Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted by The Broke and The Bookish, and feature lists related to all things bookish–characters, authors, titles, and favorites. They’re an excellent way to find new interesting books on a variety of topics, and to find bloggers that love the books you do.
Check out their blog for their top ten and lists of other bloggers who participate!
February 16: This week is all about music & books. We previously did books we’d give theme songs to so feel free to do that! Or 10 songs I wish that were books.
Those are both interesting, so I want it all! 🙂
Top Five Books I’d Give Theme Songs
1. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy; Douglas Adams. The opening song on the more recent movie made me smile–this book needs a funny, bouncy theme song. I think the Barenaked Ladies could come up with a good one.
2. Breakout; Ann Aguirre. This one needs something like Thin Lizzy’s “Jailbreak.”
3. Six of Crows; Leigh Bardugo. This should be something instrumental, with crashing cords in some places, and soft and sneaky in others.
4. The Stainless Steel Rat; Harry Harrison. The Smashing Pumpkins “Bullet With Butterfly Wings” is appropriate for a variety of reasons.
5. Winter; Marissa Meyer. We need a song out there with lyrics about cyborg cinderellas, genetically altered wolf soldiers, and rapunzels locked in a satellite, don’t we?
Top Five Songs I Wish Were Books
6. “The Devil Went Down to Georgia;” Charlie Daniels Band. It’s already a story, so it’d make a book easily enough, I think.
7. “If I had a Million Dollars;” Barenaked Ladies. This would make a goofy romance story, where a character suddenly wins a million dollars and tries to buy someone’s love with an ottoman.
8. Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds; The Beatles. It’d be trippy, for sure.
9. “O Fortuna” is a complaint against the cruelties of fate–which more than one book has been about. And all that instrumental excitement should translate to plenty of conflict!
10. “Shake It Off;” Taylor Swift. I picture this being one of those stories with a zany protagonist, funny, with a little romance–probably a mystery.
