Books Make Their Own Music

Recently, I did a post on how poems seem to work like music to a writer.  I looked into this some more, and writers really do make their own music!  Not just the flow of their words into a book, but literally.  There are books out there that have been made into songs.  One is the book Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell.  This was made into a song by David Bowie.  Some other popular songs are One played by metalica based on the book Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo and White Rabbit based on the book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland written by Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the name Lewis Carroll.  Writing is an art, and so is music.  It is no wonder that these two come hand in hand.
