MIX TAPE TO ACCOMPANY CARRIE FIRESTONE'S "THE LOOSE ENDS LIST"!

At various points in her book "The Loose Ends List", the author Carrie Firestone mentions the names of certain composers, musicians and songs as a means to enhance the narrative.  

I have compiled a comprehensive list of these names and musical pieces along with youtube videos to match.  When Ms. Firestone didn't give me the name of a specific piece of music, I posted my best estimate of what I thought she would have preferred.  Ok, I might have let my sense of humor get the better of me on occasion.  

Readers can use this mixtape to enhance their reading experience, and I've included the page numbers to assist in that process.  

See below:

1.  Beethoven or Bach, no specific piece, p. 78

I picked Bach's "Come Sweet Death"
