Dear Friend,

The other day I heard that The Perks of Being A Wallflower is going to be a film. Wow! And, as you can imagine, it’s going to have a great soundtrack. So great, that I’d say it’s the best mix since Garden State. I just love the Garden State soundtrack. And the movie. I don’t know why I’m telling you this.

Anyway, I hope you will listen to it. To tell you the truth, I’ve already listened to it dozens of times. It has The Smiths, of course, and New Order, and Cracker, and Bowie, and Sonic Youth, and many others. Author Stephen Chbosky even had a hand in selecting the tunes.

It has the potential to make you feel infinite.

The book is definitely a Boogie favorite – dust off your copy and brush up before the release! Track list to follow – you can get your autumn mix today. And see the film this Friday.

Love Always,

1. The Samples – Could It Be Another Change
2. Dexys Midnight Runners – Come On Eileen
