Songs for Books

Post by Scarlett Lacarnum » Wed May 03, 2017 4:03 am

I've seen this topic elsewhere and found it intriguing so I wanted to share and see what connections came up here.

A lot of songs are stories in themselves. Are there any songs (or albums) that remind you of a book or series?

For instance, every time I hear "Gasoline" by Halsey I think of Cinder, the novel and the character.

I can't really define why, but whenever I hear Fall For You by Secondhand Serenade I always think of the Twilight Saga. Maybe it's the tone of the song, but that's always the first thing I think of when I hear it.

I also find myself thinking about the Hunger Games when I hear Buzzcut Season by Lorde, but it's a little less common.

So, the song that comes to mind for me is "The Girl is on Fire" by Alicia Keys which would be a great theme song for Katniss Everdeen though it could apply to so many strong female characters.
