    Rachel and Trent
    1. The heart won’t lie- by Reba McEntire and Vince Gill
    2. Head over feet- by Alanis Morissette
    3. You Shouldnt Kiss Me Like This- by Toby Keith

  2. Lacey

    “Heads Will Roll” by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs for the Everafter or Al/Newt. “Everybody’s Watching Me (Uh Oh)” by The Neighbourhood for Rachel. “Now” by Paramore for Rachel. “Lost Kitten” by Metric for Ivy.

  3. How has no one suggested Simon&Garfunkel’s “Sound of Silence” for Rachel’s mood after Listen? I mean, seriously?

  4. I didn’t see it on the list at the top, but I didn’t read all 320 comments! so I don’t know if it was already suggested but I think Eric Clapton’s “After Midnight” would be perfect when Rachel is going out hunting or on a case.

  5. Lily Laces

    Deftones “You’ve Seen The Butcher”
    Puscifer “Rev 22:20”

  6. GenaK

    Shake It Out by Florence and the Machine. I hadn’t ever linked a song to a literary character before I heard this and thought of Rachel.

  7. Sandra

    Miley Cyrus “Wrecking Ball” kind of fits into her.. ‘relationship'(?) with Trent in my opinion

  8. Keegan

    Not sure who this could go for, but it works perfectly for a lot of the story.
    The Wrong Side by Abney Park

  9. Chantelle de Beer

    Maybe Queen’s Another on bites the dust. A bit old fashioned, but seems to fit her whole life between lovers and baddies, her own personal theme song almost.

  10. Keegan

    For Rachael and nick
    Not in Love by Crystal Castles
    Don’t stand so close to me by the police

  11. lavinia68

    last of my kind- Alice in Chains

  12. Kim (Yes it is my name too)

    Bif Naked – I Love Myself Today ( with Nick)

  13. SLynn

    The Dangerous Type-The Cars
    Draconian countdown-Rasputina
    Fallen Icons-Delerium
    When I picture her, I think she would look like Simone Simmons from Epica

  14. I think that over all “I’m no heroe by black veil brides fits rach. I mean shes really just wantng to live her life and everyone keeps needing her to save them/help them or both!

  15. Anima

    Rachel and Trent
    Stefanie Heinzmann: „My man is a mean man” =)
    look it up at youtube

  16. Karen

    Rachel and Trent The Police Wrapped Around Your Finger

  17. Syd :3

    Blinding by Florence And The Machine! 😀
    A lot of Florence reminds me of this series, especially the album Lungs Ceremonials is a good Flo album for it, too

  18. Chris Clancy

    The Noose – A Perfect Circle (Cause she works hard to help everyone)

  19. ‘Somebody That I Used to Know’ by Gotye makes me think of Rachel after Nick pulls his vanishing act.

  20. yvonne

    Adele’s Rolling in the Deep for Nick after BMS and No Doubts Its My Life for all the love interests that think they can tell her what to do.

  21. Sonya

    I can’t believe no one has thought of this classic for Rachel and Trent. At first he was hiding the way he felt towards her, but it’s starting to come out.

    “I Can’t Help Falling In Love With You” by Elvis.

  22. Jessica

    I realize their relationship is long past, but the song Potions by Puscifer fits Rachel after losing Kisten. You should definitely give it a listen.

  23. Kat Willow

    With Ivy, I very much feel “Save You” by Emilie Autumn. And the song could be from and to either of them.

  24. Kat Willow

    “Walk of Shame” by P!nk. Not just for her relationship chaos but just for all the general stupid stuff she does. But it’s such a spunky sound I feel it fits her well. Also, P!nk’s “Try” and Nickelback’s “Gotta Be Somebody”. She’s looking, she’s trying, and I admire that she doesn’t have the perfect romance from book one that lasts through them all because that’s not life. At least, that’s not my life.

  25. Sandz

    Five Finger Death-Punch – Walk Away

    not sure why I exactly think it fits, but hearing it Rachel popped on my mind.. kinda thought of her walking away boyfriends

  26. Leigh

    The Killers- A White Demon Love Song
    For Rachel possibly others

  27. jenna

    i think The Levellers “Voices on the Wind” could describe Rachel in the ever after. And Pages by 3 Doors Down makes me think of her and Trents relationship.

  28. Ashleigh

    “Gunboat” by Vixtrola. song was used in the soundtrack for the movie “Darkness Falls.” I think it fits Rachel and or Ivy very well.

  29. Douglas

    Within Temptation ” Fire and Ice” I think goes really well with Rachel after Kisten is taken from her forever

  30. Brandy

    “we are young” by Fun. I see this as Trents song to Rachel as they save the world side by side. Completely wreaking havock, Freaky, hair floating power, explosions, fire and in the aftermath they fall into each others arms.

  31. Michelle B.

    I’m not sure if anyone else thought of these but I feel may work for Rachel: “Higher” by Creed (Everafter); “Clumsy” by Fergie (For her relationships); “I Stand Alone” by Godsmack (for some of her fights where she’s alone); “Somewhere I Belong” by Linkin Park (for when she thinks of the church/home); “Shiver” by Jamie O’Neal (Time with Pierce)

  32. Fiona Apple Shadowboxer (for damn near any situation lol)

  33. Alyssa Danielle

    The song Powerless from Linkin Park’s new album reminds me of Rachel and Pierce and how he had tried to hide who he had been and his total disregard for anyone’s safety other than Rachels’ while using black magic. As long as it fulfilled his purpose, he didn’t worry about who got hurt in the process.

  34. Gwen

    The perfect song for Rachel’s playlist “Careful What You Wish For” by Texas.

  35. Within Temptations: A Shot in Dark. It makes me thinks about what is going about in Rachel’s mind as crap hits the fan.

  36. katie

    rhianna: cold case love (kristen)

  37. Hannah

    “Jar of Hears” by Christina Perri. I find that this fits with her relationships with all the guys and possibly even Ivy. It has a sad feel to it, but it also says forget you to some of the guys.

  38. stephanie (shadow)

    riot by three days grace

  39. “Panic Switch” by the Silverson Pickups really makes me think of Rachel, especially in this last book

  40. gabbyg

    under the water by the pretty reckless

  41. Robin Shepherd

    L7’s Shitlist would be good for Rachel or Ivy.

  42. Val

    Hurricane by 30 Seconds to Mars.

  43. Jenn S

    “Again” by Flyleaf. Think of Ivy’s repeated attempts to “seduce” Rachel. Edgy and dark, like their complicated relationship.

  44. bluedrovinashooter

    “Anywhere” by Evanescence seems to fit Rachel and Al’s relationship, to me. :>

  45. Jen Beau

    The Hush by Texas is a great theme song for Rachel (with Trent) at the moment!

    • Jen Beau

      Hmmm… and, come to think of it, Unfinished Symphony by Massive Attack… with how much Rachel is reflecting lately on that kiss with Trent!

  46. Stacey

    Ok so just heard this song and I just envision it being a Trent/Rachel song 😀 Glory Box by Portishead. First time song? -looks hopeful-

  47. Ruth

    I don’t know if anyone has suggested this yet, if not I’m surprised. I think 311’s Amber is perfect for Rachel. Both when she is lamenting the smut covering the gold o her aura, and also when Rachel seduces Ivy into feeding from her, and their auras ping. The song makes me think of what Ivy would whisper to Rachel in the middle of sharing blood to reassure Rachel about her Aura.

  48. Jenny

    Emily Autumn – Opheliac, Liar and I want my innocence back….

  49. Elli

    What about “What if” by Emilie Autumn
    I think it would be cool for Rachel and Trent. 😉

    And what if I’m a snowstorm burning
    What if I’m a world unturning
    What if I’m an ocean, far too shallow, much too deep
    What if I’m the kindest demon
    Something you may not believe in
    What if I’m a siren singing gentlemen to sleep

  50. Amanda_K

    Epica – Storm The Sorrow
    I think that this song portrays Rachel quite well. It must be how she feels after events in Pale Demon and those released chapters of Perfect Blood.

  51. clay

    “Diddy – Dirty Money performing Coming Home” seams to fit the entire series in general. Love the books

  52. clay

    For Rachel, and I know these might be a little off the normal beaten path. Jimmy Buffet has a few I think work well for Rachel and her life.

    “One Particular Harbor” a song about coming home to a safe port (Newt telling Rachel to think of Ivy and the love they share being a safe place to get home from the everafter).

    “Love and Luck” is about dealing and overcoming obstacles with simply that some love from your friends and a bit of luck.

    Lastly “Changing Channels” is all about a girl growing up and moving on with her life.

  53. Glynnis

    I have two that come to mind for Rachel, though they are diametrically opposed: “Otherside” by Red Hot Chili Peppers, and “My Confession” by Otep.

  54. Donovan

    Just re-read book 3, and saw that Rachel became “Blood Sugared” in Piscary’s Vamp club, and remembered that Pendulum did a song called “Blood Sugar” thought this might fight with the club scene, along with Rachel at that time.

  55. Clairrisa

    Sara Evans – A Little Bit Stronger

  56. Wendy

    Got another one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F21JyRKOxKo
    From fury in the slaugterhouse, time to wonder…….Was one of my favorite songs growing up.
    It is an Germand band that broke up in 2008……But this song…..Goosebumps

  57. Wendy

    The perfect sound for Rachel! Omg! Within temptation, Faster! A dutch band that really gets Rachel………http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uy_UmgjXGk8&ob=av2e

    What do you think?

  58. Wendy

    I think the song from Within Temptation, what have you done now is for Rachel and Trent or Rachel and Pierce…..Mayby both……Just listen…..http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&feature=endscreen&v=N8ywUxqfesg

  59. Eric McEwan

    What about “Shot in the Dark” or “A Demons Fate” by Within Temptation – seem to have Rachel all over them

  60. Janine Diaz

    for those two kisses that Ivy gave to our little favorite witch. . .
    i kissed a girl by KATY PERRY

    i listened to the lyrics the other day i thought it fit what was going on in Rachels head

    i kissed a girl and i liked it
    the taste of her cherry chapstick
    i kissed a girl just to try it
    hope my boyfriend don’t mind it
    it felt so wrong, it felt so right
    don’t mean i’m in love tonight
    i kissed a girl and i liked it
    i liked it

  61. Kaela

    I feel like “Spot Light” by Mute Math represents Rachel in Pale Demon.

  62. Lovise

    I think the song for Rachel is something smooth but still strong. Something like “Lighters” by Eminem and Bruno Mars, or “Boulevard Of Broken Dreams” by Green Day, even “A Dustland Fairytale” by The Killers.
    Ivy is more like the theme song of True Blood by Jace Everett. Elegant but scary. This song fits Pierce as well I think, but “Second Chance” by Shinedown is more like him.
    Jenks is more like a funny type, but he is ironic. No Disney song could ever fit him though, rather “Moves like Jagger” or “Last Of The American Girs” by Green Day. Entertaining and strange.
    If these books are going to be made movies, the director will get a hell of a job! ^^,

  63. Michaela

    Nick Cave & the bad seeds “Hiding all away”
    At the end of pale demon

  64. For everyone Rachel cares abotu and has been there for her. So it’s her to her mom, Jenks, ivy, kisten, her dad, trent (in a way), david, etc.
    Footprints in the Sand by Leona lewis

    • jeff

      you dont get rachel morgan at all. this is on your play list–kim harrison wouldnt make it part of rachel’s.

  65. Michaela

    “Hurricane” by panic at the disco with Al

  66. Dear Kim,

    This is a song that has been played on an anime called Elfen Lied. It’s an opera that tells of temptation and bless the man who resists it, or in Rachel’s case, women. Please enjoy!

    P.S ignore the previous comment, I missed up the embedding.

  67. Jessica

    Fix me by 10 years

  68. Apollinyara

    After reading “Pale Demon”, I think “F***ing perfect” by Pink seems like a great fit… maybe give it a listen.
    Wow I feel really out of it, all these comments are so old…

  69. Auburney

    I know that this may be a little different from the norm but here goes:

    Lil Wayne- “How to Love”

  70. Kyndra Quiner

    dont tread on me by metallica. this could also work for ivy, i think. 😀 but not both together.

  71. Sandra

    disturbed – asylum (with ivy) since i read chapter 18/19 in pale demon

    автобазар польша

    автобазар львов

  72. Rachel is my favorite lil witch.. so she has to have my favorite witch song -“Wytche’s Brew”- by Omnia 😀

  75. Ashley Mead

    The song “Scars” by Papa Roach would work very well for Rachel. She’s always trying to save everybody else and I feel that this songs fits her very well.

  86. Autumn

    Every time I hear “Howlin’ for You” by The Black Keys, I think of Rachel and the Howler’s baseball team. There are even baseball references in the song!

  87. Kirisch

    The main culprit of the album is (what a coincidence) A redhead.
    I think it maches rachels life trough the books and the loss of Kisten.

  88. Building a Mystery by Sarah Mclachlan. It fits perfectly. There is even a reference to this song in the second book of the Hollows series. When Rachel is showing Glenn her house and he asks if she really sleeps in a church. She says yes and says that she does not however sleep with voodoo dolls. Glenn didn’t get it.
    The first few lines of this song.
    You live in a church, where you sleep with voodoo dolls,
    And you wont give up to search, for the ghost in the halls.

  89. Misha

    I think this song is a perfect Rachel and Trent song… it makes me think of Trent singing to her *sighs* love it. lol.

    Ting Ting’s Shut Up and Let me Go! Kinda makes me remember Rache, since she’s allways trying to be left alone to live a good life, but no one ever allows her.

    Fruit Machine, from the same band, might be the kind of relationship she could have with Trent, if given the chance.

  110. So Cold by Breaking Benjamin. Reminds me mostly of Trent/Rachel at the end of pale demon. (I chose the acoustic version because I think its more heartfelt). LOL note the “Hollow” heroes pun.

  111. Marisa

    Rules Don’t Stop Me by We Are Scientists. A song I recently fell in love with and I think it Works very good for Rachel.

  112. Amanda_K

    This song reminds me of Rachel and the coven hunting her

    • Lovise

      I know it`s a long time since you posted it, but this song fits the entire story of Rachel! The perfect mach of all times ^^

    • Amanda_K

      I’m glad you like it!
      I just visited the forum to post a song I’ve just found and was really surprised to see your comment 😀

  115. wuebbi

    No idea if it’s already mentioned, but “I am what I am” by Gloria
    Gaynor comes to my mind when I think of Rachel-accepting her
    inner demon!!!

  116. yessenia

    Try to re-read page 461 from the book “For a few more Demons” and start in the last chapter while listening to the new song of Linkin Park “Waiting For the End”. I think it fits Rachel so much because she thinks everyone she loves is dead *tears* and is just waiting for HER end out of a world where here friends and love ones are no longer there.

  117. Tom

    “Everlong” by the Foo Fighters. “Gotta promise not to stop when I say when…..”

  118. Shandi

    So I was listening to my Ipod yesterday, and I was surprised how many songs reminded me of “The Hollows”. The first one that popped up was “For Your Entertainment” by Adam Lambert. I’m not sure whether this would be an Al/Rachel or Al/Ceri (from “The Bespelled), or even a “seduction” song, but it makes me think of Al/Rachel and Al/Ceri:
    “So hot out of the box/Can we pick up the pace/Turn it up/heat it up/I need to be entertained/Push the limit, are you with it?/Baby don’t be afraid/Imma hurt you real good baby/Let’s go it’s my show, baby, do what I say/Don’t trip off the glitz that I’m gonna display/I told you, Imma hold ya down until you’re amazed/Give it to ya til you’re screamin’ my name…” and so on.

    “Fighter” from Christina Aguilera made me think of Rachel/Nick:

    “After all you put me through/You’d think I’d despise you/But in the end I wanna thank you/’Cause you made me that much stronger/Well I thought I knew you/Thinking that you were true/Guess I, I couldn’t trust your bluff/Time is up, ‘cause I’ve had enough…I heard you’re going round/Playin’ the victim now/But don’t even begin feelin’ I’m the one to blame/’Cause you dug your own grave”…and on.

  119. Melissa

    Taylor Swift’s You’re Not Sorry (CSI remix). For Rachel and Nick

  120. violet

    for Rachel and KIsten;Let’s Get Lost by Beck and Bat For Lashes

    for Newt;With You In My Head by Unkle(feat.The Black Angels)

    p.s.huge fan!!!

  121. Jenny

    The song The Royal We by Silversun Pickups I think fits well for Rachel through Dead Witch Walking.

  122. Fee

    Pendulum’s song Witchcraft, really spoke to me. Especially as I read the last book. The “desperation” of the characters of each…moved me!

  123. Ron Taylor

    In regards to rachels thoughts of Trent. Gives you hell by the All american rejects fits REALLY well!!

  124. daniela

    Annie lenox- money can´t buy it / little bird

  125. jeff salas

    great song but i think of ivy more when i hear this track
    but i love your choice in music and this one is great

  126. SanniejSandra

    Adrenaline, by Lahannya. With Rachel being an adrenaline-junkie and all 🙂
    ‘Night after night, my body’s burning up with a fever
    I can’t deny I feel a hunger that will never cease
    I’m a slave to the thrill and the rush
    Adrenaline is my perfect drug
    Raging through my blood
    I can’t get enough, never enough
    I like it far too much.’

    Lahannya also made some songs that you can relate to Rachel and Nick, amongst which a song called Piece by Piece:
    ‘Piece by Piece
    Infested with deceit
    Why keep pretending
    that you can justify your crimes
    Talk to me
    Don’t you dare lie to me
    You have exploited my trust in you
    for the last time.’

  127. Jackie

    I think of Drowning Pool’s “37 Stitches” when I think of Rachel. With her dealing with vamps and demons and the other obstacles in her life I feel it is perfect for her.

  128. Priscilla

    I think that “weight of the world” and “Lose Control” are in relation to Rachel. in weight of the world its about feeling like you have too much on your shoulders to handle. And lose control i think relates to her because she can let go and throw caution to the wind and let go.

  129. I Regret by De/Vision.

  130. Sandra

    Pat Benatar -“Love is a Battlefield”- with Nick
    Pat Benatar- “Hit me with Your Best Shot”- because I love how completely badass Rachel is. She’s my feministc hero. I’m not even sure that’s a word. She’s so epic that she compels me to make up words.

  131. Sandra

    NIN- “The Hand That Feeds”- with Trent

  132. Nina

    I have a few thoughts. 1. Marilyn Manson’s “Arma-goddamn-motherfucking-geddon” Anytime I hear this song, I think of Rachel going into Piscary’s! 2. Korn’s “Kiss” I think this song goes well for Rachel and Kisten when she remember’s his death. As well as Ivy’s outlook on her and Rachel. 3. Paramore’s “Brick By Boring Brick” it reminds me of Rachel’s bluring outlook on good and bad. Any thoughts?

  133. Jason

    Oh and “Reach For the Sky” by Social Distotion

  134. Jason

    “Hocus Pocus” by Focus!

  135. Sorab

    Friend of the Devil – The grateful dead

  136. I am excited to see that Lacuna Coil is on her list. Whenever I read your books I put on Lacuna Coil, the two go well together!

  137. Sandra

    Disturbed – Guarded

    ->Fate won’t compromise
    I have sold my soul,
    And now the devil’s laughing

    reminds me of her “relationship” with Al 🙂

  138. Nathan

    Nightmare by Avenged sevenfold also fits Rachel and Al’s on going problem

  139. Newport Girl

    Kelly Clarkson Because of you (Rachel to Nick)

  140. Newport Girl

    For Rachel, Ivy and Kist I would suggest My Own Prision It fits all 3 of them then I would suggest My Sacrifice. Both songs are great for all 3 as well.
    Ivy(with Piscary) Daughtry- Over you
    Rachel-Pink-Don’t let me get me and Just like a pill
    Nick- Jet Black Stare- Ready to Roll
    Kist- Justin Timberlake- Sexyback
    Ivy and Rachel relationship- Britney Spears- Sometimes
    Rachel and Nick- Cindy Lauper- Time after Time
    Rachel(Ivy) Alice Cooper- Poison. (Very dark and very sexy)

    • AKR

      I only just read book 8 of the series, when I hear the track
      Animal by Neon Trees it brings to mind the battle between Ivy and Rachel with their emotions and the need to love each other in the way they want.

      It also brought to mind Kisten’s love for Rachel (sorry you felt he had to die) ….
      Looking forward to the next installment …

    • Sandra

      haha i’m still looking forward that he’s going to rise from death somehow.. he was one of my favourites

  141. Sandra

    Lifehouse – Simon
    but don’t know if it fits better to rachel or to her relationship with ivy.. or maybe just to ivy?
    whatever, it reminded me of your series

  142. barbara

    no way from avpm is great and it suits rachel very well

  143. Alison

    For Rachel still dealing with losing Kisten…. Nothing Can Compare by Sinead O’Connor

  144. Betti

    I’m surprised that these too haven’t hit the list yet but here they are:
    Voltaire-Vampire Club (for the Date with Kisten)
    Lady Gaga-Bad Romance (her and Ivy)
    Ryan Brightman-The Weary Kind

  145. Sandra

    Avenged Sevenfold – Demons 🙂

  146. Becky

    If i had to name one album that summed up the whole series it would 100% be Florence The Machine’s cd “Lungs”. Every song fits in some way and constantly is reminding me of Rachel.

  147. Kevin

    In The Light by Led Zeppelin makes me think of how Rachel wants to help Ivy

  148. Micheala

    Danny Gokey – I will Not Say Goodbye

    Gary Allan- Get off on the pain

  149. cookiemuncher

    gonna go far,kid by the offspring fits racheal pretty good:
    “with a thousand lies and a good disguise hit’em right between the eye,
    hit’em rightbetween the eyes
    when you walk a way nothing more to say,
    see the lightning in your eyes,
    see them running for their lives!”

  150. lynn

    roxanne the police

  151. SJD :)

    Raise it up by Florence and the Machine, it’s just a Rachel song through and through, I think :p. Especially with the words “you made a deal and now it seems you have to offer up” – her whole life seems to revolove around them, deals I mean, like getting out of the IS contract, avoiding one with Trent, and then Al. WOOP WOOP it’s pretty much three months till PD comes out 😀

  152. Jill

    Ashes and Wine – A Fine Frenzy for Rachel when Kisten died. This song was playing when I read the part and I cried the entire day after.

  153. Laura

    This list is missing Florence and the Machine, which is odd, as some songs of hers really fit various characters.
    “Dog days are over” is perfect for Rachel and Trent (the lyrics are even based around hunting on horses- really), “Howl” and “Hardest of Hearts” &”Blinding” fit Ivy very well (that lst one with Piscary, I think), “Drumming” is good for describing Rachel’s relationship to the ever after (the pull towards demon magic, that sort of thing”, “Kiss with a fist” is good for Rachel alone, but mostly Rachel and Al, “Falling” “Donkey Kosh” “Ye Olde Hope/Tear Out My Tongue” (maybe) also for Rachel. “Bird Song” for Newt
    Other random suggestions – Foo Fighters “The Pretender” Muse: “Supermassive Black Hole” “Feelin’ Good” Kasabian “Underdog” “Vlad the Impaler” for Rachel. Muse: “Hysteria” “Undisclosed Desires” Hannah Fury “Girls that Glitter Love the Dark” (maybe) for Ivy.

  154. Krista

    Haven’t heard this for years, but as I am re-reading White Witch, Black Curse and Rain by Concrete Blonde almost made me cry. Forgotten memories, aching for a love long gone..

  155. Aly

    I think Break Myself by Something Corporate is very appropriate for Rachel overall.

  156. Arachne

    I have 3 songs. The first is from Tarja Turunnen and is named Winter Storm. I find this song fitting by Rachel and Ivy.

    The second song is Elvenpath by Nightwish for Jenks.

    The third is for Ivy: Ice Queen by Within Temptation.

    I have read al 5 Books with all the emotions that I could haven and feel a connection from Me with Ivy and Rachel. They made me aware of the importans in my life of everything you have, not neccesearly material stuff, espacially emotional and spiritual things and the awarness of the Elf in my life.

    I hope there will be more Books and thank You Kim and the caracters Rachel. Ivy and Jenks for everything.

  157. Nate

    I’ve got a couple of additions for Rachel that I surprisingly didn’t find yet.

    1) “Fighter” by Christina Aguilera. This was a no-brainer. It plays at both her resilience and her evolution, as the lyrics say, as she toughens up to both worlds around her.

    2) “Say You’ll Haunt Me” by Stone Sour. At first glance it would apply to Pierce, and I think that’s fair. But personally, I think it fits better with either Ivy or Al (in a more twisted way, but it’s still there). The destitution in Corey’s vocals plays at the plea in Rachel’s existence as her relationships fall apart, except those of Ivy and Al.

    3) “Psychosocial” by Slipknot. The situations-and institutions-Rachel often finds herself in personifies the anger and aggression of this tune. Either it be on this plain of reality, or the ever-after, I can almost hear this being the theme song.

    4) “More Human Than Human” by Rob Zombie. I guess this one can also go under the the Vampiric Charms playlist, but Rachel is the one who exemplifies it the best. The moral of the song is that it does’t matter how scary or frightening I am or have become, I’m still a better person than you.

    5) “Demonoid Phenomenon” by Rob Zombie. I think the title speaks for itself; Rachel knows she’s somewhere between demon and witch and no one can tell her what. Listen to this song and you can almost hear what goes through her head whenever Al, or Nick, or Ivy, or Jenks brings up the subject.

    6) “Wanna Be Loved” by Papa Roach. Again, the title speaks for itself. It seems that no matter how hard Rachel tries she always ends up losing her boyfriends. All she wants is the respect she deserves for her natural-born skills, who she is.

    That’s all I got for now. It’s getting harder and harder to come up with stuff that hasn’t already been said-a good problem to have.

  158. How could you possibly have missed
    “Every Night I Burn” by the Cure? If anything fits your work, this song does.

  159. Mary K

    Bloc Party = Hunting for Witches
    She Wants Revenge = Out of Control

  160. Emma

    I know that CCR’s “Bad Moon Rising” is on this list but I found a remake of this song by accident and I must say wow…it reminded me of Rachel the first time I heard it. It suits the mood of the books more. Listen to “Bad Moon Rising” by Rasputina.

  161. Brady Borda

    I think “Kick In the Teeth” by Papa Roach, from Rachel to Al. And “Say You’ll Haunt Me” by Stone Sour from Rachel to Pierce… it fits literally as well as theoretically. 🙂

  162. cookiemuncher

    cover your eyes-children 18:3

  163. Nicholas Payne

    I think the Curve album Cuckoo has a few tracks on it that suit Rachel’s character particularly Superblaster

  164. cookiemuncher

    starlight-muse-all those hard truths about racheal that come out in the books
    nightmare-avenged sevenfold-her feelings about the deals she has to make with al, especially in the first 3 books, then again when she learns about her “special genetics” and what that means for her.
    save me from myself-vertical herizon-it pretty much matches racheal and her issues with guys and adrenaline.

  165. caleb

    AC/DC and Queen all you ever need

  166. trinity

    “Slow Fade” by Casting Crowns plays through my head everytime Rachel makes a choice that leaves her wondering how much of herself she can compromise and still be a “good witch”

  167. Sonya

    “Poor, poor, pitiful me” by Terri Clark comes to mind because of all the boyfriends.

  168. Danielle

    I think “Resist” by Melissa Etheridge is the perfect song for Rachel.
    Just listen to the lyrics:
    “A demon’s day in madness kissed
    I swear I never had it like this
    Forbidden yet I cannot resist”
    How cool is that?

  169. Krista

    “Gone Away” by Offspring is all I hear when I think of Rachel and Kisten.

  170. Melissa

    i think the T.H.C. (very extremely obscure and SO not the hawaiin band) OVER FIRE fits Rachel.

  171. Soleil

    a mistake by fiona apple haha i was listening to it and was like hmmm that song reminds me of rachel haha

  172. For some strange reason, I will always associate the song “Who Owns My Heart?” by Miley Cyrus with Rachel and Al. (Reading ODW with MP3 player on shuffle? Maybe not such a good idea!)

    Can’t wait for the next book 😉

  173. Angela

    I’d have to say “Very Good Advice” by Robert Smith from the Almost Alice soundtrack fits Rachel. It certainly seems that most of the time she knows things are going to end out badly and then does it anyway.

  174. Onyx

    Headstrong by Trapt fits her really well because Rachel doesn’t back down and she is always ready to take you on if you mess with her or her friends

  175. Bill

    Here’s a song for Rachel, when she’s feeling very quiet and vulnerable….

    The Dresden Dolls – The Perfect Fit

  176. Melanie

    Rihanna – Te Amo
    Rachel to Ivy

  177. Red

    Disturbed – Pain Redefined

  178. mekhayla

    Disturbed – Haunted (after being shunned)

    Thousand Foot Krutch – Fire It Up

    Owl City – The Saltwater Room (with Kisten)

    Pillar – Fireproof (mudrock version)

  180. Destiny


  181. For Al and Rachel “Red Skies Disappear,” by Sister of Mercy

  182. Jillian Jones

    Wanted Dead or Alive – Bon Jovi I love Rachel and her dependence yet independence all at the same time. This song suits her perfectly.

  183. Edward

    Stevie Nicks – The Nightmare. I’m not sure why, but I think it would fit Rachel perfectly. Or Ceri for that matter.

  184. Frostflower

    My Suggestion is

    Inkubus Sukkubus – Belladonna & Aconite

  185. Cadence

    It seems an unlikely song, but if you read the lyrics, I think it fits, especialy now.

  186. Cadence

    The Fray-How to save a life.
    with Trent.

  187. NocturnalVixen

    I have one for Rachel Kim,
    it’s called Free at last and it’s a short song from Repo the Genitic Opera.

  188. Jessica

    Running With The Devil by Alexz Johnson

  189. Alina

    The song “H” by Tool. It’s perfect for her.

  190. RayBear

    I was listening through some of my CDs while cleaning the house today, and when “That Don’t Impress Me Much” by Shania Twain came on, I immediately thought of Rachel and Trent! In fact, ever since I read the Hollows series, most of Shania’s songs make me think of Rachel. Especially “Honey, I’m Home”, “Man, I Feel Like a Woman”, “Up”, “I’m Gonna Getcha Good”, “Any man of Mine” and “Love Gets Me Every Time.” “Don’t Be Stupid” reminds me in a funny way of Rachel’s thoughts on Ivy.
    Coincidentally, Shania Twain is my favorite music artist of all time (wink).

  191. Iris

    Gary Jules ‘Falling awake’ (after Kisten)

  192. Candy

    “F**K Authority” by pennywise just simply her attitude towards the “I.S.”, the coven, Al and pretty much anyone who tries to hold authority on her with lies and manipulation.

  193. Sandra


  194. Emerahl

    “Knock down” and “Zero” by Anna Tsuchiya for Rachel, the lyrics just fit her

  195. jason

    personaly i think for the gang as of the last book

    Metallica- broken,beaten, and scared-all nightmare long-the day that never comes(ivy)

    matchbox20- mad season-bent( for jenks)- if your gone( for jenks)-unwell( for rachel)

  196. Christen

    For Rachel and Ivy: “Love you to Death” by Type O Negative

  197. Cimrichn

    It may not be the right genre, yet the song “Go Away” by Lorrie Morgan fits Rachel’s confusion about dating and relationships. I laughed the first time I heard this song!

  198. Deniz

    I think ”Hell Ain’t A Bad Place” is an appropriate song for what’s happenning between Al and Rachel

  199. ashley

    i think ‘tattoo’ by jordin sparks would be a good one for Racheal 🙂

  200. Wayne

    I think the perfect song for Rache is Pat Benatar’s Invincible.

  201. Jo

    Alicia keys-unthinkable reminds of Rachel and Pierce when they’re hiding out from Trent and his dogs in Black Magic Sanction

  202. kye

    I found one that sort of fits the whole series…with a ‘once bitten/twice shy’ feeling…and with how Rachel has to deal with people in not-so-hot situations…

    “Keep it Simple” by Cobra Starship

  203. Jen B.

    “Devil’s Got Your Boyfriend” ~ Tracy Bonham

  204. Amanda

    I think a good fit for Rachel and Pierce is a song called “bulletproof” by kerli

  205. Marayna

    Asong by Nine Inch Nails called Everyday is Exactly the Same also by Mudvayne is World so Cold

  206. Cindy

    This song fits Rachel’s current relationship with Nick Jo Dee Messina’s I’m Done.

  207. Jen

    New Divide by Linkin Park

    I think this really fits with Rachel crossing the lines into the ever-after and learning to accept herself and who she is, not just who she wants to be and hoping that others can just let her be while she continues her journey.

  208. Ajatar

    Birds of Toyko have a song called “White Witch” whenever I listen to this song it reminds me of rachel. favourite part is the chorus “kick the cat out and hang up your high heels, show me magic and spells unknown with your potions show me some good love my white witch”

  209. Alanda

    Can Somebody Help Me? by Full Blown Rose
    for Rachel /Ivy/ and Pierce and maybe Ford???

    plus Save Me by Aimee Mann for Rachel and/or Ivy

  210. Amanda

    I Walk Alone by Tarja

  211. Bruce

    Vanessa Mae – Destiny

  212. laura

    I think “awake and alive” by skillet goes really well for rachel. She never backs down and shes always “at war with the world, cuz she ain’t ever goin to sell her soul, no matter what, she cant be bought or sold” 😛

  213. kace

    I think ‘Animal i have become’ and ‘Get out alive’ by Three days grace fits with rachel’s personality and life.

  214. aja

    I think M83’s “Skin of the Night” is an excellent song to represent the seudo-sexual tension between Ivy and Rachel. I heard it as “she is hunting me,” and according to online lyrics sheets it’s actually “she is haunting me,” but the feel is similar in the context of the song.

  215. shelly

    possesion and Fumbling Towards Ecstasy by Sarah McLachlan

  216. Kelsey Rynerson

    I don’t really like Pierce, but this song pretty much describes what goes on near the end of the latest book; so I felt I had to point it out for him and Rachel. *reluctant grumble* It’s “Resistance” by Muse from their latest album. *more muttering and glaring at Pierce*

  217. J.L.

    Strange-Tokio Hotel & Kerli

  218. Joel

    I’m really surprised no one has said “Gotta Be Somebody” by Nickleback

  219. William C

    I think only execption by paramore works for Racheal with Kistin

  220. MistressMorgan1

    I have a song that would be perfect for Rachel’s and Nick’s relationship in the latest book… Its called Had Enough by Breaking Benjamin. another really good song that I think fits Rachel is Aimee Allen’s I’d Start A Revolution. And a song for Rachel and Trent Sin With A Grin by Shinedown.

  221. Lydia

    Lolita’s Medicine– THe Legion of Doom (for rachel)

  222. Dawn

    “Kiss With a Fist” by Florence The Machine. (with Trent)

  223. Holly


    Solex “Shoot, Shoot”


    Nightwish “Amaranth”

    — Looking forward to reading Black Magic Sanction… 😉

  224. Lauren

    Evanescence- Farther away
    rachel in response of kisten, ivy and everyone behind her

  225. Dawn8226

    John Mayer – In repair. I think it fits Rachel perfectly after Kisten dies and she is trying to figure out if she is ready to start something new with Marshall and than Pierce.

  226. Rihanna’s “Russian Roulette”
    I love this song, and I think it’s got Rachel written all over it. For every near death experience she has with Trent, Lee, or Al.

    As my life flashes before my eyes
    I’m wondering will I ever see another sunrise?
    So many won’t get the chance to say goodbye
    But it’s too late to think of the value of my life

    And you can see my heart beating
    Oh, you can see it through my chest
    Said I’m terrified, but I’m not leaving
    Know that I must pass this test

  227. RebiNkc

    There is a song I just heard and as soon as I heard it I thought of Rachel, Al, the Everafter, and the Ley Lines. It’s Whip the Blankets by Neko Case.

  228. Miso Thorny

    Bright Yellow Gun by Throwing Muses

  229. Without a doubt, I always thought of Florence and the machine’s “Rabbit Heart” when I think of Rachel (esp her more difficult relationships), even though it’s not exactly something I’d picture her listening to. Odd choice, I suppose, but there’s something both kick-ass and simultaneously essentially feminine about this song. And the lead singer of the group in this vid has fabulous red hair that reminds me a bit of Rachel. 🙂

    • Danielle

      I don’t think that’s an odd choice at all. I can picture Rachel listening to this. It kicks ass. Thanks for turning me onto this artist, I really love this song.

  230. April

    Eddie Money – take me home tonight. I think of Kim’s books whenever this comes on the radio!

  231. Melanie

    Nickelback: If today was your last Day

    for Rachel because she/her life is often in danger.

  232. Joe Blake

    Rachel and David “Clap for the wolfman” The Grass Roots

  233. Joe Blake

    Al to Rachel

    “Time is on my side” the Rolling Stones

  234. Kate

    Friends by Band of Skulls is a good one I think.

  235. mandik

    what i’m looking for – brendan benson


    “For some people it’s an easy choice
    But for me there’s a devil and an angel’s voice”


    “And I act like a child
    And I’m insecure
    And I’m filled with doubt
    And I’m immature
    Sometimes it creeps up on me
    And before I know it I’m lost at sea
    But no matter how far I roam
    I always find my way back home
    But I don’t know what I’ve been waiting for
    But I know that I don’t wanna wait anymore”

  236. wanderamaranth

    For Rachel and Cincy in general, I hear a lot of Asphalt Ballet’s self-titled album. None of their other albums, just that one. It’s blue-sy metal, unapologetic, kick-in-your-teeth music. Try the track “Soul Survive”.

  237. Lauren

    I always hear “Paranoiattack” by the Faint go through my head when Rachel goes out on an investigation.

    Actually, I often think of music by the Faint when reading the Hollow books, for instance, “I Disappear” for Ivy can represent the struggle Ivy goes through between her vampire instincts and blood urges and that of her still intact soul…”I disappear, I lost control, My body’s moving, On it’s own. I watch myself, Walk away, A poor spirit, took my place.”

    I have so many songs I think of but I will keep it to just one more. “Alright” by Supergrass best represents Jenk’s kids for me.

    Signing off,


  238. Jonathan in TN

    And possibly “Force Ten” by Rush. Seems to sum up Rachel’s life since leaving the IS. To me anyway.

  239. Jonathan in TN

    I was thinking that “Bouncing Off Clouds” might fit regarding Rachel’s life after Kisten’s second death.

  240. mel

    godsmack – hollow ( i always think of ivy when i hear this)

  241. mel

    stone sour – hell & consequenses
    stone sour – zzyxz_rd.

  242. Jaci

    I think a great song for Rachel is Headstrong by Trapt. Every time I hear the lryics “Headtstrong I’ll take you on, Headstrong I’ll take on anyone” I get this mental picture of Rachel in my head. I think the song captures her dive to keep going forward and her unwillingness to give up.

  243. Mimi

    I think a really fitting song for Ivy and Rachel’s relationship is Muse song Undisclosed Desires. The Lyrics are perfect for it in my opinion =)

  244. ange

    NO,NO,NO I,ve got it!(LOL) Temptation by The Tea Party actually Fire in the head as well.

  245. Reds948

    The two songs that I think would fit Rachel would be Leona Lewis’s “Bleeding Love” and “Happy”.

  246. Co

    I find “Staring At The Sun” to be fairly appropriate for Rachel. “I won’t be frustrated / By destruction in your eyes / As you’re staring at the sun.”

  247. tanya

    I LOVE THESE BOOKS!!!!! i think they are amazing!! thank you soo much!!!

  248. Sonya

    I have a few suggestions:
    (Kisten and her dad)- Mariah Carey & Boys 2 Men’s “One sweet Day” and Nick Lachay and Jessica Simpson’s ” Where you are”.
    (Kisten)- Edwin Mckain’s “I’ll be”, Alicia Keys ” No One” and Faith Hill’s “This Kiss”
    (Ivy and Jinks)- Celine Dion’s “Becouse you loved me” and Zac Attack’s Friends Forever”
    (Nick) -Aaron Tippin’s “Kiss This” and Christina Agulera’s “Fighter”
    (Herself)- Christina Agulera’s “Reflections” and Shania Twain’s “Man I feel like a woman)

  249. Madi

    Hey Kim! I am utterly obsessed with The Hollows series, i absolutely love just about everything in them besides the fact that Kisten passes. But it had to happen in order to make it continue right? Lol any way i believ a great song for Rache is “Out Of Control” by Hoobastank. Thanx.

  250. crystal

    kd lang ‘constant craving’

  251. morgan

    if i may suggest a theme song that is so suiting it is almost frightening. “Building a Mystery” by Sarah Mclaughlan

    • sister sarah

      Morgan has it right, Building a Mystery by Sarah McLaughlan is PERFECT. As a matter of fact, I’m re-reading this series, this time I am listening on audio cd. In the second book where Rachel takes Dennon to her home for the firs time he says, “You live in a church?” and Rachel replies, “Yeah, but I don’t sleep with voodoo dolls.” I almost fell out when I realized these were the lyrics to Building a Mystery! I think I missed it when I read it the first time. I need to hear it spoken to get it.

      The audio cds are incredible.

      Thanks for a wonderful series.


  252. Alanda

    Garbage : Why Do You Love Me?

    always good for her… don’t ya think?

  253. Alae

    this could go for IVY but i think rachel too… Monster by Skillet???

  254. Wow so many to choose from…first for Rachel I would say You Can’t Bring Me Down by Suicidal Tendencies…has a lot of her personality in it! LOL Next I would say Afraid Of Me by TWiZTiD but that would also pertain to Ivy as well…that and Wrong With Me by TWiZTiD

  255. Alanda

    Whispers In The Dark by Skillet, i have no idea why but every time I read these books, this song pops in my head…

  256. Pixie

    For as much as she realizes how bad she messes up AFTER then fact, “4AM” by Our Lady Peace. I would say it’s her after ever lost, ache, and broken heart, has to fit her to a T!!!

  257. Joel

    “I get knocked down” by Chumba Wumba fits nicely about what Rachel’s life entales

  258. gyspy

    Garbage- Its All Over But The Crying./Better Than Ezra-Juicy/Jackel- Dirty little Mind. Its all over but the crying is great for Rachael. Juicy and Dirty Little Mind fit Ivy perfectly. I love these books.Can’t wait for the next.

  259. Marleen M

    After the run from Makinac was done and they all retruned back home to the church….Kisten and Ivy Both had a discussion about the blood passion they each wish to share with Rachel. I think the song by, ‘”” Michael Jackson & Paul Mcartney – The Girl Is Mine “”‘….that would fit well with there fighting for Rachels Love.

  260. Marleen M

    When Rachel crys for Peter as he dies in the crash on the Makinac Bridge
    1962 very soft and beautyful instermantle music
    (Strangers On The Shore)
    Acker Bilk/Robert Mellin

  261. Marleen M

    I am thinking more of RACHELL on this one. With her fighting off Piscary,Kalamack,the undead and so on. But it cold go for all when, jinks,ray ray,Ivy and crap for brains (aka-nick) did the battle at the mall with the wheres. The splat gun/sleeping potion, jinks with his little rambo kick butt action, ivy helping to locate them, pulling them into the back of the truck bed that nick was driving. Plus that sweet cirle of protection Rachell placed around the truck to keep them save from the remaning wheres chasing them…….SO I CHOSE :__Pat Benatar_Invincible__

  262. Mendi in STL

    Potions – Puscifer

  263. Julissis

    Soo.. i was standing in the bathroom this morning, listening to the weather forecast on the radio and then this new song was played.. First thing i thought “Rachel!!” and on the second thought i was thinking of Al too.

    It’s “Lenka – trouble is a friend” : ) God, how i love this song now!

  264. Elizabeth

    Anthem of the Angels – Breaking Benjamin (after Kisten)

  265. Bellemorte69

    Marion Raven – End Of Me

  271. Alicia

    Babes in Toyland ” He’s my thing” …

  272. Stephanie

    Well I have had this song in my head for a while, And I just relised that it would be a good song for Rachel and Ivy. the song is called Breath Into me By Red.

  273. ChocolateCrumb

    Senses Fail – Bloody Romance [maybe with Ivy or Kisten]

  274. Aimee

    And maybe Bring me to life ???

  275. Aimee

    I think Taylor swift “you belong with me” , All american rejects “gives you hell” i think that would be a great Rachel song 😛

  276. Leila

    Pink – Crystal Ball

  277. Michele

    I thought that “In your eyes” Peter Gaberiel would be a great Kisten-Rachel song.

  278. ChocolateCrumb

    Oh, sorry! I mean Katy PErry. 🙂

  279. ChocolateCrumb

    Katy Parry – Thinking Of You (Kisten)

  280. Jen B.

    Rachel (with Trent) – “Ignorance” by Paramore. 😛

  281. Liz C.

    Uh, it’s from “The Crow” soundtrack, done by Jane Siberry, sorry about that.

  282. Liz C.

    The song “It Can’t Rain all the Time” fits with Kisten’s death. It’s a very moving song that deals with love ended too soon.

  283. Melissa

    4 Non Blondes had a hit with a song that I think fits Rachel. The title is “What’s going on?”

  284. Valorie

    Golden Earing- Twlight Zone

  285. shauna

    Im sorry but i have to put this in…
    on the playlist there’s ‘my humps’ by the black eyed peas, and now every time i hear that song i picture Rachel look down at her chest, then cross her arms with a grumpy huff and mumble ‘what humps’
    Anyway…. ‘I Never Liked You’- by the Rogue Traders and
    ‘Take A Bow’- by Rihanna are songs that I think fit along the lines of Rachel to Nick

  286. Lisa Hall ( Is this Real ) its just a song that I think is rachel

  287. Sue, Chicago

    I just heard a song that is perfect for Rachel after Kisten dies. It’s by Evanescence. It’s called My Immortal.

    It’s a beautiful song about loss.

  288. Jonny Lang, Lie To Me. (Nick)

  289. Sandra Treadaway

    **correction** I’m Every Woman- Whitney Houston. Jesus, I’m typing like I’m drunk.

  290. Sandra Treadaway

    I’m Every Woam- Whitney Houston…he he

  291. Maria

    Well one of the songs by my favorite German Band named *Beatsteaks* is *~ Demons Galore ~* first you think of Big Al just because of the song name but if you listened to it you also think of the relationship between Rachel and Trent so far ” This is mine it will never be yours, stay away from what i love, cause it’s the only thing i’ve got, won’t stick to those i can not trust…” God, I just love the way both of them act like kids in first grade when it comes to each other!
    or “The Pretender” by Foo Fighters! This “What if I say I’m not like the others, What if I say I’m not just another one of your plays, You’re the pretender, What if I say I will never surrender” just screams Rachels dislike for Trent (and her working for him)
    And last but not least: *~ Rootless Tree ~* by Damien Rice
    If both of them wouldn’t be so stubborn and would just come over the mess that went on between them, there would be love waiting for them … well, if Mrs Harrison thinks like I do that is =)

    • Chrisy

      High five for Beatsteaks and Foo Fighters!

    • Maria

      Hey thanks 😉 maybe you’ll try **stop the clocks** by “Donots” (also German) I think you’ll like it.. and well it fits Rachels adventure with Trent in the Ever-After…

    • Chrisy

      Cool song! I didn’t know them although I am German. Do you know ‘Von hier an blind’ by Wir sind Helden? Fits Rachel too I think. I’m always searching for good German bands. So thank you ^.-

  292. Fuel ~ “Won’t Back Down (Bring You Hell)” is a great track for Rachel I think. (it featured on the Daredevil OST)

    Brett Scallions vox are angry at times and pained at others, just like the turmoil that Rachel seems to go through, yet bearing such determination…and the title is apt on SO many levels! lol

  293. w2

    What about Saliva’s Always

  294. diannehalliwell

    But,in the end,Rachel and Trent will have a relationship? Please,sorry about my linguage,but I’am not English XDXD Trent The Best u.u <3<3<3

  295. Thursday

    Okay I have read all your Hollows and I love all your characters!
    So I was listening to this knew song called “I Will Not Bow” By Breaking Benjamin, and I have to tell you that it SCREAMED Rachel to me! The way she’ll never give up or let anyone rule her! I love it! Go Rachel!! Please Please I know you have a lot to do but please give this a listen and tell me if you agree. Hope you had fun in the Yellow and Blue State!

  296. John

    I would like to suggest the Song Unforgiven by Apocalyptica, and the song S.O.S (Anything but Love) By Apocalyptica for both Ivy and Rachel.

  297. Didi

    beautiful soundtrack *-*

  298. Chrisy

    Beatsteaks – Cut Off The Top ❤

  299. Jordan

    Cobra Starship feat. Leighton Meester “Good Girls Go Bad” for Al.

  300. Melissa

    There is a song entitled “Red-head walking” by Beat Happening that I think fits with Rachel and Ivy. It talks about a red-head in leather that you don’t want to get on the wrong side of.
