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:
Storytime, Last Ride of the Day,
& Scaretale – Nightwish
Night Terrors – Tim Waggoner
So after weeks of mellow music, I’m going to bring in a curveball with this selection—it’s symphonic metal. This genre may not be for everyone, but if you’re willing, have a listen! You can skip my long rambles and just listen to the music if you wish, it’s going to be a long post that makes no sense whatsoever (even to me…).
After reading Night Terrors by Tim Waggoner – it was basically a no-brainer that I had to choose something from Nightwish’s – Imaginaerum album. The high-concept of the album is quintessentially a metaphorical reflection on one’s life at a point near death—namely to engage life retrospectively through the eyes of a child. The basis of the term: Imaginaerum, is for all-intents-and-purposes, a spin on sanitarium to depict a world where one’s imagination can be healed.
