Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

iPods and MP3 players have changed the way we listen to music: itandrsquo;s all about songs rather than albums, and making your own compilations. This is the first music guide that gets it: a book of 500 playlists, each of them packed with great music to rip or download. It features artists from Marvin Gaye to Nick Cave, Bjandouml;rk to Manu Chao, Rufus Wainwright to Thelonious Monk, Frank Sinatra to Franz Ferdinand, genres from Britpop to Krautrock, dub to Motown, bebop to bhangra, punk to drumandrsquo;nandrsquo;bass, fado to gangsta rap, and themes including Broken hearts, motoring music, protest songs, and covers that beat the originals. Packed with quirks and silliness including singing drummers, aliens, chickens and insects, drinking songs, and even music raved about in Murakami novels.

Synopsis:

The 500 Rough Guide Book of Playlists are recommendations of ten songs (sometimes a couple more, sometimes a couple less), covering artists (Rufus Wainwright to Thelonius Monk, Al Green to Manu Chao, Glenn Gould to Julie Andrews), genres (Bebop Classics to Reggae Toasters to Punk Originals to Hot Club jazz), songs (10 best Dylan covers; 8 classic versions of Summertime; 10 love songs that dont cloy), quirks and silliness (Songs about Chickens and Insects; Who let the frogs out?; Big Pizza Pie crooners; Take this Job and Shove it!). Theres even a literary edge with playlists like 10 songs raved about in Murakami novels.Each of the Playlists has a nugget about the song (why you want it on your iPod), and a listings of where its from (remember CDs?).
