YAA Soundtrack: The Piper's Son

By Noelle

If you scroll through my favorite books on Goodreads, chances are I have a soundtrack for them on my iPod.  For any other playlist aficionados out there who enjoy making and listening to book-themed soundtracks, you've come to the right place!  We will occasionally be posting links to playlists from my personal soundtrack collection. 

Oh, The Piper's Son. One of my favorite books of all time.  Let's just say I've redone this playlist at least 15 times in the past year.  Lots of family songs.  Lots of second chances songs.  Lots of going home songs.  Yearning, desperate, hopeful songs? Oh, and a few bad life decision songs. I will try not to edit this playlist 15 more times this year but I can't make any promises when there's a Mackee involved.

In the meantime, you can listen to the playlist on Grooveshark. Here's the tracklisting with any liner notes if necessary:

1. Ho Hey - The Lumineers: You may say this is overplayed (the curse of the year old playlist strikes again!) but is it if you pretend it's about Tom Mackee? IS IT?
2. Home - Daughter: "I was drunk again, causing accidents. Oh, you're not a friend, you're nothing."
3. Between the Bars - Elliott Smith: Fathers & sons, part one.
4. Little Black Submarines - The Black Keys: Totally didn't drunk dial you, Tara.  I don't know what you're talking about.
5. The Rat - The Walkmen
6. Hold On - Alabama Shakes: Just so you know, in my mental Mackee movie this is the point where Tom moves in with Georgie.
7. Heart - Oberhofer
8. Cape Canaveral - Conor Oberst: Fathers & Sons, part two. Families! Grief! Ag!
9. Sleep All Summer - St. Vincent and the National: You didn't think I'd ignore Georgie (and Sam) did you?  (Although this works for Tom and Tara too.)
10. Under Mountain, Under Ground - The Lighthouse and the Whaler
11. Little Talks - Of Monsters and Men: Sure this too might be overplayed but find me a more perfect Georgie and Sam song I DARE YOU.
12. Take Me Home - Perfume Genius
13. It All Starts Now - Foreign Slippers: Because I need to end things happy for my favorite characters---even on their playlists!
14. Adventures in Solitude - The New Pornographers: "We thought we lost you.  Welcome back."

As always, thanks for listening!
