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.

Auch der Allerletzte wird es inzwischen bemerkt haben: Wir sind wir von Zombies umzingelt! Unzählige Filme und Serien handeln von ihnen, sie glotzen uns von Postern und Plakatwänden aus an und sind die beste Notlösung, wenn jemandem wieder mal kein Halloween-Kostüm einfällt. Doch wie wird man sie eigentlich wieder los? Wie tötet man Untote? Der allgemein bekannte, klassische Weg ist das Abtrennen des Kopfes vom Körper, die Zerstörung des Gehirns. Doch warum so technisch, wenn es auch kreativer geht? 101 Arten, einen Zombie zu töten ist das perfekte Geschenk für alle Zombieverrückten und Fans von Gruselgeschichten, denen "Kopf abhacken" einfach zu langweilig ist.

Find out why Chet Atkins had a Gretsch guitar named after him, why The Who's John Entwistle called his favourite guitar "Frankenstein", and how John Lennon elevated the Rickenbacker 325 to one of the most desirable guitar brands of the 1960's. 1001 Guitars to Dream of Playing Before Your Die showcases the greatest instruments from across the globe: some are of historical or cultural significance and some were made famous by well-known musicians; others are included as examples of technological breakthroughs, innovative design or extraordinary sound quality. From the earliest models produced by Belchior Dias in the sixteenth century to the latest Gibson "Robot" series of guitars with computer-controlled self-tuning capabilities and onboard sound-processing features, 1001 Guitars to Dream of Playing Before Your Die tells the fascinating stories behind the creation of each one. All the classic names are here - Fender, Roland, Martin, Gretsch and Rickenbacker - as well as important Japanise brands, such as Ibanez, Yamaha and Teisco; European classics of the 1960's including Burns, Hagstrom, Eko and Hofner; obscure models from behind the "Iron Curtain", such as Defil, Aelita, Resonet and Musima; and present-day oil-can guitars built in South Africa. Never before have so many guitars been profiled within a single illustrated volume. A striking colour photograph of each guitar is accompanied by specification details and illuminating text that traces the guitar's history and reveals which famous musicians like to play the instrument and on what albums it can be heard.

America’s Songs III: Rock! picks up in 1953 where America’s Songs II left off, describing the artistic and cultural impact of the rock ’n’ roll era on America’s songs and songwriters, recording artists and bands, music publishers and record labels, and the all-important consuming audience. The Introduction presents the background story, discussing the 1945-1952 period and focusing on the key songs from the genres of jump blues, rhythm ’n’ blues, country music, bluegrass, and folk that combined to form rock ‘n’ roll. From there, the author selects a handful of songs from each subsequent year, up through 2015, listed chronologically and organized by decade. As with its two preceding companions, America’s Songs III highlights the most important songs of each year with separate entries. More than 300 songs are analyzed in terms of importance—both musically and historically—and weighted by how they defined an era, an artist, a genre, or an underground movement. Written by known rock historian and former ASCAP award winner Bruce Pollock, America’s Songs III: Rock! relays the stories behind America’s musical history.
