I’m back with another playlist (my first playlist can be found here.)
To refresh: I put my Spotify on shuffle and associated a book, character, or ship with each song.
Behold the results.
“Femininity” by Laura Osnes
Lara Jean from To All the Boys I Loved Before
I wish I’d never heard of femininity
Well, love has its place, of course,
And I’d like my share,
But now and then I’d like to come up for air!
Between Peter’s “needs” and Josh’s insecurity, Lara Jean does a ton of emotional labor.
Oh, I forgot to mention she COPARENTS HER YOUNGER SIBLING.
Didn’t plan to start my morning mad at Mr. Covey, but here we are.
“Growing Pains” by Coin
Gael from The Romantics
Down on my luck
And looking for love
In all the wrong places
Going to bed
The girl in my head
What am I feeling now?
Gael vows to make his terrible rebound relationship work.
“This hippie girl seems super mean and way too into nachos. BY GEORGE, SHE IS MY TRUE LOVE.”
“Cold War” by Foreign Figures
The Bumped duology
Ask myself what I want more
Something lifeless or someone to adore
I’m so bored
Over worked up to the core
Need a tropical vacation
Not more medication
May our lives be as fabulous as gold
Like the pictures on our socials
Faking what we show
Did anyone else read this series?
It features faked pregnancies, loveless marriages, and religious fundamentalism.
You know, the basics.
“This Was a Home Once” by Bad Suns
And as one chapter ends another chapter begins
Now my life revolves around cliches I hated as a kid
My sister’s still young, I hate to see her face blue
Though we can’t control the rest one thing will always be true
This was a home once
Where we found our way, oh the golden days
This was a home once
Where my life begun, where life moves on
Leaving Bremerton meant accepting that my friendships wouldn’t carry over to my new life.
I think Ramona’s in the same spot.
“Tomorrow is a Latter Day” from The Book of Mormon
I am a latter day saint
Along with all my town
We always stick together come one more
We love to dance and shout
And let all the feelings out
And work to make a better latter day
Listen…this books has Mormons and feelings.
Show me a better fit.
“Someone to You” by Banners
Emily from Since You’ve Been Gone
I just wanna be somebody to someone, oh
I wanna be somebody to someone, oh
I never had nobody and no road home
I wanna be somebody to someone
Emily wants to be a fixture in her best friend Sloane’s life. (Oh, I know the feeling. VALIDATE ME.)
When Sloane disappears without a word, Emily’s self-worth crumbles, not helped by her parents falling into a creative coma and IGNORING HER ALL SUMMER.
I wrote this long enough ago that I’m itching for a round three.
Look forward to more music in the future.
