Top Ten Songs I Wish Were Books


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's Top Ten Tuesday asks bloggers to choose a music and books related theme. I decided to share my top ten songs I wish were books. The following songs are songs I would pick for a contemporary book playlist.

S O N G S   I   W I S H   W E R E   B O O K S 

1. Photograph by Ed Sheeran
2. Fight Song by Rachel Platten
3. All of Me by John Legend
4. Apologize by Timbaland and OneRepublic
5. King and Lionheart by Of Monsters and Men
6. Lovesong by The Cure
7. When It Rains by Paramore
8. From Where You Are by Lifehouse
9. Be Still My Heart by The Postal Service
10. Need You Now by Lady Antebellum 



What songs do you want to see turned into books? What will your playlist look like?

  1. Three cheers for "Fight Song" and the Paramore and Lady Antebellum mention. I've heard lots about Ed's music but alas, I've not listened to it. :)

  3. I love this compilation - it definitely boasts some amazing songs that I could see being turned into novels (if I hope, perhaps it will happen someday :P). The first three tracks on your list are all so good, and I'm really happy to see Of Monsters and Men and Paramore on there - such an excellent selection.

    I also love the fact you put a Spotify playlist in for good measure - I attempted to do this, but only had half a list because Taylor Swift's music isn't on Spotify so decided against it. Will be playing your compilation as I scroll through blogs this morning - thanks! :)

    1. I am glad you like the compilation. I figured the Spotify playlist will be helpful for those who wanted to listen to the songs or for those who wanted to save the playlists for future listening.

      I know some other artists do not have their songs on Spotify just like Taylor Swift.

  13. Yay! A playlist! I ended up doing that because, um, I had way more than ten songs. ;) I made like 11-12 playlists. Haha.

    Fight Song, All of Me, Apologize, Lovesong and Need You Now would be great! I like Rachel Platten, Paramore, Lifehouse, The Postal Service too.

  14. I'm always so inspired by Photograph when I listen to it! I'm actually trying to write a novel right now that ties in a little bit with it. :) Oooh and I would also love to see Need You Now as a novel! Great post :D
