If you're lost and alone, or you're sinkin' like a stone Carry on May the past be the sound of your feet upon the ground Carry on
This was surprisingly difficult but then I remembered the song Carry On by fun. which has the same title as Carry On by Rainbow Rowell, one of my all-time favorite books. It’s also very appropriate since the titles in this trilogy are all based on song lyrics. Now I have to go and listen to more songs by fun. because I forgot they even existed.
Do you get wild when I'm alone? Do you ever get unreliable? Before you pass out drunk on the floor Shining like a Tiffany, do you ever think of me? Or do you get unreliable? Unreliable, unreliable
This is completely random; the song Unreliable by Scarlet Pleasure has nothing to do with the book it makes me think of which is Call Me By Your Name by André Aciman. It’s just that Scarlet Pleasure is my favorite band and they released this song as I was reading Call Me by Your Name so I, of course, listened to it obsessively. Literally think it was the only song I listened to for the week it took me to finish that book so now the two are just inseparable in my mind. The song is better than the book if anyone cares.
The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks, which, I must admit, I don’t remember much about but going by the title, I think it’s a safe bet that there’s music in it. I think there’s some piano-playing and a father who really wants his troubled daughter to do the piano-playing.
Let me tell it to you now You're stronger than the wind If they ever let you down The winter would set in Back then my mother showed me all My frozen heart could do
I’m thinking there are people who knew this was coming as my OTP is Vasya and Morozko from the Winternight Trilogy by Katherine Arden and Unbreakable by KEiiNO is a song that is specifically based on those books. The song itself isn’t so much about Vasya and Morozko but honestly, any mention of winter and all I can think about is Morozko so it definitely counts.
All those lonely miles that you ride Now you'll walk with no one by your side Did you ever even care With your swords and your stupid hair Now watch me laugh as I burn all the memories of you
I’m assuming it’s okay to pick a song from a TV show because I only just recently finished season 2 of The Witcher and Burn Butcher Burn (sung by Jaskier also known as Joey Batey) has been on my mind ever since. You probably need to have watched the show to truly understand the brilliance behind this song, but it’s just such intelligent song-writing and then Jaskier just sings every word with FEELINGS. I need more songs from Jaskier in the next season!
I don’t normally tag people when I haven’t been tagged myself but I’m thinking Maria @The Character Study and Naemi @A Book Owl’s Corner would have fun with this if you guys haven’t been tagged/done it already. I just adore any post that combines books and music so this was very fun to do! What did you think of my answers? Which song was your favorite if you listened to them?
