Music and Literature


I had a hard time thinking on what I wanted to post today. I originally thought I would talk about being single and finding the right guy. But, honestly, I’m sick of talking about it. Right now, I think that it’s an issue that I need to keep to myself. Instead of being so vocal about it, I need to pray and figure out what I need for me. No one ask about it okay? Great. It’ll come up when it comes up.

Instead let’s talk about music and literature.

Isn’t it weird how you relate some songs with a certain book? I hope that I’m not the only one who does this. For instance Jo Dee Messina’s “Hold Me Now” goes in had with the fist of “In Grandma’s Attic” books written by Arlene Richardson. First time I read that combination, it was probably the Christmas of my sixth grade year. I just got a c.d. player and that c.d. It was pretty big stuff back then when it was still (just barely) the ’90’s.

Both music and literature are strong influences in my life. It’s like they speak to me. It’s not that it’s weird but for someone who doesn’t understand, it IS weird. Usually when I’m reading, I have music in the background. Usually. Now that I’m a little older, I can’t concentrate on both as much. Now I feel like that’s weird because I’m not that old.

Anyway, music and literature….more examples.

The Books of Fell M.E. Kerr and “I’m a Believer” the one on Shrek. AAAAANNNND I’m going one step further and the game was the original Sims. All things I got for Christmas my 8th grade year. Weird combination to associate together but still, they go together in my head.

A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks and “10000 Angels” By Mindy McCready. Don’t know why.

Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffeneger and “Stuck on You” by Sugarland. I was ready the book when the song was playing a lot on the radio.

Wolf Tower by Tanith Lee and “Over and Over” by Mindy McCready. This book and A Walk to Remember were when I was going through a Mindy McCready phase

Watership Down by Richard Adams and “I Can’t Get Over You” by the Temptations. I haven’t finished the book yet but I read it quick one Christmas vacation when I was going through a Temptations phase.

That’s all I have for now. I’m too tired to figure anything else out. I am surprised that I haven’t figured out anything for the Outlander series. I’ll get there.
