Top Ten Tuesday: Top 10 Songs I Wish Were Books


This week's Top Ten Tuesday is all about music and books. Below, I list the Top 10 songs that deserve to be book! 

10) 'All I Want' by Kodaline

Famous for being a part of The Fault in Our Stars soundtrack, this song speaks of heartbreak and loss. Because of the track's rollicking beat towards the end, I always imagine someone going on a journey to find their lost love. 

9) 'Someone New' by BANKS

Another heartbreaking song, the singer promises to come back to her former lover someday and pleads with him not to 'fall in love with someone new.' I think the premise of the book would be that a girl had to leave her boyfriend because of some trauma in her life and when she comes back for him, he has already moved on. 

8) 'Wildest Dreams' by Taylor Swift

I think any Taylor Swift song would make a good story (particularly a YA contemporary). This one about a fleeting love affair practically writes itself.

7) 'Speechless' by Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga says this song is about her troubled relationship with her father so I could really see this song as a moving story about a father/daughter relationship.

6) 'Pretty Hurts' by Beyonce

An incredible song about the impossible quest for physical perfection, it would make a great story about a self-destructive beauty queen or actress. 

5) 'Love the Way You Lie' by Eminem feat. Rihanna

A song about an abusive relationship - it would be great as a book that tells the story of a couple falling in love and then chronicled the journey to their destructive relationship. Kind of like Gone Girl.

4) 'Like We Never Loved At All' by Faith Hill

One of my favorite break-up songs of all time, this would make a great novel. Plus, it's a country song so it's practically a short story in song form.

3) 'Say Something' by A Great Big World

Okay, I know I have a lot of sad songs on this list, but they would make the best stories! This one especially could spawn a multitude of different heartbreaking novels. 

2) 'Seven Devils' by Florence + the Machine

The one song on this list that could be turned into a fantasy novel. I imagine this song being adapted into a dark story of an evil sorceress conquering the world. 

1) 'Hello ' by Adele

Of course Adele had to make this list. The first time I heard this song, I cried like a baby. There's just so much emotion in her voice! This song would make one heart-wrenching book. It would have to be an epic love story, like Gone with the Wind or Love in the Time of Cholera.
