Happy Memorial Day Weekend! And welcome to another weekly edition of Music Monday! The first few Music Monday blogs are focusing on the music featured in my YA novel GOOD ENOUGH (HarperCollins ’08). The paperback edition of GOOD ENOUGH comes out this June 7, 2011. So I figured what better way to celebrate than to focus on the music in the book?
The novel is based on my life growing up as a violin geek who eventually learned how to “jam” and become a rock violinist. I have played with everyone from ’60s psychedelic rocker legend Arthur Lee of Love to ska rockers No Doubt! So my Sony Walkman cassette tape player in high school played everything from Mendelssohn to Morrissey and Debussy to …. DURAN DURAN.
So what does DURAN DURAN have to do with GOOD ENOUGH? Keep reading after the jump to find out!
