The Eleanor and Park Soundtrack

Eleanor-and-Park-Soundtrack
Illustrated by the talented, Tonn  from @tonnns on instagram!
Eleanor & Park can easily make into the top teenage love stories of our generation. It is different, emotional and addresses some real issues. I wish I had read it when I was in high school because it makes understanding so many feelings and situations easier. Having recently read the book, I immediately thought about what songs the soundtrack should have if this book is ever made into a movie. I would definitely like to see a movie like my favourites - "Once" and "Begin Again" which are similar in the sense that the love stories happen because of music. I googled a little and found that there is a movie being made indeed but couldn't find much information about it or even a possible soundtrack so I thought I would make my own.
This is my playlist that I like to call 'The Eleanor & Park Soundtrack' which has some songs from Park and Eleanor's favourite 80s bands and some tracks that I think would fit well with the story. There are some classics like "Love Me Do" and "How Soon Is Now?" by Eleanor & Park's favourite bands. The 'Can't stop falling in love with you' feeling best described by Elvis and a little number from Tom Odell. "Love Will Tear Us Apart" and "With Me" to describe the moment they had a fight around Christmas. I can imagine"All I Ask" playing when Park leaves Eleanor at her uncle's house(this song makes my heart break) and "With or Without You" for Park waiting for a letter, a call, a sign from Eleanor. I like to think it was a happy ending after all, "Here Comes The Sun..after a cold, lonely winter" to finish off, as Park thinks he finally has a sign, a word that Eleanor will find a way back to him(wearing his tshirt for some extra feels).  Enjoy!
