Songs that made me think of my OTP | Top Ten Tuesday


Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted by The Broke and the BookishThis week is all about music & books. This is such a hard subject for me because I mostly listen to the same songs all the time. To be honest, I think I wrote this post three times. 

I figured out why: I finished Frozen Tides yesterday and can't think of anything but Magnus and Cleo, bookwise. I'll still try to change my mind with Me Before You (I'll think the result will be the same, ha-ha). Funny story, when I started this series, I thought I wouldn't get too involved. But I need the fifth book now. I don't care that it'll probably be released in December, I want it now. Is it too early to preorder?

Anyway, because of that, I choose to do a post about some of my favourite songs that make me song of Magneo, OTP of all the OTPs at the moment. I'm going with seven songs and am totally cheating, but the number seven is for perfection, so it's totally appropriate. When I'm explaining, I'm trying to be vague, because spoilers for people who haven't read this series yet. And should. I think I'm too involved into this. 

1. Listen to Your Heart // DHT
Listen to your heart
when he's calling for you.
Listen to your heart
there's nothing else you can do.
I don't know where you're going
and I don't know why,
but listen to your heart
before you tell him goodbye.
Why? Because of all the denial, since they're supposed to hate each other.

2. You Found Me // The Fray
Lost and insecure
You found me, you found me
Lyin' on the floor
Surrounded, surrounded
Why'd you have to wait?
Where were you? Where were you?
Just a little late
You found me, you found me
Why? Um what about the ending of the first book? Because poor Cleo, she totally needed someone to confort her. 

3. 4 Real // Avril Lavigne
And I just wanted you to knowI don't wanna look backCause I know that we haveSomething the past could never change.And I'm stuck in the momentAnd my heart is openTell me that you feel the same 
Why? Um the past is a serious problem in the first book, because of a murder Magnus committed. But Cleo is healing from the enormous wound and now they can be together. 

4. The Devil's Tears // Angus and Julia Stone
He said, "I am the devil, boy, come with meAnd we'll make many storms"He offered me the universeBut inside my heart there's a picture of a girlSome call love a curse, some call love a thiefShe's my homeAnd she's as much apart for this broken heartBut see broken bones always seem to mend
Why? The devil is obviously King Gaius, Magnus' father, who tried to kill Cleo on several occasions but he's failing, haha.

5. Safe and Sound // Taylor Swift (ft. The Civil Wars)
Just close your eyes
The sun is going down
You'll be alright
No one can hurt you now
Come morning light
You and I'll be safe and sound
Why? Because they're in an insecure world where everyone is murdered/tortured/wounded. But in a scene they found a little peace. Can it be like that all the time?

6. Demons // Imagine Dragons
When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide
Don’t get too close
It’s dark inside
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide
Why? Magnus did some horrible things and Cleo totally gets it. Even though she tried to stay away, like the song said, she started believing in him, and it's beautiful.

7. Let Her Go // Passenger
You see her when you close your eyes
Maybe one day you'll understand why
Everything you touch surely dies
But you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Why? I'm thinking of some events in Frozen Tides, tbh.  

Which songs remind you of your favourite books/OTPs?

  3. Really?? I just finished Me Before You and right now, they're my OTP <3
    It's been a while since I've read Falling Kingdoms, and I haven't gone onto read the other books, so I'm pretty hazy on Magnus and Cleo, but I I love your picks - I like pretty much all the songs on your list~

    1. I totally understand! I shipped them so much askbsigjzrg. However, I have like zero interest in reading After You, do you plan on reading it?
      Yeah, Magnus and Cleo are basically NOTP in the first book because of what happened. But in the third book, I was starting to ship them and now I'm too excited because of the fourth book, I don't want to wait until December to see what happens next :)

  4. I love the spin you put on this week's TTT focussing the songs around Magnus and Cleo - very clever!! For me, I think Safe and Sound is definitely a major song for me that always makes me think of my OTP's - a troublesome path to be together, but it's all okay in the end. *voms at self*

    Here's my TTT if you have a spare moment to check it out :) (no obligations, of course!!)

    1. Thank you, I couldn't get them out of my head... Too many feels! I love it when it's really difficult for OTP to get together, but I don't like unnecessary drama :)

  5. Such a good idea! Both Safe and Sound and Demons make me think of some of my OTPs as well!
