Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Brokeandbookish. This week’s theme is a freebie theme about music. I don’t know why, but, while I searched songs for that topic, I ended up with an awful lot of EMOTIONAL songs, so I guess that’ll be my topic. Listen to all of these, if you don’t know them, and please, cry with me. I’ll provide you tissues, and we can write emotional books to go with these together, after, if those inspire you !
1 • James Bay, Let it Go
THAT song. I first heard it on The Royals (this show is CRAZY, btw), and I fell in love with it. I can pretty much imagine a sob story or something contemporary and sweet about, well, letting go.
2 • Taylor Swift, All too Well
THIS is my favorite song of all times, I think. Because it tells a story. And I’m always feeling a bit unsatisfied when I listen to it, because I would love to read that story. Maybe I should WRITE it?
3 • You Me At Six, Fireworks
Okay, confession time: that song has been, for years, my to-go song to get inspired to write. I just feel like it’s so powerful, and expresses so many feelings…I don’t know, but I’m pretty sure if it were a book, I would cry over it for days.
4 • Ellie Goulding, I know you care
I feel like this post is going to be full of sad songs, and let me apologize. BUT this song is so beautiful, and I mean, sorry about the video, but, Ross and Rachel…I cried. I would read the book for that song, and it would break my heart.
5 • Ed Sheeran, Photograph
For that beautiful song, I think I would see a story about childhood, maybe about childhood love -my favorite trope, sorry-, about memories, past and present colliding…That would be a good contemporary story!
6 • The Veronicas, Revenge is sweeter than you ever were
I don’t know if any of you guys know those amazing Australian twins. They’re my favorite singers, I think, and I just love all of her songs. Somehow, with this topic, I picked out this one, because, who doesn’t love a sweet revenge story? .
7 • Sia, Alive
I really like Sia’s songs, I think they are very powerful, and I’m pretty amazed by all the dance moves in her video clips. I have no idea why, but with that song, I would perfectly imagine a kind of dystopian story….
8 • Jimmy Eat World, Hear You Me
Okay, I found out about that song on A Cinderella Story movie, with Hillary Duff. I’m not even sorry. I just love that song so, so much, and I would imagine a story about going away, or about finding who you are, a coming of age story.
9 • All Time Low, Remembering Sunday
I just found out that song, again, and I just remembered how much I LOVED it. Raw emotions, crazy lyrics, I don’t know, but I feel like if this song were a book, it would be one I LOVE.
10 • Ron Pope, In my bones
This song is absolutely beautiful, and if you don’t know about it, well you should listen to it. It’s filled with emotions, and…well, I guess I’m loving when there are EMOTIONS, okay?.
