Pressestimmen

Bob Stanley loves and finds surprising connections between a thousand kinds of pop. He makes me want to run to the nearest record store and move in. --Stephin Merritt of the Magnetic Fields"

Kurzbeschreibung

An addictively readable, encyclopedic history of pop music in chapters as short and adrenaline-fueled as the best pop songs themselves.


As much fun to argue with as to quote, Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! is a monumental work of musical history, tracing the story of pop music through individual songs, bands, musical scenes, and styles from Bill Haley and the Comets’ “Rock around the Clock” (1954) to Beyoncé’s first megahit, “Crazy in Love” (2003). It covers the birth of rock, soul, R&B, punk, hip hop, indie, house, techno, and more, and it will remind you why you fell in love with pop music in the first place.

Bob Stanley—musician, music critic, and unabashed fan—recounts the progression from the Beach Boys to the Pet Shop Boys to the Beastie Boys; explores what connects doo wop to the sock hop; and reveals how technological changes have affected pop production. Working with a broad definition of “pop”—one that includes country and metal, disco and Dylan, skiffle and glam—Stanley teases out the connections and tensions that animate the pop charts and argues that the charts are vital social history.


Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! is like the world’s best and most eclectic jukebox in book form. All the hits are here: the Monkees, Metallica, Patsy Cline, Patti Smith, new wave, New Order, “It’s the Same Old Song,” The Song Remains the Same, Aretha, Bowie, Madonna, Prince, Sgt. Pepper, A Tribe Called Quest, the Big Bopper, Fleetwood Mac, “Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini,” Bikini Kill, the Kinks, Mick Jagger, Michael Jackson, Jay-Z, and on and on and on. This book will have you reaching for your records (or CDs or MP3s) and discovering countless others.


For anyone who has ever thrilled to the opening chord of the Beatles’ “A Hard Day’s Night” or fallen crazy in love for Beyoncé, Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! is a vital guide to the rich soundtrack of the second half of the twentieth century.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Yeah Yeah Yeah 16. September 2013
Von S Riaz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
It is surely no coincidence that the title of this book comes from one of the most exuberant and joyful pop records ever made, because this is certainly written with boundless enthusiasm and a real love of music, which shines through. In five parts, the author takes you on the journey of popular music from 1952 until the early 1990's. The book begins with the first UK singles chart, the advent of the 45 and early rock 'n' roll. In the first part the author looks at the importance of skiffle, Larry Parnes and fledging British rock, Joe Meek, Phil Spector, the Brill Building and Elvis, among others.

Generally, each part of the book concentrates on a decade - the fifties, sixties, seventies, eighties and the start of the nineties. I have to admit that I found the first half of the book the most interesting, but that probably just reflects my musical tastes. However, whether you are a fan of the Beatles, Dylan, Motown, Glam Rock, Punk, Britpop or anything in between, they are all covered. Although the author obviously cannot give detailed biographies of every artist involved in popular music, he puts bands and styles of music in context and assesses their legacy. Also, despite the huge time period and amount of musical styles and bands covered, there is an abundance of interesting and funny stories, which bring each section to life. This is a book that you will be quoting from for some time if you read it and I cannot think of a better gift for a music lover. Considering the task that the author set himself, this is a magnificent achievement.

5.0 von 5 Sternen the amazing bob stanley 22. Oktober 2013
Von daniel singer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
The author, Bob Stanley, besides being part of one of the best bands of the last 20 years, Saint Etienne, has written one of the best books about pop music in the last 20 years. That the breadth of the subject covered is included in one volume is a triumph of his writing, organization and editing. This is a book you will keep going back to.
This is a history from Stanley's personal point of view, and there will be quibbling about his opinions and who he left out. Simon and Garfunkel, Joni Mitchell, and Steely Dan are all sort of quickly dismissed, while he devotes 2 chapters to ABBA and the Bee Gees. Some artists are barely mentioned (Nyro and Drake). Mostly, he is right on. In brief comments, he lifts up both The Association and Slowdive, and says Morrissey is the best lyricist Great Britain has produced. Hurray.
All facets of pop music are covered in the book, from shoegazing to house, from British folk to Philly Soul. This is an incredible one-stop history and a real achievement. Great work, Bob.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Much, Much Needed 4. April 2014
Von Ashley Lambert-Maberly - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
After reading How the Beatles Destroyed Rock and Roll, I was champing at the bit for a book which covered what happened next!

I'm reading this one very, very slowly ... every time he mentions an artist or song I'm unfamiliar with, which happens very, very often, it's off to the Internet for a listen. I've discovered more amazing music in the last few weeks than in the last few years. It's been an amazing ride.

I'm actually only 35% of the way through, but have no reason to believe that the fine writing, rich detail, unexpected surprises, and deft descriptions would not continue. His ability to conjure up sounds with words rivals the best food writers ability to do the same with taste: "Next came a muted electric piano that sounded like it was being played in a haunted house, the soft tribal thud of a bass drum suggesting smoke signals ... "

This is a remarkable book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen If you love pop music, I think you'll love this book. 5. Februar 2014
Von speedtripledave - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is beautifully written. Bob Stanley is a rare person in that he both writes critically about music and makes it, very successfully. He talks it AND walks it.
As well as bringing his years of hands-on experience to the project, he writes fluently and with great style. He combines critical analysis with historical narrative as well as anyone I've ever read on the broad topic of pop music. His opinions rest lightly on the page. I think you could disagree with him in conversation and enjoy a good-humoured debate.
I saw a couple of daft factual errors which I wish had been picked up by his editor. However, I wasn't looking for them and they weren't major enough to derail the topic.
I take most critics' opinions with a huge lump of rock salt; my theory being that having experience as a competent practitioner gives your opinions a large dose of credibility. Bob Stanley writes affectionately, knowledgeably and with flair. I have enjoyed every page and look forward to reading more of his work.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Read it. And the listen to it. 22. Januar 2014
Von Matthew Campbell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The charm of this book is its complete lack of snobbery. That the author can take as much joy from the Archies as from Hendrix.
The joy of the book is in the listening. Where Stanley almost beseeches us to check out, for one example amongst many, the Deep Soul tracks that he obviously worships.
And the reason that you should shell out the cash for this book is simple: The love of modern pop music.
A real and true treasure. Thank you Bob Stanley - your book is a diamond!
