I was re-reading Twilight (Stephenie Meyer) again - I started it about a week ago. At the same time jason had left a CD in the player by the band Muse. He had played some of their stuff for me before, and I wasn't a huge fan, it's really dark... unomfortably so sometimes - actually at times it encroaches on metal. But for whatever reason I left it play - Oh wait i know the reason, i was really mad about some lame school thing. Anyway, so i was listening to it and was struck by how much the music kept reminding me of the books - the whole series really. Basically, the sentiments and emotions in the music were very reminiscent of the Twilight books. Creepily so. I didn't think it was possible to have music remind you of a book but it REALLY did.
So I just wallowed in that idea for about 5 days, and finally told jason what I'd been thinking about the music/book connection - thinking he'd tell me i was crazy. BUT he just said "yes." This intrigued me. So I pushed, and he explained that apparently Stephenie Meyer listened to them A LOT while writing the books! She even thanked them in the acknowledgments sections of the last 3 books - i believe at one point saying something like "Did I mention Muse yet? Muse Muse Muse - I could not have written these books without the genius that is Muse"!
Can you believe that music can sound like a book? If you've read them, or if you're going to, i challenge you to have a listen to them and see if you think the same thing. Although maybe now that you know the connection you wont' hear it... Here's the link to their website - http://www.muse.mu/index.p
