" You know that song. The one about . . . It goes like . . ." Questions like this frustrate library patrons and staff. One solution is The Green Book, which indexes 21,000 twentieth-century songs by assigning one or more of 800 subject headings, based on keywords in the title or the subject of the song. Most songs are from the 1950s on. Johnny Cash's "Boy Named Sue" is found, for example, under Fight and Men's Names. The subjects vary widely from UFOs to Colors, Drugs, Marriage, Police, and States. Songs under the subject Door, for example, include "Crazy Little Mamma," "Let My Love Open the Door," "My Baby Done Changed the Lock," and "One Less Bell to Answer," among 81 songs. Love is not a subject, but there are pages of songs under Sex. See references lead from one subject heading to another. Song titles are listed alphabetically under a subject. For each song, performer, album, and label are given to help track recordings. Most are albums and are in print; a few 45s are included. The book closes with a list translating the abbreviations used for record labels and an index to subjects used.Review:
The price tag leans toward outrageous for a standard-size paperback reference; but the subject is exhaustive and was undoubtedly a challenge to compile: a list of pop music songs by subject. Over 21,000 songs and over 200 new and revised categories mark a fine discography collection which appears in its fourth updated, expanded edition to reach new audiences. An essential professional's reference. -- Midwest Book Review
