Soundtrack Saturday - Gone Girl

Soundtrack Saturday is a weekly meme created by Erin at The Hardcover Lover.  The idea is to pick a book and match up songs to it.  You can either do a mini-soundtrack (which has guiding questions) or a full soundtrack.  Now, I've usually gone with the mini-soundtrack option, but today I'm trying out the full soundtrack option!  And my chosen book is Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.  I've also decided not to explain my choices this week, because I think that if you've read the book (and know the lyrics) you'll understand.  So, I guess if you haven't read the book you could consider some of my song choices to be SPOILERS, so watch out if you haven't read or seen the movie.  Oh, and as usual, I'm basing my picks on my general interpretation of the lyrics rather than sound.  I wouldn't put these songs in a movie, they just remind me of events and characters.

1.  Black Cat - Mayday Parade

2.  Lying - Amy Meredith

3.  Blank Space - Taylor Swift

4.  Heartless - A Day To Remember

5.  Lights Out - Breaking Benjamin

6.  The Storm - Of Mice and Men

7.  A Shot Across the Bow - Mayday Parade

8.  Red in Tooth and Claw - Memphis May Fire

9.  Black Widow - Iggy Azalea ft. Rita Ora

10.  Loverboy - You Me At Six

11.  Ugly Heart - G. R. L.

12.  End of Me - A Day To Remember

So there's my soundtrack for this week - be sure to link yours below!


  1. This is genius!! I can never do that.. I know only 3 of these songs and they match PERFECTLY with the book it's actually funny. This is a great meme, it reminds me of PadfootandProngs07 (on youtube), she does these book and song thing that is quite similar to this. Creating a soundtrack that matches books perfectly is brilliant and I applaud you for that hahaha

    I will give these songs a listen, so thank you! :) <3

    1. That's what I thought before I gave it a go! It's not as hard as I first thought, and it's really fun!
      I'm glad you think the songs you know fit :)
      Oh yeah I know those videos!
      Thanks Jayy :)

  2. I read this at the end of last school year, but unfortunately, the only song I know is "Blank Space."

    I'm loving the graphics you made for your post! They are so pretty! Thanks for playing along! :)

    1. P.S. I shared this to Twitter. :)

    2. I finally pick a book you've read, but then you don't know the music! Lol!
      (I don't blame you - I would say a lot of it is obscure).

      Thanks Erin! I always have so much fun doing this :)

  3. I don't know half of the songs but the ones I do know fit the book perfectly. Now I'm off the checking out the ones I haven't heard of yet.
    Awesome choices! :)

    1. I'm happy you think so!
      Thanks Veronika :)

  4. Black Widow is so spot on! way too much really hahahaha I've recently discovered You Me At Six and I really like them so I'm checking the song you listed rightaway! Also, Breaking Benjamin <33

    1. Hahaha I'm glad you agree!
      Ooooh they're one of my favourites, I'm happy you like them :)
      And Breaking Benjamin too!
