Vote for Your Favourite Song Based on a Book or Poem

Every year, for Book Week Scotland, we ask the public to weigh in and cast their votes, and 2017 is no exception! This year, we want to sing the praises of the best songs based on a book, short story or poem. We've whittled down the possibilities to a shortlist of 40 - cast your vote to see if your choice will make the top ten! The songs that collect the most votes will be revealed during Book Week Scotland. Don't delay!

How to vote: click on the song you want to vote for, then scroll to the bottom of the page and press the "vote" button. You may vote for as many songs as you like.

Voting closes Tuesday 28 November at 5pm.
