Between Blog Tour: Guest Post

I'm thrilled to be part of  the blog tour for Jessica Warman's Between, and Jessica kindly took the time to write a guest post. So I shall hand you over so she can tell you all about Liz's running playlist...

Liz’s running playlist

One thing that I think is cool about this playlist is that, to me at least, it’s real. Like Liz, I’m a distance runner, and when I was working on BETWEEN I would start every day with a long run in an attempt to get inside her head. During those runs, I listened to all of these songs, and I imagined Liz listening to them, too. Each of them speaks to her emotions in some way; listening to them allowed me to sort of slip into her character and better understand what she was going through in the months leading up to her death. It’s all sort of meta, when you stop to think about it! So here it is – Liz’s playlist, which was also my playlist, and all the songs that helped me to discover her story.

1. Karma Police – Radiohead
2. Viva La Vida – Coldplay
3. I Just Don’t Think I’ll Ever Get Over You – Colin Hay
4. Last Good Day of The Year – Costeau
5. The Killing Moon – Echo and the Bunnymen
6. Over My Head – The Fray
7. Ripple – Grateful Dead
8. Such Great Heights – Iron & Wine
9. Cathedrals – Jump Little Children
10. Everybody’s Changing – Keane
11. The Cave – Mumford and Sons
12. All the Right Moves – OneRepublic
13. Put Your Lights On – Santana
14. Run, Baby Run – Sheryl Crow
15. Superstar – Sonic Youth
16. Guitar and Video Games – Sunny Day Real Estate
17. Save Me – Aimee Mann

Thanks Jessica!

I'll be posting my review for Between tomorrow - so please do stop by for that -  and the next stop on the tour is with Jenny at Wondrous Reads on Monday.

Eek! I know precisely three of those songs! :/ Some new music is clearly in order for me!

Fab playlist! I have quite a few of those on my own playlists already, and might need to add some others. Great post!
