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
The Goblin King
I mean…this, basically. Which is pretty much what he says in that GIF up there. (I have to be honest, though… I’ve always sort of had a thing for him, as cruel as he can be.)
(Hawksong, by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes)
Okay, okay, so TECHNICALLY Zane isn’t a villain. BUT…I’m counting him here anyway, because he’s one of my faaaaavorite anti hero characters and I just… GAAAAH! I adore him. Also, this song? Totes yes.
(Monstrous Beauty, by Elizabeth Fama)
Again, not exaaaaactly a villain…but at the same time, I wouldn’t classify her as a hero either. And I feel like there are pieces of this song (okay, okay, THE ENTIRE SONG!) Syrenka would appreciate…and hum to herself over. And over. And OVER again.
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!
