“With around 170 lyricists on offer, the book makes its share of worthwhile rediscoveries . . . That’s the fun of Reading Lyrics. Readers can hum along with songs they know, while songs they don’t will have them hurrying off to the nearest music megastore.” 
The New York Times Book Review 

Reading Lyrics defies literary categorization. It’s reference work. It’s a singalong book. It’s a shadow history of taste and mores over much of the past century. It’s a valentine to a now-vanished artistic craft. And it’s an act of fond provocation.”
—The Boston Globe
“This wondrous and magical concoction is highly recommended.”
—The Wall Street Journal

“Both a groundbreaking social document and its own pleasure dome. Its 706 pages confirm the accomplishments of the greats, but they also provide surprises.” 
The New Yorker 

“Sparklingly entertaining, Reading Lyrics exalts the lyrical sublimity of such cunning wordsmiths as Porter, Gershwin, and Coward.” 
Vanity Fair

“This music is an amazing art form; it’s a substantial cultural phenomenon.”

“What joy! No sooner do the lyrics appear before one’s eyes than reading gives way to song.”
Billboard Magazine

“One of the finest collections of words there is. To quote P.G. Wodehouse, ‘And I wish someday I could find my way/To the land where the good songs go.’ That land is Reading Lyrics. ‘S wonderful.”


The first and only anthology to bring together the best of one of this century's most enduring art forms: the popular song lyric. More than a thousand of the century's finest lyrics.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Pretty great resource. Huge number of influential songs. 20. Februar 2016
Von 3rd Day Believer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I write songs for fun and zero profit. For me, this book is pretty great. I didn't even know such a resource existed until I Googled "best book of song lyrics." It's hard to imagine a better one. Of course much is missing, as some reviewers note. But what's here is amazing—not in the sense of great poetry. It really is a little stark, how unimpressive some of these famous lyrics are, absent the supporting beat and melody. But after all, lyrics integrate with these, and we’re not talking some Shakespeare song interlude. I only wish the book had a sewn binding, because after all, it is a musical reference. But few books do nowadays. The authors’ brief introductions are worth reading. If the art of popular song interests you, by all means grab a copy.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Gem 20. Juli 2014
Von D. B. Wright - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This book is a must for anyone who loves lyrics. While it only has submissions up to the fifties, it contains the classic-popular song lyrics that have become part of our lives and culture. For each lyricist you are treated to some of their history and accomplishment. You will be very surprised as to how many very successful song writers there are out there that you never knew their names. Great book to just have out for people to peruse through.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Compendium of Popular Song Lyrics 21. Dezember 2000
Von Dan Sherman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This book pulls together something more than 1,000 sets of lyrics of the best known American popular songs from 1900 to 1975. It is a wide and well chosen selection that gives lots of coverage to well-known lyricists like Ira Gershwin, Lorenz Hart,Oscar Hammerstein, and Stephen Sondheim. It also provides lyrics for a lot of other well-known songs by less well-known lyricists. If you like American popular music, you will probably finding yourself lost in this book, looking and finding your particular favorite songs and going off to listening to some great recordings of the songs from which the lyrics are taken. The book is laid out well with clear print and with a good index.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Lyrics are literature! 7. August 2009
Von Gloria Rosenthal - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
If you love lyrics (as I do) and really listen to the words a singer is putting out there, you will love reading this book. The familiar lyrics will slip the melody into your mind and lyrics new to you will be an exquisite discovery. I bought the book for myself a year or so ago and just bought this copy as a gift for a friend.
