Follow Friday: Songs Like Books

Q: Is there a song that reminds you of a book? Or vice versa? What is the song & the book?


“Welcome to the Jungle” reminds me of The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher. It may be partly because Butcher released a collection of short stories called “Welcome to the Jungle” based on those books. But I’m not fond of short stories as a rule, and only read Butcher’s because I liked Harry Dresden so much.

A few months ago, “Welcome to the Jungle” ended up being used by my local gym in a body pump class. Specifically, for the chest track. So I’m there on the bench, pushing that bar into the air, thinking about a wizard throwing fire around. (Dresden does love setting things on fire.) It was oddly motivating. 🙂
