The soundtrack for Talked to Death

This was a tough one. There aren’t that many songs about library conferences. Who’d have thought? 🙂 But I put together a list that I thought matched up with some of the scenes in the book. CAUTION: Spoiler alert!!!


On the Road Again – Willie Nelson: As Jamie and Liz are driving

Shouting in the Library – Popple: When Creighton is arguing in the lobby as Pete and Jamie go to dinner

Something to Talk About – Bonnie Raitt: When Pete and Jamie shower together before bed

Jive Talkin – Bee Gees: When Pete is telling Jamie that the police want them to sit in on the questioning

Librarian – Haunted Love: When Avery Roth is telling the police about Creighton and Renee Jubelirer

Low Budget – The Kinks: When Grant Schaeffer is talking about cuts to the library’s databases at the reception

Sympathy for the Devil – Rolling Stones: When we first see Haywood Kern on Jamie’s laptop

Getting Away With Murder – Papa Roach: When Autumn reports on the sidewalk conversation she overheard

Dirty Work – Steely Dan: As Kern is being led from his home by Detective Rinaldi

Everybody’s Talkin’ – Harry Nilsson: When Rinaldi is telling Pete and Jamie about Amanda and Gwen
