Overview

One song. One moment in a lifetime of music.

Basement songs hold a special place in our hearts. Decades may pass when suddenly one of these melodies begins playing, instantly reminding you of the time and place it first sank its hooks into your heart or into your soul. It doesn't matter if it was at work, in a car, on your friend’s radio, or in your parents’ basement. What does matter is the music and how it still affects you.

In this unique collection of essays, Scott Malchus explores the songs that influenced and guided him throughout the years: from his discovery of popular music as performed by a green felt puppet to the rock anthems played by a Journey cover band. In between, life-long friendships are forged, true love is found and adversity is met head-on. Each defining moment in his life married to a song and each song an anchor to an everlasting memory. BASEMENT SONGS is a journey full of heart, humor and above all, a love of music.
