Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Songs That Should Be Novels

'Top Ten Tuesday' is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. I love making lists, so this feature fits me perfectly! If you also take part in this feature or have any additions to my lists, please get in touch; I'd love to hear from you!
Ten Songs That Should Be Novels

This week's Top Ten Tuesday list should be all about audio. I have to admit I've been thinking about trying out an audiobook sometime, but so far I haven't, so I didn't feel like focusing my TTT on that. Next to that, I did want a list that was in some way connected to books, so not just my favourite albums or something like that. I immediately thought of a list I made earlier this year, namely one focusing on songs that would make great novels. So, this week I'm just going to recycle that same list, because I love this topic and am really curious to hear some examples from others!

Be sure to share your own TTT's in the comments section below; I'd love to hear from you! 

1. 'If You Don't, Don't' - Jimmy Eat World

This is one of my favourite songs of all time. There's this special feel to it and I could imagine a whole story behind the song which would undoubtedly make a fantastic novel.

2. 'That Thing You Do' - Busted

I used to be absolutely crazy about Busted when I was a teenager. 'That Thing You Do' is a song that has always made me smile and I think it would make a lovely romantic novel as well.

3. 'I Want to Save You' - Something Corporate

Another song from my teenage years. This song used to make me cry and long for a boy that would be willing to 'save me'... Yes, those teenage years *sighs* However, still a great song and one that would also make a pretty good book, I think.

4. 'Already Gone' - Kelly Clarkson

This is a beautiful song and I think it would make a beautiful heart-breaking book as well.

5. 'Last Kiss' - Taylor Swift

I'm a big Taylor Swift fan and 'Last Kiss' continues to be one of my absolute favourite songs of hers. It really tugs at my heartstrings and I would be curious to read more about the story behind the song!

6. 'Falling in Love' - McFLY

Such a brilliant song; it's a song that always inspires me when I try to write myself, so it definitely deserved a spot on this week's top 10 list.

7. 'Nothing' - The Script

I think The Script is one of those bands whose songs could all be turned into a book with a captivating story. I've loved 'Nothing' since the first time I heard it which is why I picked this one.

8. 'You Belong With Me' - Taylor Swift

Yes, another Taylor Swift song, I couldn't help myself. As a big chick lit and romance fan, I don't think it should be a big surprise that I think this song would make a great book <3

9. 'Somewhere Only We Know' - Keane

This would make such a great book, no doubt about it.

10. 'Fix You' - Coldplay

I have to admit I'm not the biggest Coldplay fan, but I can't deny the beauty of this song and the fact that it would be the basis for a pretty amazing novel!
