Playlist: carry on, simon

This might sound completely insane, but…I feel like I haven’t flailed about Rainbow Rowell in a while? Anyway. I AM EXPERIENCING A RENAISSANCE. I still have all of my Carry On feels. Beneath this veneer of silence I am still actually complete trash.

Anyway. I made a dark magic/Baz/angsty wizard playlist (don’t laugh) on my Spotify an absolute age ago and I thought this might be time for all of my music feels to come to use. Because I HAVE A LOT OF FEELS WHEN IT COMES TO CARRY ON. I found it difficult to fit everyone’s stories into one playlist here — because playlist cohesion — so this is mostly a Simon and Baz one. And that is definitely not a gentle foreshadowing for more Carry On playlists… 😉

(Just to let you know, several of these songs contain swearing.)

  1. I saw the title and inwardly went: YESSSSSSSSSSSS. I know what I will be listening to while writing blogposts 😛 I don’t know all of these songs, but the ones I do know are PERFECT. Plus your playlist making skills are always on point so I’m sure the rest of the playlist will be perfect as well 😛 ALSO YES TO MORE CARRY ON PLAYLISTS MAKE THEM ALL

  2. A million yesses to Carry On!!!! See okay now I’m going to end up dropping everything to re read it, and I don’t have time for that. Okay no I’ll just listen to all these on repeat now. (Also, Idk if you’ve already been nominated, but I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award over on my blog) Lovely post! 🙂

    1. *high fives* YAY for Carry On! ❤ Ahaha I LOVE that book. I think I'm warming up for a re-read soon, but I'm telling myself that I need to finish my other books first. I hope you enjoy the playlist! (Ooh and thanks so much. *heads over to check that out*)

  3. for some stupid reason I never saw this post?! A TRUE TRAGEDY. Anyhow, this playlist looks absolutely SPECTACULAR and while I do not know many of the songs, I must high five for a+ lana del rey and bastille choices. *nods*

  4. *sees title* *immediately clicks follow button*
    how do i carry on with my life after this book?! (ha, puns, ha) love the playlist! high five for bastille

      1. don’t mention it :). and i love “flailing” as another word for fangirling because personally, if i read a really cute or dramatic part, i quite literally start flailing and writhing around on my chair/bed/sofa.

      2. Flailing is basically my default word for all fan-related excitable activities. I think it describes what I actually to very accurately! 😛
        AH YES I LOVE BAZ. He is so awesome. Much angst and wit. My tiny vampire. (I am currently re-readng Carry On which is causing me a lot of feelings.)
