Happy New Year, Rockers!!
I’m so excited for all that 2012 will bring in the world of How to Rock Braces. Like, ohhhh, I don’t know…. the premiere of Nickelodeon’s brand new show How to Rock, airing February 4th? I’ve seen the pilot episode, and let me tell you– tuning in will most definitely be worth it. One of the things I’m most excited about is the original music that will be featured on the show. As I was writing How to Rock Braces and Glasses, I had so much fun developing Kacey and Zander’s musical tastes, so I’m beyond excited to see how the Nick show brings those musical tastes and talents to the screen. Below, check out a video of Cymphonique and the How to Rock cast singing “Only You Can Be You”.
You probably won’t be surprised to know that music was an important part of my process as I wrote HOW TO ROCK BRACES AND GLASSES. While I developed Kacey and Zander’s musical tastes, I found some great new (and old) tunes, and have compiled some of my favorites in a playlist on mixpod.com. Some of the songs on this playlist are mentioned in the book; some are songs that were inspiring to me as I wrote certain scenes. I hope you love them all. Listen to Kacey Simon’s soundtrack below by clicking on the iPod.
