Anatomy of a Song: The Oral History of 45 Iconic Hits That Changed Rock, R&B and Pop by Marc Myers

I loved this stroll though  Rock & Roll history.  The history of each song is told by the people that created it which is a perspective you rarely get to see.  Chart topping songs by The Rolling Stones, Elvis, The Dixie Cups, Cyndi Lauper and Elvis Costello  along with many others.  Each song is placed in it’s correct historical context and then all the people available talk about their role in making a hit song.  A great look at what goes into the music we listen to and a new perspective on our old favorites.
