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
(Dreamcatcher, by Stephen King)
Leeeeeeet’s be honest for a second, penguins–this song? Is kinda sorta SUPER creepy. And Mr. Grey? Well, he wants to eat everybody and take over their meat suits, so… Yeah, I’d say this pretty much sums him up!
(Harry Potter, by J.K. Rowling)
Kreacher is honestly one of my FAVORITE examples of character development and forgiveness in any novel EVER. And this song is pretty much exactly what happens. I mean…can you imagine keeping the secrets Kreacher did for all those years? That would be torture. No wonder he’s angry and bitter when we first meet him!
Tell me this doesn’t fit. Go ahead. List your reasons. I dare you.
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!
