Holden Caulfield's Literary Mixtape

Quote:
If you’ve ever wondered what your favorite literary characters might be listening to while they save the world/contemplate existence/get into trouble, or hallucinated a soundtrack to go along with your favorite novels, well, us too. But wonder no more! Welcome to the first installment of a new feature on Flavorwire, where we sneak a look at the hypothetical iPods of some of literature’s most interesting characters. What would be on the personal playlists of Holden Caulfield or Elizabeth Bennett, Huck Finn or Harry Potter, Tintin or Humbert Humbert? Something revealing, we bet. Or at least something danceable. Read on for a cozy reading soundtrack, character study, or yet another way to emulate your favorite literary hero.

Songs that make you go, huh?

Hi there! I'm new babbler and in a search for new music stumbled across What Are You Listening To. My playlist has been rejuvenated...thanks!

On a related topic, I've been thinking about music that influences generations. I was introduced to a song called Internationale at a play this week which had audience members over the age of 50 up on their feet singing along...a young filly, a couple decades their junior, I was woefully naive...had no idea what the song was! It got me thinking...I can't think of a song that would get me up on my feet singing with that kind of passion...
