The second song is by a German artist because the heroine Emily is from Germany. The meaning of the lyrics makes sense in a way too, although it isn’t specifically a song about relationships. The following lines "Gib mir ein kleines bisschen Sicherheit in einer Welt in der nichts sicher scheint.“ mean „Give me a little bit of safety and security in a world in which nothing seems safe”.
The second song is dedicated to Ireland, the country of the hero Daniel, and I’ve always liked listening to it.
The second song is one of my favourites and captures the feelings of both protagonists, knowing in their hearts that they’re in love, but denying or questioning it.
The second song is much sadder and deals with the heroine Cathy’s difficult past and her longing to love and be loved again.
The Bond song reflects another major character of the books and their badass attitude as well as the thriller side of the novels. Just look at these lyrics: “You’ll never know how I watched you - From the shadows as a child - You’ll never know how it feels to get so close - And be denied - It’s a gold and honey trap - I’ve got for you tonight - Revenge it’s a kiss, this time I won’t miss - Now I’ve got you in my sights - With a golden eye, golden, golden eye”.
I also considered a third song, S&M by Rihanna because of the line “’Cause I may be bad, but I'm perfectly good at it.” and because of something you'll understand if you've read the books.
For those who haven't read all books, which of them would you like to pick up just judging by the songs?
