My favorite book of all time is Herman Melville's Moby-Dick. I did a playlist
of songs inspired by that novel last November. But although Moby-Dick is my favorite novel, I would have to say that my favorite author of all time is Mark Twain. His humor, wit and ability to capture American life has not been matched, and so I thought I would create a playlist of songs based on one of his most famous and successful novels, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
. This playlist includes 8 tracks that are named after characters from this classic piece of American literature. Many are very well-known songs and others are not. Unfortunately, I could not find songs named after key characters like the Widow Douglas, Sid and Muff Potter, who in my opinion, has one of the best fictional names ever penned. So if you're aware of any songs named after characters I have not included, please let me know in the comments.
