Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

This week's theme is all about books and music.  My theme is... Top Ten tragic songs I wish were books!
All videos are chronological by year the song was released!

Tell Laura I Love Her by Ray Peterson (1960)

Teen Angel by Mark Dinning (1960)

Are You Lonesome Tonight by Elvis Presley (1960)

Last Kiss by J Frank Wilson and the Cavaliers (1964)

Leader of the Pack by The Shangri-Las (1964)

Somebody to Love by Queen (1976)

Time After Time by Cyndi Lauper (1983)

Tears in Heaven by Eric Clapton (1991)

Quick Fade by Feeder (2002)

I'm Lost Without You by Blink 182 (2003)

Mercy Falls (Full Album) by Seventh Wonder (2008)


  1. Not sure I've heard any of these songs in full. Either way, this week's topic was really fun - I like imagining some of my favorite songs as novels. :)

  2. A few years ago I went to a Cyndi Lauper concert where she played the entire She's So Unusual album in order and talked about each song. Despite sounding tragic, the story behind Time After Time wasn't as grim as it seemed!

  3. Ah, finally songs I know and remember. I am in agreement about many of your choices like Tears in Heaven. Good choices.

  4. I love it! Great selection this week. :)

  5. Great selection of songs! I love how you included Time After Time and Somebody to Love.

  6. You have some fantastic songs on your list. I adore Time After Time and Somebody To Love. Great choices!

  7. Great list! Queen had some awesome songs... and Elvis! Nice pick. :)

  8. I love your choices! Tears in Heaven never fails to make me cry. I also love a bit of Queen and Cyndi Lauper.
