Description

If The Kinks' "Waterloo Sunset" had been released under its original title, "Liverpool Sunset", would it have had the same impact? Was "Greensleeves" really written by Henry VIII? And how did The White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army" become globally adopted as a football chant?


Like its bestselling predecessor, THE LIFE OF A SONG VOLUME 2 contains the stories of 50 songs, originally published in FT Weekend, that unearth each song's biography. These are also the stories of how songs took on new life following their release: how, for instance, "Wild Thing" helped launch the career of Jimi Hendrix in America. Packed with intriguing factoids, these bite-sized essays will delight music lovers and send you scurrying back to listen to the songs in all their beauty and mystery.
