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
