You Give Love a Bad Nameby Danny (edt) Cassidy
Synopses & Reviews
Lyrical Reflections on Breaking Up—and Moving On—from the Brightest Stars of Pop Music
This heartfelt collection of poetry extends a helping hand to anyone coping with a broken heart, a cheating lover, a cold-hearted snake, or worse. Let the words of pop poets gently guide you through the five stages of grief: denial (“Is She Really Going Out with Him?” by Joe Jackson); anger (I Hate Myself for Loving You” by Joan Jett); bargaining (If Ever You’re in My Arms Again” by Peabo Bryson); depression (“Alone” by Heart); and acceptance (Goodbye to You” by Scandal).
Also included are classic works by The Bee Gees, Paula Abdul, Air Supply, The Carpenters, Pat Benatar, and many, many others!
Breaking up is hard to do - and when a relationship turns sour, nothing provides more comfort than the cheesy pop hits of the '70s and '80s. Just as Quirk's "I Can't Fight This Feeling" was an anthology of classic love poetry, "You Give Love a Bad Name" features poetic writings on breaking up - and moving on - from The Bee Gees, Michael Bolton, Pat Benatar, Hall and Oates, and many others. Packaged in an elegant hardcover volume with a deluxe ribbon marker, it's the perfect gift for anyone seeking to mend a broken heart. Includes these timeless classics: - Is She Really Going Out with Him? - Joe Jackson - She's Gone - Hall and Oates - Cold Hearted - Paula Abdul - Alone - Heart - Goodbye to You - Scandal
You Give Love a Bad Name: Timeless Poems of Tainted Love from the Pop Hits of the '70s and '80s features poetic writings on breaking up--and moving on--from The Bee Gees, Pat Benatar, Michael Bolton, Hall and Oates, and many more.
