Soundtrack Saturday is a weekly meme created and run by Erin at The Hardcover Lover. I’ve been really enjoying making these so am trying to make it a regular thing on my blog.
Last week I chose to make a soundtrack for Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson.
This week I decided to do one for The It Girl by Katy Birchall. I thought this would make a nice change, as the books I’ve done it for recently have all been a bit dark/dramatic, and this one is a lot more fun, so I can have some upbeat songs!
The Last Great Star in Hollywood – Meg & Dia
I’ve got my same old nose and no cheek bones
I’ve got my stomach rolls, rather bare wardrobe
They’ve got seven floors, one on the east coast
Why they grin so wide, they’ve got their visions no one knows.
Gold Girls Guns – Metric
I remember when we were gambling to win
Everybody else said better luck next time
I don’t wanna bend like the bad girls bend
I just wanna be your friend
Is it ever gonna be enough?
Anything But Me – Lindsay Lohan
Now is a never ending thing
One moment turns into another
Before I’ve had time to run from all the other ones
And it’s so hard to live a dream
When the everything that they want you to be
Is anything but me.
Mean – Taylor Swift
You, with your switching sides
And your wildfire lies and your humiliation
You have pointed out my floors again
As if I don’t already see them
I walk with my head down
Trying to block you out ‘cos I’ll never impress you
I just want to feel okay again.
It’s a Hit – We Are Scientists
I should have know this would happen from the start
This kind of function’s gonna have to fall apart
I guess before I would’ve sworn that we were friends
Maybe this problem points towards some larger trend
Good Girl – Carrie Underwood
Hey good girl, with your head in the clouds
I bet you I can tell you what you’re thinking about
You’ll see a good boy, gonna give you the world
But he’s gonna leave you crying with your head in the dirt
Proved You Wrong – Cassadee Pope
Hey, I’m breaking free just watch me walk away,
Had your hooks in me but I escaped
I don’t need excuses, done with your abuses,
Telling me that I’m not strong
Just listen to the song
Guess I proved you wrong
