Blog post #20 – Theme song for your main character

Theme song for your main character

Welcome to the blog post prompt for this week. If you’re blogging along this week, or coming back another time to join in, please add your link in the comments so we can check out your blog too. If you add a link, please visit one or two of the other links and add a comment.

Almost everyone knows the theme song for Darth Vader in Star Wars. Think of some of your favourite characters in the movies and many will have a theme song or piece of music you will forever associate with them.

Is there a song or a piece of music that makes you think of your main character? What is is about that piece of music that makes you think about your main character?

For this blog post idea, find a clip of that music on YouTube and share it as a blog post along with reasons why this piece of music reminds you of your main character. Are there words in the song that speak to you, or is it the way the music makes you feel?

After you’ve explained your reasoning behind the piece of music, as your readers if they agree with your choice, and, if they don’t agree with you, ask for their suggestions for an alternative theme song.

For a twist on this post, include a piece of music and ask your readers to guess which of your characters fits best.

If you are using this prompt on your blog, add your link in the comments. I look forward hearing the theme songs for your main character.

  1. Great Post. I secretly always have had a theme song for my characters. I thought it was cheesy–and never wanted to admit. I guess I can finally come out of the closet with it. : ) I guess I’m not crazy—It really is helpful. : )

    • I’m glad you found this prompt useful. Having a theme song for your character isn’t cheesy at all, it can make a great blog post and another way that readers can connect with your characters.
