Book Titles that Remind Me of Songs

I love when books are titled after songs. Sometimes it's on purpose, like these:

Whenever I see those covers, I get The Beatles' "Across the Universe" and U2's "With or Without You" stuck in my head. This is no doubt done purposely, to give the prospective reader a taste of the novel's tone. I haven't read either of these books yet, though, so I can't say for sure.

But it's kind of funny when titles remind me of things the author and publisher cannot have anticipated. Like how this...

Reminds me of this...


  1. LOL! I tend to be reminded of songs, like when someone says I believe. I want to burst into a Tears for Fears song. :O)

  2. I was wondering if I was the only one who broke out into The Beatles when I heard the title Across the Universe. ;)

  3. Funny, we know the titles are songs also, but we don't get them stuck in our heads. :P

    Btw, if anyone wants to win a copy of Across the Universe, we're giving it away and tomorrow is the last day to enter!

  4. It's not quite the same thing, but I've developed this crazy connection in my head between Aussie author Kate Morton and Aussie singer Sarah Blasko, because I listened to the latter while reading the last book of the former. Whenever I hear one of Sarah Blasko's songs now, it takes me back to the world of Kate Morton's fiction!
