Description

In this work, one hundred of the best known, most popular, awesome and awful pop lyrics are given the Powerpoint treatment. They are deliberated and disseminated across the presentation platform. Each example is coupled with a presentation of staggering simplicity and bullet-point brilliance that cuts to the heart of the song. Hilarious pie charts, flow diagrams, checklists, graphs and graphics pinpoint the heart of every line. Poetic, comic, philosophical and farcical, here is an in-depth scrutiny of the most glorious, gratifying, grating and gruesome pop lyrics of the last 50 years.show more
