It's been a while since I did a Musical Notes post, mainly because I've been working 50+ hours a week. This not only slowed down my blogging, but my reading--meaning I didn't have many books to talk about. But now I've managed to collect several songs to go with my reading, so enjoy a few week's worth of musical notes!
The House on Tradd Street
This book takes place in Charleston, and when the characters went out to eat I kept imagining this being played by a band in the restaurant:
Was Pocahontas really Southern? I don't think so, Tim! Moving on...
This song immediately started running through my head when I picked up Faefever. Bonus reason to post this: I found this video where Bob Dylan looks like Adam Sandler!
Perchance To Dream
The lovely Pam from Bookalicio.us let me borrow this book. I think the drama of Arcade Fire goes perfectly with Beatrice's troupe of players.
Maybe it's just because I downloaded OK GO's new album this week, but I think this is a very good soundtrack to this book. It's a little too perky, admittedly, but it seems to capture the same themes... right? Hmmm.
Priceless line from this song: "Nothing ever doesn't change, but nothing changes much." Deep, man, deeeep.
