I’m always really interested in seeing how different musicians and writers shape books into songs, so I’ve decided to start featuring some here.
The Fault in Our Stars – Troye Sivan
based on the novel by John Green
This song is absolutely beautiful, as is the cause it supports. I love the way this guy fits direct quotes from the book into the lyrics without it seeming too forced, and I especially love that the song is emotionally true to the book and yet profoundly hopeful.
If you know any other songs based on books, I’d love to hear about them.
Thanks for reading (and listening), and have a lovely day!
