Songs That Remind Me Of Books

I’m not going to lie, I had some great fun creating this post and I’m hoping I’m not the only one who gets reminded of books from listening to songs! Some of the below are songs from the film adaptations of books, whereas others are just simply random!

Let me know if any of these resonate with you too, or if there are any other songs that remind you of books too!

Fleetwood Mac – Dreams

After reading and falling in love with Daisy Jones, I found a playlist on Apple Music that featured all the songs mentioned in the book.

One that really sticks to mind is Dreams by Fleetwood Mac. Every time I listen to this song, it takes me back to the day I read the book and makes me feel like Daisy Jones herself.

Kate Bush – Wuthering Heights

OK, this is an obvious one but every single time I hear this song I just have to belt out “HEATHCLIFFE, IT’S ME, YOUR CATHY, I’VE COME HOME”. You agree right?

This song literally makes me think of the blustering hills of the Moores in October. All the Gothic feels, I love it.

Lana Del Rey – Young & Beautiful

This song makes me instantly makes me think of Daisy and Gatsby. The film adaptation of The Great Gatsby is one of my favourite film adaptations. I wasn’t that much of a fan when it first came out, but since then, I have started to fall more in love with the film and especially the music.

I’m a big fan of Lana Del Rey anyway but this song has to be my favourite because of how it makes me feel.

Muse – Supermassive Black Hole

This song. That baseball scene. The line ‘my monkey boy’.

This song instantly brings back the memories of being OBSESSED with the first Twilight film and the books back when I was a teenager and when every TV programme, teenage book and film seemed to be somehow about/related to vampires.

The Stone Roses – She Bangs The Drum

When I was in high school, I had a cool English teacher who we studied Romeo & Juliet with. She was one of those really eccentric teachers whose classes were so different to the other classes I had. She always made them fun and I always looked forward to her class. She introduced She Bangs The Drum to us when we were reading about Romeo’s unrequited love for Rosaline.

I had no idea who The Stone Roses were but ever since then, I can’t listen to this song without thinking back to that particular class!

So there we have it! Do any of these songs remind you of any other books or do you relate other songs to the books above. I would love to know so please feel free to let me know what you think!

  1. This is a cool post! I have a blog post coming up soon on songs which are about books 😀
    Supermassive Black Hole is great, I’m not sure that it reminds me of any books though.
