Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

The fascinating stories behind more than a thousand of the author's favorite songs from the last 50 years are explored in this entertaining collection. Intriguing background and biographical information on each song and its artist--from Elvis and Fatboy Slim to Leonard Cohen and Pulp--is included alongside more than 400 rare, full-color photographs of the musicians. Keeping in line with the way that iPods and other portable mp3 players have changed the way people listen to music--with personalized playlists and mixes just a few clicks away--this collection places more emphasis on specific songs than entire albums. The eclectic mix of profiled songs are randomly ordered, similar to a playlist, widening listeners' horizons while educating them on a variety of styles and artists.

Includes index.
