这本名为《31 Songs》散文集,是英国现代作家尼克·宏比(Nick Hornby)自选的31首改变他一生的歌曲,2003年搭配其同名双CD音乐合辑发行。作为一位著名的作家和乐评人,尼克·宏比给人们的感觉和美国的著名编剧、导演和乐评人卡梅隆·克罗(Cameron Crowe,《几近成名》《香草天空》《伊丽莎白小镇》)很相似,都喜欢讲述青春迷惘和寻找方向的故事,都深受当代流行文化的浸淫,都有极佳的音乐品位和独立于世的生活态度。但跟克罗的美国摇滚情结不同的是,尼克·宏比深谙现代年轻人的生活节奏,并以精湛的英式幽默掳获读者的心。

不只是关於音乐,同时更是关於尼克宏比、关於我们、关於生活著的一本书。
尼克宏比以散文的笔法,时而温暖,时而英式詼谐地诉说著生活里的音乐片断。
那些心碎的时刻、悲伤的时刻、欢乐的时刻、失意的时刻、做爱的时刻……歌曲们都一一见证,从未缺席。

说是31首歌,其实要宏比写个361首也无所谓──他对音乐和文字间的联繫,远超过所谓「评论」或者「音乐私日记」所能分野的区块种种;他毫不刻意试著客观、不摆出行家架子,将旋律、歌词透过自我生命经验,真诚而非关知识性质的一一坦述;宏比在所能触及的范围内仍旧旁徵博引,各样生命时刻与音乐性相关艺术介质娓娓相连,深入潜出,不只是因为他对於音乐的爱好,更试图辩证自我存在与透过单纯事物来观察人生百态而书写。

透过三十一首歌曲,以及特定音乐人物/专题的写作,串起人生中的每个环节;成长的经历、感情的波折、创作的心情、为人父的善感,全都以他的挚爱──流行音乐为核心,幅射出一层层生活的波光。宏比的音乐现身说法,并没有带著太多评论的味道,倒也不排除那些私心的观点,正如其在书中提到:「这本书并不企图要你和我分享那能听到一致东西的能力;换句话说,这不是乐评。我在这仅希望你能有等值的事物,那就是你曾花了很长的时间,去聆听音乐,且在其热情之中找到了共鸣。」。

本书不仅能够给和作者一样爱乐成痴之读者,寻得戚戚之感,也在文学可读本身超越了「音乐文字」的既定窠臼。即使不认同或不认识宏比的排行榜,他那幽默感与无可掩饰的爱乐感动仍显脱俗非常。

「机智,极富娱乐且动人。一则阐明流行音乐何以如此美好的宣言,一本美丽而重要的作品。」
──《週日快报》(Sunday Express)

「一本会刺激你去思索属於自己的『荒岛唱片』的佳作。」
──《Mojo》音乐杂誌

「洞见观瞻、有趣,把我眼泪都给逼出来了。」
──《週日电讯报》(Sunday Telegragh)

「一本热情守护著宏比的品味、写作与成就的作品。」
──《文艺评论》(Literary Review)

「一本述说聆听绝妙流行音乐之乐趣,以及那些具有不思议动听旋律的书……最亮眼的是宏比本人──其幽默的自省,无防卫的诚实。毫不费力得充满可读性,每个章节都提醒了我们,宏比是一个如此特别,善於观察人类行为的作家。」
──《Heat》娱乐週刊

「跟著宏比一起唱和吧!」
──《Arena》男性时尚杂誌

「閒话家常,毫无保留和诚恳的私密。」
──《Harpers&Queen》时尚杂誌

「充满啟发,引人发噱。」
──《滚石》杂誌(Rolling Stone)

「散文极品、巧夺天工的幽默,或一个人如何能如此写出自身感觉却让他人感同身受,举凡对以上感到兴趣的任何读者,理应都会爱上这本书。」
──《旧金山纪事报》(San Francisco Chronicle )

「传播了对於听见好歌时简单而刁嘴的兴味,一种难以掩饰的热情。」
──《Metro》生活杂誌

「一本机智的作品,涵括了一些极佳的批评论述。」
──《GQ》时尚杂誌

「注满了宽广的愉悦,具体而微的在散文里表达了宏比所喜爱的创作者们,在音乐上所做的贡献。他写得可真好。」
──《Time Out》音乐杂誌

「趣味横生、充满生气、极具可读性。不只是关於音乐……同时更是关於尼克宏比,关於我们,关於生活著的一本书。宏比创造了一大成就。」
──《旗帜晚报》(Evening Standard)



■作者简介

尼克宏比
英国知名小说家莎娣史密斯(Zadie Smith)是这么说尼克宏比的:「宏比篤信很棒的歌曲、很棒的书,还有,是的,很棒的足球比赛,都是巨大的能量。他是这么热衷於美好事物,说他是欧洲亲善大使也不为过。」现年四十九岁的他,毕业於剑桥大学,成长并居住於北伦敦,曾经是教师与记者,他的作家生涯从电视剧本开始,后来因为觉得「散文写太烂,乾脆写对白试试看」而写了小说,话虽如此,他第一本畅销书《足球热》(Fever Pitch)却意外的成为当年最叫好叫座的散文辑,获得「威廉希尔年度运动好书」(William Hill Sporting Book of The Year)。
一九九五年的《失恋排行榜》(High Fidelity),一九九八年的《非关男孩》(About A Boy)更让他成为英国最受欢迎的小说家。紧接著是极为成功的小说家人生,数部作品改拍成好莱坞电影。你手上的《三十一首歌》在二○○二年跨越大西洋,入围了「美国国家图书奖」(National Book Critics Circle Award)。

《31 Songs》内容提要
'I decided that I wanted to write a little book of essays about songs I loved ...Songs are what I listen to, almost to the exclusion of everything else.' In his first non-fiction work since "Fever Pitch", Nick Hornby writes about 31 songs that either have some great significance in his life - or are just songs that he loves. He discusses, among other things, guitar solos and losing your virginity to a Rod Stewart song and singers whose teeth whistle and the sort of music you hear in Body Shop. '

《31 Songs》编辑推荐与评论
Amazon.co.uk Review
There is nothing quite so incomprehensible as love: 31 Songs is Nick Hornby's account of a selection of the music that lives deep in his heart and it is beside the point that most of us would make radically different selections. He makes some useful distinctions--these are not songs he loves for their associations so much as particular songs through which he learned more about his capacity for loving songs in general. Along the way, he talks movingly and intelligently about other matters on which those songs impinge--his relationship with his autistic son, his limited but real capacity for spirituality--but the songs rather than Hornby and his life are his real subject. It would be almost impossible to read this book and not get caught up in at least some of Hornby's enthusiasms--where you read thrillers trying not to cheat by looking at the end, here you spend time hoping the discography will be as good as the rest of it, and of course it is. The book is a serious attempt to define what it is about rock and pop that speaks to us in ways other types of music might not; those who either do not share Hornby's tastes or who have more eclectic ones will find it a useful and enlightening explication of what rock and pop do. --Roz Kaveney --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review
Nick Hornby is in an enviable position. His back catalogue boasts Fever Pitch, a phenomenally successful debut work about life as an Arsenal supporter, which is about to filmed for the second time, as well as three popular novels, two of which are also movies. His publishers clearly think he has earned the right to indulge another of his passions in print: music. In 31 Songs Hornby writes short essays about the songs that have had an impact on his life. He is careful not simply to connect the tracks to specific moments, contending that the book should be about music rather than memories. Inevitably, however, any book that reflects the author's personal tastes is bound to be as much about the man as the subject. One wonders how he found 31 records to listen to, judging by his guide to reviewing music which rejects anything by anyone pretty, very old or very young, or with an intimidating name, among many other criteria. The choices that did pass such rigorous scrutiny to make it into Hornby's life and into the book are quite wide-ranging, if predominantly white. Hornby opens with Teenage Fanclub, before moving on to Bruce Springsteen's 'Thunder Road', the song he has listened to the most since its release in 1975. The author identifies with the singer's apparent message about finding fame - 'I'm getting out of here to win' - even if he does not share his background or context. Hornby also laments the way in which fame changes other people's attitudes, with critics who once used words such as 'fresh' and 'original' suddenly changing their opinions when the mainstream shows an interest. Perhaps the most peculiar choice is 'Puff, The Magic Dragon' by Gregory Isaacs. It is the only reggae track in the collection and, while the man known as 'The Cool Ruler' may be worthy of the honour, it is unlikely that many people would select his version of the popular children's song. And yet this is perhaps the most affecting of all the essays because it focuses on Hornby's autistic son, Danny. Danny can barely speak but he has developed a number of words/sounds for things that he cannot do without. Music ('goggo') is one of these essential items, and although his tastes are very narrow, formed and seemingly petrified at a very young age, Hornby is optimistic that music may help to connect his son to the world around him. Elsewhere in the book, Hornby makes the case for independent record shops, dancing despite being terminally English, and a new National Anthem (Ian Dury's 'Reasons To Be Cheerful, Part 3'). The music ranges from 'Needle In A Haystack' by The Velvelettes to the epic, industrial-strength noise of 'Frankie Teardop' by the delightfully named Suicide. The chances are that you will not recognize all of the songs, and the test will be how many Hornby will inspire you to seek out. He is an engaging writer, but this does sometimes feel like a handsomely packaged collection of Sunday supplement articles. The funniest thing in the book is Hornby's contention that because 'it is, if you like, an organic book' it costs more because organic things are always more expensive. If one can get past the price, and the breathtaking cheek of Hornby's justification for it, this is an always interesting, sometimes contentious, occasionally inspiring look at a man through the musical company he keeps.
