This week's theme is all about books and music. So, here are ten songs that I wish were made into books!
(If you click on the song, it will bring you to a video of the song on YouTube.)
I am sure almost everybody knows about Halsey by now, but maybe I'm wrong. This song is one of my favorites. I honestly think that it would make for a pretty epic love story. It could even be about artists because of all the colors mentioned!
"Everything is bluehis pills, his hands, his jeansand now I'm covered in the colorspulled apart at the seamsand it's blueand it's blueEverything is grayhis hair, his smoke, his dreamsand now he's so devoid of colorhe don't know what it meansand he's blueand he's blue"
Hero is one of my all time favorite songs. I feel that it doesn't get enough love! The story could be about a hero who decides he doesn't want to be a hero anymore, which would make for a pretty interesting story.
"Let me goI don't wanna be your heroI don't be a big manI just wanna fly with everyone elseYour masqueradeI don't wanna be a part of your paradeEveryone deserves a chance toWalk with everyone else"
I remember the very first time that I heard this song and I immediately thought that this song would make an amazing book about Hollywood in general. I know I'd definitely read it!
"New to town with a made-up namein the Angel City chasing fortune and fameand the camera flashes make it look like a dream.You had it figured out since you were in schooleverybody loves pretty everybody loves coolso overnight you look like a '60's queenAnother name goes up in lights,like diamonds in the sky.And they'll tell you now you're the lucky one."
Imagine a book where a couple falls out of love and someone is trying to figure out how to break up with the other. I've never actually read a book like that! Romance novels are always about couples falling in love, instead of out of love. I'm kind of curious about a book that went the opposite way!
"Once we were like bottle rocketsNow I know I have to stop itPlease believe me, this isn't easyI just need to say Goodbye"
I don't know why but I get such a dark feeling from this song. I've been loving dark anime, so of course I'm in the mood for some dark books.
"Dig up the bones but leave the soul alone.Boy with a broken soul, heart with a gaping hole.Dark, twisted fantasyturned to reality.Kissing death and losing my breath."
I chose this song because I've never read a book about gangsters, or someone who is in love with a gangster.
"You say you a gangstathat don't impress me noneyou say you a gangstaain't seen a thing you doneI do it all myselfI ain't gettin' help from no one"
I think this song would make another awesome book about Hollywood.
"Static palms melt your vibe, midnight whisperingsThe black magic on Muhammad DriveSwimming pools under desert skiesDrinking white wine in the blushing lightJust another LA DevoteeThe sun sets on the evil eyeInvisible to the Hollywood ShrineAlways on the hunt for a little more timeJust another LA Devotee"
A book set in the '80's... do I have to say anything else?
"1985 was a good yearThe sky broke apart and you appearedDropped from the heavens, they called me a dreamerI won't lie, I knew you would belong hereLifted off the groundI took your hands and pulled you downBecause 1985 was a good yearI won't lie, I knew you would belong here"
I just love how catchy this song is and I love the message.
"He could be a sinner, or a gentlemanHe could be a preacher when your soul is damnedHe could be a lawyer on a witness standBut he'll never love you like I can, can"
I feel like this song would translate into a pretty awesome romance that takes place in the disco-era. LIKE COME ON, HOW AWESOME WOULD THAT BE??
"When there's loving in the airDon't fight it just keep breathingI can't help myself but stare.Double check for double meanings.I'm a man who's got very specific taste."
What songs do you wish were turned into books?
