Soundtrack Saturday: The Fairyland Series


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 The It Girl by Katy Birchall

This week I decided to do one for the Fairyland series by Catherynne M Valente. I’ve been reading the whole series this week (a bit of fairy tale binge) and thought it’d be interesting to match songs with series. These may be less about the plot and more about strange sounds at times – I just wanted to get that whimsical feel!


Creation – Emmy the Great

And then the child becomes the warrior
And you’re the worrier so worry over this
What’s the thing that has you reaching out to grip it like a phantom limb?

AEIOU – Charlotte Sometimes

Saw you the other day
You said my hair was brown and long
I said I wasn’t sure
Why I take the time to talk to you boy 

Sad, Sad World – Amy Studt

Flattery has me endeared to you
As any flesh and blood would
You say you’d be good to me
Well so you should
I’m not that girl anymore
She went away
Now I’m the one with the game
And I won’t be played

Rabbit Heart – Florence + The Machine

The looking glass, so shiny and new
How quickly the glamour fades
I start spinning, slipping out of time
Was that the wrong pill to take?

White Rabbit – Jefferson Airplane

When logic and proportion
Have fallen sloppy dead
And the White Knight is talking backwards
And the Red Queen’s off with her head
Remember what the dormouse said
Feed your head
Feed your head

Running Out of Time- Motion City Soundtrack

Drip drap
Peeling back the skin of summer
Autumns, everything aligns
Inside out and I’m without
My heart is always running out of time
Always running out of time

Dreams Like Oceans – Meg & Dia

I see the ones who got a taste of their dreams
I think I want it more than them
But wanting is what children do
And taking is for ruined me
You gotta earn your way

Take a Step – Milo Greene

Upon the throne
Is a garden’s leaf
Is this the sigh
Of sweet relief?
Don’t dim the lights
No early grey
I’m all too soon
Forget this place
