Cress Darnell | A Lunar Chronicles Playlist

The only way to follow up my Thorne Playlist from last week is obviously with Cress-Inspired music. Once again…let me express my love for anything related to Tangled, Rapunzel, or Flynn Rider. It’s my favorite Disney movie of all time and I. Will. Die. On. That. Hill. Rapunzel is one of the better fairy tales and I had so much fun putting this set together.

The Breakdown

Cress has been holed up in her space station, hacking her way through life. She has a bubbly personality, is incredibly shy, and only has rose-colored glasses when it comes to love, romance and her dashing hero. The songs I chose are definitely show off all of the above. See some of my favorites highlighted below!

When Will My Life Being – Mandy Moore

It would have been a crime not to include this song on Cress’s playlist. Imagine her stuck in her space station hair hacking computers, playing cheese, doing her exercises, and just being the best Rapunzel she can be.

Notable Lyrics: “And I’ll keep wonderin’ and wonderin’
And wonderin’ and wonderin’
When will my life begin?”

Be My Baby, The Ronettes

Cress is in love with Thorne and she listens to innocent, oldies loves songs daydreaming about the day she can make him hers. *SWOON*

Notable Lyrics: “The night we met I knew I needed you so
And if I had the chance I’d never let you go
So won’t you say you love me”

Crescent Moon, KT Tunstall

THIS SONG. It was the closest (and most amazing) thing I could find that reminded me of her sweet crescent moon lullaby. Just listen and tear up.

Notable Lyrics: “I’m a crescent moon
Looking for a place to lay my head and settle in
Never found a refuge up there in the sky
But never thought it would be you and I

What did you think of my picks? What songs would you add? Do you have any playlists you’d want me to create?

Carswell Thorne | A Lunar Chronicles Playlist

Check out Read By Dev’s Spotify Playlist inspired by Carswell Thorne. A character from Marissa Meyer’s best-selling series, The Lunar Chronicles.

I have seriously been neglecting my bookish playlists, so I thought I’d make a comeback and start off with one of my all time favorite f*ckboys – Thorne! He’s the cutest wannabe space pirate of the future. And, let’s be honest, I’m a sucker for anything Rapunzel, Tangled, or FLYNN RIDER related. Carswell Thorne can fly me to the moon any day.

The Breakdown

While Thorne doesn’t wear boat shoes or popped collars, he’s still the epitome of what it means to be a f*ckboy. He does his best to act hard and be the dashing, suave mystery man, but in reality he sits in his captain’s chair on the Rampion singing Taylor Swift, JoBros, Notorious BIG, and The Beastie Boys. Check out some of my fave picks and the lyrics that stand out to me!

Feel It Still, Portugal The Man

Thorne wants to be the Han Solo of the galaxy. He rebels against everyone and everything and walks to his own beat. *Swoon*

giphy

Notable Lyrics: “Ooh woo, I’m a rebel just for kicks, now…
Might be over now, but I feel it still”

Primadonna, MARINA

He also wants to be rich, famous, and loved by all. He knows he’s adorable & witty and definitely does want to kill everyone with his smolder. *Double Swoon*

giphy

Notable Lyrics: “Primadonna [boy], yeah
All I ever wanted was the world
I can’t help that I need it all”

Fly With Me, Jonas Brother

When Thorne finally realizes he loves Cress and wants to fly her to all the places she’s never seen before. But of course he can’t pick a normal song. It HAS to be the JoBros.

giphy

Notable Lyrics: “If it’s you and me forever
If it’s you and me right now…
If we chase the stars to lose our shadows…
So won’t you fly with me”
