Well add back the deducted star for unearthing Don't gimme no Lip Child by Dave BerryGo Way from my Window by John Jacob Niles sounds like it's from 1664 not 1964La Boheme by Charles Aznavour consistent acknowledgement of great French music in this book which you know a lot of Anglo American rock writers patently don't doMas ue Nada by Sergio Mendesall the rest are pretty much shoo ins 150 pages of swingingnessThe 70s that very dubious follow up to the 60s get 200 pages My heart sank a little at this but i persevered and discovered disco Well I discovered that some disco stuff which I never heard before sounds wonderful egLove hangover by Diana RossYou Make Me Feel by Sylvesteralso so nice to see some personal favourites in here 54 46 That's my Number by toots the MaytalsBlackwater Side by Anne Briggs she came from NottinghamA Nickel and a Nail by O V WrightCocaine in my Brain by DillingerRiver Song by Dennis WilsonSolid Air by John MartynShot by Both Sides by Magazine could be my all time favourite singleand I'd never heard Gloria by Patti Smith before so thanks for that This whole enterprise started to sag a little bit in the 80s 190 pages for me I mean there were so many chunky good time semidemimetally middle of the roadie bands that who could bother to sort them out ? Rush Def Leppard ZZ Top Iron Maiden Bon Jovi The Cult Slayer The Triffids INXS Mudhoney on and on and on all those white boys with guitars it's just a big blurry noise to me I don't really like rock music It's monotonousBut there were delights along the way such as the insane Via Con me by Paolo Conte and the two minutes of bliss called Please Don't Touch by Motorhead Girlschool and the gorgeous Cattle Cane by the Go Betweens You can't have a whole decade of popular music without a shed load of gems as well as a shed load of landfill but this book's selection of the 80s mostly bored meThe 90s gets 150 pages and it was good to see the coverage of non Anglo American stuff coming on strong Dylan's Blind Willie McTell shares an opposite page to Body Count's Cop Killer as does Snoop Doggy Doggy and Cheb Khaled Honestly it's difficult to level accusations of complete shitness against this 90s stuff as one might about a lot of the 80s They even found room for Ching Soortukchuleringing Yryzy by Huun Huur Tu Check page 704 if you don't believe me2000 to 2009 gets 112 pages and this was not so interesting for me i noticed that an awful lot of the songs in this decade were written by a committee who had based it on a riff from a previous song I think this is called either post modernism or unoriginality But anyway for a music fan like me this was a long and exhilarating trek through the last 60 years and I recommend it unreservedly The writing is nice not scintillating but not annoying and there are a lot lot lot of pix It really tries its best and there is absolutely no J M Coetzee or Ian McEwan in here which was the mistake they made with the 1001 Books volumeAnd yes it does say that Lonnie Donegan wrote Rock Island Line
