1 Review
Nick Hornby writes about 31 songs - most of them loved, some of them once loved, all of them significant to him - beginning with Teenage Fanclub's 'Your Love Is The Place That I Come From', ending with Patti Smith's 'Pissing in a River', and encompassing singers as varied as Van Morrison and Nelly Furtado, songs as different as 'Thunder Road' and 'Puff the Magic Dragon' (reggae style). He discusses, among other things, guitar solos and singers whose teeth whistle, and the sort of music you hear in the Body Shop.

J'hésite à te filer les contes de la folie ordinaire de bukowsky, mais tout seul sur un bateau, je ne suis pas sûr que ce soit une lecture recommandable. Sinon, et puisque l'auteur a déjà été par spiro le dragon, enfin rody le pirate pour les intimes, 31 songs du même auteur. 31 chansons vues par hornby. Pas de jiji goldman, mais des références sympa comme Röyskopp's, Soulwax ou plus consensuel, beatles, Van morrison. Bref le but du jeu étant évidemment de partir avec le cd de ces 31 chansons et de lire le bouquin.
