Della. (She’s my favorite character in the entire series and I was so happy when I heard you were going to write a book about her!) I thought that maybe “The Ballad of Mona Lisa” by Panic! At the Disco could work. If you listen to the song’s lyrics, it might not make sense, since it sounds like a guy and a girl having problems, so I’ll just explain to you why I thought that song reminded me of her. (This might be a long comment… sorry D:) The lead singer of the band said that the meaning behind the song was about struggles within himself and fighting the dualities of his personality (I looked it up XD), so I thought that the song’s meaning was a bit like what Della was going through. Of course, this was just my opinion. 😀
    I can’t wait to read “Reborn”, I hope my suggestion helped! Thanks C.C. Hunter! 😀

  29. I love the song Unwritten and Stronger. They totally summarize her life!! A song I think of when I think about Della is, Complicated. Describes her relationship with a certain person….LOL

  30. Those are some great songs! If I may I have a few suggestions.
    -One more, SuperChick
    -Not gonna die tonight, Skillet (my favorite!)
    -Young Blood, The naked and Famous


  31. I think that Sheryl Crow’s the first cut is the deepest would be good for Della because Della gets her heartbroken by Lee and has a hard time falling for anyone else because of him.

  32. Nice songs for Della’s personality.

    “Can’t Fight the Moonlight” – by LeAnn Rimes, a message to tell her to stop blocking her own heart.

  33. I am having a little trouble thinking of a good song so here are some:
    ~ Eyes Open by Taylor Swift
    ~ Titanium by David Guetta
    ~ Keep Holding by Avril Lavigne
    ~ Iridescent by Linkin Park
    There, I couldn’t think of anymore. Hope you like it.

  34. I think that you should add some octane music. Or dub step mixes that is what is in right now!Ill looks for so songs I hear them all the Tim and remind me of these charecters

  35. hello C.C, I know you will never get to read my comment, but I want to tell you that I am very grateful to you, today I am a person with dreams and motivation, through your books, I managed to go through a very difficult time in my life. I really wanted some of your books to be translated here in Brazil, but I’ll wait anxiously. Thank you very much, my warrior.
