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
(Harry Potter, by J.K. Rowling)
I know, I know, I seem to use Voldemort every couple of weeks…but GUYS, there are just SO MANY great “love” songs for this terrifying villain. SO. MANY. And this song?! Well…if you’ve read the books, you’ll understand COMPLETELY within the first two lines. SO. FITTING!
(The Phantom of the Opera)
Don’t TELL me this song doesn’t fit, guys. I mean sure, Christine sings more than she dances…but…it’s pretty easy to switch some of the words around. Also, she did start out as a background dancer, so… Yeah. IT FITS. Also, don’t try to convince me that loving Eric is wrong–again, it’s that whole antihero/villain thing! It gets me every time!
(The Twilight Saga, by Stephenie Meyer)
Guys. GUYS. When this pairing popped into my head, I almost killed myself giggling. I can’t believe I didn’t think of it before, it’s SO PERFECT! Like seriously. SERIOUSLY PERFECT!
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!
