Song on Sunday – Bang My Head

Oh, it’s been a long, l-o-n-g time since I posted one of these… At the moment, I’m listening to the same ‘soundtrack’ of songs that I’ve put together to compliment the book I’m working on. There’s a few David Guetta songs on the list, including this one, which reminds me of my rather sarcastic, mildly feisty heroine.

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.

So for my Song on Sunday this week I’ve chosen…

Titanium by David Guetta, featuring Sia. It’s been around for a while, but I’ve not got bored of hearing it yet: it feels a little like a power-ballad but is also pretty mellow with the female vocals. I really like this as a song for Katniss from The Hunger Games. I have to admit that after loving the books when I read them earlier this year and seeing the film recently, Katniss remains one of my favourite strong female leads – if there’s such a thing as the female bromance then I definitely get that with both Katniss and Jennifer Lawrence! In the books even when she makes a decision I don’t want her to – like on the railway tracks – I still respect what she chooses, because she does what feels right to her. (And there’s not too much self-centred navel-gazing for a heroine – there are plenty out there who could learn from Katnip!)

What about the song? A woman singing about being titanium, bullet proof – can’t shoot me down – I’m on fire…Come on! You know Katniss, this is absolutely an anthemn for her 🙂
