Today, we are diving into S.E. Hinton coming of age novel, The Outsiders. Here’s some music for growing up!

Young Adult

Today we are discussing S.E. Hinton’s novel The Outsiders. This novel tells the story of the coming of age in America in the 1950s and ’60s. The playlist that was constructed is a more thematic than anything else, with period-appropriate music thrown in.


The songs, I wanted to highlight are “Dreams” by Fleetwood Mac, because it a good song, and “Young Americans” by David Bowie. These songs represent the hopes and dreams of the main characters.
