Soundtrack Saturday – Pirate Latitudes
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: Pirate Latitudes by Michael Crichton
One Sentence Summary: In the English colony of Port Royal, Jamaica in 1665, Pirates are hanged but Privateers are highly encouraged, although they’re basically the same thing.
Soundtrack Song: “A Bar In Amsterdam” by Katzenjammer, from the album Le Pop
Why I chose this song: The pirates, I mean Privateers, in the harbour town of Port Royal aren’t going to be listening to soft, sweet songs in the bars right off the docks. They’re going to be listening to something a little rambunctious, something that will start a riot.
But the storm is a’coming ‘cross the hills tonight,
like a vain full of rain to the
hearts that should fight.
What song would you add to the soundtrack for this book or the one you’re currently reading?
