What’s On Holden Caulfield’s Playlist?

By Robert Bruce @robertbruce76

Oh, Spotify, how I love you.

While I’m writing at work, I can pretty much pull up any song ever and listen to it—thanks to you, Spotify.

I can also do stupid and pointless stuff, like imagining what songs might be on Holden Caulfield’s Spotify playlist—were he actually a real person, alive today, as a teenager, with access to modern technology like computers and such.

So that’s what I’m doing today. I’m taking a stab at coming up with a Spotify playlist for perhaps the most annoying character in modern literature, Holden Caulfield from The Catcher in the Rye.

If you want to listen to this playlist yourself, simply log in with your Spotify account and visit this link: Holden Caulfield Playlist.

Maybe I’m giving Holden Caulfield too much credit in his musical tastes. Maybe he’d be a big fan of Creed, Nickelback and Hoobastank.

What’cha think?
