Music Monday- Jekyll & Hyde

October is about opposites. It beginning of the autumn, the twilight of the year. The leaves fall down, yet many celebrations about bountiful harvests happen during October and November. To celebrate this dichotomy we’re discussing and comparing the noble Dr. Jekyll and the monstrous Mr. Hyde. Happy listening to the playlist below.

 

 

The songs, that I felt exemplified Jekyll and Hyde are “Hotel California”. I chose a cover of this famous song, to highlight the familiar, but to put you on edge, because Passengers cover is different than The Eagles version. Secondly, I chose “Oops… I Did It Again”, by Britney Spears for fun and because Jekyll does not want to transform in Hyde and vice versa.
