Paladin Playlist 17
Occasionally you need a song for a good fight. Not just a brawl, but something with guns going. Shots ring out. Your MC ducks behind cover to discover they have only two shots left. Gritting their teeth, they rise from behind that totaled vehicle, aim, and squeeze the trigger.
Click Click Boom by Saliva is perfect for these situations. When you have fist fight, a kung fu battle royale, you're going to have nonstop energy and blows hitting until the end of the scene. But a good gunfight has peaks and troughs. The tension is always high, but not because your character is getting kicked in the face. It's because someone has a bead on them and if they move wrong, BOOM! It's ducking behind cover, picking your moment, then diving out to squeeze off that one in a million shot that takes down the big bad.
Let this song course through your veins while you write your shoot out. Let the tamer moments build the suspense, inching toward the inevitable moment your protagonist has to either surrender or stand and fight back.
Enjoy Saliva's Click Click Boom.
