100 tales from music history to astonish, bewilder, and stupefy. This book is an interesting look at 100 songs that cover a very wide range of history from 1400 BC to 2007 AD. Most of the stories behind the songs are unfamiliar to even the most knowledgeable researcher. The book is full of trivia such as what member of the rock group Queen has a PhD in astrophysics? and who wrote the song "Happy Birthday to You?" Each story is told in two pages and is an easy read. I would recommend this book to any music history buff that wants to know the stories behind many popular songs.
The author is an award-winning documentary filmmaker, who's work has been seen on The History Channel and A&E networks. For videos and songs related to the book visit www.greateststoriesnevertold.com/musiclinks.
The back cover states "They're so good, you can't read just one!" And once you start reading this book, it will be hard to put down.
