For our very first book playlist, there was no book better to pick than The Martian by Andy Weir.

Despite the protagonist Mark Watney’s relative isolation on Mars, creating a music playlist is actually quite simple. After all, Watney gets stuck on MARS in a desperate survival situation with nothing but Disco.

“The data transfer rate just isn’t good enough for the size of music files, even in compressed formats. So your request for “Anything, oh God, ANYTHING but Disco” is denied. Enjoy your boogie fever.”

So we created a playlist inspired by The Martian and built around the Bee Gees song “Stayin’ Alive.”

So grab the book, get in the boogie mood and listen to our playlist inspired by The Martian by Andy Weir on Spotify:
