Catcher in the Mixtape

November 8, 2009 at 1:48 pm (Uncategorized)

So for our English project, a component is making something of a soundtrack for The Catcher In The Rye, so this is what I put together and I think it makes a lovely companion to the book.

1. “Basket Case” by Green Day (or Holden asks you if you have the time to listen to him whine.)

2. “Get Me Away From Here, I’m Dying” by Belle & Sebastian (or Holden wants to get away from here, he’s dying.)

3. “Daydreamer” by Adele (or Holden digresses constantly.)

4. “Dickhead” by Kate Nash (or Holden is beaten up by a dickhead named Stradlater.)

5. “All I Really Want” by Alanis Morissette (or all Holden really wants is to hunt the hunter with his people shooting hat.)

6. “No You Girls” by Franz Ferdinand (or Holden’s dancing with Bernice is a failure.)

7. “L.E.S. Artistes” by Santigold (or Holden likes walking the streets and being the rebel kid.)

8. “10 Dollar” by M.I.A. (or Sunny wants 10 dollar, not 5.)

9. “Blue Lips” by Regina Spektor (or the nuns depress Holden.)

10. “Everybody’s Changing” by Keane (or Holden refuses to enter the museum because he’s afraid he’s also changed. Also, Sally and Carl have changed and he can’t handle it.)

11. “Can’t Stand Losing You” by the Police (or Holden tries calling Jane and Sally but can’t get anything right.)

12. “Under Ice” by Kate Bush (or Holden visits the lagoon at Central Park and finds no ducks.)

13. “Please Sister” by the Cardigans (or Holden visits Phoebe.)

14. “Precious Things” by Tori Amos (or Holden can’t let go of anything.)

15. “The Circle Game” by Joni Mitchell (or Phoebe at the carousel.)
