Soundtrack Saturday – Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married

November 14, 2009

Soundtrack Saturdays is a little thing where I share a song with you that I think would fit on the soundtrack for the book I’m currently reading. Feel free to join in!

Current Read: Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married by Marian Keyes

One Sentence Summary: A psychic tells Lucy that she will be married in about a year, which sounds great, but Lucy doesn’t even have a boyfriend.

Soundtrack Song: “You Can’t Hurry Love” by The Supremes

Why I chose this song: There’s a scene in the book where Lucy and Daniel are out for Indian food and keep making up songs about the food. Such as:

“What’s this?”
“Vegetable curry.”
“OK. You can’t curry love, you just have to wait.” (p. 479)

The lyrics of the song also fit so well with the story, of being unable to find love. Okay, so that’s the story of most chick lit, but it fits well here as well. Lucy’s really having a hard time of it, and this is just the type of song she’d listen to while curled up under her covers, hiding from the world.

What song would you add to the soundtrack of the book you’re currently reading?
