Songs aren't necessarily in order according to chapter, these are just what I was listening to while writing Bad Touch. I listened to these particular songs because they fit the mood of a scene or a character or situation so well, they really helped me figure out where I wanted to go. Some songs I listened to specifically when writing certain parts – and sometimes there was more than one song per scene (which is why I'm not pairing them up to specific chapters).

Basically if Bad Touch was a movie these are the songs that would have been used :). I hope some of them are familiar to you, and if not I'm sure there are samples somewhere on the net if you'd like to hear them...
