Bob Stanley musician, music critic, and unabashed fan recounts the progression from the Beach Boys to the Pet Shop Boys to the Beastie Boys: explores what connects doo wop to the sock hop: and reveals how technological changes have affected pop production. Working with a broad definition of pop one that includes country and metal, disco and Dylan, skiffle and glam Stanley teases out the connections and tensions that animate the pop charts and argues that the charts are vital social history.
