The Story Behind the Song - Review

Get the truth behind…

…Freddie Mercury’s, “Bohemian Rhapsody” p.g 30

…How an angry girlfriend fuelled the fire in - ”Stop! In the Name of Love” by Lamont Dozier p.g 89

…Why “Eye of the Tiger” by Jim Peterik was destined to be great, p.g 261

Chicken Soup for the Soul has done it again with “The Story Behind the Song.” This book has 101 of your favourite and well-known songs along with the artists who created them. From serious to fun to just plain silly, each song comes with the exclusive, personal background story along with the full words to each.

I found myself singing the songs I haven’t heard in ages and saying, "Oh! That’s what the words are to…” more than one of my favourites.

Authors, Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen and Jo-Ann Geffen have worked hard to bring you the most comprehensive guide to “The Story Behind the Music.” Plus, the forward is written by singer/song-writer and award-winning creator of the Motown sound, Lamont Dozier. “The Story Behind the Song” is a must have for any music lover and would make a great Valentine’s Day gift.
