Summary
As much fun to argue with as to quote, Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! traces the story of pop music through individual songs, bands, musical scenes, and styles -- from Bill Haley and the Comets' "Rock around the Clock" (1954) to Beyoncé's first megahit, "Crazy in Love" (2003). It covers the birth of rock, soul, R&B, punk, hip hop, indie, house, techno, and more, and it will remind you why you fell in love with pop music in the first place. Bob Stanley -- musician, music critic, and unabashed fan -- recounts the progression from the Beach Boys to the Pet Shop Boys to the Beastie Boys; explores what connects doo wop to the sock hop; and reveals how technological changes have affected pop production. Working with a broad definition of "pop" -- one that includes country and metal, disco and Dylan, skiffle and glam -- Stanley teases out the connections and tensions that animate the pop charts and argues that the charts are vital social history
Summary
Everything you ever wanted to know about pop music but never thought to ask, delivered with wit -- and plenty of opinions. From long-time success stories like Simon & Garfunkel (they "looked as much fun as their undertaker name suggested") to one-hit wonders, this encyclopedic history covers about 60 years and multiple musical genres, like R&B, doo-wop, glam, grunge, disco, new wave, techno, and country. Some pieces are short and pithy, while others are a little more in-depth, but overall this addictive book is a must-read for fans of popular music of all stripes. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
