This book: Record Collecting for Girls.
You never leave home without your iPod. You have a real relationship with your music, and your life unfolds to the soundtrack of your tunes on shuffle. But where do you turn when you’re looking for new—not always recent—tracks to add to your collection? Or for the female perspective on classic music debates, like Beatles vs. Stones? And who is going to tell you what you can learn from your crush’s music collection? (If he’s an overzealous Smith’s fan, send him packing.) For years, you’ve been listening to men talk about music, but the woman’s side of the story has been missing. Until now.
In Record Collecting for Girls Courtney Smith takes the mic and explores what music can tell women about men, and more importantly, about themselves. She riffs on a range of topics from Our songs and Your songs to the evolution of girl bands. She provides playlists for occasions that necessitate a finely crafted mix – like making out or breaking up – and gives readers tips for curating a real record collection. Finally, here is a voice that speaks women—because girls get their hearts broken and make mix tapes about it, too.
