Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Story Behind the Music explores the stories behind the music that we love, including artists like Christina Aguilara, Barry Manilow, John Legend, Jim Croce and teen heartthrob David Cassidy.
There are 101 songs included in this collection, like "Come to my Window" by Melissa Etheridge. When she wrote the song she was touring while carrying on a long-distance relationship that she was having difficulty maintaining. She also was somewhat prophetic in singing about the blackness "that has seeped into my chest" when she was diagnosed with cancer 10 years later.
The publishers were kind enough to provide a copy of the book so that a lucky winner will have the chance to read all of the stories behind the music.
