[Édith Piaf]

Édith Piaf (1915 – 1963); was a French cabaret singer, songwriter, and actress who became widely regarded as France's national chanteuse, as well as being one of France's greatest international stars. Her music was often autobiographical with her singing reflecting her life, and her specialty being chanson and torch ballads, particularly of love, loss and sorrow.

The author, Simone Beteaut was Edith Piaf's half-sister and lifelong partner in mischief when they sang for tips in the streets, squares, cafés, and military camps, while living in a succession of cheap, squalid hotels during Piaf's early years.

...<b>Jukebox America:<br> Down Back Streets and Blue Highways in Search of the Country's Greatest Jukebox.</b>, Bunch, William
4 Bunch, William ...Jukebox America:
Down Back Streets and Blue Highways in Search of the Country's Greatest Jukebox.

New York: St. Martin's Press 1994 0312110138 / 9780312110130 First Editon Hardcover in Jacket.
 
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Bunch recounts his search for America's "best" jukebox, somewhat ambiguously defined as the one whose selection of songs is "in perfect sync with its time and place."

The book's subtext, however, is generational angst. Self-classified as a member of "Generation Y," Bunch takes up his mission as an expression of the restless, youthful energy he fears will be suppressed by his recent decision to marry and move to the suburbs.

His anxiety about his personal shift in direction translates into concern about cultural changes: the jukebox, a symbol of regional identity and cultural diversity, is threatened by the increasing homogenization of society.
