This is the Perfect Book Lover’s Playlist

These songs about books, stories, words, and basically all things literary are perfect for you book fiends. Some are poppy, some are artsy. Some are slow, some are fiery. We’ve got deep cuts, and radio jams. We’ve got it all, now give this playlist a listen!

 

1. “The Book Of Love,” The Monotones

 

2. “Ramble On,” Led Zeppelin

 

 

Do you hear those “Lord of the Rings” shout-outs? Believe it or not, this was Gollum’s debut in the pop music world (as far as we know).

 

3. “Here’s Where The Story Ends,” The Sundays

 

 

4. “When I Write The Book,” Rockpile

 

 

5. “The Murder Mystery,” The Velvet Underground

 

 

6. “White Rabbit,” Jefferson Airplane

 

Oh, how this song has changed a generation’s impression of Lewis Carroll’s Wonderland. It takes on a darker hue when Jefferson Airplane is the soundtrack.

 

7. “Tell Me A Tale,” Michael Kiwanuka

 

It sounds like Otis Redding, but, no, it’s Michael Kiwanuka, who’s song “Love & Hate” is the theme for “Big Little Lies.”

 

8. “Librarian,” My Morning Jacket

 

9. “Bookends Theme,” Simon & Garfunkel

 

10. “The Book Of Love,” The Magnetic Fields
