Ok, so reading another blog the other day and there was a post about books and songs that remind you of that book, and vice versa. It got me thinking about how in movies songs are so integral and you hear a song and it reminds you of the movie, usually played during the movie or at least its credits. What about books? are there songs that remind you of a book; or, is there a book that reminds you of a song? What are your thoughts? What are your favorite books or songs and is there a song that you associate with it?
This is the song that was posted about the book Songbook by Nick Hornby, which is basically a review of 31 favorite pop songs by the author. It’s great to read about the love of songs by another person, even when you are unfamiliar with the songs. The song is an old Beach Boys song about music. It’s a great tie-in. What do you think?
Add Some Music – the Beach Boys
This is the first one that came to my mind. The song is a great storytelling song about growing up and spending summers at Grandmas house. The book that it reminded me of was Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury. They both have that childhood summery goodness feeling.
Canned Goods – Greg Brown
