so i was driving to work this morning listening to the first song posted below. by the time i got to work, i was trying to think of all the times that old poetry or great books were used in or inspired rock songs. i came up with a couple easy ones, but maybe you can name others?

bill's 29th & 66th sonnet:


sammy coleridge:


if i wanted to, i could have posted just iron maiden songs that are inspired by literature and there's at least half a dozen right there.

then there's these guys with some old testament stuff, and some lovecraft:


(i coulda posted call of cthulu but it was too easy, and there are no lyrics for that either)

Was going to post the Alan Parson's take on Asimov, but how often do you get to hear UK Subs? :D



If you don't know the literary reference for this one, you need to read more children's books. ;)
