Murakami’s music

I’m a huge fan of Haruki Murakami’s books and one of the things that made me love him was his taste in music and the artists and song mentioned throughout the stories so I’m gonna share with you my favorite songs mentioned in a few of his books (might update it as soon as I collect some more songs because I still have to read a few books from him).

Here are the book titles and my favorite song(s) from them:
