The book Don’t Eat The Yellow Snow (ISBN 978-9063692889, $22) is a collection of Pop Music wisdom. The headline of this post for example is from Frank Zappa‘s 1974 Apostrophe (’) album.

The song titles are beautifully hand painted by the designer Marcus Kraft and are featured with a striking quote from the songs lyrics. There are for example many times in which the three words “let it be” are words of wisdom. Although the lyrics may have originally been written in reference to interpersonal difficulties within the Beatles, the song does possess a universality that makes “Let It Be” one of the great advice pop songs of all time.

This collection lists 250 of the best songs for those times when solid advice is needed. The book represents all popular music styles from the last 50 years, from rock to the Wu-Tang Clan. ❚
