TOP 100 REVIEWERon 7 December 2012
This book contains everything you will need to tackle the work of some of the real icons of the 1980s although, sadly, the genius of Cliff Richard and Black Lace haven't made it.

The eighties was an eclectic time for music. Not in the same way as the seventies, where it would not have been unusual to have found a Top 40 chart which had the Nolans sandwiched in between the Sex Pistols and Glen Campbell. This book gives more than a flavour of the huge diversity of musical styles from the eighties. 'Borderline', 'The Spirit of Radio', Thriller', 'Ghost Town', 'Manic Monday'... some of the finest songs from some of the finest musical acts, everyone from the Eurythmics to John Lennon, all with lyrics and chord boxes.

You, no doubt, will have more musical talent that I have. Not that a lack of any skills whatsoever is a barrier to being able to appreciate this book. It's tremendously satisfying to be able to completely ruin a well-known song with my extremely poor guitar skills, but to be able to really make a good job of ruining it. Anyone can pick up their instrument and make Madness's 'Embarrassment' a self-fulfilling prophecy, purely from memory. To be able to make it sound dreadful, even with this book in front of you, must take a fair bit of skill in itself. That's the story I'm sticking to at any rate.
