My Throwback 90s Music Soundtrack

Making this list was really hard to do. The struggle was hard! I couldn’t limit myself to just 10 songs like my other soundtracks, but at least I didn’t exceed 15. I’m a Gen X gal and thinking up this list brought back a lot of nostalgia.

“Hunger Strike” by Temple of the Dog
Soundgaurdern and Pearl Jam together. Bliss.

Harry Potter & the Chamber of Secrets

Here’s another book soundtrack for you all. I’ve been rereading Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, and with that I’ve thought of making a little soundtrack from my music collection.

Black Dove by #ToriAmos

(๐ŸŽง “They don’t know that you’ve already lived on the other side of the Galaxy” ๐ŸŽง) Such a magical song. Love Tori Amos too. ๐Ÿ’—

A Dashing Through the Snow Book & Road Trip Soundtrack

Dashing Through the Snow Debbie Macomber

Dashing Through the Snow & A Road Trip Soundtrack

I’m currently reading Dashing Through the Snow by Debbie Macomber. So far the main characters have been on a Road Trip. And that had me thinking of some go-to music for Road Trips.

Welcome to my Road Trip Songs for this book.

Free Ride & Dazed and Confused

Free Ride by Edgar Winter. Scene in the movie Dazed and Confused (1993). (There’s also the song Slow Ride by Foghat, and same movie – ending scene.

You Could Be Mine & The Terminator

You Could Be Mine by Guns N’ Poses… ย I mean, Guns N’ Roses.ย But not just because of the band or song. I picked thisย song because of the Terminator. The song is in 2 of the movies.

(My favorite video)…
Terminator 4: Salvation (John hot-wires a “Moto-Terminator”.)

Letters From Home Soundtrack

With most books that I read, I like to listen to music in the background. And also, some books just reminds me of songs or music genres.

When I was reading Millie’s Fling by Jill Mansell, I created a British theme soundtrack. It was fun doing that, and even helped me get in the Brit-Lit mood.

Letters From Home

Now I’m reading a historical fiction book. I don’t often read historical fiction, and I’ve noticed that the ones I’ve read lately have turned out to be gems (The Book Thief being the cut above – read this year).

Letters From Home by Kristina McMorris is becoming one of those gems. I’m over 30% into the story and I’m really liking it. I don’t want to stop reading it, but I have to in order to get a move on with some pre-holiday-house-cleaning and let alone the daily stuff.

The Music Soundtrack for Letters From Home

Top Song (and quote)

Letters Home from the Garden of Stone by Everlast

A December 2007 single. It was offered for free from The song is from Love, War and The Ghost of Whitey Ford album.

Please forgive me, Morgan pleaded, eyes raised upward. It was then, in the numbing silence, when he finally dared wonder: Were prayers of murderers, when fighting on the โ€œright sideโ€ of the war, ever heardโ€” let alone answered?

British Invasion


When I’m in the mood, I love some British Fiction and Music mix. I have a couple of favorites and I think the first British Fiction that I read was Bridget Jones’s Diary. And of course the first Brit Music was The Beatles with my parents singing to me Michelle.


I am currently reading Millie’s Fling by Jill Mansell. It’s going alright. I’ve read a couple of Jill’s books before so I am used to her humor.

I just couldn’t help make a little soundtrack playlist on my iTunes.

So here’s the Top Songs that I thought best fits this book…
