There's a recipe for having the best vacation ever: perfect summer jam + perfect summer read = beach blanket bliss. This guide will help you match the song you'll be playing on repeat till Labor Day with the book you won't be able to put down.
My book ends with a list of the top 100 saddest songs, which stands as a culmination of the book as a whole. In it rests the sum of the hundreds of hours I spent listening to the saddest music in the world. I pulled from all genres--jazz, rock, classical, country, etc.--and across six centuries.
