The Closing Music Playlist

Library regulars will be aware of one Alexandria Campus tradition:  the nightly playing of the closing song.  About 5 minutes before the Library closes, users are alerted to the impending cessation of service with a serenade of appropriately themed music.

The librarian on duty is responsible for selecting the song of the night.  Some librarians select from a fairly fixed play list, some swap it up every shift.

Students often ask what songs we play and who the artist is.  Here is a selection of from this semester's playlist:

Girlfriend in a Coma.  The Smiths
Friday I'm in Love.  The Cure
Come with me now.  Kongos
Tubthumping.  Chumbawumba
Pompeii.  Bastille
Imperial March.  John Williams

Taro, Alt-J
Chan Chan, Buena Vista Social Club
Side of the Road, Lucinda Williams
Goodbye, Farley Granger

   Send Me on My Way – Rusted Root
   I Was Born (A Unicorn) – The Unicorn
Werewolves of London – Warren Zevo
\Two Weeks – Grizzly Bear
Daylight – Matt & Kim
Just Can’t Get Enough – Depeche Mode
Conquest of Spaces – Woodkid
