Top 10 Tuesday — Song Titles

10 Nov

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday challenge is a fun one — pick book titles that would make great song titles. Song titles and book titles have so much in common. They both are catchy and easy to remember and capture the essence of the book/song in one phrase. Song titles usually come from a line in the lyrics. Book titles often do the same thing — it’s fun when you come across the reference while reading. This week I went to my shelves for inspiration and found some books residing there that reference real songs for their titles, so I included some of those as well. Hope you find a book to love.

    Great list! I can definitely imagine the ones that aren’t already song titles as some nice ballads but also upbeat pop tunes! And of course, I immediately started singing “you’re the one that I want! oo, oo, ooo” 😂

    I kind of hate when the title of a book I’m reading is also the title of a song because then I can’t get the song out of my head! LOL.

    Happy TTT!

    Cold as Ice has me thinking of Britney Spears and Paula Abdul. Both have catchy songs with Ice in the title.

    I almost made it through the first part of your list without getting any songs stuck in my head, but now Grease is blaring out loud and clear! Wonderful choices this week.
