Fairy tales in modern day-Music

Aside from art, movies and commericals fairy tales also come up in music. In some of them specific fairy tales are easy to identify. For example Diana Vickers’ Cinderella (“If Cinderella was here tonight….Midnight calling but she don’t care….I would lose both, both of my shoes stay all night”) clearly refers to Cinderella. Lost Boy by Ruth B (“I am a lost boy from Neverland Usually hanging out with Peter Pan….He sprinkled me in pixie dust and told me to believe, believe in him and believe in me”) is also an example, referring to Peter Pan. Others may be harder to identity but by looking at the lyrics you can see the references. One example is Kissing Frogs by RaeLynn (“‘Cause I ain’t looking for my Prince Charming on a horse….Yeah I don’t need a Mr, tryin’ to fit that perfect slipper…Wrong with having fun and Kissin’ frogs”) which likely refers to The Frog King and Cinderella. Another is The Boot Fits by Granger Smith (“Just a small town Cinderella….Fairy tale good as it gets if the boot fits….You’re like a princess, in a blue cotton dress I can be your prince”) which refers to the fairy tale love story as a whole and Cinderella.
