Earworm of the Week - Book Sountrack (aka Apocalyptica Love)

Friday, July 15, 2011

Saw this on Michele Hauf's blog
Sometimes authors post their soundtrack for the books their released. It can be very enlightening. But often for me it's a black and white situation, either I love the same kind of music and it makes complete sense, or I really don't like it and I start wondering if I really want to read that book. LOL.

I remember when I was reading Kim Harrison's Hollow series, I would often go to her website to see which songs she thought fit the characters the most. She also posted people's choices and I thought it amazing. Readers can see very different styles for the same characters and I found lots of new bands to listen to this way. Most of MY choices for her books would be Nine Inch Nails songs. (No I promise I won't start rambling about my NIN love *is being a good Caro*)

Anyway, I'm reading Backstage Pass by Olivia Cunning (and it ROCKS *sing song voice*) and it's about a rock band. I can't help but think of Apocalyptica. I'm not even sure yet which kind of music the Sinners really make but if I think sexy sensual rock-star I think Apocalyptica *g* Apocalyptica is everything I love about music, they ooze sex (again prolly just me *wink*) , I love their music, and I'm fascinated by their music videos ;) How I wish I had a backstage pass to THEIR concert! *dreamy sigh* I also really love that they often release 2 versions of their songs, the instrumental one and songs with singers from very different bands.

So now my Earworms of the Week  will be dedicated to this delicious band.

Not Strong Enough (Featuring Brent Smith from Shinedown)

End of Me (feature Gavin Rossdale)  <=== YUM

Since I can't pretty well add all the videos of the songs I love (WAY too many *g*) I'll just link a few more:
- I Don't Care (featuring Adam Gontier from Three Days Grace)
- The Path (Instrumental version <== love it)
- The Path (featuring Sandra Nasic from Guano Apes)  <== Love it too *g*
- Bittersweet (featuring Ville Valo of  HIM  and Lauri Ylönen of The Rasmus)

Ok will stop there because this could go on forever lol.
I will leave you with an insane video of The Hall of the Mountain King played live in Germany.  It's insane how fast they play by the end. Look at their fingers playing.
I think this is the song I thought of the most while reading Backstage Pass, because the Olivia Cunning mentioned a few times how her characters had very 'adept' fingers. *g*.

If you've read Backstage Pass, which band did you think of when reading it? 
Did you have a specific sound in mind?
If you haven't read it, do you like seeing the author's Soundtrack for their books? 
Anyone else completely addicted to Apocalyptica?

PS: this post is dedicated to Susi, because I know she shares my love of Apocalyptica (AND Backstage Pass!

I looove Bittersweet and always have. It is so nice with Lauri's light voice and Ville's dark one.

I also like I am not Jesus and well many more, cos we all know Finnish music rocks ;)

pattepoilue said...

@Blodeuedd *headdesk* I forgot I'm Not Jesus! Damn I love that one too! *starts singing*

I'll have to agree with you on this one. *g* Apocalyptica and HIM are 2 good examples of that.

I used to listen to Bittersweet sooo often. I love Ville!

As you can see the fangirl is out today LOL

Blodeuedd said...

And I loved Lauri :D I have even seen them live twice..damn I do think Apocalyptica has played here and I never went to see them, oh pooh. Well I loved The Rasmus and Lauri more ;)

pattepoilue said...

really? Oh, I only liked 2 songs from the Rasmus. It's not really one of my favorite bands. And I want to wash his hair everytime I see him LOL *hides from the rock*

I really hope I could one day see Apocalyptica live.

Christi Snow said...

Olivia Cunning has playlists up on her website for both the Sinners books and they are awesome! I am pretty sure that it's an Apocalyptica song that is the theme song for ROCK HARD (book #2.) smiles...

pattepoilue said...

@Christi Snow Ohhhhhh I went and checked her website. I found the pdf playlists now that I knew they were somewhere on her website. *g*

Sweeeeeeet! I see a lot of bands I really love there, and a few I will check out. *g*
I will start making myself a playlist with these songs to listen while reading it. Thanks!!

ps: squeee there's even a Nine Inch Nails song *g* <==fangirl

Jackie said...

I've only got the Adam Gontier song on the ipod; that's been my only exposure to Apocalyptica until now (cuz Three Days Grace is from around here and they have some great songs too). I love Gavin Rossdale! Thanks for posting all these other great songs. And I think Trent Reznor is brilliant ;)

SusiSunshine said...

And for all the curious ones: this is another reason why I love Caro. LOL

pattepoilue said...

Wonderful post. You won my heart over with this one!

pattepoilue said...

@Melissa *g* YAY!!
I'm a sucker for long hair too but shhhhhht ;)
I'm so glad you like it. I fell in love with this music/band and just can't live without them now =P

Kristie (J) said...

I've never heard of this group before but I am liking them. A Lot!! I love classical music and to see some hawt goth like classical musicians do their spin on Hall of the Mountain King is really cool!

pattepoilue said...

@Kristie (J) They revolutionized Classical music for me. They have some excellent covers of classical stuff I'd not listen to otherwise. And this last vid always has me fascinated. <3

Minx said...

Hellloo, everytime I stop by you always have such interesting things on the blog, tis why I love it so!

Tag you're it! I tagged you for a summer fun meme at Gutter girls! *muah* Minxy xx

Cherry said...

This is the first time I've ever heard of Apocalyptica... now I think I'd go have a nosey about them :)

Evolet Yvaine @ BeefcakeandBabes said...

Wow! I can't believe someone else besides me has heard of Apocalyptica. I would LOVE to see them in concert. Thanks for putting up the videos. I'll be sure to check them out. I like a lot of their songs, but my favorite is the Metallica cover of "Nothing Else Matters." I play that at least 6 times in a row. LOL

When Olivia talked about the growling that Sed does (I'm a Sedhead. LOL), I was reminded of groups like Linkin Park and Disturbed.
