Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Songs I Wish Were Books

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week you need to pair up a song with a book. I did have some difficulties compiling this list but here we go:

1. Jolene by Dolly Parton

I love this song and I like the cover by the White Stripes even more! You can check out the White Stripes version here. It would make a sad story but I would still love to read it!

2. Never Stop – Safetysuit

Youtube link with lyrics here. You could probably use this song as a theme song for many books out there already.

3. Live Forever – Black Box Revelation

I love this song, and it makes me so proud to be a Belgian. Please, check this one out if you don't know it already! Clip here. And a book contemplating what it means to live forever? You can't tell me that doesn't sound awesome!

4. Halo – BeyoncĂ©

Another romantic song, but it's Beyoncé, so I don't really need to say more, do I?

5. Feeling Good – Nina Simone and Sinnerman – Nina Simone

I couldn't choose between my two favourite Nina Simone songs!

7. Move the Mountain – Stratovarius

I don't remember where I heard this song for the first time, but I still love to listen to this one every now and then, youtube link here.

8. Can’t Pretend – Tom Odell

Another potentially sad book, but I think it would make for a great read! Link here.

9. Falling Slowly – Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova from the Once soundtrack

This is my favourite song from the movie and I believe it would make a fantastic book! This song is just heartbreakingly beautiful! Link here.

10. X-Men First Class Soundtrack: Magneto

This would make a fantastic book about a villain! I would definitely read that! Link here.

Which song do you wish were books? Do you know any of the songs I picked? Let me know down below!


  1. I hadn't heard the White Stripes cover of Jolene. Super cool!

    1. It's an incredibly awesome song! Thank you for stopping by!

  2. I like Move the Mountain. And I've at least heard of Jolene--I can see how it would make a book. Here’s my TTT.

    1. Nice to know I'm not the only one who knows Move the Mountain! Thank you for stopping by!

  3. Jolene and Halo -- sounds good to me! Some solid choices here. I hadn't heard the cover of Jolene, either. Good stuff. :)

  4. Jolene would be an awesome book! I agree with you about the Magneto song from that soundtrack as well. :)

    Check out my TTT and my current giveaway.

  5. I've seen Halo show up on a couple other lists this week - I will have to look it up :) My TTT

    1. Yes, you should! Thank you for stopping by!
