In Which My Nerdiness Shows Again....

Remember when you were a teenager and you'd have "a song"? That song that just totally got how you are as a couple?

Well, I'm way past teenager (although hubs and I do have a song) so now I listen to songs and think "that song is perfect for -insert character names here-". Yes, lame, I know. Keeping in mind I don't really watch TV and definitely don't watch music videos (cuts into my reading time!!), so I don't know if the videos are weirdly inappropriate for my couples.

Here's a few:

Cat and Bones (Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress Series):

Richard from Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake series (in her later books):

Charlaine Harris' Eric and Sookie (after the blood bond):

Jace from Rachel Vincent's Shifter series:

Moira Rogers' Derek and Nick (Crossroads - right before Nick goes to NY):

Megan Hart's Dan and Emme from Dirty:

And Ilona Andrews' Kate and Curran (in this song I see Kate talking and Curran imagining Kate dancing around his Bimbo Room to the music):

So anyway, that's my short list; hope you liked it!


  1. Its weird that you say that - there is this one song that i have on my iphone, its by an artist called Mika (but right now I can't for the life of me remeber the name of the song), and everytime I hear it I think that it is a perfect song for The Hitchhikers Guide To the Galaxy. Not for a particular character, just the whole book. I can't listen to the song without thinking of the book.

    I always thought that was a bit weird but im glad to know that someone else thinks that there are some songs that just seem right for fictional characters.

  2. ooh I love the Jet/Jace combination! :) Great choices!

  3. Oh I love Seether. There was a time I was a die hard Nickleback fan especially the song "You Remind Me" his voice makes me shiver.

    BTW I'm totally bopping my head and snapping my fingers to all these fun songs. How Fun!

  4. I do that! I do that! *ALL* the time!
    There's one song that always reminds me of Mercy Thompson - Florence & The Machine 'Dog Days are over'.
    I guess if I was cooler I'd accumulate songs that remind me of big moments in *my* life - but you're right, it's way more fun to associate them to characters and fictional relationships.

  5. Becky - glad to know i'm not alone in my weirdness!

    Kindle Vixen - oh yes, it's totally Jace to me ;) I <3 Jace!!

    KC - glad you like them; I love that NB song too.

    Danielle - I've gotta check that song out. And yes, it is fun to place a song with a character, even if it is nerdy!

  6. Super fun!!! I have certain songs that I place my head and Zsadist's head together and we are all k-i-s-s-i-n-g, first comes love ... then more love ... then some more love. haha

  7. Hannah - mmm...Zsadist...nom nom nom!!

    Blodeuedd- Awesome! ;)

  8. Sweetie, posts like this is another reason why I love your blog as much as I do! This is so fun!! I had a great time with all these songs, music and love are the best things in the world :)
    (and you're not nerdy at all!)
