Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Story Behind The Song
Now Available As An eBook In All Formats
Christina Aguilera, Melissa Etheridge, Lamont Dozier, Paul Anka, Kanye West, Richie Sambora & other top songwriters tell entertainment veteran Jo-Ann Geffen their inspiration and techniques.


January 17, 2014 -- Now, the top-selling book Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Story Behind The Song is available as an eBook for all formats. Musicians love to say that every song tells a story, but they are usually tight-lipped about the story behind the song. Was it really scribbled on a napkin? What love interest was the real inspiration? If we knew the real story behind our favorite songs, would we ever listen to them the same way again?

Jo-Ann Geffen, a Hollywood veteran, peels back the curtain on 101 songwriters and artists to reveal the back story on many of our favorite songs that trace our lives through music from Top 40 hit-makers Richie Sambora, Christina Aguilera, Melissa Etheridge, John Legend, the Backstreet Boys’ Howie Dorough, and Jewel, to classic rock performer/songwriters like Chicago’s Robert Lamm, the late Jim Croce, Foreigner’s Mick Jones, and Daryl Hall and John Oates, alternative rockers Aaron Lewis of Staind and Corey Taylor of Slipknot, rapper Kanye West, and legendary punk rock hits such as Joan Jett’s “Bad Reputation” and Jerry Cantrell from Alice In Chains reflecting on his father’s tour in Vietnam and its aftermath in “Rooster, pop classics like those of Barry Manilow, Hal David, Diane Warren and Paul Anka who re-tells his history with Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack, R&B songmasters such as Nathan Morris for the Boyz II Men/Mariah Carey hit “One Sweet Day”, Walter Orange of the Commodores, Smokey Robinson, Earth Wind and Fire’s Philip Bailey, and country hits from Tracy Lawrence, Ray Stevens, Pam Tillis and more.

Some of the stories bring laughter, others bring tears, but all are insightful and great reading for music fans, aficionados or people who just like a good story.

Chicken Soup for the Soul Publishing, LLC, publishes all the latest titles in the famous Chicken Soup for the Soul book series which are distributed through Simon and Schuster, Inc.
