The Book for Oldies Goodies

December 2012, I found a book “A Century of American Popular Music – 2000 Best-Loved and Remembered Songs (1899-1999) written by David A. Jasen (Routledge, 2002). This book contains the songs from A-Z, Academy Award Winners for Best Songs, list of songs indexed by composers, list of songs indexed by publisher, list of songs indexed by year of publication.

We, Indonesians, unfortunately we don’t have such this book. We don’t have comprehensif data of our recorded music. We need such this book. Who wants to write it? Who wants to research it? Who wants to publish it? Who wants to give fund to make it happen? Goverment? Businessmen? *
