Bookish Playlists

Bookish Playlist: The Tattooist of Auschwitz

Greetings and Salutations bookworms!

 Who’s ready for another bookish playlist? I am pretty excited for this one because when I’m reading books from a certain time era, I tend to listen to the music from that timeline. So yes, I did listen to 1940’s music along with the Swing Kids soundtrack. There will be some music from modern times too.



The Music:

1. I’ll Be Seeing You – Billie Holiday

I got some major The Notebook vibes from Lale and Gita and I couldn’t help not including Billie Holiday in this list.

2. La Vie en Rose – Louis Armstrong

Honestly, I feel like I mostly picked love songs for this list.

3. My Man – Billie Holiday

From Gita. To Lale.

4. Look for the Silver Lining – Chet Baker

Lale was so full of life even in the darkest of times that this song fit perfectly for him.

Key Lyrics: “A heart full of joy and gladness
Will always banish sadness and strife
So always look for the silver lining
And try to find the sunny side of life”

5. Falling in Love Again (German) – Marlene Dietrich

I just thought this was a cute song and Marlene Dietrich has a lovely voice.

6. Young  and Beautiful – Lana del Rey

The way that Lale said he thought Gita was beautiful no matter what reminded me of this song. 

Key Lyrics: “Will you still love me
When I’m no longer young and beautiful?
Will you still love me
When I’ve got nothing but my aching soul?
I know you will, I know you will
I know that you will
Will you still love me when I’m no longer beautiful?”

7. If I Should Lose You – Chet Baker

Lale was a romantic and there’s no doubt about that. I could almost picture Lale singing this to his lovely Gita.

8. At Last – Etta James

For when the silver lining begins to show.

9. Ain’t No Sunshine – Bill Withers

For whenever Lale was separated from Gita.

10. When the World Was at War We Kept Dancing – Lana del Rey

This sort of reminded of how Gita and Lale found their own little happiness while imprisoned. As the title and chorus go, “While the world was at war, we kept dancing.” 


I hope you enjoyed this Bookish Playlist and be sure to check out The Tattooist of Auschwitz tomorrow on it’s book birthday! 

I’ll be seeing you my friends,
