Today I thought I would talk about three books that perfectly illustrate this to me. I haven't read any of them, but I do have two of them on my giant TBR list.
The first is a historical romance - Dukes to the Left of Me, Prince to the Right by Keiran Kramer. From the very first time I heard this title I found myself singing the next line of the song - Stuck in the Middle with You! Kramer's titles are very obviously plays on pop culture references with the first book in her series titles When Harry Met Molly, this book being the second, and the third being Cloudy With a Chance of Marriage. I am sure that the fourth title in the series has some connotation as well but I can't think of what it is meant to be at this time of the morning. The title is If You Give a Girl a Viscount.
The second example is two books from a completely different genre - Neuromancer by William McBride and Hold Me Closer, Necromancer by Lish McBride, with the second being a much more obvious play on words for the Elton John song Tiny Dancer.
To be honest, I have no idea how the title relates to the subject of the book (although I really hope that it isn't in the most obvious connotation) but every time I see the book mentioned I start singing.
I have borrowed this one from the library but had to return it unread. One of these days I will borrow it again. I actually am not sure whether I will like it or not because I wasn't a huge fan of her first novel but I love the idea of it enough to give her another go.
Can you think of other song titles that make you want to sing? I would love to hear of some other examples!
