|Saw this on Michele Hauf's blog|
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!
