I've Got A Playlist For Ya'll


I am both happy and sad at the same right now. Happy that I have successfully brought this book tour to everyone and sad that this tour ends today. I am forever thankful to Ms. Karen Hattrup for supporting me with this tour and for her never ending replies on my inquiries, and to my tour participants: JM, Carmel, Karla, Raphael, Inah and Jeddidiah, for helping me spread the love for Frannie and Tru.

On this last day of the tour, I'm ending it with a playlist post. Half of the playlist's songs are mentioned in the book and the rest is what I have listened to when I was reading Frannie and Tru.

Note: You may get spoiled by the songs and what's behind them but where's the fun in not getting spoiled, right? I guarantee you that if you'll get spoiled, at least, by these songs, it's totally worth it. Especially if it's your jam!


You Can't Always Get What You Want by Rolling Stones • I'm on Fire by Bruce Springsteen • Bad by U2

These are the songs Frannie and Tru listened to in the car. Wherever they go, it's either Rolling Stones, U2 or Bruce Springsteen. As I remember, when Frannie's parents is with them, Tru always chose Bruce. Maybe because it's his mother's favorite. But if I were on their car? I'd choose U2, of course.

Lola by The Kinks • Heatwave by Martha Reeves and The Vandellas

I don't remember what the boys (in the story) played during their battle of the bands and didn't listened to either of these songs but! When Ms. Karen told me these were the songs they played that time, I re-read that part and OH GOD. HOW COULD I HAVE MISSED THIS PART? Well, it sucks to be me.
Young and Free by Sucre • Is This How You Feel by The Preatures • You Know Me by Air Traffic Controller • Won't You Come Over by Devendra Banhart • All Those Friendly People by Funeral Suits
The rest of the songs, as I mentioned, were my picks when I was reading Frannie and Tru. The titles may be a little objective to you but it is subjective to me during that time. All Those Friendly People fits to the last two chapters of the book, it explains a lot especially coming from Frannie's new friends through Tru, and since the book portrays race, class and gender. I admit that not all readers fall for Frannie and Tru, well, that's true to most books, pretty subjective. But if you'll read more or read between the lines, it's really poetic. I'm sticking to that, as I've said on my review.

When I listened to Is This How You Feel, I imagined it's Frannie with the boys. The song conforms to them and to their friendship and feelings.

Of course, I would not leave you with all the burden searching for those songs, it's all in here! I made a Spotify playlist just for you. ðŸ’›



And that's it! The end of Frannie and Tru book tour but it's not yet the end for everyone! Frannie and Tru comes out on May 31st, 2016 and I encourage everyone to grab a copy.

You can purchase Frannie and Tru at
Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Book Depository and Local Bookseller.

I hope you relish listening the playlist and I wish you a cheerful summer!

Let's leave it up to this quote from Emily Brontë: "And from the midst of cheerless gloom I passed to bright unclouded day."

  1. Ooh, I've never heard of Frannie and Tru! I SHALL HAVE TO LOOK IT UP! I also haven't ever listened to any of these songs. Shame on me. xD But I've heard of a lot of these bands. *nods*

    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!
