Woo hoo! 21,785 page views later, we bring you our One Hundredth Post and what better way to celebrate than with a pop quiz. Songs inspired by books. Simple, which books were the inspiration for the following songs. Some of them are so easy that it's criminal! We are giving away beautiful books my friends, some of our personal favorites.

First Prize # 1 -  The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon - (Afsha's favorite book)
First Prize # 2-  The Armageddon Rag - George R R Martin (Brand new off the press)
Runner-up - The CD of your choice from any of the artists featured below. They are all classics. Ok, maybe not Mc Lars.

And for any early bird - two passes to the MET Museum in New York. Don't ask me why I have them, they're yours if you want them.

So here goes!
  1. Big Brother - David Bowie
  2. Ramble On- Led Zeppelin
  3. Don't stand so close to me- Sting
