It's very infrequent that I borrow an (audio)book from the library and, upon finishing it, rush to buy a hard copy just so I can have such a beautiful thing on my shelves. This has been one of those times. Listening to Tweedy talk about these 50 songs is like the best radio show imaginable, mixing music criticism, broader philosophy, and personal anecdote deftly. (The songs themselves aren't there but the publisher did put out a playlist on at least one of the major streaming services.)

Jeff Tweedy, frontman and songwriter for Wilco, demonstrates to readers in this wonderful, inspirational, short book just how the process of songwriting works. This book focuses on the process of songcraft, and the joy of creation, and is full of helpful exercises and advice. It's also a fascinating read to understand the mind of one of the best songwriters of the last twenty years or so.

New York Times bestselling author and Wilco front man, Jeff Tweedy is back with another fun music inspired journey. Tweedy shares the fifty songs that have impacted his life the most, for better or for worse. He’s very clear that these aren’t what he considers the best fifty songs of all time, that is too daunting of a list to try. Rather this compilation of songs represents moments in his life where the song is crucial to the memory. From childhood to his wedding, music has been involved in every aspect of his life and these fifty songs highlight some important and unforgettable moments. Fantastically narrated by the legend himself, Tweedy’ s charisma shines throughout the recording. He shares the experiences behind each song and how it impacted his own relationship with music and song-writing. Featuring an eclectic list of songs by Otis Redding, Billie Eilish, Deep Purple, The Rolling Stones, and many others; this list is fresh and surprising. Part memoir, part music appreciation, and all-around joy; World Within a Song is a fantastic listen, that will have listeners pausing the audiobook to listen to the many songs referenced. – Erin Cataldi… (mere)

Jee Tweedy è un amico musicista che ti accompagna in un viaggio nelle sue idee e nelle sue abitudini di scrittura musicale, con tanto di esercizi pratici e qualche spunto motivazionale. Non male, poteva essere più tecnico, poteva essere più aneddotico/autobiografico (ma Tweedy ha anche scritto altro sulla sua esperienza con i Wilco). Lettura piacevole, non credo però cambierà la vita ad alcun aspirante songwriter.
