Songs Based On Literature

Someone went to some trouble to compile this list of songs that are based on books or a specific character from a book. I love that so many books have inspired other forms of art, including these songs, musicals like Les Miserables and Phantom of the Opera, fine art, etc.

Here is a taste:

The Police - Don't Stand So Close To Me (Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov)

Loreena McKennitt - Lady of Shalott (Lady of Shalott by Alfred Tennyson)

Robert Marlow - Face of Dorian Gray (The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde)
