Greil Marcus: I always believe in titling books after what they are, if you know what they are. Years ago I put together a collection of pieces about Elvis, his cultural life . I could have called it A History of Rock ‘n’ Roll in Ten Songs. That would have been the modest and reasonable thing to do. Years ago I put together a collection of pieces about Elvis, his cultural life following his death. I had always called it my Dead Elvis book. Of course, there are many histories, and anybody else would choose very different songs. So that would be the humanistic way of doing it. Instead I opted for the fascist way of doing it. The History of Rock ‘n’ Roll in Ten Songs. As if these are the songs and this is the history, which of course isn’t true.

The History of Rock 'n' Roll in Ten Songs by Greil Marcus EPUB
Unlike all previous versions of rock 'n' roll history, this book omits almost every iconic performer and ignores the storied events and turning points everyone knows. Instead, in a daring stroke, Greil Marcus selects 10 songs recorded between 1956 and 2008 and then proceeds to dramatize how each embodies rock 'n' roll as a thing in itself in the story it tells, inhabits, and acts out - a new language, something new under the sun.
"Transmission" by Joy Division. "All I Could Do Was Cry" by Etta James and then Beyoncé. "To Know Him Is to Love Him", first by the Teddy Bears and almost half a century later by Amy Winehouse. In Marcus' hands these and other songs tell the story of the music, which is, at bottom, the story of the desire for freedom in all its unruly and liberating glory. Slipping the constraints of chronology, Marcus braids together past and present, holding up to the light the ways these striking songs fall through time and circumstance, gaining momentum and meaning, astonishing us by upending our presumptions and prejudices. This book, by a founder of contemporary rock criticism - and its most gifted and incisive practitioner - is destined to become an enduring classic.
