It’s the Book Blogger Love-A-Thon, hosted by Alexa & Katelyn!
I LOVE playlists. And making playlists for books? How about a big HELL YEAH.
I was trying to figure out what book to make a playlist for and I was like, there can only be one that will fit ALL OF MY FEELINGS in a book AND in music form. And the answer to that? JUST ONE DAY by the one and only Gayle Forman.
1. “Time Above the Earth” – The Kooks
Then I get off the plane
A thousand thoughts reaching through my brain
Like, Am I here beneath you, at all
Will I see her again?
If I do, will I feel the same?
And am I really here, at all
2. “Holiday” – Vampire Weekend
So if I wait for a holiday
Could it stop my fear?
To go away on a summer’s day
Never seemed so clear
3. “Simple Girl” – Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.
She’s a simple girl
and she’s got simple feelings.
No one ever let her know that she could get it out her heart, now.
4. “I’ll Believe in Anything” – Wolf Parade
Give me your eyes
I need sunshine
Give me your eyes
I need sunshine
and your ghost
5. “If She Wants Me” – Belle and Sebastian
If I could do just one near perfect thing I’d be happy
They’d write it on my grave, or when they scattered
On second thoughts I’d rather hang about and be there with my best friend
If she wants me
6. “Une Annee Sans Lumiere” – Arcade Fire
Okay so I don’t actually know most of them, but it’s one of the only songs I have in my iTunes library that has French in it 🙂
7. “My Mirror Speaks” – Death Cab for Cutie
I always fall in love with an open door
With a horizon on an endless sea
As I look around the ones who were standing right in front of me
8. “Basket Case” – Sara Bareilles
You’re beggin’ for the truth
So I’m sayin’ it to you
I’ve been saving your place
And what good does it do?
Now I’m just a basket case
9. “Light Outside” – Wakey!Wakey!
I know you wanna stay in bed
But it’s light outside
It’s light outside
So know I’m gonna stay right here
You saved my life once
10. “Kill” – Jimmy Eat World
Could it be that everything goes ’round by chance?
Or only one way that it was always meant to be
You kill me, you always know the perfect thing to say (hey hey, hey hey)
I know what I should do, but I just can’t walk away
11. “Closer” – The Fold
He should’ve held her closer,
When it was all he had to do.
When it was all he had to prove
To all his closest friends that she was a bright and beaming light.
A beacon in the night.
I rest on a vision of the shoreline glistening,
The two of us in love.
12. “My Father the Sailor” – The Robbery
Give me an endless summer
And the chance to find myself
Give me the guts to leave here
For the start of something else
13. “I Will Wait” – Mumford and Sons
So break my step
You forgave and I won’t forget
Know what we’ve seen
And him with less
Now in some way
Shake the excess
But I will wait, I will wait for you…

This was FABULOUS. I just discovered WakeyWakey and The Robbery from you. And love them. We have similarly awesome taste I guess!
This makes me like the book and be intrigued – but I do like your music or do I like the book?! Ahhh!
YAY I’m so glad you liked it and you found some new music 🙂 Always love to hear it!!!
Wow! Awesome playlist! I love Kill by Jimmy Eat World 🙂 I’ve not read Just One Day (yet) and now it looks like I’m going to have to 🙂
Thanks so much!!! It’s such a great book. I really hope you love it!! Have you read anything else by Gayle Forman??
I am reading this right now so I really enjoyed your playlist. I’m going to bookmark your list so that when I finish it I can listen again.
Thanks so much!!! Hope you enjoy! 🙂
Good golly I need to read this book SO BAD! I LOVE all of the songs you have listed for it (some were new but I will definitely be checking them out!).
Prepare for some major fangirling: EEEEEP Just One Day! I am so completely in love with that book <3 I actually had a hard time coming up with a song for Allyson and Willem to add to my list, but all of these are just amazing. LOVE The Kooks (I saw them live in concert last year, they were amazing! I've seen Sara Bareilles once as well.) I also freaking adore Vampire Weekend, Mumford & Sons, Death Cab and sometimes Jimmy Eat World and I am definitely going to listen to all of these soon <3 Definitely my favorite playlist of the day!
YAYYYY sounds like you have great taste in music LOL! I saw the Kooks last year too (in Chicago) – It was amazing!! So glad you enjoyed the playlist! I had such a blast making it 🙂 Thanks so much for fangirling! I love it!!!
You have the best taste in music, great picks!
