My Everest Story Playlists

My Everest Story

I am reading the book My Everest Story. These are my songs: Ain't No Mountain High Enough by Marivn Gaye, I Need A Dollar by Aloe Blacc, Coming Home by Diddy and Ring of Fire by Johnny Cash.

Ain't No Mountain High Enough by Marvin Gaye

I would start off with Ain't No Mountain High Enough by Marvin Gaye, because the song talks about mountains. It is Mark's dream to climb mountains.

I Need A Dollar by Aloe Blacc

Mark read an ad that had a 3 week trek to Nepal for $5000. He was only 13 at the time. He wrote letters to businesses to ask for donations. He successfully raised the money

Ring of Fire by Johnny Cash

Climbing a mountain is very hard to do. If you don't set up your tent right you could slide off the mountain. You have to stay well fed or you can get sick. Also, while Mark was climbing, word got to him that his dad was diagnosed with cancer.

Coming Home by Diddy

Mark had to face his father's cancer diagnosis while climbing. His dad died after he returned.
