Every so often, my Twitter followers will ask me which songs I feel are a perfect fit for Ahsoka, or I’d stumble upon Star Wars-themed playlists elsewhere on the internet, such as Jen Strawn’s Sabine-themed soundtrack or the character playlists on Spotify, which come complete with groovy lightsaber progress bars.
Normally I’m terrible at compiling playlists for fictional characters; I struggle to find tracks that I feel relate to, or remind me of, said characters and my choices are often a reflection of my (arguably) questionable taste in music. But Twitter friend Radio Ryloth, a contributing editor for Future of the Force, convinced me to give it a shot anyway.
So here are the snippy tunes and sassy beats I’d pick for my Ahsoka Tano playlist:
- David Guetta featuring Sia – ‘Titanium’
- La Roux – ‘Bulletproof’
- Alicia Keys – ‘Girl on Fire’
- Kelly Clarkson – ‘Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)’
- Enigma – ‘Return to Innocence’
- Katy Perry – ‘Firework’
- Pat Benatar – ‘Hit Me With Your Best Shot’
- Queen – ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’
- Jimmy Eat World – ‘The Middle’
- Elton John – ‘I’m Still Standing’
- Kylie Minogue – ‘Get Outta My Way’
- Foo Fighters – ‘Walk’
- The Runaways – ‘Cherry Bomb’
- KT Tunstall – ‘Suddenly I See’
- David Guetta featuring Kelly Rowland – ‘Commander’
- The Pussycat Dolls – ‘I Don’t Need a Man’
- Shakira – ‘Try Everything’
- Anna Kendrick – Cups (from ‘Pitch Perfect’)
- Coldplay – ‘Paradise’ (suggested by @averyktano)
Some of you may notice some common themes running through this list…and that I have a penchant for cheesy pop and rock music. Many of these tracks celebrate resilience, determination, self-confidence, inner strength, and female bad-assery, driving home the importance of forging your own path in life and encouraging a bold, positive attitude even in the darkest of times.
This playlist can be found on Spotify (click here to follow it) and new tracks will be added to it as I come across them. So feel free to give it a follow and bring a bit of upbeat cheer to your day!
