Authors love to use mixtapes as plot devices, but as Slate’s Dee Lockett points out, they rarely share the actual tracklists. (“Even Nick Hornby’s High Fidelity, in which the main character is obsessed with mixtapes, doesn’t reveal a full tracklist.”)
So Lockett compiled Spotify playlists for those rare books (and movies) that practice full mixtape transparency. (There’s even a playlist for the Eleanor & Park mixtape that’s all Joy Division’s “Love Will Tear Us Apart” on loop.) Get your headphones out and enjoy.
