Songbook site index


using scroll wheel-2a

You may comment on either Songbook pages (784 published) or posts (30). Be forewarned though that posts, which are typically duplicates of Songbook pages, are usually deleted after a brief time. I normally create a page first, publish a duplicate or near dupe of the page as a post, and hold publication of the page for a while, sometimes until I remove the post. Pages are very seldom deleted.

Songbook posts are principally used to:

  1. announce new pages
  2. serve as site indexes (such as this post), or indexes of pages concerning selected periods or artists
  3. leave informative messages about the site (such as this one)
  4. advertise artists or recordings from feature pages in construction, or which I’m transiently interested in or think my audience might enjoy
  5. occasionally refer to and provide links to previously published Songbook pages which may otherwise be forgotten or neglected

      Thanks, Morgan
      Good luck on your new site. I’ll stop in and visit soon. The lists of references and citations in your posts are of impressive length. Are the articles intended for academic purposes?

        Thanks for your interest. My posts could be used for academic purposes, since they have a title, and author and Chicago Handbook has citation standards for blogs. But they have not been reviewed by anyone or edited independently.

        It actually started because I needed a nerd project and was annoyed that I could not find books about hits over the course of music history. I was astonished that some of my coworkers did not know that there was popular music before the 1950s! As a fellow music nerd, I thought you might find that humorous.

        Thanks again, I look forward to any feedback you may have.

        Hey Morgan,
        Wait. I thought popular music was hatched out of a meteorite that fell to Earth just outside of Memphis, Tennessee on July 5, 1954. Ain’t that the way it happened?

        Actually, according to a lot of my younger friends who honestly don’t even know any Elvis Presley songs, popular music started in the 60s (nobody knows the year, i.e. 1963 or 1964, depending on one’s point-of-view) when the Beatles brought the British Invasion to the United States. Their comments make me giggle a little, but sad for their lack of understanding at the same time.
