Top Ten Tuesday: Name That Tune | Book Titles as Song Titles

 

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.


THIS WEEK'S TOPIC:
BOOK TITLES THAT WOULD MAKE GREAT SONG TITLES

This was a fun one mostly because it was so easy. Crazy how many book titles lend themselves so easily as song titles. And some of those have such a vibe that you just know what kind of song it would be.


I'm torn between a country song and a folky singer-songwriter vibe.
An atmospheric song from an indie band.
Heavy metal, obviously.
Actually, this is a song title by ELO from the early 80's.
A country song, no doubt.
Something by Maroon 5.
An adult-contemporary love song.
A Taylor Swift song about an ex.
A power ballad.
A pop/rock song from Imagine Dragons.


HAVE YOU READ ANY OF THESE BOOKS?

  3. Lies & Lullabies seems country to me. I don't know if I could do as well as you did with all of these.

  4. Lies and Lullabies feels like it was made to be a song! I'm definitely feeling a country-vibe from it :) And Wild at Heart would indeed be a perfect Imagine Dragons song!

    1. And since that one came from a book about a rock band, it seems like an obvious choice. :)

  12. Wild at Heart sounds like a stevie Nicks song. :) Say You Still Love Me sounds like Fleetwood Mac. I must be on a Fleetwood/ Stevie bender... :)

  18. How creative! My favorites are What You Left Behind, Regretting You, and Wild at Heart - could totally see all of those as songs!

  19. I have found that book titles have some of the most creative and almost whimsical themes that would make great song titles as well. The only one on your list that I have read has been "The Lucky Heart" but many of the others I do have my TBR.

  20. These are so great! I definitely think Echoes Between Us would be an amazing song!

  21. You're so right—a good title is a good title, and it lends itself to songs, books, whatever. I really enjoyed your list this week! Lies & Lullabies is such a great title.
