Product description

When times are particularly difficult, and you are likely to slip into despair, some of the greatest pop songs can provide true comfort to make it through the pain. The problem with advice in general is that we often don't take it. The great thing about advice songs is that you can kick back and listen to someone else coach you through a tough situation while rocking out at the same time.

This wonderful book lists 250 of the best pop songs for those times that solid life advice is needed. The songs represent all popular music styles from the last fifty years, from rock to folk, and from punk to hip hop.

There are for example many times in which the three words "let it be" are words of wisdom. Although the lyrics may have originally been written in reference to interpersonal difficulties within the Beatles, the song does possess a universality that makes "Let It Be" one of the great advice pop songs of all time.

Other famous pop music advice to live by:

"You Can't Always Get What You Want" by The Rolling Stones
"If You Love Somebody, Set Them Free" by Sting
"Don't Worry, Be Happy" by Bobby McFerrin
"Always Look on the Bright Side of Life" by Eric Idle

Don't Eat the Yellow Snow (Frank Zappa) is a collection of all the famous advice songs and many surprises as well. It gives the reader the song titles, painted by hand by the designer, and a striking quote from the song lyrics as well as indices on artist and themes.

This well produced, iconic looking album of words of wisdom from pop music is the perfect gift for music lovers of all ages.
