Music and Books

Do you ever hear a song and think of a book you’re reading or have read?  Monday through Thursday I have to drive to Oakland University and back for my Masters class, so I’ve been listening to the radio quite a bit.  I’ve heard a couple songs that make me think of one book inparticular, but I’ve also heard some songs that sound like they belong with a book (even if I can’t think of which one). 

For example, every time I hear “Savior” by Rise Against I think of Beautiful Creatures.  That song is just about perfect for Ethan and Lena.  Then today I heard “She Will Be Loved” by Maroon 5, and that song too made me think of Beautiful Creatures.  Why do I keep thinking of that novel?!  Maybe I need to make a book trailer for it… Hmmm… 

I heard Paramore’s song “The Only Exception” last night, and I don’t know which book that song fits with, but it definitely belongs with one.  I have XM radio in my car, and I was bored with the other stations, so I put on station 9 which is all 90s music.  “Name” by the Goo Goo Dolls (love them!!) came on; this song too belongs with a novel.  Maybe I’m just feeling incredibly sappy since Keith’s gone for a week :( 

Do any of you have songs that you connect with books?  Have any of you made any, or thought about trying to make, book trailers this summer?

    Killing Loneliness and Heartkiller by H.I.M, i could see being in Twilight.
    Paramore and Rise Against are basically awesome.

    Yep, basically :) I haven’t heard those songs by H.I.M; I’ll have to look them up.
