Top Ten Books I’d Give A Theme Song To
(and please tell us the song and why you’d pick it for the book!)
(Ooh, my 50th Top 10!) Oh jeez… this is a tough one… well, click on the song name for the Youtube video to hear my selections 🙂
- I’ve Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella –> Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen | Haha this was actually the first one I thought of! LOVE that catchy song!
- Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi –> Set Fire to the Rain by Adele | I love this song, and I felt it really fitting to Juliette & her story.
- Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins –> Complainte de la Butte by Rufus Wainwright | A French song from Moulin Rouge to accompany this romantic Parisian story.
- If I Stay by Gayle Forman –> If You Leave Me Now by Chicago | I’ve always loved this classic song by Chicago
- Delirium by Lauren Oliver –> Love Ain’t Here Anymore by Take That | I knew I wanted to use this song somewhere, and realized it’s perfect for this book! (Oh Take That.. my young boyband days!)
- The Help by Kathryn Stockett –> With a Little Help from my Friends by The Beatles | <3
- The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins –> Survivor by Destiny’s Child | I mean, the chorus is “I’m a survivor! I’m not gon’ give up!” [LAST MINUTE ADDITION: Thought of an equally good theme song: Stronger by Kelly Clarkson! “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger!”]
- Cinder by Marissa Meyer –> So Close by Jon Mclaughlin | A song from a fairytale movie re-telling (Enchanted) for this fairytale re-telling
- The Fault in Our Stars by John Green –> It Will Rain by Bruno Mars | His voice in this song kinda gives you that gut-wrenching, heart-breaking feeling that you have while reading TFiOS.
- The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern –> something/anything by Danny Elfman | How PERFECT would this pairing be?? Someone contact him to be part of the upcoming movie!
I actually had a lot of fun thinking of theme songs to these books… 😎
