Oh, and sorry. Couple of swears ahead...
Okay, songs never remind me of book titles, so I've done this a little differently, borrowing somewhat from http://eclectcentric.blogspot.com/2009/08/weekly-geeks-book-theme-song.html
However, what I did was this: I put my iTunes on shuffle, and stopped when a song made me think of a book. I'm aiming for 10. Let's see.
1) I Am the Highway by Audioslave (links only, sorry; I have no idea how to put YouTube videos on here):
Which made me think of American Gods, by Neil Gaiman. They're both ... road-trippy in a way.
2) Why Does Love do This To Me? by The Exponents, which was, like, my soundtrack when I was at university (or jam? What do the kids say these days? I'm going to stick with soundtrack):
Hmmm ... not one specific book. Let me direct you to this post, though:
3) The Show Must Go On by Queen:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRE0slFf4Zg&feature=related made me think of Slash's autobiography. Rock n Roll, right?
4) Bar-Ba-Sol by David Cook:
Two books tied for this song: Soldier in the Mist by Gene Wolfe, because both the book and the song are epic, and Breaking Dawn because IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN EPIC AND WASN'T
6) I Want to Come Over by Melissa Etheridge
Made me think of The Passion, by Jeanette Winterson. And no, I haven't started on any of my Gilbert! books yet. Um. Moving on.
7) Whatever by The Butthole Surfers (there's Bad Language, but it's one of my favourite songs)
Smoke and Mirrors by Neil Freaking Gaiman. They're both weirdly .... dreamlike
8) You Belong to Me by Tori Amos. From the Mona Lisa soundtrack:
Murder on the Nile by Agatha Christie. Cos :)
9) Set it Off by Audioslave (second appearnce, I know):
The Stand by Stephen King. Because the line "Set this fucker off" fits the book. Heh.
10) Ring of Fire by Adam Lambert (What? Yes, I'm still a fangirl. Shut up.):
The Heretic Queen by Michelle Moran. Um. Yeah. It's late here.
But yay, look! Ten!
Happy Weekly Geeks everyone :)
