Shake Some Action
What are the greatest songs of all time? To make his determination, Steve Crawford listened to thousands of songs in a broad range of musical genres including pop, rap, alternative rock, country, punk rock, soul, western swing, jump blues, heavy metal, dance, and folk. His song choices range from 1939 to 2008 and include major international hits by top selling artists, one-hit wonders, and obscurities. The music may be sublime or silly, aggressive or reflective, but all of the songs represent why people love music - they make us sing or dance or laugh or cry and sometimes they become important parts of our lives. "Shake Some Action: The 318 Greatest Songs of All Time" includes historical notes on performers and songwriters, interesting trivia facts, and no small dosage of irreverent humor. Readers of this book will learn a little, laugh a little, and hopefully discover or rediscover music that they love.
