Playlist: Sounds of Revolution

Revolution is about a lot of things: love, loss, hope, redemption, forgiveness — and the life-altering power of music. The book’s main character, Andi Alpers, is a gifted musician, and very little time goes by that she is not thinking about a band, a composer, a guitar player, a song, a phrase, a note. I have gotten several requests to provide the playlist for Revolution; here it is — straight from Andi’s head … and heart.

I think this list is comprehensive, but please let me know if I missed anything!!
