[Music Monday] – #1 – Ellie Goulding – Beating Heart (Divergent)

Music Monday is a weekly meme hosted by the Total Book Geek. The purpose of this bookish variant is to match a book with a particular song; whether it is character defining, a narrative element, or just an overall book defining track.

So why am I doing this? Well if I had to choose to only have one of the five traditional senses, it would be sound perception above all else. And hey I think it’d be neat to share music I listen to on a daily basis!

This Week’s Song:
Ellie Goulding – Beating Heart

Divergent – Veronica Roth

Initial Thoughts:

Okay so this was actually released today and its been on repeat. Legit. I don’t like to hype myself up for movies – especially Divergent –because I still have reservations about the movie adaptation translation, but I have plenty of Goulding’s tracks on my playlist. So regardless of this being in the movie or not, I would have probably included it in my listings.

Here’s the lyric video courtesy of Ellie Goulding’s VEVO on Youtube:

Alternatively, here’s the Soundcloud Track (courtesy of Interscope Geffen A&M Promotion):



My initial song choice for this first entry was actually going to be Zedd’s “Find You” (feat. Matthew Koma & Miriam Bryant) that’s also been on repeat and also part of the Divergent soundtrack. But then this came along today… guh.

    1. Glad to hear that! Though I think (for me) it’s one thing to be a faithful adaptation and another to be a compelling film in and of itself. But I will definitely re-evaluate my opinions once I watch it.
