The Top 15 Philosophical Songs

American Songwriter Magazine asked me to write this list of “The Top 15 Philosophical Songs.”

Here’s their description:

“Strap on your thinking caps and get ready to expand your mind. Grant Maxwell, the author of How Does It Feel?: Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, and the Philosophy of Rock and Roll, has compiled a heady list of the 15 greatest songs to incorporate philosophy. Are you ready? Good. Let’s begin.”

“I Hope We Passed the Audition”: How The Beatles’ Encounter With Abbey Road Studios Changed the World

My friends over at Hey Dullblog, which they describe as a blog for “people who think about The Beatles maybe a little too much,” and which I describe as one of the best and smartest Beatles sites out there, have posted an excerpt from my book, How Does It Feel?: Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, and the Philosophy of Rock and Roll. It has sparked a great conversation in the comments as well.
