Love is a Mix Tape, Rob Sheffield
“Every mix tape tells a story. Put them together, and they add up to the story of a life.” There’s a lot I miss about the nineties. It was an open, free time of possibilities, changes we thought were permanent. There is nowhere else I could imagine wanting to be beside here in this car, with this girl, on this road, listening to this song. If she breaks my heart, no matter what hell she puts me through, I can say it was worth it, just because of right now. Obscure references to the 70’s pop culture and music through the 90’s. The death of Kurt Cobain and how Rob handles it. About Cobain’s music- hear a boy trying to scare the darkness away. Wife’s sudden death – pulmonary embolism. Their relationship and how he dealt with it was heartfelt…he managed the pain through music. Old songs bring memories, new songs, new memories the good and the bad. How music brings people together. Recovery.
