Books & Music - Lady Gaga's The Fame

If you've been around here for any length of time then you know that I love music. I've always got something playing, no matter what I'm doing. So this idea has been floating around in my mind for a long time!

I've chosen an album and for that album, I must name a book I think fits each song. If you have any albums that you want me to do this with, let me know below!

So we are going to start with a pop album that I loved back in the day. I played this album nonstop for a solid year and to this day I still love it.

What album am I talking about? Well, none other than Lady Gaga's The Fame!

I created an album playlist if you want to listen while reading or I linked each track if you'd rather listen that way. Either way, I hope you enjoy this!

1) Just Dance 

Just dance, gonna be okay, da da doo-doo-mmm
Just dance, spin that record, babe, da da doo-doo-mmm
Just dance, gonna be okay, d-d-d-dance
Dance, dance, just, j-j-just dance

Lily is forced to take dance lessons and she's not happy about it but she comes to like dancing and it helps her relax when she just lets go and dances.

2) LoveGame

I wanna kiss you
But if I do then I might miss you, babe
It's complicated and stupid
Got my ass squeezed by sexy cupid
Guess he wants to play, wants to play
A lovegame, a lovegame.

Hannah and Garret decide to use each other to help the other out. He needs a good grade and she wants her crush to notice her. Little do they know they are entering a love game where the outcome may not be what either of them thought. 

3) Paparazzi  

I'll be a girl backstage at your show
Velvet ropes and guitars
Yeah 'cause you're my
Rockstar in between the sets
Eyeliner and cigarettes

Shawn is a famous singer who needs to hide himself until the police can catch his stalker. He never signed up to be hiding a collage but he also never thought he'd fall for Dakota either. Will she end up backstage after all this shows cheering him on? 

4) Poker Face

Can't read my
Can't read my
No he can't read my poker face
(She's got me like nobody)
Can't read my
Can't read my
No he can't read my poker face

I will just leave this quote here asI think it fits. 

“I don’t check any particular box. I’ve never caught feelings for anyone because they were a male or a female. I feel for people because of who they are. Not what they are.”

5) Eh, Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say)

There's nothing else I can say
(Eh, eh) I wish you never looked at me that way
(Eh, eh) There's nothing else I can say

In the very beginning our MC discovers that her boyfriend of forever is cheating on her.... the rest is history.

6) Beautiful, Dirty, Rich

We just like to party, like to p-p-party yeah
Bang bang, we're beautiful and dirty rich

If you know anything about this series then you know these Blue Bloods love to live it up, Mimi the most. She's rich and hot, what else do you need on the Upper East Side? 

7) The Fame

I can't help myself
I'm addicted to a life of material
It's some kind of joke
I'm obsessively opposed to the typical
All we care about is
Runway models, Cadillacs and liquor bottles
Give me something, I wanna be
Retro glamor, Hollywood, yes we live for the fame

Sound like Blair to anyone? Sure seems to fit the bill in my opinion.

8) Money Honey

When you touch me it's so delicious
That's money, honey
Baby, when you tear me to pieces
That's money, honey

I mean New Moon really fits here I think. When he leaves her and such.

9) Starstruck 

Baby, now that we're alone, got a request
Would you make me number one on your playlist?

This fits this book so perfectly that it was like they were made for each other! All Darcy wants is to have Tom all to herself and to finally be number one in his life. 

10) Boys Boys Boys

Boys boys boys
We like boys in cars
Boys boys boys
Buy us drinks in bars
Boys boys boys
With hairspray and denim
Boys boys boys
We love them!

This whole book is about kissing as many boys as Zae and her friends can during spring break. So bring on the boys!

11) Paper Gangster 

A superwoman chick, you know that I am.

I mean does this fit anyone else better than Rose? She's a freaking badass!

12) Brown Eyes

Honey yeah, it's no surprise
I got lost in your brown eyes

I mean, just look those big brown eyes! 

13) I Like It Rough 

Your love is nothing I can't fight,
Can't sleep with the man who dims my shine.

This reminds me of a certain ship but no spoilers! If you're read this series tell me if you think it could fit. 

13) Summerboy

Yeah we're going nowhere fast
Maybe this time, I'll be yours you'll be mine

This fits a certain couple in the beginning... the one that never happened and never had a chance. 

So let me know what you thought of this. If you have an album you'd like me to do let me know below!
