The Literary Juke Box

I just made this online mixtape of songs inspired by classic books for a cool writer pal of mine.
I have to say, it took me longer than expected and it was a pretty interesting experiment.
Some song inspirations are more obvious than others.
Can you guess which book/author goes with which song?

1.”Soma” by The Strokes

2. “We Are The Dead” by David Bowie

3. “Wuthering Heights” by Kate Bush

4. “Billy Budd” by Morrissey

5. “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” by Elton John

6. “Ramble On” by Led Zeppelin

7. “Animal Farm” by The Kinks

8. “Venus in Furs” by The Velvet Underground & Nico

9. “Riki Tiki Tavi” by Donovan

10. “The Crystal Ship” by The Doors

11. “Ulysses” by Franz Ferdinand

12. “Tomorrow Never Knows” by The Beatles
