• what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: stevie nicks wrote landslide in 1973 and she still sings it in 2016 and the line "i'm getting older too" just makes me emotional, i wonder if she now relates to the song in a very different way because she's sang it thousands of times over 43 years of her life with her former boyfriend almost always by her side

The Eleanor and Park Playlist

So I have compiled here a playlist of songs that I feel suit the novel Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell. Music is a big part of the book, it adds atmosphere to the story. And I love how music is one of the platforms used to build Eleanor and Park’s relationship.

So I’ve tried my best to get songs that fit in with that atmosphere. Some of these songs are even songs that Eleanor or Park might have listened to as they are set in the same time period or are artists that are mentioned in the book
