Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!


And don't forget!

and...
and Paris to the Past and...
All Kinds of Kisses!
And it's international!


Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

Great songs. I love older-everyone-knows-the-words-to-the-song-so-sing-along ones you picked.

What a great list! You've got some classics on there that actually really helped me get a sense of the books (since I haven't read many of the ones you included). Nice job! :)

DJL said...

Oh, most definitely with Pollyanna! I love other songs on your list, too, though I haven't read all of your books. I trust you to know the best music choice for them. :)

Hollie said...

I'm not familiar with all the books you've mentioned, but I completely agree with the choices of those that I am. Especially Pollyanna - what a great song to choose for it!

Thanks for stopping by! :)

Awesome! You've got some great ones here! This is one of the first lists I've seen where I actually know most of the songs AND most of the books. I especially like the idea of "Feelin' Groovy" and "Oh, the Places You'll Go." And The Good Earth with "I Will Survive"- ha! Brilliant.

Zo said...

I love the feelin' groovy/oh the places you'll go one. Perfect!

Loved You are my Sunshine, I Will Survive, and Respect. Great songs.

Thanks for visiting my Top Ten.

I saw so many lists this morning where I didn't recognize a single song! Eek!

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz said...

The song title can be a nice summary statement for these books, I think.

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz said...

Yep, "Feelin' Groovy" and Places You'll Go!

Anne Bennett said...

Deb, your song collection cracks me up! Your songs really appeal to me and my memories. Kinks, Peter/Paul/Mary, Simon/Garfunkul, Beatles. Love it. I'm with you, most of the lists contain songs and artists I haven't even heard of before. What a fun topic for the Top Ten. Thanks for visiting my blog.

I haven't read that many of the books on your list, but I absolutely love the pairing of Feeling Groovy and Oh, The Places You'll Go. It is just perfect.

You did really great! My memory just fails me when it comes to songs :)

Thanks for stopping by!
