Dead Spots Playlist

A few disclaimers: first, every song on this list corresponds to a scene or a moment in the book, but I’m not telling which is which. (They’re more or less chronological, though, so if you’re really motivated you should be able to figure it out.) Secondly, these songs are chosen from my personal iTunes library, and I would never claim to have excellent taste in music or be knowledgeable about it in any real or professional way. A serious music appreciator might be able to come up with a much more perfect and complete soundtrack, but this is mine. When I go back and re-read sections of the book, these are the songs that play in my head.
