Some good choices:

 

Li’l Red Riding Hood by Sam “The Sham” and the Pharaohs was created around Charles Perrault’s fairy tale “Little Red Riding Hood”.  In this version the ending  comes before the grandmother makes her entrance, and explicitly uses the ambiguity of modern English between “wolf”, the carnivore, and “wolf”, a man with concealed sexual intentions. The effect, whether intentional or incidental, is to strip away the fairy tale’s metaphorical device and present the relationship between the two characters without literary pretense.

 Love Song for a Vampire by Annie Lennox from “Dracula was recorded as the theme song to Francis Ford Coppola’s 1992 film adaptation of Dracula.

a bit different Lake Pontchartrain by Ludo


Love Potion Number Nine describes a man seeking help finding love, so he talks to a Gypsy, who determines through palm reading that he needs “love potion number 9”. The potion causes him to fall in love with everything he sees, kissing whatever is in front of him, eventually kissing a cop on the corner, who breaks his bottle of love potion. Some radio stations banned the song, due to the lyrics involving “Kissing a cop”.


If you are a Lord of the Rings fan you will like Lux Aeterna by Clint Mansell, the song was used for the trailer The Two Towers but was not in the movie.

Finally take some time to read the legend that inspired La Cathedrale engloutie (“The Engulfed Cathedral”) by Claude Debussy. It is a great myth that one can read about.
