Five days! Release day is getting ever closer. Today I’ll be giving a bit more insight on the ‘Latte Girl’ playlist, and explaining why I chose to include each track. You can find the playlist here.
I’ve included the lyric from each song that I feel most connects with the novel, as well as the scene or aspect of the story it best applies to.
Here we go!
Help I’m Alive- Metric
‘If my life is mine, what shouldn’t I do?’
I think this song fits well with the theme of doing what feels right for you even when it’s terrifying
Coffee- Sylvan Esso
‘Wild winter, warm coffee’
I mean, it is called ‘Coffee’, ha ha. I think this is a very cozy cafe jam, but it’s also a bit sultry, which suits 'Latte Girl' perfectly
Karma Police- Radiohead
‘I’ve given all I can, it’s not enough’
Jordan’s jam when he’s forced to sell his soul to the family company
‘I’m sorry I could not freeze time’
Another sultry cafe jam, also filled with the kind of longing and regret present in parts of the book
The Love You’re Given- Jack Garrett
‘If you won’t take the love you’re given, then at least let me go’
Hailey’s song for when she challenges Jordan to change
Till Sunrise- Gold Room
‘That night I wished for you to stay until sunrise’
For the ‘Casa Del Jordan’ chapter *eyebrow waggle*
Waiting- City and Colour
‘So say goodbye to love and hold your head up high’
When Hailey and Jordan are all angsty and sad
Reminder- Mumford and Sons
‘So I watched the world tear us apart, a stoic mind and a bleeding heart’
Jordan definitely has this on a ‘Sad Songs’ playlist
Little Lion Man- Mumford and Sons
‘I really fucked it up this time, didn’t I my dear?’
Basically Jordan’s theme song on his mission for redemption
Do You Love Me Still? – The Kooks
‘I need your heart beating next to my heart’
If the chapter ‘Puzzling’ had a theme song for itself, this would be it
She Is- The Fray
‘She is everything I need that I never knew I wanted’
I think this suits the theme of Jordan and Hailey building each other up into better people ready to go after what they want
You and Me- Disclosure ft. Eliza Doolittle (Flume Remix)
‘It’s gonna be everything you ever dreamed’
This is totally one of Hailey and Jordan’s sexy time jams, and what I would have playing during the credits if their story were a movie.
'Latte Girl' is available for pre-order here!
