While reading The Time Travellers Wife I often found myself thinking of the song Mad World by Gary Jules. I first heard this when watching my all-time favourite movie Donnie Darko (also time travel related)
Just recently I discovered John Green, Looking For Alaska really blew me away. Which prompted me to listen to The Verve Pipe’s Freshman over and over again (much to the hubs dismay, he thought that infatuation of mine was over)
The Cranberries – I think I could connect one of their songs to nearly every important event in my life. But very rarely do their songs come to mind while reading. During The Book Thief however I kept hearing lines from Zombie.
So what about you? Are there any particular books you’ve read that bring a certain song to mind? Have you ever found yourself remembering a book or character when a song plays? This is something I know I will be paying more attention to in the future.
