Booktracks - Rob Sheffield's Love Is A Mixtape

I cannot count how many times, while reading Rob Sheffield's Love Is A Mixtape, I thought: "Hey, that's it! That's how things work, or should! It's really like this!". Naturally, I don't share 100% of the author's musical tastes (let's say, 73,8%). Neither I share(d) a sentimental relation like the one he had with his wife Renée, full of mixtapes, romance, gigs, fun and grief (though I must confess I often long for something like that... without the grief part).

But many feelings and thoughts (and dirty playlist-making obsessions), yes, they seemed to come out of my mind. And many parts of the book, they're so great that I'd really like I wrote them before him. It's a nice book, believe me. There are some sad moments in it. Some melancholy for the golden age of 90s, as time goes by. Mostly, though, it gives you free laughs. A lot of them. I'm European, I have been raised by High Fidelity, so somehow I see it as kind of an American answer to Nick Hornby. With less Britannia and more Pavement. Generating the same, light, witty reading pleasure.

It's a book full of playlists. Or better, mixtapes. Title's not a trick: every chapter starts with one.
Yes... right guess, I spotified all of them. :o)
If you decide to read it, here you find - definitely and literally - the right soundtrack.

"Every time I have a crush on a woman, I have the same fantasy: I imagine the two of us as a synth-pop duo. No matter who she is, or how we meet, the synth-pop duo fantasy has to work, or the crush fizzles out. I have loads of other musical fantasies about my crushes - I picture us a Gram-and-Emmylou country harmony duo, or as guitarists in a rock band, trading off vocals like Mick and Keith. But for me, it always comes back to the synth-pop duo. The girl is up front, swishing her skirt, tossing her hair, a saucy little firecracker. I'm the boy in the back, hidden behind my Roland JP8000 keyboard."
