Theoretical Prince and the Pauper Character Playlists

You can really tell a lot about someone by reading through their playlists. This led me to think about what sort of songs might appear on the playlists of our main characters in The Prince and the Pauper if they were alive today. These playlists span the range of emotions the characters may have felt so far in the story. Enjoy!
