Michael J Seidlinger shared a playlist of YouTube videos for his novel falter Kingdom at Largehearted Boy.

"Hunter Warden, the protagonist of Falter Kingdom, loves a good unboxing video. The ASMR videos are just as addictive, often supplementing his ability to unwind from a long day a school, tune out the anxiety from the understanding that final exams are around the corner. Don't even get him started on the wealth of other content on YouTube. For this Book Notes feature, I wrestled with the idea of creating a playlist or giving you a sort of “most-frequented” containing Hunter’s go-to videos. Hunter does like music (I mean who the hell doesn't? Don't you ever trust a person who doesn't like music), and has been known to binge some Frank Ocean, but in the end, the addictive power of YouTube won me over. I hope this list does the same for you."

Jessica Anya Blau shared a music playlist for her novel The Trouble with Lexie at Largehearted Boy.

"Here are the songs mentioned in The Trouble with Lexie. It's a strange, seemingly-disjointed list, running from classical to ZZ Top. Then again, a lot of strange, seemingly-disjointed things happen to Lexie during her troublesome year."

Nina Stibbe shared a music playlist for her novel Paradise Lodge at Largehearted Boy.

"My novel Paradise Lodge is set in 1977. The protagonist, Lizzie is 15, a high-school drop out – like I was – and, like me, working at an old peoples’ home. Popular music features more than I had realised when writing it - a quick count finds 18 songs mentioned and even more artists and composers. This is less because Lizzie is pop obsessed, I think, and more because 1977 was a huge year in rock and pop history. And though the music mentioned is mostly easy-listening radio-soul, we also see the impact of punk rock as it barges into the folk of rural Leicestershire. We see how appealing a free lunchtime classical concert could be back then and towards the end there are renditions of - and dances to - various songs of the day - because that’s what we used to do in 1977.

The playlist below isn’t a list of songs you’ll find in the book - I thought that might be a bit dull - but it’s the same sort of kid on the same journey in the same year.

Back then kids like me recorded our music off the radio onto cassette tapes and therefore lived on a diet of ‘easy listening’ rock, pop and soul dished out by BBC Radio. It was fine but a bit sad that we were essentially listening to the same music as our parents - which certainly hadn’t been the case for them."
