Song on Sunday – Turn Me On

A Song On Sunday is an original meme hosted by Emily at Confessions Of A Bookaholic. It’s simple to join in all you have to do is:

1. Pick a song that you loved this week
2. Match it with a book
3. Grab the button
4. Link back to Emily and leave a link so she can see your post


So for my Song on Sunday I’ve chosen…

…David Guetta Turn Me On featuring Nicki Minaj…

Sorry – I’ve had to post the official video this time as it’s as important to the book connection as the song itself – so you’ll have to put up with skipping the advert. Unsurprisingly, a video featuring a robot woman, reminded me of Cinder by Marissa Meyer, which I read and reviewed earlier this year at Aside From Writing (read review here). There’s a lot of robot/human wonderings in the book – as I’ve found are common in similar books, such as Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep –  explored through Cinder’s perspective of herself and her combined robot and human parts. Listening to the lyrics in this song about ‘make me come alive’ and ‘turn me on’ (Prince Kai, anyone?) there are direct connections to scenes in the book.
