DESCRIPTION

MUSIC TO DIE FOR – DEATH DISCS 1914 – 1960

One of pop’s hardiest forms, the ‘death disc’ is, arguably, the most comic too. Death remains one of the topics that has lasted the test of time and even today loss of life - often, but certainly not always related to that of a loved one - remains a subject still popular amongst songwriters of a certain sway. What is sure is that songs related to death, maintain an enormous cult-appeal amongst collectors.
