Music for reading

Here are book-themed songs in honor of my terrific new iPod nano! There are bound to be more diligent list-compilers than I who can come up with more/better songs. If you are one of them, email me at events [at] brooklinebooksmith [dot] com for inclusion in a later post. In no particular order:

Three writers coming to the Booksmith who also happen to be rock stars: James Greer (with Guided by Voices), Damon Krukowski (with Galaxie 500) and Willy Vlautin (with Richmond Fontaine).

Here's Margaret Atwood playin' the theremin.

Rick Moody singin' backup.

"Life and How to Live It" by R.E.M.

"Let's Write a Book" by Field Music

"The Book of Right On" by Joanna Newsom (whom I'm so stoked to see at the Wilbur tomorrow!)

"Couches in Alleys" by Jack Kerouac (as performed by Jay Farrar and Ben Gibbard

"The Book of Love" by the Magnetic Fields

Rainer Maria

The Shipping News
