Yellow Mixtape!

Yellow is set in the 90s – I wanted a time which was just before the internet or mobiles were really a thing – but also – NOSTALGIA.

While writing I was transported back to the era of overalls, bindis, tencel jeans, doc martens, purple nail-polish, Winona Ryder, The Craft, chokers, VHS, bright pink fudge hair-dye, sun-in, Dolly mag, lipsmackers, sunflower prints, disposable cameras, toe-rings, over-plucked eyebrows and of course, these tunes.

Some are specifically mentioned in the book, so that includes a few songs from earlier decades, and the others are just ones I imagined the characters listening to.

So here it is.

The YELLOW mixtape!

No Doubt – Don’t Speak


Silverchair – Freak


Alanis Morissette – Hand in My Pocket


Cat Stevens – Moonshadow


The Cardigans – Lovefool


Elvis Presley – In the Ghetto


Spice Girls – Wannabe


Nirvana – Smells Like Teen Spirit


Eva Cassidy – Fields of Gold


Metallica – One


Jewel – Who Will Save Your Soul?


And this one’s not of the right era at all, but let’s include it anyway.

Coldplay – Yellow



Now let’s pretend I’d made this for you on a cassette tape by pressing record when the songs came on the radio.

  1. There is a tiny corner of my heart that will always and forever belong to Leonardo DiCaprio circa Romeo & Juliet – specifically the fish tank scene. What a great post, I didn’t realise Tim Winton released an accompanying CD to complement Dirt Music – what an excellent idea! And I for one cannot wait to read a novel which will have a grunge soundtrack plus Paul Kelley’s ‘Dumb Things’. It can’t not be awesome 🙂
