About the book: 

Dick Clark is famous for saying that “music is the soundtrack to our lives” because everything that happens to us has been “scored” either by ourselves or someone else. It’s true. Music plays as time passes. It is clearly the soundtrack of our lives. The soundtrack of yesterday has become a playlist today, and playlists certainly are proliferating. This book looks at the progression from soundtracks to playlists. It looks at music in our daily lives most of which we now “score” ourselves.  Our music libraries include songs from before we are born (Mozart effect) to after we are dead (Amazing Grace), with special occasions like birthdays, graduations, weddings, and anniversaries in between. This also gives voice to the role of music in sports, politics, religion, advertising, and the media (television and movies). It provides a little history, theory, and prospective to our soundtracks. Finally, true to its name, each chapter ends with a suggested playlist. Something to listen to while you read or to remember what you read after you’re done. So put on your headphones and hit play today!
