Soundtrack for Doin’ It: Taming of the Suit…

The challenge of publishing for the Kindle format is that readers are only exposed to one dimension of the story. For the Jedemi Chronicles (Launch Trilogy and Series), music plays a huge role. We are about to publish the third book of that trilogy: Doin’ It: Taming of the Suit.

The following are songs in the order they appear in the story (along with some context). Enjoy!


Glenn Miller’s HERE WE GO AGAIN


The JUKEBOX is playing Mr. Pitiful from THE COMMITMENTS soundtrack.


> Also from the Commitments soundtrack. Presently, it is playing TREAT HER RIGHT. She is bouncing along, especially to the “Hey, Hey” part, as she prepares her dinner.


> Her stereo has now started playing EMF’s UNBELIEVABLE.

From Vimeo and YouTube…

> music comes on (RHYTHM IS THE DANCER). Rhythm is a Dancer – Snap!


> the audio kicks in and RHYTHM OF THE NIGHT starts to play. LYRICS: To the beat of the rhythm of the night, dance until the morning light.


> The opening pledge of RHYTHM NATION starts with the screen blank.

We are a nation with no geographic boundaries, bound together through our beliefs.
We are like-minded individuals, sharing a common vision, pushing towards a world rid of color lines.

With music by our side
To break the color lines
Let’s work together
To improve our way of life

Join voices in protest
To social injustice
A generation full of courage
Come forth with me…


> …tight shot of the Rhythm Nation dance routine with a slow pullback to a view from right behind Katie.


> Annie Lennox’s “Sisters are doin’ it” begins to play.


> The shot now is in black & white. It looks a lot like the set of the “Miss You Much” video (chair dance).


> This time, Katie is leading the chair dance to another Janet Jackson song, “Control.”


> To the sound of Copland’s Appalachian Spring (part 2 of 7), we see Katie burst into her house, looks at the clock, starts the coffee and races off into the bathroom.


> Katie is zooming into the parking lot. The sounds of Sisters are doin’ it for Themselves can be heard coming from her Alfa radio.

> Closing Credits: The chorus version (Glow) of Sisters are Doin’ It” plays. It is followed by a Karaoke version.
