I have. I not only think it’s fun, it sometimes spurs the muse. I say sometimes because there is one song title that I think would make for an interesting story. Maybe a YA romance, but I’ve yet to concoct a story to go behind it.
That song is “Frog Kissing.
And yes, I know that kind of dates me, but not really, since I learned this song because it was in my father’s collection.
But anyway, I think this song title would make for a cute book title. Just have to figure out a story to go with it.
I actually think there are a lot of song titles or songs that could and should inspire some full-fledged stories, more than the few that have done that.
“The Gambler,” “Coward of the County,” and “Convoy” I know were made into movies, but I’m not talking movies; I’m talking books, novels even. And I got to wondering if any other writers felt the same way.
Have any of you been inspired by a song? Have any of you used a song title as working title for your work in progress?
I can answer yes to both of those, since I have been. My one song title/working title is “On The Wings of Love,” which of course lends itself real well to a romance novel.
Now, can any of you name a song title that inspired a story of yours?
Happy writing everyone J!
