Because c’mon–you think those characters with the hearts of ice, the unbreakable wills, the huge tendency to bully DON’T jam out to the mushy-gushy on their iPods sometimes?
I am of the firm opinion that villains, just like everybody else, have a love song they just can’t help but…well…LOVE!
This will be a consistent new feature on my blog–probably posted every Monday. Because there are a LOT of villains, and a LOT of love songs, out there to match… and I’m bound and determined to do it!

VILLAINOUS LOVE SONGS
Because we all know THIS was how the fight for Meg really went (at least, in Hades’ mind). I can just HEAR Hades singing along to this at the top of his lungs, hairbrush in hand as a microphone…yup. It happened.

I mean…I know this isn’t TECHNICALLY a love song, but it works, okay?! I could see it being a love song, in Kendra’s world…and…yes. Just yes.
(The Raven Cycle, by Maggie Stiefvater)
Right?! RIGHT?! I mean, it doesn’t even really matter that he’s not specifically THE villain for this series…this song and Mr. Gray? Made for each other.
AND THERE YOU HAVE IT!
Villains…and the love songs they don’t want anyone to know they rock out to.
If villains in your world had a favorite love song, which would it be? Let me know what you think of this post below–or feel free to jump in and post your own pairs!
Until next time, happy book-ing!
