Today’s song about writing comes from Canadian indie pop band Library Voices, who I was recently introduced to by my friend in Saskatchewan.
It’s always nice to hear modern bands referencing classic literature. Makes me feel good that someone else in my generation is reading the stuff when not being forced to. The song also has a great title – Reluctant Readers Make Reluctant Lovers.
What’s the famous John Waters quote? “We need to make books cool again. If you go home with somebody and they don’t have books, don’t fuck them.”
I don’t want to die heartless in the heartland. Reluctant readers make reluctant lovers.
So, baby I’m yours.
