Soundtrack for To Sir Phillip, with Love

  • “For Emily, Wherever I May Find Her” by Simon & Garfunkel

    I think this might be the most romantic song ever recorded. And I sometimes thought of this book in my head as For Eloise, Wherever I May Find Her.

  • “Your Mother Should Know” by The Beatles

    Violet turned out to be the greatest surprise in the Bridgerton series. I had no idea when I began that she would emerge as such a wonderful and fully-realized character. I think it was in this book, however, that we first saw just how wise and perceptive she could be.

  • “Life on a Chain” by Pete Yorn

    “I was waiting over here for life to begin.” Doesn’t that sound like Phillip?

  • “Someday Someway” by Marshall Crenshaw

    One of my favorite parts of this book was how Phillip is such a guy. He doesn’t want to talk about things over and over (like Eloise), and the truth is, women just baffle him. Which makes the refrain “Someday, someway, maybe I’ll understand you” totally apt.
