Présentation de l'éditeur

An addictively readable, encyclopedic history of pop music in chapters as short and adrenaline-fueled as the best pop songs themselves.


As much fun to argue with as to quote, Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! is a monumental work of musical history, tracing the story of pop music through individual songs, bands, musical scenes, and styles from Bill Haley and the Comets’ “Rock around the Clock” (1954) to Beyoncé’s first megahit, “Crazy in Love” (2003). It covers the birth of rock, soul, R&B, punk, hip hop, indie, house, techno, and more, and it will remind you why you fell in love with pop music in the first place.

Bob Stanley—musician, music critic, and unabashed fan—recounts the progression from the Beach Boys to the Pet Shop Boys to the Beastie Boys; explores what connects doo wop to the sock hop; and reveals how technological changes have affected pop production. Working with a broad definition of “pop”—one that includes country and metal, disco and Dylan, skiffle and glam—Stanley teases out the connections and tensions that animate the pop charts and argues that the charts are vital social history.


Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! is like the world’s best and most eclectic jukebox in book form. All the hits are here: the Monkees, Metallica, Patsy Cline, Patti Smith, new wave, New Order, “It’s the Same Old Song,” The Song Remains the Same, Aretha, Bowie, Madonna, Prince, Sgt. Pepper, A Tribe Called Quest, the Big Bopper, Fleetwood Mac, “Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini,” Bikini Kill, the Kinks, Mick Jagger, Michael Jackson, Jay-Z, and on and on and on. This book will have you reaching for your records (or CDs or MP3s) and discovering countless others.


For anyone who has ever thrilled to the opening chord of the Beatles’ “A Hard Day’s Night” or fallen crazy in love for Beyoncé, Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! is a vital guide to the rich soundtrack of the second half of the twentieth century.

Par S Riaz - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
It is surely no coincidence that the title of this book comes from one of the most exuberant and joyful pop records ever made, because this is certainly written with boundless enthusiasm and a real love of music, which shines through. In five parts, the author takes you on the journey of popular music from 1952 until the early 1990's. The book begins with the first UK singles chart, the advent of the 45 and early rock 'n' roll. In the first part the author looks at the importance of skiffle, Larry Parnes and fledging British rock, Joe Meek, Phil Spector, the Brill Building and Elvis, among others.

Generally, each part of the book concentrates on a decade - the fifties, sixties, seventies, eighties and the start of the nineties. I have to admit that I found the first half of the book the most interesting, but that probably just reflects my musical tastes. However, whether you are a fan of the Beatles, Dylan, Motown, Glam Rock, Punk, Britpop or anything in between, they are all covered. Although the author obviously cannot give detailed biographies of every artist involved in popular music, he puts bands and styles of music in context and assesses their legacy. Also, despite the huge time period and amount of musical styles and bands covered, there is an abundance of interesting and funny stories, which bring each section to life. This is a book that you will be quoting from for some time if you read it and I cannot think of a better gift for a music lover. Considering the task that the author set himself, this is a magnificent achievement.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Read it. And the listen to it. 22 janvier 2014
Par Matthew Campbell - Publié sur Amazon.com

The charm of this book is its complete lack of snobbery. That the author can take as much joy from the Archies as from Hendrix.
The joy of the book is in the listening. Where Stanley almost beseeches us to check out, for one example amongst many, the Deep Soul tracks that he obviously worships.
And the reason that you should shell out the cash for this book is simple: The love of modern pop music.
A real and true treasure. Thank you Bob Stanley - your book is a diamond!

The author, Bob Stanley, besides being part of one of the best bands of the last 20 years, Saint Etienne, has written one of the best books about pop music in the last 20 years. That the breadth of the subject covered is included in one volume is a triumph of his writing, organization and editing. This is a book you will keep going back to.
This is a history from Stanley's personal point of view, and there will be quibbling about his opinions and who he left out. Simon and Garfunkel, Joni Mitchell, and Steely Dan are all sort of quickly dismissed, while he devotes 2 chapters to ABBA and the Bee Gees. Some artists are barely mentioned (Nyro and Drake). Mostly, he is right on. In brief comments, he lifts up both The Association and Slowdive, and says Morrissey is the best lyricist Great Britain has produced. Hurray.
All facets of pop music are covered in the book, from shoegazing to house, from British folk to Philly Soul. This is an incredible one-stop history and a real achievement. Great work, Bob.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hail, Trans-Atlantic! 21 novembre 2013
Par Quiet Wyatt - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
It comes as no surprise that one of the trio who have made 25 years' worth of fantastic music under the name Saint Etienne has turned out to be an adept chronicler of 60+ years of pop music. His record collection must be staggering. This is a long but breezy book, equally suited for reading start-to-finish or dipping in to selected eras at will. It's largely chronological, with side-trips to discuss genres, fads, and individual artists at appropriate points. I don't agree with every pronouncement Stanley makes about certain bands and artists, but I'm glad he makes them -- this is an *opinionated* stroll through pop history, not a dry timeline.

I especially appreciate the way he hops back and forth across the Atlantic as rock and pop have done over time; I've read many books with either British or American focuses, but never one that tried to make sense of how the balance has shifted between them like this one does. I also applaud Stanley for paying necessary attention to the role of disco / dance / techno music, which is so often ignored or posited as antithetical to rock music when it's a vital part of its DNA.

"Yeah Yeah Yeah" takes us from the birth of rock in the 1950s up to about the year 2000, where Stanley draws a line and claims that download culture is fundamentally different than the "Top of the Pops"/"American Bandstand" chart-driven era. I 60% agree with him and 40% think this line is a little arbitrary... but at 750 pages as it is, he had to stop writing somewhere! I look forward to Volume 2 ("Meh Meh Meh"?) when the dust settles on the forecast Death of the Music Industry (TM).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 It's all here and a great read too 16 juin 2014
Par Geoffrey Buckett - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Stanley surprised me by being on top of the music and a perceptive social observer at once giving depth to the various changes in Pop over time. He holds the various threads together to give a cohesive theme while delighting with "by the way" notes at the end of chapters and personal opinions which I came to like. Above all he is an adept writer with an eye for metaphor which is at times wonderful - "it sounded like music trapped in a bottle for 20 years then released as gas". It's a great read.
