Edith Wharton Did Not Approve This Playlist

Whether you're Team May or Team Ellen or just can't understand why Newland Archer didn't just stay a bachelor bro for ever, you just may find something to like on our (unofficial) Age of Innocence soundtrack. Songs about unrequited love? Check. Songs about New York? Check. Taylor Swift? Check. Songs from the actual time period when the novel is set..... uhm, we'll get back to you on that one.

Here's a sneak peek at some of the songs on the playlist: a little Whitney Houston for Newland Archer, a little Al Green for May Welland, and, of course, Lady Gaga for Countess Olenska. Listen to the entirety of Edith Wharton Did Not Approve This Playlist on the NEA YouTube channel
