1000 Songs To Change Your Life
Music is everywhere we turn, unavoidable and inescapable. It provides a soundtrack for adolescence and adulthood, Saturday nights and Sunday mornings, relationships and break-ups, lives and deaths. Its simple ubiquity makes it the cultural air that we breathe. 1000 Songs to Change Your Life isn't designed to be a buyers' guide, a shopping list of the best songs you've ever or never heard. Instead, it's a celebration of music: its power and its fragility, its beauty and its brilliance, its limitless variety and its profound importance. Within these pages, musicians and writers discuss everything from sex to heartbreak, operatic villains to rock in the movies, folk clubs to nightclubs and Britten to Britney. It's a book about what music does to us, and why.
