Sometimes it happens that a certain song and a book or a scene from the book I'm reading sort of... click. It's like they were made for each other. At least for me. And so I will almost always think of that particular book when hearing that song. I thought I'd share my book soundtracks with you.
Keep in mind that I have a very... weird taste in music. You'll find mostly rock music, country or the 80s-early 90s music in these lists. I might use some "contemporary" songs from now and then, but don't bet on it being something other than those particular genres. Also, not always the songs will be in English. If I have a link to a translation for the lyrics, I'll post it. If you like a song I'm using, that's fine. If not, that's fine too, just don't say I didn't warn you.
The songs aren't always on a book's playlist for their lyrics. Sometimes they're there for an instrument or for a feeling I get when hearing them. Also, I won't always mention what scene I used them for. If it's not a spoiler, I'll share the scene, if it is a spoiler, I'll let you guess.
Anyway, I hope you like my playlists :)
This week's book soundtrack is for Frostbite by Richelle Mead (read my review here)
- Adele - One and Only - This song reminded me of Rose and Dimitri. But especially Rose. Can't say more because that will be spoiler-ish for those of you who haven't read the book.
- The Beatles - Yesterday - I can't say why I put this song on the list, because that would be a major spoiler. But I feel that it's perfect for a specific scene in the book.
- The Buggles - Video Killed The Radio Star - If you've read the book, you know why this song ended up here. Though it wouldn't be my favorite choice for that scene, I can't think of a better one. That and I really like the song.
- Roxette - How Do You Do
- Big Mama Thorton - Hound Dog - This is for Adrian. I just couldn't help it. I see this song as his ultimate theme song, at least for Adrian as we know him in Vampire Academy. We'll see if I change my mind after I read the Bloodlines series (judging only by the first two books, I'd be tempted to change the song. Not yet though, I'm still waiting to see what he has planned next :D )
