Songs about fucking and killingthat would have also been an appropriate subtitle for this scintillating new book from Ted Gioia. Hes already written three valuable books about the place of music in society and human experience, Healing Songs (2006), Works Songs (2006), and Love Songs: The Hidden history (2015). Music: A Subversive History builds on those by digging down into the fundamental nature of music, how it is made and how it affects us.
