I love Train's "50 Ways to Say Goodbye." It's great for mystery writers. It's full of lots of ideas for bumping off characters.

So here's a playlist of other songs with murderous lyrics if you need inspiration for writing your next mystery:

  • Dixie Chicks - "Goodbye, Earl"
  • Bob Marley - "I Shot the Sheriff"
  • Queen - "Bohemian Rhapsody"
  • Foster the People - "Pumped up Kicks"
  • R. Dean Taylor - "Indiana Wants Me"
  • Johnny Cash - "The Long, Black Veil"
