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 Darkest Minds, by Alexandra Bracken)
I mean, first off–the title of this song is PERF because hullo, colors are THE THING in this series okay? Second off, I imagine Clancy hums this song on a loop. ON. A. LOOP. Because why wouldn’t he?! I mean really–take a good long listen to the lyrics, and tell me you disagree. I dare you.
The White Witch
(The Chronicles of Narnia, by C.S. Lewis)
I’ve always imagined the White Witch to have a bit of a feral heart, so when I stumbled across this song, I IMMEDIATELY knew I’d struck gold! The lyrics only help to enhance this feeling. It’s like Kerli wrote this song specifically for Jadis.
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!
