Character Playlist: Simon Spier
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda is a book I probably read about a year ago, and the movie just came out this weekend. The movie really hit it out of the park--it was entertaining and emotional and funny and so so necessary. And I want to see it again already! Nick Robinson portrays Simon's emotions so perfectly, and I promise you'll feel all the things if you see the movie.
In response to that, and even though I haven't written a playlist since January (oops), I thought it was time to write Simon his own playlist. So, without further ado, a playlist for Simon Spier.
"The Biggest Lie" by Elliott Smith
"Closer" by Tegan & Sara
"Electric Love" by BØRNS
"Bloom" by The Paper Kites
"Love Me" by The 1975
"Always" by Panic! At the Disco
"True Love Waits" by Radiohead
"Until We Get There" by Lucius
"First Time He Kissed a Boy" by Kadie Elder
"Like Gold" by Vance Joy
I tried to channel Simon's favorite music, so hopefully I did him (and Becky Albertalli) proud!
