Soundtrack Saturday – Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness
Feel free to join in! Either leave your soundtrack pick or the link to your soundtrack post in the comments.
From the author’s website:
Todd and Viola are caught in the middle, with no chance of escape.
As the battles commence, how can they hope to stop the fighting? How can there be peace when they’re so hopelessly outnumbered? And if war makes monsters of men, what terrible choices await?
But then a third voice breaks into the battle, one bent on revenge…
Right after I finished The Ask And The Answer (Chaos Walking book 2) I heard “Mecha Love” by Hadouken! for the first time and thought it would work perfect with all the chaos coming up in book 3, Monsters of Men. Then I started MoM and, well, it just didn’t work. But still every time I heard “Mecha Love” I still thought of the book.
When I’ve listened to the song and I’ve tried to make it align with Todd & Viola’s perspective. But when I was thinking of this post today, I came to the song from a different perspective; from the perspective of 1017.
Then the rage, the unwillingness to back down, the last stand… it all fits. Throw in some explosions from The Answer and Spackle/New Prentisstown battles and you’ve got the visuals for this week’s soundtrack song.
You wont break my armour
I will never surrender
Take a walk
So this is the last stand
So this is your last chance
So this is your last
You wanted the world
You wanted it all
