If you're like me you can't wait to see Stephen Spielberg's adaptation of Ernest Kline's incredible novel Read Player One. RPO is quite possibly my favorite novel I've ever read. In the book, the creator of the groundbreaking VR universe OASIS, David Halliday grew up in the 80's and his interests become the interests of every person in the world. The book is full of references to D&D, 80's video games, movies, and most importantly MUSIC! The trailers have already given us a taste of the awesome 80's soundtrack we can expect but I put together a playlist of all the songs and bands referenced in the book. Before you make it out to the theater this weekend satiate yourself with these killer 80's tunes courtesy of James Halliday.
