At the beginning of this new year Goodreads member Vincent posted a thread about reversal of the Murakami & Music combination:
Its often spoke about how Murakami has been influenced by various types of music but does anyone know of any notable musicians that have claimed to have been influenced by his writings?
I had to dig deep through folders and gigs to find the original Booktunes page dedicated to Murakami-inspired music. Noting that by now the list would be a lot bigger – apparently mainstream artist Lykke Li found some inspiration as well – I hope you and Vincent enjoy the tunes on display.

Raisa: El caso es salir de aqui
Ryan Anthony Francis – Wind Up Bird Preludes
Lykke Li: Get Some – inspired by Wind-Up Bird’s Creta Kano
