This week’s Top Ten Tuesday – sponsored by The Broke and the Bookish – is a bit unusual. And that’s because the list below is (gasp!) not books. The theme this week is all about music and books. There were a couple of different suggestions, but I decided to go with “songs I wish were books.” This is actually a cool prompt, and I might try to turn it into a creative writing exercise (because I’m supposed to be working on a short story collection as my grad school thesis and haven’t started at all).
Anyway, here are the top ten songs I wish were books:
- Ship to Wreck – Florence and the Machine
- River Lea – Adele
- Strange Birds – Birdy
- I See Fire – Ed Sheeran
- Glory and Gore – Lorde
- My Beloved Monster – Eels
- Things We Lost in the Fire – Bastille
- The Beacon – A Fine Frenzy
- Where I Stood – Missy Higgins
- The One That Got Away – The Civil Wars
Wow, that was difficult! It actually took me a long time to come up with songs beyond the first five. These are in no particular order, but they’re definitely songs that inspire me, and ones I like to listen to while writing. And, since I didn’t explain them (because how do you even do that), I made a playlist! Just click the link to listen.
And let me know what songs you wish were books in the comments – I would love to hear your suggestions!
