I did completely enjoy this book of short stories. I wasn't familiar with a 2 of the songs that the stories were written about, but a quick search on YouTube rectified that & made the story much more enjoyable. Many of the authors in the book were my first time reading their work & found several that I'll be looking for more of their works. I bought this anthology from one of the authors, Andrea Jones, from a steampunk festival. ...more

I read this for the Popsugar Challenge 2020 in the category of "an anthology". It interested me because each of the stories takes the title from a rock song of my youth. However, as the subtitle indicates, the themes of each are pretty dark which is not normally in my wheelhouse. However, the fact that they were short stories saved it for me. 3.5 stars

I haven't read it yet, but would like to. As an aspiring author, the songs I listen to often play a role in story ideas, plot, and some locations, characters, and events.

The infamous soundtrack to our lives.

This one really surprised me. Some of the stories had me shaking my head and running through lyrics. Others, well let's just say I'll never hear the song the same way again.
