Summer Skin playlist

It’ll give you nearly 3 hours of auditory pleazzzure. But – plot twist! – it’s not 100% correct. The real playlist is the chapter list. Every chapter is a song title (and the artist is mentioned somewhere in the corresponding chapter – except Ch.23, Everything is Embarrassing, because Sky Ferreira, the artist, is mentioned at the end of Ch.22 instead).

So what’s different? Spotify wouldn’t let me add ‘Alpha’ by LOLO BX.

Nor could I include ‘Pictures’ by Wish.

So I stuck ‘How Do You Do It’ by Empress of in there instead because I’ve been listening to it a lot lately.

Also I substituted ‘This is what makes us girls’ by Lana Del Rey, for ‘You can be the boss’ – also by Lana Del Rey. If you do a search around you’ll probably find it. It’s one of her demo songs from when she was early into her ingenue phase. (On this – when will she release those demo songs? Is that planned? Has it happened?) Anyway, my original choice goes a lot better with that chapter (which is one of the controversial ones, apparently).

And everything else is the same.
