Songs about Books
Upon listening to a favorite song I hadn’t heard in a while today, it occurred to me that there are a lot of songs inspired by literature and writers. I thought I would put together a short list of some of my favorites:
“Ophelia” –Ambulance LTD
“Bukowski” –Modest Mouse
“Holland 1945” –Neutral Milk Hotel (inspired by The Diary of Anne Frank)
“Books Written for Girls”–Camera Obscura
“Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” — Elton John (ok, this one’s a tiny bit of a stretch, but I couldn’t not post Elton on the Muppet Show)
What are some others?
