This post has the possibility of becoming another so-tired-I'm-delirious post, so apologizes ahead of time.
Jimmy Eat World last night in NYC. You may be asking yourself "But Alley, you live in Boston and they're coming to your town tonight. No need to make the trip all the way to NYC" to which I respond "Not only are you correct but I originally had tickets for the show right here in Boston. And chose to go to the NYC show instead." Not to go into details but the decision was made based on work schedules for myself and Boyfriend as well as a healthy dose of insanity. I only went down for the night and I actually checked into my return flight to Boston while I was still in Boston. Fun how that works out. So my tiredness is due to not sleeping much last night after the show and having to get up bright and early today to make it back to Boston. And probably some stress because for a good hour Boyfriend and I didn't think we'd make it to the show due to traffic. As it was we missed the first 30-45 minutes and were almost ready to throw in the towel but A) that was a lot of travel and B) we already had the tickets. Even one song is better than none. And Boyfriend and I have seen Jimmy Eat World a stupid number of times so I already pretty much knew how things would go. I've been a fan of the band since I was about 15 so I've had lots of time to see them perform.
I know plenty of people (myself included) have read books based on movies or maybe even a TV show but I believe this is the first time I've read a book based on a song. Have any of you ever read a book because of a song you've heard? Would you read a book if you learned a song you liked was based on it? Are there other songs about books? I know Zeppelin had some LotR referenced songs but are there any others?
