Literary Lyrics


The Huffington Post recently published a list of songs that pay homage to the literary life ("10 Songs About Books, Writers and All Things Literary,” Jan. 4, 2011). They span several decades and generations. See which ones you recognize. Here’s a sampling:

“Sylvia Path,” by Ryan Adams (2001)

“Paperback Writer” by The Beatles (1966)

“1984” by David Bowie (1974)

“Hemingway’s Whiskey” by Kenny Chesney (2010)

“Yertle the Turtle” by The Red Hot Chili Peppers (1985)
