Existing books on the analysis of popular music focus on theory and methodology and normally discuss parts of songs briefly as examples. In this book the obverse is true: songs take centre stage. The authors analyse them from a variety of theoretical positions, compare their different hearings and discuss the ways in which they make sense of specific songs. By concentrating on 13 well-known and recent songs, this book offers some model analyses that can be studied at home or used in seminars and classrooms for students of popular music at all academic levels.Kesha gulps the remainder of her dr pepper, puts her lyrics on the stand, puts on the headphones and takes a deep breath. *** a#39;Wow Wow Wow! this totally blows me away! youa#39;re the shit, luke! this is definitely gonna be a hit.
