Current Song: Kids by Robbie Williams and Kylie Minogue

Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist is a book packed with musical references, from the opening acknowledgements until the reader-generated playlists at the website. However, the book doesn't come with a CD. If it did, it would have to be a two-disc special. Disc one would be filled with Nick's original music, of course. Disc two would act as a soundtrack for the book, with each track representing a chapter, and using various artists, alternating male and female voices as they did in the book. That second disc might sound a little something like this:

Chapter/Track One: Nick: Casual Affair by Tonic
Chapter/Track Two: Norah: Genius or a Fool by Jonatha Brooke
Chapter/Track Three: Nick: Hey There, Little Miss Tease by Ricky Nelson
Chapter/Track Four: Norah: Now I'm Following You (Part II) by Madonna
Chapter/Track Five: Nick: Best I Ever Had (Grey Sky Morning) by Vertical Horizon
Chapter/Track Six: Norah: Ex-Girlfriend by No Doubt
Chapter/Track Seven: Nick: Toxic by Nickel Creek
Chapter/Track Eight: Norah: Let Me Sleep by Laika
Chapter/Track Nine: Nick: If You Don't, Don't by Jimmy Eat World
Chapter/Track Ten: Norah: Step On Me by The Cardigans
Chapter/Track Eleven: Nick: Don't Wait by Dashboard Confessional
Chapter/Track Twelve: Norah: Volcano Girls by Veruca Salt
Chapter/Track Thirteen: Nick: On Her Mind by Duncan Sheik
Chapter/Track Fourteen: Norah: Fast As You Can by Fiona Apple
Chapter/Track Fifteen: Nick: So I Fall Again by Phantom Planet
Chapter/Track Sixteen: Norah: Fade Into You by Mazzy Star
Chapter/Track Seventeen: Nick: Flames by VAST
Chapter/Track Eighteen: Norah: Falling In Love by Lisa Loeb
Chapter/Track Nineteen: Nick: I Want You to Want Me by Cheap Trick
Chapter/Track Twenty: Norah: Kids by Robbie Williams and Kylie Minogue

Nice!
I think I'll reread the book with the songs in mind. ;)
