What links Lead Belly, Lonnie Donegan and Black Betty? Whose gravestone inspired Phil Spector's first hit? And for which song did Johnny Rotten replace the singer from Def Leppard? The rich history of popular music is built on a foundation of classic songs. From Tin Pan Alley to the Brill Building, Bob Dylan to Kurt Cobain, and 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 clamor of "Tutti Frutti" and "Hound Dog" the Seventies without the anthemic "Le Freak" and "Anarchy in the UK" or the Noughties without the Leftfield pop of "Toxic" or "Crazy". This music mirrors the times, both reflecting society at large ("A Change is Gonna Come", "The Message") and mapping our own personal highs ("God Only Knows") or lows ("Hurt"). And from 'Saturday Night Fish Fry' to Saturday Night Fever, it has helped us simply forget our problems. 1001 Songs You Must Hear Before You Diepicks through nearly a century of music to bring you an inspiring selection of some of the greatest recordings ever made. 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 and which cover version to listen out for. You'll also pick up a wealth of fascinating trivia along the way.

I Wrote You A Song is a book that has been constructed like an album with twelve original songs written by Guy Simons that provides a sub-text for life’s journey. The author discusses the underlying theme of each song from a social context using autobiographical reflections, social observations and philosophical musings, intermingled with a large dose of satirical commentary, quirkiness and humour. The author invites readers to be inspired to find their true place in this world through twelve songs that take them on a journey of self-discovery and personal recollection. Covering topics of life, death, love, hate, joy, despair, health, sickness, hopes, fears, wealth and poverty, immerse yourself in an album unlike any other. Recall your own experiences within each song and reconnect to your past through subject headings that are actual popular song titles. Whether that is the “Start” or “The End” you are sure to find an affinity with the subject headings, and if you’re looking for “Good Vibrations” or the “Art of Dying” you will find it here. A prelude provides the insight prior to embarking on the journey through songs as diverse as “The New Elvis Presley”, “You Say You’re Leaving” to “Another Bad Day at the Office” and “Cyber Spaceman” culminating in the curtain raiser “I Wrote You a Song”. A coda followed by the encore brings the work to a close giving you a chance to confirm whether your soundtrack to this book mirrored the author’s, or whether you would have chosen alternate subject headings to align to your own personal experience. The author is a songwriter and he has written you a song.

Sehnsucht nach Stille - wie Christopher Knight 27 Jahre in der Wildnis lebte. Im Sommer 1986 begibt sich Christopher Knight auf einen Roadtrip von Massachusetts nach Maine und verschwindet in den Wäldern. 27 Jahre lang bleibt er dort, abgeschieden von der Welt, ohne menschlichen Kontakt, bis er wegen Diebstahls gefasst wird: Er hatte Essen geklaut. In einem einfachen Zelt überlebte Knight die härtesten Winter, weil er klug wie ein Eichhörnchen Vorräte gebunkert und alles darauf ausgerichtet hatte, nicht zu erfrieren. In den nahegelegenen Ferienhäusern versorgte er sich mit Lebensmitteln, Kleidung und Büchern und verstörte als unheimliches Phantom die Bewohner von North Pond. Der Journalist Michael Finkel hat das außergewöhnliche Leben des Chris Knight dokumentiert. Entstanden ist eine fesselnde Story, die den fundamentalen Fragen über ein gutes Leben nachgeht und das tief bewegende Porträt eines Mannes hinterlässt, der sich seinen Traum erfüllte: ein Leben in absoluter Stille.
