Theme playlists are a fun way to procrastinate, and this one is so good I had to share it. Y'all know Ulysses, AKA. Odysseus, right? He's kind of a big deal, if you don't know about this guy, let this playlist be an introduction to his character then go out and read either The Iliad or The Odyssey. Abridged versions are fine. Or just this one poem.
Did I miss a good song that should be included to honor the original rambling man? Lemme know in the comments! Eg. there should probably be a Led Zeppelin song on here somewhere.
Here's the rundown, and where to listen to the whole thing.
- The Prizefighter and the Heiress, Johnny Flynn
- Come With me Now, KONGOS
- White Room, Cream
- All Along the Watchtower, Jimi Hendrix
- Everybody Wants to Rule the World, Lorde
- The Railroad, Goodnight Texas
- Money, Power, Glory, Lana Del Rey
- Bottom of the River, Delta Rae
- Walking Far from Home, Iron & Wine
- Drop the Game, Flume
- Hallelujah, Leonard Cohen
So good a character that loads of people have used him to tell their own stories. So cool that even Marilyn Monroe was a fan. That's right. Get on board.
