Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme where every Tuesday we look at a particular topic for discussion and use various (or more to the point ten) bookish examples to demonstrate that particular topic.  Top Ten Tuesday (created and hosted by  The Broke and Bookish) is now being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and future week’s topics can be found here.  This week’s topic :

Book Titles that Would Make Great Song Titles

So, I went with a light hearted take for this week’s theme pairing up books with actual songs that in some way seem to fit.  I’m not great on lyrics so I’m not seriously trying to find songs that fit the books, more just overall first impressions for theme songs:

Lord of the Rings, JRR Tolkien – I Would Walk 500 Miles by the Proclaimers


We Ride the Storm, Devin Madson – Riders on the Storm by the Doors


No Sleep Till Doomsday, Laurence MacNaughton – No Sleep Till Brooklyn by the Beastie Boys


Never Die, Rob J Hayes – can’t help thinking of 007 coupled with Die Another Day by Madonna\


House of Glass, Susan Fletcher – Blondie’s Heart of Glass


Red Rising, Pierce Brown – Fight the Power by Public Enemy


Practical Magic, Alice Hoffman – I put a Spell on You by Nina Simone


The Martian, Andy Weir – Space Oddity by David Bowie


Dracula, Bram Stoker  – Lust for Life, Iggy Pop


Life After Life, Kate Atkinson – Time Is On My Side by The Rolling Stones

Life After

    I think both the titles as song titles and the way you tackled this theme would work, especially with Ride the Storm and No Sleep til Doomsday 😀

      Haha – yes, I really liked the No Sleep one was funny.

    I loved how you paired the titles of actual songs with the books you chose! Very neat! 🙂

    These are perfect. Yes, I Would Walk is the best choice for Lord of the Rings. I’m also going to be singing No Sleep Til Brooklyn all day!
