Loved this, Maggie. As a fan of cassette mixtapes of yesteryear, I still miss the joy of unfolding lyrics and creating my own inlay cards in blue ink. Also the aesthetic beauty of Walkman stereos, unspooled tapes and CD libraries across the years.

Music is the only magic that truly exists.

STFU with the mountain goats song!!! We have similar tastes and this makes me love your book even more. Cat Power singing Good Woman? πŸ’€

I'm on the boomer/gen x cusp and I don't know any of that music! But I like hearing about people I've never heard of because listening to the same songs for 5 decades can get boring. Some songs hold up, of course. Looking forward to the playlist!
