Top FOUR Tuesday: Songs that Remind Me of Books

Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic from The Broke and the Bookish is actually a freebie-- so I decided to go with ---

Top Four Songs that Remind Me Of Books!

I love finding songs that make me think of novels, and it's something I try and add to my reviews when I can. I wish I could figure out songs for more novels than I do, but sometimes it's a bit difficult. However, today, I'm going to share some songs that remind me of books (some of these have been on the blog before - in the book review- while others are songs I have yet to share).

Yeah, I know, it's Top Ten Tuesday...but I'm running late and I could only get four songs posted, so enjoy my random Top Four Post!

1. Chasing Windmills by Catherine Ryan Hyde

Song: "Weird" by Hanson

2. Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson

Song: "Dear Friend" by Stacie Orrico

3. The Suicide Shop by Jean Teulé

Song: "Worst Case Scenario" by The Hoosiers

4. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling

Song: "Don't Speak" by No Doubt (to explain, I see this as Ginny's song, in regards to Harry, at the end of the novel)

Interesting list. I've never thought of comparing songs to books. I'd have to really think hard to come up with a list for myself.

I can kind of see Ginny with No Speak there, but that was definitely a connection that took me a moment.

i am the worst at play lists and all that when it comes to books. I never can relate songs. I am just not that creative!

Natalie (Mindful Musings) said...

I love "Don't Speak!" It's such a great song. :)

Maja (The Nocturnal Library) said...

Yaay, I LOVE Don't Speak for Ginny and Harry, it's such an excellent choice. I actually haven't read any of these other ones. *runs away in shame* but I do like the songs.

Erika said...

Yes to # 4 - because I love Harry Potter and No Doubt! :D

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

oh love the list and how you put them towards books. I wouldn't have thought about Don't Speak and Ginny!

So creative!

GABY said...

Interesting, I wouldn't have thought about Don't Speak but I can't see Ginny singing it

Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird said...

LOVE your Harry Potter pick!

Have you noticed that some authors have actual soundtracks to go with their books? Stephenie Meyer does it and I LOVE that.

Medeia Sharif said...

Interesting post. I've never paired songs with books.

I like The Hoosiers song.

Interesting. I've actually read two books lately (one being a Jodi Picoult) in which a CD came with the book, the idea being certain songs accompanied certain chapters. Not sure if I like the idea (I only listened to the CD's afterwards) or thought it too much of a gimmick.

I don't know the other songs, except for the "Don't Speak" reference. Now I'm going to start making myself think about related songs when I'm reading books... I really like this idea, especially since you could listen to the song after you've finished a good book that you don't want to end yet :)
