Book review

Ever hear the sound of a favorite song and find yourself flooded with nostalgia? Find out more about those tunes that have given us such pleasure. Uncover the real background -- the fascinating and fun tidbits that give new meaning to your musical memory. Did you know that the woman who composed "Heartbreak Hotel" told Elvis, "You need a million-seller, and I'm going to write it for you"? See what inspired James Taylor's "Fire and Rain", what personal incidents lay behind Alanis Morrisette's "You Oughta Know", and what 60s pop hit George Harrison's "My Sweet Lord" imitates note for note. Examine the oblique references to the Vietnam War that Jimmy Webb slipped into the Glen Campbell-recorded "Galveston". And though Don McLean refuses to explain the lyrics of "American Pie", he will slyly admit that the song means "I don't have to work if I don't want to". Other songs examined include: "Born in the USA", "Every Breath You Take", "Hoed California", "Blue Suede Shoes", "House of the Rising Sun", "Biko", and lots, lots more. The special treasury of photos of album covers, song release dates, and chart positions will be a music lover's dream.
