Here's the thing. I love music. A lot. I probably know more lyrics and songs than I know books and authors. That's not bragging, by the way, that's just stating a fact. A sometimes annoying fact, because, honestly, who wants to have that much information clogging their brain? Except on those occasions when I can annoy other people with said information, which is gratifying as hell (teehee!), but that's not the point here. The point is that I know a lot of songs. Which gets me to books.
Authors sometimes do something incredibly awesome, which is to use song titles or lyrics as titles for their books. I usually love to see book titles being song-related, because it makes me feel like a smart cookie - thumbs up for self-esteem! - and I can say "Hey, I know that song".
- I sing the title in my head, I don't just read it like I would a regular text. If I make the connection between the title and the "correct" song, I sing the title in my head.
- Sometimes, I get an earworm because of it. Which is annoying as hell. I am one of those poor, unfortunate
soulspeople that wake up with an earworm already there. (This could also be fate's way of punishing me for my very limited attention span).
Anyway, sometimes I end up adding those books on my TBR, because I must know why that song and why that lyric. I'm curious that way.
How about you? Are you attracted to books that have song-inspired titles?
