The Song Machine: Inside the Hit Factory by John Seabrook | Summary and Analysis
Preview: "Hook - First Verse - Chorus - Second Verse - Chorus - Bridge - Chorus - Outro." Cleverly laid out as the chapters in John Seabrook's newest title is the algorithm for the "hit track". The Song Machine: Inside the Hit Factory is all about the hit track: who writes them, how they are made, their emergence into mainstream culture, and their relevance in today's society. In the First Verse, John Seabrook illuminates the history of pop and profiles Swedish producers, the late Mr. Pop, and his protégé, Max Martin. These two songwriter/producers transformed pop music into what we hear on the radio today with acts such as Ace of Base, the Backstreet Boys, and Britney Spears. This is a summary and analysis of the book, and not the original book.
