This is a meme created by me (A Cup of Coffee and a Book) and everyone is invited to participate. I’ll be posting it every Saturday though you can choose your day. Feel free to share it on your blog. Don’t forget to link me back.
- Choose a song that you think fits perfectly well with any book/character/couple/villain/scene/chapter or whatever you wish to share from the book (it can be your currently reading book or a book already read);
- You can choose more than one song to one book;
- Share it on your blog and try to explain why you think the song fits the story plot of your book (you don’t have to explain if you don’t want to);
Band/Artist: Within Temptation
Song: The Swan Song
Book: Daughter of the Forest (Sevenwaters #1) – Juliet Marilier
My Favourite Band!!!
Yes, so this week I had a really hard time choosing a song for this post. Today I’m repeating Adele’s new song for 007 in my mind like there’s no tomorrow so I couldn’t really focus on this post properly. So, I’ve decided to check my old MBS list I have (it’s a piece of paper completely written with not only music for this post but other so not important stuff) and the first song that struck me was this one.
Within Temptation is my favourite band… I bloody love them. And since I saw them live last year on bday (BEST BIRTHDAY EVER), and since it’s a week till the 12th October, I’ve decided that for these two weeks, MBS would be dedicated to them.
So, we will start with one of my favourite songs called The Swan Song and I’ve chosen that as part of Daughter of the Forest by the Master book soundtrack. The reason is pretty obvious, I think; it’s a retelling of The Seven Swans and the song is called The Swan Song so, yah, pretty obvious. But there’s a small part in this song that reminds me of Finbar for some strange reason:
“Winter as come for me, can’t carry on.
The chains to my life are strong, but soon they’ll be gone.
I’ll spread my wings one more time.”
Yah, don’t ask why I always picture Finbar when I hear that bit but I do. I just see him looking sad but forcing a smile to Sorcha with his wing instead of an arm.
Okay, I have to stop or else I’ll cry and start reading the book again.
So, for this week it’s The Swan Song by none other than the amazing Within Temptation. Next week, check out for another song from this awesome band 😀
