“It’s All Coming Back to Me Now” — Celine Dion (1996)
Written by Jim Steinman, this power ballad explores the dark side of romantic love. While several artists have recorded versions of the song, Celine Dion’s cover is perhaps the most famous. According to Steinman, the song was inspired by Emily Brontë’s 1847 novel Wuthering Heights and combines passion and romance with death. Far from the dark melancholy of Steinman’s vision, TikTok users are celebrating the song by dramatically lip-syncing, with some even enlisting friends and family to help them stage a production.

A sped-up version of Tom Odell’s debut single has taken TikTok by storm — so much so that in 2022 the song returned to the charts! TikTokers have been using the sound for a variety of videos, with everything from lip-syncing to reminiscing about the TV show The Vampire Diaries, which featured the song.

How many of us are familiar with the iconic line “Shawty had them apple bottom jeans”? Flo Rida’s debut single received the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Hip-Hop Song and hit the coveted number 1 spot in Billboard’s Hot 100, so it’s unsurprising that it has retained its popularity to this day. Delve into the sound on TikTok, and you’ll find users dancing to the song, as well as a range of funny content and meme-style videos.

“Wuthering Heights” — Kate Bush (1978)
Kate Bush’s debut hit is perhaps one of the best-known examples of a song based on a novel, again inspired by Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights. The song has reached a new generation, partially thanks to the inclusion of her 1985 hit “Running Up That Hill” in Stranger Things, which drove younger users to discover more Kate Bush hits. Users are employing the haunting sound for a range of videos, with some praising the fact that Bush wrote the song in the space of a few hours, aged just 18!
