So I recently published a playlist on 8tracks that included some of the music described in Rainbow Rowell’s Eleanor & Park. FABULOUS book by the way. If you haven’t already read my review you can click here if you would like. I highly recommend this book!
Anyway, onto the music. This novel referenced some amazing music from the 80’s as well as some earlier classics. Growing up with a dad who practically raised my sisters and I on 80’s music, I did recognize some artists and songs, but not all. Once I sat down and listened to all the music I hadn’t already heard, I fell in love with it and had to make a playlist!
So here is the track list. I hope you enjoy!
- Love Will Tear Us Apart: The Joy Division
- 867-5309/Jenny: Tommy Tutone
- How Soon Is Now?: The Smiths
- The Summer of ’69: Bryan Adams
- Bad: U2
