Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week, we'll make a list of our top ten something* and this week, it's a Top Ten Tuesday Freebie! We can choose whatever topic we would like. I wanted to be a little different, so for this week and I've chosen the Top Ten Songs That Remind Me Of Books I've Read.
I usually listen to my iPod when reading to drown out background noise or something, and funnily enough, it really helps me focus, so sometimes the songs I listen to while reading always remind of that book. Other times, the lyrics and music just make me think of books I've read.
*In no particular order.
1. Fireflies - Owl City
This song is amazing and I loved it when it was first released. At the time, I was reading the Vampire Academy series for the first time and this song was on repeat on my iPod the whole time I was reading Frostbite. It never fails to make me think of that book.
2. Hear Me - Imagine Dragons
I had this song on repeat when reading A Walk to Remember and it's so uncanny the way the lyrics match the story... I love this song!
3. Blinding - Florence + The Machine
I listened to this song a lot when reading Silence and Finale of the Hush, Hush sequence. The song was actually a part of the playlist for this series. It's a fantastic song to read to.
4. Hero/Heroine - Boys Like Girls
I loved this song so much and for some reason, it always makes me think of Harry Potter...
Not exactly sure why.
5. Feel So Close - Calvin Harris
This song always makes me think of The Vampire Diaries. More the show than the books, but who cares. Something about the music...
6. No Heroes Allowed - Mayday Parade
The Hunger Games. These lyrics just really match the story (from Peeta's POV) and I don't know, they just really do something for me. Seriously, look this song up on YouTube and you'll see what I mean.
7. Only If For A Night - Florence + The Machine
This song never fails to makes me think of the Evernight series by Claudia Gray. I think because I always listened to this song while I was reading those books and the lyrics match up with the story line a little... kind of.
8. Hurricane - Panic! At The Disco
This song just makes me think of the Fallen series by Lauren Kate. It's not so much that the lyrics match the story, though I suppose some lines can be compared to Daniel and Lucinda's relationship if you listen closely to the lyrics. Fallen fans, you'll see what I mean when you listen to it. ;)
Okay, that's all I can think of right now. I'm sure when I go to bed tonight, I'll be thinking to myself 'you're an idiot Melissa, you should have put this song on your list, dumb-ass.' Anyway, as always, leave me links to your TTT lists, I'm really interested in seeing what lists everyone chose for today! Thanks guys. :-)
