Song List

"Ten Toes Down" was orignally constructed as a movie in Brian's head before taking the form of a novel. As a nod to the original idea and because grown-up books never have any pictures, we kept the concept of a soundtrack as a way to illustrate some of the emotions and thoughts in the text. There are many, many songs we could have chosen for any of the chapters; these are the final twenty-eight that made the cut. They are hyper-linked for your convenient listening and, should you choose to add them to your play lists, we request that you use the available legal channels to do so.
