One Track Minds edited by Kristian Brodie and Adam Shakinovsky - Review

Sunday, August 7, 2022

I backed this book on Unbound and it arrived a few weeks ago, and after I'd finished my last book I was digging around in the pile next to the side of the bed and thought, oh yes, this sounds perfect. I had to move many boxes of tablets to dig around in the pile of books, which is the reality of chronic illness life to be honest! 

This book is a small collection of essays about a song that has changed someone's life in some way or another. Most of these essays have been performed by the writer for a podcast, but it was nice to read the words too. Some of the songs I knew and some I didn't, but the book helpfully has QR codes after each song for the reader to check the songs out on Spotify or similar. Some of the songs are classics and some are really unknown - one essay is about a video game theme tune! 

I like people writing passionately about music so this was right up my street. I'm giving it four out of five.
