About a year ago I made a post about this, so this is a theme to which I have given some thought. When making this top I pondered on using the examples used before or not (I also pondered on whether to do it at all, but that was a matter of having the time), but in the end I decided to include them - I just couldn't find many more examples.
So here it, the soundtrack list:
The obviousSoundtracks of movies based on the books - self explanatory
North and South
*Extra: gratuitous scenes of Richard Armitage and Edinburgh*
Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind
I wasn't going to put this song (medley?) but it is so good that I have to. But really, I mostly imagine the part at minute 5:30 till 6:30 while reading the mangas.
Everything is Illuminated
Conditioned ResponseI was listening to this while reading
It has very little to do with the story, but the all feeling of the song reminds me so much of Tehanu.
They made me think it!The connection is suggested by the author or the artist
In this case, the authors. Queen plays a major role on this book, or at least in Crowley's Bentley. So, yeah, Queen is always on my mind when I so much as look at this book.
Here, the artist is to blame, basing an entire album on the book.
It's all in the name (or the words!)
The Trees: A Collection
I was discovering Korpiklaani, and With Trees was (and still is) one my favourite songs. I immediately had higher expectations of this book because I just associated it with the song.
Daughter of the Forest
The day our house collapsedYeah, I pretty much think of Sorcha at the beginning of this song.
I went down stream.
I followed the swans
Like I follow my dreams.
oh! I was living on borrowed time in a
borrowed house for a borrowed crime.
Book of Imaginary Beings
This could also be in the They made me think it category, since IAMX/Sneaker Pimps/Chris Corner [choose the right one] used the book as inspiration. But I didn't know it when I picked the book up, so I associated them because of the similar name.
Later, much LaterWhite Cat
Some time after I read White Cat, I started to listen to She Wants Revenge again, and it dawned on me how much their songs fit this book, especially Tear You Apart. Maybe not really in theme, but the whole feel of it just reminds me of this book
