Happy Music Monday! You know how when you finish a book, you get that rush of joy and you just want to talk about it to everyone? Well, guess what? Rock stars get that feeling too! A great many songs have been based on books, and Scott's gathering a few to get us started. Here's the first right now:
Robert Smith wasn't just content to be a man beloved by '80s high school kids. He had to go after their recommended reading as well. Albert Camus's The Stranger carries the very scene that this song attempts to recreate. To Smith's credit, he's since updated the song's name to "Killing Another" to avoid any political misuse or racism. He wasn't being mean, he just wanted to have a little book club!
Get out your library card and put on your reading glasses. See you after the jump.
