Soundtrack Saturday – Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
From the author’s website:
Louisa Clark is an ordinary girl living an exceedingly ordinary life—steady boyfriend, close family—who has never been farther afield than their tiny village. She takes a badly needed job working for ex–Master of the Universe Will Traynor, who is wheelchair bound after an accident. Will has always lived a huge life—big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel—and now he’s pretty sure he cannot live the way he is.
Will is acerbic, moody, bossy—but Lou refuses to treat him with kid gloves, and soon his happiness means more to her than she expected. When she learns that Will has shocking plans of his own, she sets out to show him that life is still worth living.
Soundtrack Song: “All I Want” by Kodaline
I only recently discovered this song and have listened to it as background noise a few times, without giving it much attention. But this time I took a close listen to the lyrics and thought of Will and Lou, and it made me cry – big fat tears. I figured I’d found the right song for this post. Give it a listen.
