Top Ten Tuesday | Songs I Wish Were Books

top ten tuesday 2

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:

  1. Ship to Wreck – Florence and the Machine
  2. River Lea – Adele
  3. Strange Birds – Birdy
  4. I See Fire – Ed Sheeran
  5. Glory and Gore – Lorde
  6. My Beloved Monster – Eels
  7. Things We Lost in the Fire – Bastille
  8. The Beacon – A Fine Frenzy
  9. Where I Stood – Missy Higgins
  10. 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!

  1. I had a hard time with this topic too, but in the end I managed to come up with 13 songs! “River Lea” by Adele is on my list; I could listen to that one over and over! And I can’t believe I forgot “I See Fire” by Ed Sheeran — that’s another one of my favorites.
