WHEN BOOK QUOTES JUST AREN’T *GASP!* GOOD ENOUGH: SONG LYRICS

May 23, 2022 22 Comments

Hey, there! It’s another new week and another book list… only today… not so much! I put together a list of bookish (mostly) quotes not that long ago with our book list theme so today I’m breaking this rule. What I’m doing is looking at some of my most favorite songs, by pulling some lyrics. Some of them are favorite songs or lyrics that linger and others are lyrics that are newer. Either way… I thought this could be fun.

LIST | CUTE 4TH OF JULY FASHION IDEAS: ALL THE RED, WHITE AND BLUE!

Perhaps most appealing about this is that I can pull most of these lyrics from my Instagram page. Sure I still have to create things to fit a blog post and the proper dimensions and all that, but at least I have most of the lyrics already living on social media which at least makes the picking of the list easier. Also, I promise I do like happy songs too despite most of these being moodier. Speaking of that picking out, let’s get to that task and see our featured songs!

1: WITHOUT YOU, FOR KING AND COUNTRY

This is a sad, moody song, but it’s super meaningful when you know it’s about a man struggling through health issues. It’s also a debut from he and his wife, sharing their individual perspectives in fearing the “what ifs” while he goes through these challenges. Search For King and Country music on Amazon

2: LORD I NEED YOU (LYRICS, COVER BY CIMORELLI)

I adore this line (above) in this song because to me it should be part of what teaches us how to behave in life. I’m all for debate and disagreeing and discussion, but even at that, I don’t think society today allows for grace. Find the Cimorelli cover digitally on Amazon

3: THE SUN IS RISING, BRITT NICOLE

I used to listen to Britt Nicole ALL THE TIME back in the day. I heard this song again on a film I was re-watching and had to ask myself how I knew the song. Needless to say, I’ve had to revisit this one because of that reintroduction. Find digitally on Amazon

4: IN JESUS NAME, KATY NICHOLE

Found this song, randomly, on an Instagram Story during a time when it was needed. My mother and I even both cried while listening to it one Sunday afternoon. Find digitally on Amazon

5: GOD MADE GIRLS, RAELYNN

This song is just so wholesome and loving and charming. It’s an oldie, but I love it so much and how lovely it is. Shop digitally on Amazon

6: MADE FOR ME TO LOVE, RAELYNN

I could add more songs from country star Raelynn to this list because I bought her ‘Baytown’ album and really like it. I have my favorite songs, but overall, I love it. But I’ll limit myself to two. Find ‘Baytown’ on Amazon

7: I GET TO LOVE YOU, RUELLE

This song though… so pretty and beautiful and sweet. Love it so very much. Find the Lindsey Elm cover digitally on Amazon

8: MY GOD IS STILL THE SAME, SANCTUS REAL

Had this song on repeat for THE longest time. Don’t agree with everything in the lyrics, but overall, it’s a solid song. Find digitally on Amazon

9: GOLD RUSH, TAYLOR SWIFT

Weirdly there’s a lot of lyrics or lines in this song I don’t like. However, something about this song makes me hit the “repeat” button. I think it’s kind of “soothing.” Find digitally on Amazon Video

10: PAPER RINGS, TAYLOR SWIFT

This song is just so dang cute. We love it. Find digitally on Amazon Video

Your turn! Have you heard any of these songs? Do you like any? Would you listen to any on this list? Are any favorites? Or is it just me? Comment all the comments – or maybe better sound off below.

    Sometimes when I look back on my TTT lists I am so grateful I took the time to create them. I’m sure you’ll look back on this post with gratitude for the amount of time it took to create it and the snapshot in time in provides. My quotes

    • Rissi JC May 24, 2022 at 7:10 PM

      Most the time I look back at my older Top Ten posts and cringe. ;) I say thing because they were SUPER messy from the Blogger to WordPress move. Most I archived but if I’m ever in a jam, I suppose they could be re-written and published.

  • Mareli Thalwitzer May 24, 2022 at 2:27 AM

    I love your spin on this week’s theme and yes, sometimes good song lyrics can actually be better than quotes from books!

    Happy TTT!

      Right? Sometimes this is super true! :)

  • Lydia May 24, 2022 at 4:46 AM

    I wouldn’t have thought to quote song lyrics. Fun idea!

    • Rissi JC May 24, 2022 at 7:14 PM

      Thanks, Lydia. It was (mostly) fun. I had to make changes WAY too many times because I kept tweaking things. :D

  • Rae | HerSerialLife.com May 24, 2022 at 4:57 AM

    Amazing list! I love music and it’s definitely a great take on this week’s prompt. And your pick are really awesome. I’m going to have these lyrics stuck in my head all day long now ;)

    Have a great week :)

    • Rissi JC May 24, 2022 at 7:15 PM

      Uh-oh! Hope it’s not a bad thing to have the lyrics stuck in your head, Rae. ;)

  • Pam @ Read! Bake! Create! May 24, 2022 at 5:55 AM

    I love your twist on this week’s theme. I don’t think I’m familiar with any of the songs you shared, though I am familiar with Taylor Swift.

    Paper Rings is such a fun song!

    Nice twist! As a writer, music is my #1 inspiration and all it takes is one line or phrase to set the muse off.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!

    • Rissi JC May 24, 2022 at 7:26 PM

      I love music. Always have. And I hope I always will. :)

      Same! ‘Paper Rings’ is just dang cute. :)

  • Cindy Davis May 24, 2022 at 2:46 PM

    I LOVE this!! I was singing along, LOL. Have you heard Sunday Sermons by Anne Wilson? It is one I have been listening to on repeat lately.

      I have not! I’ll have to look that one up, Cindy – thanks! I love new song recommendations. :)

  • Greg May 24, 2022 at 2:51 PM

    These are nice. I love song lyrics (and song lyric lists) because it’s such a different way of writing and expressing things!

    • Rissi JC May 24, 2022 at 7:34 PM

      For sure! I agree. It is a different way to tell a story or express something. Always a fan of music so this was fun. :)
