Another theme mix, this all having songs related to literature or film. A guide for the songs that aren't immediately apparent:
5) "A dreaded sunny day, so I meet you at the cemetary gates. Keats and Yates are on your side, but weird lover Wilde is on mine."
7) "I've got a bald head, my name is Yul Brynner, and I am a famous movie star."
8) "You're reading Fitzgerald, you're reading Hemingway. They're both super smart, and drinking in the cafes."
11) "Jimmy Stewart follows Kim to where your portrait hangs on a wall."
13) "But I never believed in T.E. Lawrence, so how the hell could I believe in Beau Geste?"
16) "Got more stories than J.D. got Salinger, I hold the title and you are the challenger. I've got money like Charles Dickens, got the girlies in the coupe like the Colonel's got the chickens."
17) Misty Mountains = Tolkien location
18) "Then came hallelujah sounding like mad Ophelia for me in my room living."
21) "On The Road with Kerouac, sheltered in his bivouac..."

Sorry, that would be "Yeats," not "Yates."

This is a really creative idea, with good songs by good bands to boot! I especially like the idea of the "Bookends"...that's cute. This made me think of the 10,000 Maniacs song "Hey Jack Kerouac"
