The song Hotel California by the Eagles always reminds me of The Shining by Stephen King.

Bohemian Rhapsody reminds me of Crime and Punishment. It's very interesting.

2112 by Rush, is Anthem by Ayn Rand. I'm certain that's obvious and exactly what they meant to do, but the first time I heard it I didn't know that.

Oh, I love that book and film!!! I have the film and soundtrack and yes I agree with you on this. Also, I have to say Asleep reminds me of the book/film too.

Alec Benjamin's song "The Wolf and The Sheep" really reminds me of a book called Tuck Everlasting. I remember reading the book and then seeing the movie when I was younger and absolutely loved the movie. I was listening to the song the other day when I realized that it reminded me of it.

I have an entire playlist for Karen Moning's 'Fever' series, but if I had to pick one that most reminded me of the books, I would have to say "Bleeding Out" by Imagine Dragons. It captures the emotion of a specific happening in the books.

I remember reading "London for Immigrant suckers" and having Chris Rea's tune "The Curse of the traveler" in my head. That song is amazing.

Come on Eileen by Dexys Midnight Runners reminds me of The Perks of being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. Not only is it used in the movie, it just seems like something that would fit perfectly either way.
