Which Song is the Best and Why? Read it and see!

Organized by rank, from 1 to 100, this illustrated celebration of the best songs by the boys who revolutionized rock-and-roll includes expert commentary, historical context, interview material, and lots of great sidebars (including "best" lists from some of today's pop music powerhouses.) Like all "best of" lists, the book's opinionated stance generates animated discussion.

Here, There, and Everywhere is profusely illustrated with photos of the band at work and play, and all of the unforgettable album-cover art.  Appendices include a complete song list, discography, videography, and bibliography, making it a one-stop source of Beatles facts and figures.
