Theme Song Thursday!

This week I am reading Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book. The story is about Bod, or Nobody, who is a little boy growing up in a graveyard. His caretakers are the ghosts of the graveyard and he goes on adventures through his own explorations. He feels somewhat trapped but at the same time never knew a life outside of the graveyard. Through the book he explores more and more of life but ultimately still wants to come back to his family of ghosts.

Jack Conte-Lonely Ghost

Jack Conte is qutie possibly my favorite musician. He is extremely talented and a majority of his songs have a eerie feeling to them. The lyrics are always amazing and this song in particular discusses a dreamlike consciousness involving a little ghost. I felt like it was fitting to the book because it not only deals with a lost ghost boy like Nobody, but the creepy dreamlike state you are in when reading this book.
