Because Riddhi asked, so nicely.

My list of recommendations for the fast fading year. Based on my own prized discoveries and rediscoveries of the last few months.

I Shall Be Released- Bob Dylan
At This Moment- Michael Buble
Bach's Canon in D Major
O Fortuna- Carl Orff (If you've watched more than ten movies in your life, you'll DEFINITELY recognise this one when you hear it.)
High Noon Ballad- Tex Ritter
O'Children- Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
Tore My Heart-Oona and Dave Tweedie
Trust Me- Janis Joplin
If Love is a Red Dress- Maria McKee

The Name of the Rose-Umberto Eco
Cannery Row- Steinbeck
Franny and Zooey- J.D. Salinger
The Leopard- Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa
Short stories by Katherine Mansfield and Truman Capote
Poetry by Rainer Maria Rilke, Yehuda Amichai, Walt Whitman, Gerard Manley Hopkins, 'The Hollow Men' (Eliot)

American Beauty
Rosenkrantz and Guildenstern are Dead (And this demands, well at least suggests, a reading of Hamlet)
