Actually, I know of a Project 86 song called "Salem's Suburbs" and they mention the Scarlet Letter in there. That's the only one I know of that makes a direct reference to it, I'll see if I can find anymore that's based off of it.

Schecter C-1+ w/ Seymour duncan Jazz (neck) and Full Shred (bridge), with Sperzels
B-52 LG-100A 4x12 half stack

Some sort of acoustic Squier
Boss Flanger

Everlast - "What It's Like"

Mary got pregnant from a kid named Tom who said he was in love
He said don't worry about a thing baby doll I'm the man you've been dreamin' of
But three months later he said he won't date her or return her call
And she sweared god damn if I find that man I'm cuttin' off his balls
And then she heads for the clinic and she gets some static walkin' through the doors
They call her a killer, and they call her a sinner, and they call her a *****
God forbid you ever had to walk a mile in her shoes
'Cause then you really might know what it's like to have to choose
Death to Ovation haters!

Plummet: Damaged 03. Covers shame pretty well IMO.
iio: Smooth. If any song ever did sex, it's this one.

Cursive - "Bad Sects" (About a leacherous priest and a young girl who have an affair and get pregnant)
Poor advice.

You can probably disregard many of the responses you get, because people are just going to post their favorite songs regardless of what they're about.
Poor advice.

Tool - The grudge

Direct(i think) reference to the Scarlett Letter (Unable to forgive your scarlett letterman)

Also talks about transformation, the reference to turning lead into gold comes to mind, also grudges. (Turn these leaden grudges into gold)

Here're the lyrics : http://www.lyricsondemand.com/t/toollyrics/thegrudgelyrics.html

I have read the other posts and have to ask, Do any of you know what the F a scarleltt letter is? If I recall Scarlett letter was a sign put on a woman accused of adultry; not that a man would ever have to carry such a burden.

The song I suggested:

Quote by Jag Panzer
She walks in moonlit shadows to make men beg
Her slender figure slithers and you will pay

A tender morsel for rich men, a prize to the poor
The way she looks is so lethal, drops you to the floor
It's said that our dear Scarlet shall never be a puppet
She is regal as the queen, she is royally obscene

She bears the scarlet letter

Her scent is quite delicious, her form so exquisite
Speaks so softly in your ear of the dirty things you fear

She prowls the starlit avenue for her next prey
Her purr will lure you in and lock you away

She wears a gown of satin, underneath is bare
In privacy she will teach you all you ever dare
Men sell their lives to taste her, to have and never waste her
Skilled in etiquette, she'll be the trophy of the ball
Yet in secret chain you to the wall

Her skin as soft as feathers, her demeanor tough as leather
Pay the price to sample her wares, she will drain away all cares


Problem?

Find one based on stuff that matches with the metaphor of the forest-y bit being their little haven where nobody can find them?

Also you're off topic. This thread is about Reva eating snowmen.

Man I hated that book, just had to read it for english. The whole time I read I felt like some older Opeth songs would fit well with the mood of the book, you could check out some of their lyrics.

At least someone knows; although I am not familiar with that song so....my bad.

All right I read the Scarlet letter for english class (pretty good book), and whenever I hear "Loverman" by Metallica, it just reminds me of the relationship between Dimmsdale, Hester, and Chillingworth.
It might just be me, but a Loverman (Dimms/Chill) knocking at your door and then its the devil at the door, sin is at the door
Pretty much the Scarlet letter

I want to reassert that this was Serious Business, given the turn the thread took a few posts back. Smooth might be a bit inappropriate for a school assignment though.

Just a bit.
