TTT: Songs That Inspire Us


The ladies of The Broke and the Bookish challenged us to think about music & books for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday.  I think this week’s challenge was perfect for Kelly & Lauren as they are aspiring writers and I know music will play a role in their writing. We decided to pick songs that inspire us, which is even more challenging for me since I am not a writer.  I don’t usually think about the story behind a song nor ever been inspired to write, but I think I did alright.

  1. Monster, Nothing Left to Say and Midnight City are beautiful and really inspiring, but I loved Melissa’s playlist as a whole! Fiction is one of my favorites songs/dances, and although Wedding Dress isn’t my favorite, Taeyang is pretty cool. Linkin Park is one of my favorite bands, and I had long periods of time where I really enjoyed You and I and Angel With a Shotgun. Great picks!

  2. James Bay is really popular today! I need to listen to him. I can definitely see a story in Youth of a Nation. I love that you picked Midnight City and The District Sleeps Alone Tonight, those are such good songs. I love Runaway by Aurora.

    I had no idea how many songs were titled Monster until today, haha. I love Hwllo, Dance With The Devil and My Demons. 🙂 I picked a Theory of A Deadman song for my post. And a Breaking Benjamin one. And an Imagine Dragons one…Lol.

    Ghost and Wings! ❤ I love the Linkin Park songs.

    Nice songs!

    Since I couldn't just think of ten songs, I thought of "basic book" subjects and then listed songs that would fit the book for TTT. 🙂

    Here is my TTT
