Isn’t that an awesome graphic? Chris from Stuff As Dreams Are Made On has started a weekly meme called Music Mundays. His inaugural post about it is here. In Chris’s post, he says the new meme was inspired by a very cool Sunday Salon of Nymeth’s that included ‘bookish songs.’ Well, I can’t resist participating as well — it’s a great idea. Though I don’t know if I’ll be able to do bookish songs every week, I’ll certainly try, and I have a great one for my first post.
Some of you may know that I’m a Christian, so normally people might think that I like only conservative praise songs. Ummmm, no. I do like praise songs, but I also have a rock/alternative streak in me that has never fully been cast out. One of my favorite Christian rock bands is Red. Around Christmas time I was searching on youtube for some videos of theirs, and I saw this fan vid of Death Note with Red’s “Breathe Into Me,” which is one of my favorite songs. I even went so far as to check out Death Note (by Tsugumi Ohba) from the library, but since it was the holidays I didn’t even get it started. One of my son’s friends thought I was “so cool” for having that book! Anyway, I do plan on reading Death Note this year, but meanwhile, please enjoy this Red/Death Note video. I love the Christian symbolism in the song. There are several different fan vids of Death Note with “Breathe Into Me” — does anyone know if it was used for any of the DVD soundtracks? I’d love to know.
