Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke & The Bookish. Each week they release a Top Ten List and invite everyone to join in and make their own Top Ten List.
Singers & songwriters always say that their songs are written by certain moments in their life. Sometimes its obvious the story they are trying to share with us, sometime it’s not, but there’s always a story behind the song.
This week I have chosen some of the songs that feature stories that I really wish I could know more about and that I think would make great books. I ran out of songs at around 7, so its more like my Top Seven really.
I would love a story based on this song. It sounds like it would make an awesome romance, this guy refusing to move and ending up on the news is like the ultimate romantic gesture!
I LOVE the beginning of this song. It’s like this guys dad is preparing him to lead all these ‘broken, beaten and damned’ people. Sounds like the start of some great fantasy/dystopian trilogy.
I love a good soldier story, and the story featured in this song is beautiful and in my opinion would make such an emotion and powerful read.
I feel like this would make one of those great ‘healing stories’ and with a little bit of romance mixed in as ‘the man of her dreams comes along, picks her up and puts her on his shoulder.’
You can’t have a lit about song stories and not feature Taylor Swift! This song is brilliant, along with the music video, and it would make such a fun story!
Yes, another Taylor Swift song, but again, this song could not Not make the list. I know its basically the story of Romeo & Juliet, but I would really love another modern retelling. I really do love the whole forbidden love thing.
Tragic but beautiful, I was sobbing at these lyrics. I would be such a emotional mess if this was made into a book, but it would be amazing!
