'I decided that I wanted to write a little book of essays about songs I loved ...Songs are what I listen to, almost to the exclusion of everything else.' In his first non-fiction work since "Fever Pitch", Nick Hornby writes about 31 songs that either have some great significance in his life - or are just songs that he loves. He discusses, among other things, guitar solos and losing your virginity to a Rod Stewart song and singers whose teeth whistle and the sort of music you hear in Body Shop. 'The soundtrack to his life ...a revealing insight into one of Britain's most popular writers' - "Evening Standard".
