Play(list) by the Book: 11/22/63

Hello, everybody! I'm so happy that yet another novel has offered me the opportunity to create a literary playlist. This time, the list is based on 11/22/63 by Stephen King. The book is rich in music references, both songs and artists. The playlist is quite long, but if you like the late '50s and early '60s, you'll love it. So, sit back and enjoy!

As usual, in the playlist, I included all the songs and artists mentioned throughout the novel. When a specific song wasn't mentioned, I tried to choose one that fit the time that the story was taking place. In this case, the story takes place from 1958 to 1963. Silent Night is mentioned in the novel with the alternative "Silent Mike, holy Mike". Another special case is The Battle Hymn of the Republic. In 11/22/63 was stated that Johnny Horton was singing it, but I was unable to find this version. Because of this, I included the version sung by Johnny Cash and another Johnny Horton's song.
