Music Monday is a weekly book meme, hosted by Athena of Total Book Geek. Everyone can join in, you just have to do the following:
- Choose a book or a scene from a book.
- Choose a song that fits said book or scene.
- Tell us why you paired them together.
- Don't forget to share the title and author.
- Be careful not to include spoilers!
This song fits really well with the Shift series by Kim Curran. In Shift and Control we follow Scott and his adventures as a Shifter (review). What makes Scott different from the others is that he can remember the outcome of previous decisions, which makes it harder for him. While others forget the mistakes they have made, Scott remembers all and it can get pretty confusing in his head. Also, and this is why the song fits so well, with every shift you make there is always a chance people will forget you, because the new choice results in never having met.
So don't pay attention to the fact that a girl is singing this song (Jennifer Hudson is so good!), it's about the lyrics. With all that shifting going on, Scott must not forget himself.
Please leave a comment with a link to your Music Monday post! If you don't have a blog and want to participate just share your links to the book and song in the comments.
