A new feature for lyriquediscorde is Character Study Playlists. I will be picking fictional characters from Film, TV, Books, and I may even share some from the novel I’m working on. The idea is to fill a Playlist with songs that are indicative of the character, describe the character, and/or are songs one might find in their Music collection. The time that the character exists within does not matter with Song selection, though it may have an influence on some of the choices.
Feel free to drop some requests in the comments for future Character Study Playlists.
For my first round I chose Clementine Kruczynski from the Film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. She is one of my all-time Favorite fictional characters so she seemed the perfect one to start with.
She’s complicated, mercurial, emotional, endearing, frustrating, intriguing, and unforgettable. What better collection of traits could you ask for to build a stellar Playlist?So here we go, the first edition of Character Study Playlists featuring Clementine Kruczynski. Press Play and I’ll meet you in Montauk.
Special thanks to Amber for her help with some song selections.
