Présentation de l'éditeur
Get ready for the songs that will change your life.
Put on your headphones, sit back, and let 1001 Songs You Must Hear Before You Die guide you through nearly a century of music.
It will bring you an inspiring selection of some of the greatest recordings ever made, and classics which make up the foundation of popular music.
From Tin Pan Alley to the Brill Building, from Bob Dylan to Kurt Cobain, from Joni Mitchell to Amy Winehouse, gifted songwriters have crafted a cherished body of music that has become part of our lives.
Imagine the Fifties without the magical clamour of ''Hound Dog'', the seventies without the anthemic ''Le Freak'' and ''Anarchy in the UK'', or the Noughties without the leftfield pop music of ''Toxic'' or ''Crazy''.
This music mirrors the times, reflecting society at large, mapping our own highs and lows, helping us forget our problems and dance til dawn.
Each entry in this wonderfully browsable book tells the story of a great song. Find out:
- What inspired the songwriter
- What makes the track so enduring
- Which songs it influenced in turn
- Which cover version to listen out for (or avoid!)
You'll also pick up a wealth of trivia along the way. Whose gravestone inspired Phil Spectorís first hit? And when did Christina Aguilera join forces with the Moon People? Read on and find out.
If you love your music, you need 1001 Songs You Must Hear Before You Die in your life.
