Good book for the essay

For anyone looking for another book to reference for the essay, The Invention of Journalism by Jean K. Chalaby has been helpful for me so far. It's pretty dense but the whole book revolves around the period from 1850 onwards so there's a lot of good quotable bits, particularly in the Third Part.

And the last chapter contains some interesting theories on the function of journalism, in particular the 'magic mirror' effect.

Don't let the intoduction put you off reading this book, I didn't know half the words in there but I found some good facts in the rest of the book.

The top rock songs/ballads

Here are just 137 of my favourite rock songs and (rock) ballads. Apart from the first one, the rest are in no particular order.

Please feel free to debate/disagree, discuss and add to the list etc. To be honest, I could have added hundreds more.

Are these good choices? Could they be better? Do they inspire you? Do you have instances, images in your head when you think of, or sing them? Are these the types of songs which can entertain a nation, compared to what the current music scene offers today?
