Dance Party: Open Mic

No theme this week---that's right it's open mic.  You know what that means---you can submit ANY song for ANY book you want and we'll update the post.  We'll get you started!

Maggie: So Noelle finally got me to try Faking Faith after some light harasking (not a typo) and the two magic, automatic-read words: Almanzo Wilder. It did not disappoint. Like Dylan, I went old school for my song choice:
"We'll crucify the insincere tonight / We'll make things right / We'll feel it all tonight."

Noelle: After Maggie's review of Love-Shy, I just knew I had to borrow it ASAP.  I loved it!  At first I was tempted to use the most emo song of all time for good ol' Nick but this is a dance party after all so....
I went with Close to Me by the Cure.  Here's the cover by The Get Up Kids as well.

Your Requests:

Book: Dash & Lily's Book of Dares Requested by: Tortiak
Song: Hospitality by Eight Avenue  Because: "Been listening to this for the last 2 days. Can't get enough of it. Haven't got the foggiest what it's about, but when I hear it I think of New York and therefore think of this book :)"

The request line is open!


  1. Oh you guys, I'm no good at matching musice with books, I leave it to you two, the experts ;)

  2. Wow, I've loved Smashing Pumpkins for years but never seen a film clip...SO not what I was expecting. But very cool. And now I want to go read something steam punky.
