Hi! P. J. Hoover here, author of the upcoming dystopian/mythology YA novel, Solstice (Tor Teen, June 18, 2013), and today I’m sharing my Solstice playlist for Team Myth. I want to point out that although back in my teen years I knew everything about all the music, I lost touch once the late 90s hit. So I’m not quite so up-to-date with the current tunes. This explains why my songs are all from the past =)

Myth Playlist for Solstice:

1) (DON’T FEAR) THE REAPER by Blue Oyster Cult

I realize I have a special place in my heart for Blue Oyster Cult. I saw them in concert at the most awesome venue in Georgetown, Washington DC back in high school. We were so close to the band. Loved that!

2) RIO by Duran Duran

Look for hidden lyrics in Solstice from these songs J Does anyone else hide lyrics in their writing?

3) I’M BURNING FOR YOU by Blue Oyster Cult

Again with the Blue Oyster Cult. I told you I had a special place for them J


“Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?”

5) LIPS LIKE SUGAR by Echo & The Bunnymen

Can you guess who has lips like sugar? I bet you’re wrong!

And there it is! I hope you enjoy it. If you feel so inclined, you can piece it all together and listen to it on iTunes! Thank you for reading!
