One of the great joys of music, we think, is its capacity for being shared: in love of a song, or a band, or the particular sense of dancing with someone you care about, music invites community. Books that get involved with music, that tap their foot to it, offer a glimpse into their author’s relationship with that community, and invite a reader inside that feeling. We’ve put together a list of some of our favorite and most popular books about and around music, from biographies of pioneers in the field, tell-all punk memoirs, introductions to genres for the curious, guides to music theory, and much more.
