Unlike previous collected volumes about pop music in film, where a generalised approach has been adopted, it offers instead a close examination of these two most pervasive and significant mediums in contemporary culture.
"The collection introspects, assembling the pop song into various guises and documenting how individuals dissemble the multiple roles that the pop song plays in all and one audio-visual moment. The song as: ghost, role-play, memory trigger, narrator, marketing device, translator, alienator, membership rite, etc." (Taken from the back cover) Notes: Includes index ISBN: 184150078X More info
