There's something nice about walking into a bookstore one rainy night with Badly Drawn Boy's song "You Were Right" playing on your headphones (if only because it's the first song on the first playlist that comes up when you press Play on your iPod these days), noticing that a revised edition of Nick Hornby's Songbook is finally in paperback, flipping to the back of the book, and seeing that among the tracks in a new list of Hornby's favorite songs from 2002-2003 is...Badly Drawn Boy's "You Were Right." Why, it's almost enough to make you cry.
