What’s On Scarlett O’Hara’s Playlist?

It’s time for another literary character playlist using Spotify!

Today, let’s look at what everybody’s (least?) favorite fictional southern diva might listen to, were she alive today and actually real.

I’m talking about Scarlett O’Hara.

She’s a strong, opinionated, feminine character who, usually, gets what she wants—including whatever man she wants. But she can be a softy too, and I think this playlist reflects her character well.

There’s the “screw you” vibe in Alanis Morrisette’s “You Oughta Know,” but there’s also the “I miss you and love you so much” vibe from Adele’s “Someone Like You.” It’s mostly mainstream, top 40 style music, because I think that’s what Scarlett would be in to. No obscure indie college bands here.

Basically, this is a playlist of break-up songs–because between Rhett and Ashley it seems Scarlett’s got more man troubles than mostly. And a lot of it is her fault.

See what you think. Be sure to scroll down to see all 15 songs.


Am I close? Way off?

You can follow the playlist over at Spotify and listen to it anytime you want. Also, you might want to check out my Holden Caulfield playlist as well.

Enjoy!

  1. Noooo why least favourite? I love Scarlet! And I can totally see her listening to Alanis Morisette and Kelly Clarkson lol. I would have included Avril Lavigne, especially ‘What the Hell’, ‘When You’re Gone’ and ‘Girlfriend’ (for Ashley)

  2. Add Christina Aguilera’s “Fighter” to that jukebox! Scroll to end of attached link for the video; Christina’s song is set to the finest, fieriest moments between Scarlett & Rhett. Totally inspired me.

  3. This is a pretty awesome concept! I actually have my own break up playlist, so I can think of a few other songs you might add and still keep with the “break up” theme: Breaking Up, by Rilo Kiley; Silver Lining, also by Rilo Kiley; Gonna Get Over You, by Sara Bareilles; Lullabies, by Yuna; Mountains, by Yuna.

    Because fictional characters need playlists to help get over break-ups, too.

    What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Stronger, Kelly Clarkson. I personally don’t care for this song, but I think its appropriate. The carrot didn’t kill her and she vowed to never go hungry again. I think it made her stronger. 😉

    We need something Southern. “why don’t you love me like you used to follow?”(Hank Williams). Taylor Swift? Not that up on current country music, Taylor is more pop now but plenty of relationship angst

      Oops, like you used to DO. Stupid iPhone. And there has to be something by Lady Antebellum just because of their name

    • Actually was going to use that “Never Ever Getting Back Together” song by Taylor Swift. But none of her music is on Spotify.

  9. I was gonna suggest Bad Blood by Talyor Swift. Have you seen the video? It’s a COOL ass video. Blank Space by Taylor Swift would also be good. I think she’d be big on Country Music which I know nothing about.

    I don’t know if I LOVE Scarlett, or HATE her. Passionate as she is, I cannot associate her with any emotions of mediocre intensity. I found this awesome post on 101 Books on what her playlist would have been. How could I not reblog this ? 🙂

    If you have read some of the posts on LostProse, you would be aware of the love of the movie Gone with the Wind and in particular the fearless Scarlett O’Hara. This post seems to be in honour of independence and strength and just had to be reblogged. I’m sure 101 Books would appreciate any additional songs you can suggest to the playlist. I would add Independent Women by Destiny’s Child and If You Are Not The One by Daniel Beddingfield.
