#Pizzathology Pizza Party Playlist

By Jolene Haley

Brian LeTendre and I love to write. More specifically, Brian and I love to write together.

We’ve written three books together (Harrowed, Haunted, and Orchard Pointe), the novella Are We There Yeti?, and our newest collaboration is the A Pizza My Heart Anthology featuring our stories and thirteen amazing authors!

One of the key drivers behind our words (besides lots of coffee) is music! We have loads and loads of playlists between the two of us on Spotify, CDs, cassette tapes, and vinyl. As far back as we can both remember, music has been our life!
Think about it. Music can make us feel sad or happy or angry. It can help us deal when times get hard. It can set the scene in a movie or a book scene perfectly. It can remind us of a specific person, place or a moment in time. I love, love music.

A Pizza My Heart comes out February 9th, 2017—which is also a very important holiday…National Pizza Day! What better way to celebrate than to buy a pizza, invite your friends over, play some sweet pizza party playlists, and take turns reading each other stories from the pizzathology!

Brian and I both sat down separately and made some dreamy playlists for the A Pizza My Heart anthology for your listening enjoyment! Here they are.

Brian’s Playlist
Okay, so I put together an '80s Playlist on Spotify. Twelve slices of 80’s amazingness. You can listen on Spotify here.

Here are the songs:

Jolene’s playlist
My pizza party is of the pop punk variety. Pop punk is some of my favorite music and it always reminds me of some of my happiest moments in life. Pizza + happy moments became this playlist’s inspiration. You can listen on Spotify here.

Here are the songs:

Kali Ma – Neck Deep
Passing Through a Screen Door – The Wonder Years
Late Nights in My Car – Real Friends
Leaving – The Starling Line
Jamie All Over – Mayday Parade
When You’re Around – Motion City Soundtrack
Hit or Miss – New Found Glory
Bukowski – Moose Blood
Still Into You – Paramore

Say This Sooner – The Almost
Screams In Caves – Polar Bear Club
Online Songs – Blink 182
Voldemort – With Confidence
Five Minutes to Midnight – Boys Like Girls


Just add some pizza and hungry friends and voila! Your pizza party has arrived!
We challenge you now, to go make the best pizza party playlist around or make a list of your dream song playlist and share the link below in the comments! We’d love to hear it on here or tweet it to us on Twitter!
