'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.
