Jarvis Cocker is widely regarded as one of the most original and memorable lyricists and performers of the last three decades. Here, for the first time, is a selection of sixty-six lyrics, presented with commentary and an introduction by the man himself. In this volume, readers (and Pulp fans) will find such classic Jarvis lyrics as 'Common People', 'Disco 2000', 'Babies', 'This is Hardcore' and 'Do You Remember the First Time?' The selection, assembled by the author, reveals a sensibility that is unmistakeably Jarvis: a sometimes visceral, sometimes everyday take on love, relationships and the things we do to each other when the lights get low. Mother, Brother, Lover takes the reader on a thirty-year tour into the life, art and preoccupations of one of the great British artists of the late twentieth century. Shocking, sharp, clever and funny, it is a beautiful collection of lyrics and commentary.

A working artist for over two decades, NJ-native Keith Charles Dovoric marries the traditions of musicianship and lyric-writing to craft an unexpectedly fresh breath of literary songcraft. Presaged by the likes of the "rock poets" (Dylan, Cohen, Springsteen, Zevon) as well as the giants of written verse (Dorothy Parker, T.S. Eliot), and featuring over 180 songs, Another Day, Another Delusion: Selected Lyrics is the ideal distillation of a writer, musician, and performer whose provocative compositions -- not to mention jaundiced world-view -- have set him apart from the cookie-cutter ethos of middlebrow pop culture. "This compendium is the upshot of ten years' worth of assemblage, blood, glory, misery, malignancy, and squalor. I feel it presents me well, for lack of better terms. I'm very pleased with it."

The life's work of two of British music's most unique and timeless artists, with an introduction by Jarvis Cocker. Whenever an aspiring musician asks me about songwriting I point them towards Robert and Alfie. Their work is so unusual, so perceptive, so playful and so grown-up. I don't think there's anyone to compare. If you want songs that touch your mind as well as your heart, these are the best. Wide distribution of this book could improve the state of music dramatically. - Brian Eno *** Selected and arranged by the authors themselves, and featuring an introduction by Jarvis Cocker, Side by Side presents the lyrics, poems, writings and drawings of innovative musician Robert Wyatt and his creative partner, English painter and songwriter Alfie Benge. As a founding member of influential English rock bands Soft Machine and Matching Mole, and with a solo career which has lasted for over forty years and seen him collaborate with a diverse range of artists including Bjork, Brian Eno, Carla Bley, Paul Weller and David Gilmour, his own music remains unclassifiably personal. Alfie Benge is a visual artist, songwriter and pioneering music manager, having managed Robert's career for fifty years. She is also married to Robert. Since 1982 they have collaborated on many of Robert's most well-known songs. This unique volume celebrates one of the most enduring creative partnerships of the last half-century.

This book has the unique distinction of presenting, in one compendious volume, the best of Ghalib in poetry and prose. It contains 104 ghazals, seven miscellaneous poems, and a bouquet of sixty-eight selected letters, besides a few striking couplets and qitas. The ghazals and poems are first given in the original form in calligraphic Urdu. This is followed, on the opposite page, by their English translation, couched in a language that is simple, lucid and rhythmical. The ghazals and poems have also been provided with a transliterated version in the Roman script. This should enable the non-Urdu-knowing reader to have a feel and flavour of the Urdu text. In addition, the book contains a critical-cum-biographical introduction which is comprehensive, well-documented, and insightful. It is hoped that the book will receive a welcome response from the lovers of Ghalib, who was an outstanding poet fit to rank with the greatest poets of the world, and a precious part of our cultural heritage.

ROBERT LAMM SELECTED LYRICS is a collection by one of the founding members of the group, "Chicago." This collection contains many of his well-known compositions (Saturday In The Park, Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?, 25 Or 6 To 4) as well as many of his solo works. "I don't recall how, or why I began writing lyrics. My first songs were perhaps unusual, but sincere. As a primary songwriter for Chicago we experienced overwhelming success during our unexpectedly long sequence of recorded albums. Music and lyrics are very separate creations. I love doing both. My songs dating from the late '60's through the early 80's provided the opportunity to experiment, learn and develop as a musician. My music evolved, and so did my lyric vocabulary and intentions. By the late 80's I was urged and encouraged to collaborate with other songwriters, which often yielded good songs but more importantly, yielded lasting friendships. While collaborating on music ideas, I often found myself being the primary lyricist of many songs. After decades in California, I had found love, and returned to New York City. This was the true start of my life. With inspired energy, I was reaching for honest new territory in a series of solo albums, which contain my best work. WHY THIS BOOK? I am a man of few spoken words. While quietly loving them, I wanted our children, Sacha, Kate, and Sean, to know about my journey and my internal life, perhaps best expressed in my lyrics. In this collection, I purposefully selected songs containing lyrics that are solely of my invention, acknowledging the great collaborations on the music side." - Robert Lamm
