Books and Music

So I have been wondering.. Do you have books that remind you of songs or songs that remind you of a certain book?

While I was reading The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, I listened to Britney Spears - Hold it against me so much, that every time I hear that song now, I think of The Hunger Games. I just see Katniss in the arena with her bow and arrows and the scene with Peeta in the cave. I think it's fitting, even though at first I couldn't see it. While I was reading Sing me to Sleep by Angela Morrison, I listened a lot to Mumford & Sons - The Cave, which makes me think of the sad story in the book now. Not nearly as much as I relate Britney to THG, though, but still.

The other way around I don't have many combo's... When I think of it, I can't even name one.

Let me know in the comments if you have book & song combo's :)


  1. I listened to a Pink CD when I was reading Wintersmith by Terry Pratchett and now whenever I play the CD I always want to read the book :-)

  2. The book Hold Me Closer, Necromancer has a lot of music related tie ins. One of the not-so-popular bands mentioned in the book is The Get Up Kids. Although I didn't listen to music while reading the book, this band reference and other band/song references made me play back music in my head as I was reading. :-)

  3. The song Ocean and Atlantic reminds me of the book Paper Towns by John Green. The lyrics seem to match the story almost perfectly. ♥
