Top Ten Songs That Tell Stories

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is an audio freebie.  It was difficult for me to narrow down my focus–should I do favorite albums?  Favorite podcasts?  Something more themed?

In the end, I decided to center this week’s list around songs that tell stories.  I know that almost every song tells a story in some way.  I could EASILY write a paragraph about each song and why I love it–about the characters, the plot, the writing… but I’m going to let the songs speak for themselves.  Hope you enjoy!

1.) Cleopatra by The Lumineers

2.) Josh McBride by The Head and the Heart

3.) In Memoriam by The Oh Hellos

4.) Pretty Voice by Cloud Cult

5.) When We Were Young by Adele

6.) Garden by Noah Gunderson

7.) February Seven by The Avett Brothers

8.) The Story by Brandi Carlile

9.) If I Ever Leave This World Alive by Flogging Molly

10.) Holes by Passenger

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly link-up hosted at The Broke and the Bookish

    I love this post it is completely different from all the other TTT ideas I have seen this week. Music is magical and powerful. I recommend the song Laura by Bat for Lashes, it is another song that tells a beautiful story.

      Thank you so much, Michelle! Music tells stories that engages your senses and imagination in ways that books and movies don’t, which is so so cool. I will definitely check out the Bat for Lashes song! Thanks for the recommendation! 🙂
