Some scenes just deserve a sound track. I don’t care where you find them; whether it’s on the big screen or in a many-thumbed favorite novel, or an emotion-invoking short tale. Some scenes are easy to match to music, no matter what ilk they take, like ball room dances (think string quartets) and sunsets (sweeping voiceless G-rated tunes). Yet some of my favorite
reads, and indeed some specific characters, have their own sound tracts.
They clash swords, sit in contemplation, drink with friends, do needlework, ride off into the hills to save friends from foes; and they all have music in my head complimenting their deeds and thoughts. Tell me you don’t do the same with your favorite characters?
