Top Ten Tuesday (2-28-12)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week, 
they post a different topic, and you get to create your own top ten list. So, this week's 
topic is:

Books I'd Give a Theme Song To (And Which Song It Would Be)

1) The Devil Wears Prada - You're So Vain by Carly Simon (for Miranda Priestly ... because she is so vain!)

2) Jane Eyre - On My Own from Les Miserables (I feel like this song should be played when Jane is leaving Thornfield. It's too perfect!)

3) A Summer Affair - Summer Wind by Frank Sinatra (just because this book is all about summer, which makes me automatically think of this song.)

4) Maine - Landslide by Fleetwood Mac (with the three generations of women narrating this story, I think this is the most fitting song. It resonates with each woman in some way.)

5) True Colors - True Colors by Phil Collins (so it may not seem very original, but it fits so well for these sisters, who don't realize how special they each are.)

6) Tabloid City - New York, New York by Frank Sinatra (obviously, a book about what happens in 24 hours in NYC. Is there any other song that is as appropriate as this one?)

7) The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo - Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You) by Kelly Clarkson - I know that Lisbeth would probably hate this song since it's so pop and not her, but it makes me think of her! 

Well, that's all that I could come up with for this week. That was a tough topic, but fun! So, what books would you give a theme song to? Let me know!
