Album artwork for Yeah Yeah Yeah: A Complete History Of Pop by Bob Stanley

the complete story of the modern pop era: the era of vinyl, the top 40, the nme, smash hits and top of the pops - when pop music defined pop culture. modern pop began in 1952 when the first british chart was published and the first seven inch singles were released. it ended (perhaps) in 1995 when robson and jerome reached the top of the charts with the first number one not to be available on vinyl since 1953. the internet age ushered in the death rites of over 40 years of pop. 'do you believe in magic?' describes the journey that leads from 'rock around the clock' to 'crazy in love'. raw, thrilling, surprising and sometimes downright dangerous, the pop moment almost always clocks in at under 3:30 and is initially, immediately recognised by a teenage listener. there have been many books on pop but very few, if any, have attempted to bring the whole story to life from rock 'n' roll to house and techno in all it's various sub-permutations. do you believe in magic? is a one-stop pop shop for the music lover everywhere.
