Both in books IX and X the statement "Each man is his nous" is shown as a leading principle of the philia and eudaimonia arguments.

People speak of "my song" or "our song" with a possessiveness they never feel for a painting or a novel. We have tried to answer these questions by telling the stories behind many of the great songs of Broadway, Hollywood, and Tin Pan Alley. Both in books IX and X the statement "Each man is his nous" is shown as a leading principle of the philia and eudaimonia arguments.

Although long out of print, this book is the go to source for information on composer and lyricist information on all of the music published up to that time. The author was a big name in the music business, with contacts in all of the pop and rock and swing genre, and he offers basic data on thousands (literally) of compositions during the book's time period.
It's not going to give you a biography of the Beatles or of Bobby Darin, but as a resource on the topic, it is without equal. I used it to give my group's vocalists a source of "fill" material to fill in the gaps between their performances - each entry can be expanded into thirty seconds of "patter" to keep the performance flowing.

A fascinating book; especially for those of us old enough to remember these classic songs. I read and reread this book a lot. It is not only to learn the who, how, why, and where of the songs... it is also to be reminded of many songs that I wouldn't otherwise remember. A great book!

I simply love this book! It covers about 600 popular American songs from the good old days. The story behind each song is captivating.This leads me to appreciate each song not just for the melody but also the circumstances how each song is created.

Absolutely fascinating and enjoyable!

A THOUSAND FASCINATING STORIES YOU NEVER KNEW
Received on time by seller. Great book with lots of great info.
My only criticism is that I would prefer that the songs would be presented in Alpha order instead of by years. I think I, and most people want to look up songs by name and not by date they were first introduced.
