91: Book and Song Pairings - I'm Going to Go for It
Updated: Jan 22, 2020
We took on a new challenge for this episode, offering our ideas for songs that pair beautifully with books. While none of us would call this our wheelhouse (I don't think!), we loved hearing the others' ideas for songs that resonate, for books that somehow connect in a meaningfully way to the feeling or story of the song.
We would LOVE to hear your ideas for perfect book-and-song pairings. Visit us on social media to share your ideas!
