It might have too many repeating artists, but I still think it's a fair representation of the story. I really think 'Basket Case' is actually about the book., with lines like "I went to a whore who said my life's a bore."

I always liked that Clash song, though the book always seemed a bit phony to me...

I also did a soundtrack to The Catcher in the Rye, for a school project once. I think your song selection is more accessible at first listen, whereas mine required a lengthy description to get the point across. I've been wanting to get into Blur lately, and after taking a look at your mix, I think I just might ^_^.
