Thursday Tunes: Song of the Month May: Gayle Forman: Poll and Giveaway

I am so excited that Gayle Forman has agreed to choose the Song of the Month for April to coincide with the publication of Where She Went.

Read Gayle's very interesting Bio here

This months song is chosen by the amazing Gayle Forman. The only problem is, Gayle has given me 2 amazing songs to choose from - both fitting to Adam [ : D ] So I thought I would enlist your help. Take part in the poll to decide the song of the month for your chance to win a copy of Where She Went - review here.

This is what Gayle had to say about the song choices:
How about Sufjan Steven's Chicago. Even though it's not a NYC song there is something about that song that is such pure redemption, it makes me cry and always made me think of Adam. Either that or Guided By Voices (band name alone is fitting for Adam) I Am A Scientist.

First song is: Sufjan Stevens - Chicago

Isn't it beautiful and yes, Gayle and I know it is called Chicago and that Where She Went is set in NYC but just look at those lyrics.

Second Song: Guided by Voices - I am a Scientist

Now do you see why I couldn't make a decision [ : D ]

If you had a second chance at first love . . . would you take it?
It’s been three years since Adam’s love saved Mia after the accident that annihilated life as she knew it . . . and three years since Mia walked out of Adam’s life forever.
Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Julliard’s rising star and Adam is LA tabloid fodder, thanks to his new rock star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York by himself, chance brings the couple together again, for one last night. As they explore the city that has become Mia’s home, Adam and Mia revisit the past and open their hearts to the future—and each other.
Told from Adam’s point of view in the spare, powerful prose that defined If I Stay, Where She Went explores the devastation of grief, the promise of new hope, and the flame of rekindled romance.

The Song and the Winner will be announced next Thursday 7th April. Open Internationally. You don't have to be a follower but I am not going to stop you if you want to [ ; D ] All votes to be made by Wednesday 6th April Midday. Remember to vote. Comments much appreciated [ : D ]
