My Novella, “The Misadventures of Melody T.” is set in the early 2000’s. Melody is a 10th grader who is trying her best to figure out where it is she fits in, dealing with young love and loss.
I put together a playlist of songs on Spotify that are reminiscent of those times. These are songs that my main character Melody T. blasted in her headphones while riding on the school bus to school and band competitions. She also sat up late some nights, just laying in her bed when she couldn’t sleep listening to some Dru Hill or maybe Aaliyah or Avant.
Some of these songs she jammed to in the car while hanging out with her BFF’s Shannon and Mecca. Music is a big part of Melody’s life and later in the story we will see how it plays an even larger part.
Hope you enjoy!
P.S. A lot of these songs are the Explicit version…Spotify is just not very edited version friendly 🙂
