The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Have you read it or seen the movie? I just read it yesterday and while there are a handful of really amazing books about coming of age that I may have liked better, what I especially liked about this book was the music mix called “One Winter” that the main character made. So moody and spot-on. I’m pretty sure I made a half-dozen  mixes exactly like this with similar titles when I was a freshman:

* Asleep – The Smiths * Vapour Trail – Ride * Scarborough Fair – Simon & Garfunkle * A Whiter Shade of Pale – Procol Harum * Time of No Reply – Nick Drake * Dear Prudence – The Beatles * Gypsy – Suzanne Vega * Nights in White Satin – The Moody Blues * Daydream – The Smashing Pumpkins * Dusk – Genesis * MLK – U2 * Blackbird – The Beatles * Landslide – Fleetwood Mac * Asleep – The Smiths
