Soundtrack Saturday is a weekly meme that was created by Erin at The Hardcover Lover. The premise is that you create a playlist of songs that suits a novel you’ve recently read. As a big fan of both music and books, this is a great idea. I find music is an amazing mood setter, capturing the ambiance of a scene perfectly, whether it be in a book or a film, and this meme is a great way of opening people up to new music.
This week I’ve made a playlist for The Fire Sermon, which I reviewed here. It’s quite a bleak and harrowing book, but it certainly has an element of hope to it. I think the songs here really capture the mood.
If you don’t have Spotify or the link simply isn’t working (probably the latter, of course it’ll go wrong), then here’s a full tracklist so you can search the songs yourselves.
- Every Other Freckle by Alt-J
- Dark by Siv Jakobsen
- Lemonworld by The National
- Home by Daughter
- Hollow Talk by The Choir of Young Believers
- Lifeforms by Daughter
- Milk and Black Spiders by Foals
- Moon and Moon by Bat For Lashes
- Biko by Bloc Party
- Crossfire by Brandon Flowers
A lot of these artists are some of my favourites to write to, mostly The National, Daughter and Foals, so if you haven’t checked them out and want some moody music in your life, then I suggest you give them a listen.
If you’ve made a Soundtrack Saturday, link me in the comments, I’d love to hear some new music. Thanks to Erin at The Hardcover Lover for this awesome meme. Happy listening!
