There is a hidden playlist within The Resort. This goes back to the original first draft, written in 2006. Each chapter was a song title and the mood was meant to take after the song. This was stripped in later versions, then restored. The working draft of the published book had the same concept, as a throwback to the first draft, until it was removed for publication purposes and separated into what is below.
By no means is this a concrete vision of The Resort. Each reader is more than welcome to insert their own mood, music and vision of The Resort into their own hidden playlist.
In the below playlist, the official artist’s Vevo account was used if there was in fact a Vevo release associated (as in, a music video or lyric video). There are a few exceptions to this rule:
- Song 2 in the playlist: Gilli Moon’s “Need You Tonight” is through a pole dance video. This was the only available version on YouTube and is age-restricted.
- Song 4 is only one half of the song, on the YouTube playlist. This is because the album release of Rihanna’s “Love Without Tragedy/Mother Mary” is a two song track, and only one half was meant to be in the playlist.
- Song 10 in the hidden playlist has been omitted from the YouTube playlist below, as no version of the song exists on YouTube. Instead, their Bandcamp page holds the correct song.
