Do We Change?

The Perks of Being Wallflower was written in 1999, but set in 1991. During this time, mixtapes were very popular. Many couples would make mixtapes for each other in order to show their love. This is a very important theme throughout the novel. We still do this in present time, just in a different format.
Nowadays, people use things such as Spotify or Apple Music to make playlists for the people that they love. It is practically the same as making a mixtape for someone, but just in modern ways.

The playlist below incorporates timeless songs along with ones that are commonly known in today’s age. The blend of the two create the perfect atmosphere of relatability.
