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
(Twilight, by Stephenie Meyer)
And by “you,” he means Edward and Alice, mainly. Cause, you know…selfish.
(Alice in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll)
Is it sad that I sort of see The Walrus singing this to The Carpenter at the end of this story? C’mon, you all know it happened.
(Peter Pan, by J.M. Barrie)
I mean…right!? I think yes. Granted, Peter to me is more an ANTIHERO than a villain, but… Think about it: He’s always whisking people away with him to Neverland. Obviously Peter doesn’t like going home alone…
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!
