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

Lotr

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

Weride

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

Nosleep

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

Never

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

Houseof

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

RedRising

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

Practical

The Martian, Andy Weir – Space Oddity by David Bowie

Martian

Dracula, Bram Stoker  – Lust for Life, Iggy Pop

Dracula

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! 🙂

  3. Barb @ Booker T's Farm

    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!
