While we’re waiting for the official release of Off Pitch (TBD) I decided to procrastinate the things I should be doing by making a playlist inspired by the book! It’s a collection of things music from the videogame FIFA 16 (which I used as a mechanics primer on soccer. I didn’t know much about the sport before I started this story), songs I binged on repeat while I was writing the book (“Like Real People Do”), music that appears in the story (Creep), and aesthetic selections.
If you’ve already read the book, I hope this playlist will carry you back to fond memories. If you’re waiting anxiously for release day to have your first crack at the story, I hope you’ll let this playlist grace your ears and fill you with antici…PATION! (Bonus points if you can name that reference.)
Do you think it captures the spirit of the story? Is there anything you think I should add? Let me know in the comments below!
