Playlist: Time After Time

This book is set in 1984. Ironically, it’s a year I don’t totally remember. My mom passed away that year when I was a freshman in high school. While researching the time, I thought: “Wow, that song came out? And that song?” Yeah, so many small connections built into a story that hopefully, lingers.

Each song corresponds with a chapter. Here's a list in alphabetical order (no spoilers!).

Cyndi Lauper, “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” & “Time After Time”

Duran Duran, “Hungry Like a Wolf”

Eurythmics, “Sweet Dreams”

Frankie Goes to Hollywood, “Two Tribes”

Whodini, “The Freaks Come Out at Night”

INXS, “The One Thing”

Madonna, “Material Girl”

Pat Benatar, “Love is a Battlefield”

Prince, “Purple Rain”

The Police, “Every Breath You Take”

Time After Time


By Louisa Bacio


What’s old is new and what’s new is old. 

Time After Time Cover


After a good deed goes wrong, Serena and Peder tumble through time, landing in Hollywood during an ’80s musical revolution. 


The paranormal duo navigates the concrete waters of the past to find a way back to the future. Without the aid of modern technology, other members of The Nightshade Guild, or their dwindling energy sources, they must rely upon each other.


Maybe other “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” but Serena wants to get back home with her love. 

Available now!
