Soundtrack of an Epidemic: Songs about HIV/AIDS (2017)
Matthew J. Jones (Miami University)
Mixtape released as part of the Mixtape Series of the International Association for the Study of Popular Music, US Branch.
From the description:
"My playlist begins with observations about the existential crises that AIDS engenders: attenuated life, sickness, the devastation of particular subcultures, and changes in the ways we have thought about – or continue to think about – sex. It then invites you to meditate on individual lives impacted, lost, and remembered, before closing with an acknowledgment of the healing power of love."
