Music Mondays

I think that if I were to do this like others, I would upload a video or link to my favorite song at the moment. But, being a book geek writing a book blog, I thought I rather would share some interesting music over time that corresponds with literature. The two are so intertwined that you will find book titles based on songs, songs based on books and a lot of intermarrying between the two.

For a lot of obvious reasons, I have been thinking about George Orwell’s infamous novel, 1984. When it was first published, and even when I first read it, so many of the nightmares envisioned by Orwell seemed “crazy,” far-fetched, a sort of “that would never happen here” scenario. Sadly, we are living in those times now.  This, of course, led me to my nostalgic adoration for David Bowie’s music and his song “1984,” based wholly on the book itself. In fact, Bowie wrote a an entire album based on the book, but today I’m sharing the first. Enjoy it while you still are able to do so.
