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.

Song on Sunday – 3

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 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 🙂
