who didn’t love john cusack in high fidelty, the movie based on nick hornby’s brilliant novel? Rob, played by John is a record store owner and compulsive list maker, who recounts his top five breakups throughout the film, including the one in progress. i think we all have ‘breakup songs’, am i right? ones that rip your heart right out the second they unexpectedly land on your radio station. ugh. a lot of my breakup songs initially came from vinyl, or for that matter a couple of 8-tracks, but let’s not go there. i still really love collecting vinyl — there’s nothing like that swell of the heart (and nostalgia) when you come upon an oldie but a goodie that just can’t be passed up. i recently shared kate koeppel’s cool record dividers, so if you’re a real collector, you might have a look at those. in the meantime, got any classic vinyl in your collection? what’s your favorite? mine’s roxy music’s avalon. best, most romantic record ever.
