Feature and Follow Friday #10

Feature and Follow is a weekly blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read!

Q:  Is there a song that reminds you of a book? Or vice versa? What is the song & the book?

I'm sure there is! It's just that I can't really think of anything at the moment. Instead, I'm going to talk about a song that I practically discovered because of the book and will always associate with the book! It's Asleep by The Smiths which... well, I think you would've got it by now... practically feels like the heart and soul of The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. 

The protagonist Charlie discovers the song in the mix-tape his sister's boyfriend made for his sister. I downloaded it the minute Charlie described the way he felt about the song and I listened to it on repeat while reading the rest of the book. While watching the movie, I nearly squealed when the song was played! The movie wouldn't have been the same without Asleep by The Smiths in the soundtrack.

Also, Expectations by Belle and Sebastian (oh, I fell in love with this song the minute I listened to it) is a song I'm listening to on loop at the moment and I would love to think of a book it goes with! I cannot think of any good matches though. I thought Confessions of an Angry Girl by Louise Rozett... in terms of general feel... but probably not! 


But I'm going to feature it anyway ;)

Which song reminds you of which book?

While I'm on GFC, Linky and can be followed by email, I'd prefer it if you could follow me on Facebook (Link to my page) since my Page is brand new ;)

  6. Oooh good song, I read the book and saw the film and it does fit. I love their 'anthem' song though - 'We Can Be Heroes' (the one they listen to driving through the tunnel)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. :D

  10. I can't think of any songs that remind me of a book. I don’t connect music to books, and I usually read in quiet.

  11. Perks is such a great book, and I loved that they did so well with the music in the film. I need to buy that soundtrack still!

    Songs are always making me think of books these days. I like to add them to my book reviews when I can. :)

  16. I just read Sins & Needles on a plane going home and was listening to my music on headphones as well. Chasing Pirates by Norah Jones (I haven't heard much else of her)is an excellent song and now I'm reminded up the story every time I hear the song. Love it! :)
