Stephenie’s playlists are almost as equally anticipated as her books themselves. And there are always a lot of questions about the magic behind them. Stephenie usually has a chance to answer those questions during her book tours but Covid has taken that opportunity from all of us. So, we had to get creative.
For ONE TIME ONLY, we’d like to introduce a podcast of sorts. Wherein Stephenie sits down with her quarantine buddy, Meghan, and discusses each song, why it made the playlist, how it influenced her and how it fits into the story.
Some of your burning questions will be answered!
Is The Night We Met THE prom song?
When did Stephenie first hear Claire de Lune?
(Long before she wrote Twilight)
Why does Meghan say ‘legit’ so many times?
(This is never answered)
Also, there are some important moments from the book that are missing songs. So, if you have suggestions, we are all ears. The playlist is a living thing that can grow and change!
