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 🙂

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

Beautiful People by Chris Brown. With a whole song focused on beautiful people and living your life, how could this not remind of Bella Swan’s journey in the Twilight Saga? I can just imagine this as a soundtrack song to the wedding where she spins around and all she sees is beautiful people – er, I mean vampires…

So for my first Song on Sunday I’ve chosen…

Real Hero by College and Electric Youth – taken from the soundtrack of Drive – I saw the film a few weeks ago but this song has really stuck with me. The book I match it with is my own WIP The Rainbow Maker’s Tale , which is Balik’s story…anyone who knows Hope’s Daughter will probably see why this reminds me of him and I’ve been listening to it while I’ve been writing this week. So – take a listen 🙂
