The Life of a Song

Author(s): Jan Dalley; David Cheal

Music Biography

When great songs have been written and released, they often take on a life of their own, reshaped and re-imagined. The Life Of A Song is a compilation of weekly columns written £or FT Weekend, containing the biographies of 50 songs that have been born, reborn, sometimes hideously mangled, but often reinvigorated by new generations of artists. Here you will find songs that shook the world, songs that heralded the birth of a new musical movement, songs that made the journey from soul to punk and from heavy rock to hip-hop, songs that have been used - and abused-by politicians, and even a song that is right now speeding through space Book jacket.
