My little sister is having to come up with 5 songs that relate to the scarlet letter and why, but I've never read the book so I'm in a jumble here. I've thought of the songs saving all my love for you by Whitney houston, it's not over by Chris daughtry and that's all. but I don't know how to explain why they relate.. please help.!?!?(:
I just read that! Heres my playlist for the song.
Autumn Leaves by Ed Sheeran--shows the desperation Hester and Dimmesdale feel and the separation between them. Also shows how they will "live forever now" after Dimmesdale dies (live forever in the minds of the town)
Yellow by Coldplay- shows how Dimmesdale would "bleed" for Hester, which he does. Also shows how much he loves her.
People Help The People by Birdy- Tells how if Dimmesdale told people of his relationship with Hester, the people wouldn't see him the same. Also the secrets of the "poor, broken hearted" townspeople.
Sea Fog by Keane- "sea fog" could represent the denial that Dimmesdale feels towards his admittance of his adultery, and how it crushes him. Maybe looking towards tomorrow, when they (he and Hester) can be together?
Boulder to Birmingham by The Fray- By far the best one. Literally talks about "in the night I watched it burn", which is a scene in The Scarlet Letter where Dimmesdale sees a burning "A". Also states "wash me clean" which is what Dimmesdale and Hester feel throughout the book.
I'm sure your sister can think of much more, though. Good Luck!Source(s): http://www.azlyrics.com/

I'm doing a project for my English III class, and I picked "Does Anybody Hear Her?" by Casting Crowns for the first few chapters. There's actually a reference to a scarlet letter in it ("Can't see past the scarlet letter and they never even met her....")
Love story by Taylor swift mentions the book if that helps.
