For many people, music is a creative form that fills the gaps between expression and interpretation. Oftentimes, music is able to express a mood or feeling that words or visuals cannot. But what about when music and words are paired together? Introducing literary jukebox, a project by Maria Popova that features “quotes from beloved books, each thematically matched with a song.” From Beethoven to David Bowie, Popova has built a collection of songs that really complement the meanings of each of the quotes she finds. You can access literary jukebox on Brain Pickings¬†or you can follow the page on tumblr.
