Been wondering where I am and what happened with this blog? Well, I've moved on. My fascination with music continues, but this time it's about the intersection between music and the stories found in a book, not on the TV screen.
Have you ever read a book that pulled you out of your life while you were reading it, one that gave you a glimpse of what else might be out there, or what you hoped might be out there? Have you ever had a song take you back to the way you felt while you were reading that book?
Music has power to pull us back to a moment. a feeling, a memory. It can transport us back to the strongest emotions of our lives with just a few notes. My new blog, The Literary Soundtrack, looks at those moments, at the songs and books that come together in our hearts to lift us out of our lives for second or two.
Come share your opinions with us. What songs do you think of when you're reading your favorite book? What book do you think of when you hear your favorite song? What do you think of our choices?
