This week’s assignment asks for a song as the novel soundtrack, as well as a movie and book, which the main character would like.
I’ve chosen actually a number of tracks that highlight much of the story.
Prelude by Muse is the overall track.
Nocturne pour Tamaki from the Ouran Highschool Hostclub Soundtrack would go with chapter one.
Unintended and Undisclosed Desires by Muse are tracks explaining much of Ella’s intent toward a relationship and much of what she tries to convey in her letters to Frederick or in her general explanation to the reader.
She Will Be Loved by Maroon 5 is also an underlying thematic song expressing the love that Lawrence feels for Ella.
The climax has two tracks. Dead Reckoning by Clint Mansell, a soundtrack piece to Smokin’ Acres, explains some of the rising tension in chapter 9. To The Opera which is an adaptation of Mozart’s Don Giovani is from one of the climactic scenes of Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. The scene in the book was inspired from the scene in the movie, among many other things.
Ella’s favorite novel would be Ella Enchanted. Which actually I had thought of regardless of name similarity! But the characters are a lot alike. Ella is actually a family name for me and I hope to pass it on in the family one day.
Her favorite movie would be The Illusionist.
