Maluca, I've entered several Man of La Mancha songs for a musicals-themed collection, but they're in draft form. Not sure if you'll want them, but if so, give me a few days. They're "works in progress".

I think I'll stick to one song per book to have more diversity.

Not a novel so it probably doesn't fit, but Sting's Mad About You was written about David and Bathsheba.

You could create a collection "Songs inspired by the Bible", there's probably a lot of songs out there...

this probably doesn't count but Claudio Sanchez from Coheed & Cambria has a comic book series that he based some of the song Welcome Home off of (but also partly his life) and a lot of their albums are based on it.
