Hi.

Welcome to my website. I mostly talk about books and writing, but you never know what else I might chat about. I'm glad you're here!

"Boom Clap" by Charli XCX

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AOPMlIIg_38 This is another one of those songs that I thought was annoying when I first heard it. “Boom clap? What’s a boom clap?” You know?

But I’ve heard it a lot now, and I’ve learned that it was on the soundtrack for The Fault in Our Stars, which is obviously one of my favorites. And I hear it and hear it, and it gets stuck in my head.

No silver or no gold

Could dress me up so good

You’re the glitter in the darkness of my world

Just tell me what to do

I’ll fall right into you

Going under, cast a spell, just say the word

I feel your love

Boom clap

The sound of my heart

The beat goes on and on and on and on and

Boom clap

You make me feel good

Come on to me, come on to me now

The lyrics aren’t the most original, nor the most complex. But they’re fun. This is a fun song to run to, as well. And, like any love song on the radio, it makes me think of H.

Gus and Hazel’s love story is something unique and beautiful. H and I aren’t in a book or anything, but I like to think our love is beautiful, too. Songs like this, from movie soundtracks, make me wonder what our love some would sound like, if someone was putting music to the story of our lives. Would it be like this? Boom clap? Something with simple lyrics and a good beat? Or something more complex, with lyrics that take a lot of effort to learn? Have you ever thought about this before?

Or is it just me?
