    God pounding heavy tune! That one for sure.

    Also Neil Young. Every time I hear the lyrics "out of the blue and into the black."

    "When the Stars Go Blue" Ryan Adams. Lisey's Story. I agree with the Stones reference too. So cool when Jake talks about it. Also "Happy" by Kieth Richards.

    The Court of The Crimson King always puts me on the journey to the Dark Tower....

    I always thought that line was 'if there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now' followed up by, I think ' It's just a spring clean for the may queen'

    Ok, this is a LONG song, but it's worth it. It always makes me think about poor Gabrielle Deschain. Neglected by her husband, betrayed by her lover, killed by her own son.
    So beautiful and sad. Don't listen if you are already feeling sad.

    And of course, the literal description of Roland himself:

    Ok last one: This one always reminds me of the very ending of the Dark Tower, because:
    "But it was only fantasy.
    The wall was too high,
    As you can see.
    No matter how he tried,
    He could not break free."

    and of course:
    "Hey you, don't tell me there's no hope at all
    Together we stand, divided we fall."

    (I know, I'm kind of DT oriented :p I really do love his other work too!)

    I think the Soundgarden song, "I Been Away For Too Long" would work for an "It" movie.

    I'm too unimaginative for media to cross over in my mind, much. I don't have a song that, on its own, reminds me of Stephen King. However, when I hear the Eagles' Peaceful Easy Feeling or Blue Oyster Cult's Don't Fear the Reaper, I think of The Stand because they were quoted to good effect in that book.

    Recently I've been listening a lot of the '60's music on Youtube, and everytime I here the song "My Boyfriend's Back" by the Angels, it reminds me of 11/22/63,
    (I'm sure everybody remembers that part of the book)

    Pet Sematary has been covered by several Finnish bands. There's actually a music video by a group called "Corpsevainaat"

    Seminole Wind by John Anderson...reminds me of Andy, standing at the crossroads...does he sing about the Seminon wind or is he directing the runners on second to steal third?

    Pretty much all the music by Gustavo santaolalla from the video game " the last of us" reminds me of the stand. This is probably because the last of us is a post apocalypse game and has some similarities to the stand. One song in particular is called "the choice" (i'll add the songs later, I'm on my phone right now), and I can picture quite clearly, a sweeping shot of the mass desertion, broken windows, car pile ups and overgrown wilderness.

    Does anyone who has played the game feel this too?

    Is the game good? I haven't played it but I've seen trailers for it and I think it looks awesome!

    It is truly brilliant. It's visually stunning, storytelling is unrivalled and the characters are so deep and well written. I think this is another reason why it reminds me of the stand - the character and story development.

    I can't play it, because I believe it's PS exclusive, right? But I really love that kind of game, last one I played was an Arcade titel on Xbox Live called State of Decay (Zombie Apocalypse though, not post-apocalyptic). But games like Borderlands, Fallout, Rage. I love them. There's something about a society that's fallen apart at the seems that's just so appealing (In fiction! :D)

    Anything from RUSH makes me think of SK period! The kid who turned me on to those books in the early-80s was a HUGE fan of the band. To this day, can't listen to Limelight or Subdivisions without giving a hearty nod to Stephen.
    Then there's Black Sabbath's Born Again album that makes me think of The Dead Zone. Especially the title track, Keep It Warm and Zero The Hero.
