Top Ten Tuesday: Book Titles That Would Make Great Song Titles

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

I listen to many different types of music: R&B, rap, folk, rock, and more. I could see many of these titles creating wonderful songs in all sorts of different genres. Which musical genres would you put them into?

1. Temple of a Thousand Faces by John Shors

2. Crooked Little Heart by Anne Lamott

3. Hello, I Love You by Katie M. Stout

4. The Rattle-Rat by Janwillem van de Wetering

5. The Noise of Infinite Longing by Luisita López Torregrosa

9. The Day Lincoln Was Shot by Jim Bishop

10. The Song of Kahunsha by Anosh Irani

  1. I think these titles would definitely fit a wide range of genres 😃 I can see some punk, some alternative, some pop, some eclectic sounds… I would definitely give some of these a listen! Lol great list, Lydia 🙂

  2. These would all be such fun song titles! I can see The Bagel Sandwich Bang being a fun pop-punk song, and The Noise of Infinite Longing would be such a nice indie song, like I can already hear someone like Bon Iver singing it 🙂

  3. Excellent thought-provoking titles. Temple of a Thousand Faces for something epic. Crooked Little Heart for something sad but also funny. The Noise of Infinite Longing and I Know This Much when pining for love.

  4. The Bagel Sandwich Bang?! *laughs forever* However did you find out about that one?

    The Day Lincoln Was Shot sounds like Lumineers song, and Crooked Little Hearts makes me think of Tori Amos. Great choices, as per usual!

  5. Cool picks! “Crooked Little Heart” by Anne Lamott is giving me a Paramore vibe. The Bagel Sandwich Bang’s music video would probably go viral.

  6. Temple of a Thousand Faces would make a great title. Would have been one for David Bowie.

    I have also read I know this much is true, brilliant book as anything by href=””>Wally Lamb/a>. I’ll check out your review. Alwyas nice to talk about books we read.

    Thanks for visiting my TTT earlier.

    By the way, the link you left, doesn’t work.

    • Thanks for letting me know. I feel like the link I left on your last TTT post didn’t work either? (Or maybe I’ve mixed you up with someone else?) Either way, I’ll do my best to get to the bottom of it.

      I’m glad you liked I Know This Much Is True.
