    Ever loved a song?

    Superb book. If any piece of music has ever moved you in any way, you'll relate to this book. I found myself stopping and reflecting on tbe words wrote here and saying; 'God, thats exactly the way I feel! Why couldn't I have said that!' Even if you've never heard any of the songs here, it wont matter because one mans meat is anothers poison. Music touches everyone at one time or another and this book shows how.

    These are his songs...makes me wonder what are mine.

    This was a great little book. Hornby writes in a very conversational style and writes about music, well, his music. He writes about songs that are important to him and why. These are the songs that resonate. He talks about the stories surrounding them; why they are important; and how they stay on his list.

    Hornby is the same writer who wrote "High Fidelity" and "About A Boy." With "Songbook" he keeps a similar theme. While, true, it's not exactly a Top 5 List it still evokes the same type of wonder...and how exactly pop music seems to highlight and even define a person.

    It's clever and entertaining and wry and sentimental and even a little inspiring. It's a good book.

    Oh, and it made me find Teenage Fanclub's "Songs from Northern Britain" and agree with Hornby's taken on them as well.
