I’m VERY influenced by music, and I can’t write without my iPod blaring. As it happens, I have quite a large selection of songs with sci-fi lyrics. But this one in particular just came on while I was working on writing book 4 and I thought to share it.
If you listen closely to the words, it’s about the ancient Sumerian gods – the Annunaki (a brilliant word I’ve just taught my phone) – visiting Earth and genetically engineering humans. In the final verse, it says they’re returning to our planet – and apparently we all need to dance in order to pay them tribute. Best alien invasion story ever!
