Play list of songs I feel epitomize the magical real life world of Weetzie Bat!

  • Jun 22, 2010
 Francesca Lia Block uses music to add depth and emotion in her magical and lyrical Weetzie Bat book series. Block, who used to write for Spin Magazine has interviewed many bands; one of my favorites is her interview of Tori Amos during the Boys For Pele (1996) period.

These are some of my favorite songs that create a fitting soundtrack to Weetzie Bat series. They are not in any particular order and I am not leaving reasons why I've added these songs as I believe the songs speak for themselves.
Lust for Life by Iggy Pop
Rocking and super energetic! Block mentions this song in Weetzie Bat...its the only one I've used from the songs she's mentioned in the books. It is just too perfect to leave out. I imagine this is a song Weetzie and Dirk would have bopped along to while driving the streets of LA!

What did you think of this list?

Fun to Read

Thanks! It took a long time to add everything!! Glad to hear its worth while! I usually find I pair a book I've read to the music I was listening to while reading... so this was fun! I might slowly go song by song and edit the reasoning!

Hey Tori! I think it would be great to go through the list and edit your reasons behind each song choice and how it epitomizes the series. I just featured it in the community, and I'm hoping more members will give you some props!

This was a great idea for a list! Feel free to express how each piece of music inspired the book series too, especially for us newbies who haven't read one of the titles. ;)

I am a quirky girl making my awkward way through life. Sometimes stumbling or stuck along the way but always looking for things to make me smile and laugh. I don't want to grow up ~although when I … more
