9781442271548: Counting Down the Beatles: Their 100 Finest Songs

The Beatles loom large over the musical landscape even now that nearly a half-century has passed since the four men from Liverpool played their last notes together. While the story of their stunning rise and brief but brilliant time together on top of the pop music world is undoubtedly fascinating, it would ring hollow without the scores of incredible songs that accompanied each milestone. These songs are the focus of rock writer Jim Beviglia’s latest foray into the catalogs of rock royalty.

Counting Down the Beatles: Their 100 Finest Songs features Beviglia’s list of the best songs in the band’s unparalleled oeuvre. Ranked in descending order from #100 to #1, each song is accompanied by a lengthy essay providing information on the song’s writing and recording, context on where it falls within the band’s timeline, and the author’s analysis and explanation why it deserves its position in this hallowed canon.

Every fan of the Beatles, from attendees at their first U.S.tour to the newest generation's devotees, will find this collection an informative, insightful, and entertaining adventure. Not only will it reveal little-known facts, but it just may start some arguments and settle a few debates.

About the Author:

Jim Beviglia is a writer for the print and online edition of American Songwriter magazine. He’s been reviewing and writing about music for the past decade for several websites and is proprietor of his popular Countdown Kid blog. His first three books, Counting Down Bob Dylan: His 100 Finest Songs, Counting Down Bruce Springsteen: His 100 Finest Songs, and Counting Down The Rolling Stones: Their 100 Finest Songs were all published by Rowman & Littlefield.

Review:

In author Jim Beviglia’s new book: Counting Down The Beatles Their 100 Finest Songs readers learn the how and why behind each top 100 song. Expertly researched and chronicled the authors’ delving in to the meaning behind each tune and their lyrics reveal the inner workings that led to the creation of each masterpiece. As a Beatles fan I was both amazed and surprised by much of what I read. The entire book is a penetrating and poignant breakdown about the creative surge that The Beatles possessed. (Boyce McClain's Collectors' Corner)
