Music Listography: Your Life in (Play) Lists

(Chronicle Books)

There are some people who take music fandom to an almost obsessive compulsive level. Think of John Cusack’s character in High Fidelity. This is the gift for person in your life who organizes their record collection bi-monthly or the one who is annoyed that iTunes won’t let them arrange their library any which way they choose (be it alphabetical, chronological, or autobiographical). Music Listography is simply a book for lists of music, bands, shows, albums, and heartbreak. Any music loving list maker will get a lot of use out of the “Motivational Self Help Anthems”, or “Who’d You Like to a Backup Singer or Dancer For”.
