I promise that this is my last post of the night. I’m sure you’re sick of seeing my name popping up. I just had to catch up on those book reviews that I have neglected for a couple of weeks. I came really close to not posting this one as well, but it is the very first day of my new segment!
Each Saturday, I will post a soundtrack that I created for a particular book. Movies have them, so why can’t novels have them as well? Creating a soundtrack is a bit more difficult than it sounds. It takes time and planning, but it is so much fun! I get to combine my two favorite pastimes: music and books! 🙂 I decided to base my soundtrack off of my latest read: You by Caroline Kepnes which as you have seen from my earlier review is about a stalker obsessed with a girl he barely met.
Let’s get started, shall we?!
1. I Will Possess Your Heart by Death Cab for Cutie
“You reject my advances and desperate pleas,
I won’t let you let me down so easily”
2. Sunglasses at Night by Corey Hart
“I wear my sunglasses at night so I can,
so I can keep track of the visions before my eyes”
3. Living Room by Tegan and Sara
“My windows look into your bathroom
where I spend the evening watching you
get yourself clean”
4. Every Breath You Take by The Police
“Oh can’t you see you belong to me
How my poor heart aches with every step you take
Every move you make, every vow you break
Every smile you fake, every claim you stake
I’ll be watching you”
5. Creep by Radiohead
“You’re so f**king special.
But I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don’t belong here.
I don’t care if it hurts.
I want to have control…
She’s running out again”
6. Shiver by Coldplay
“So I looked in your direction,
But you paid me no attention, do you.
I know you don’t listen to me.
’cause you say you see straight me, don’t you.
On and on from the moment I wake,
To the moment I sleep,
I’ll be there by your side,
Just you try and stop me,
I’ll be waiting in line,
Just to see if you care”
7. Jenny was a Friend of Mine by The Killers
“She couldn’t scream while I held her close,
I swore I’d never let her go.
Tell me what you want to know.
There ain’t no motive for this crime
Jenny was a friend of mine”
8. Closer by Kings of Leon
“Showing no mercy, I’d do it again.
Open up your eyes.
You keep on crying,
baby, I’ll bleed you dry”
9. Vermilion by Slipknot
“I get nervous, perverse,
when I see her it’s worse.
But the stress is astounding.
It’s now or never.
She’s coming home.
10. Blue by A Perfect Circle
“Call an optimist.
She’s turning blue.
Such a lovely color for you…
While I just sit and stare at you”
Now how is that for a bunch of stalker anthems? Let me know what you think of my soundtrack and if you have any songs that I might have left out. 🙂
