4th qtr blog 2 music connection

    To represent "Hold Me Closer, Necromancer" I chose the song "Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites" by Skrillex.  This is a different type of music called dub-step that doesn't contain many words but has really cool sound effects.  I chose this song because it starts out kind of slow, just like the book, but then gets crazy really fast.  I also chose this song because of its title.  There are many different kinds of scary monsters in this book, but there are also some nice ones.  The rythym of this song is perfect for the book and so is the song title itself.  Choosing a song for this book would have been a lot easier if I would have just gone the easy route in choosing one of the chapter titles as my song.  Something really cool and unique about this book is that each chapter title is the title of a song.  It is really cool whenever you get to chapter with song title that you recognize so that you already kind of know the mood of that chapter.  I wanted to choose a song that wasn't part of the book to make it a little bit harder.  That's why I chose the popular song by Skrillex.
