By now I’m sure everyone has heard the news – the Grishaverse is coming to Netflix! I’ll admit, I haven’t read the original Shadow & Bone trilogy (Yes, I’m one of those people…but I’m getting around to it!). I have read the Six of Crows duology. And, while it isn’t my favorite series of all time, the heist badass-ery did deserve a playlist. I thought I’d share to keep up with the hype/wait!
The epic heist situations in this series deserved a playlist that was just as epic. Here are some of my favorites!
Another One Bites The Dust, Queen
The book opens with a gang meetup gone wrong…and shooting ensues. How can you not picture Kaz walking down a dark alley with this playing behind him? The answer: you can’t. Because it was MADE for him.
Notable Lyrics: “Are you happy, are you satisfied? How long can you stand the heat? Out of the doorway the bullets rip to the sound of the beat”
Jailbreak, Thin Lizzy
This is the theme song for the entire series. They break into places, out of places, and all the other things you can break and it’s just so perfect.
Notable Lyrics: “Tonight there’s gonna be a jailbreak. Somewhere in this town. See me and the boys we don’t like it. So were getting up and going down”
How You Like Me Now, The Heavy
All the main characters in the crew have some bad reps. And you see them evolve as the story progresses as they find new meanings to live and new reasons why they’re doing what they’re doing. It’s also an angsty, rock song that goes with the dark vibes.
Notable Lyrics: “See, I been a bad bad bad bad man. And I’m in deep, yeah.
I found a brand new love for this man, And can’t wait till you see.”
