Publisher's Summary

Does the opening "pling pling plinggg" of Bette Midler's "The Rose" fill you with existential dread? Do you cringe at the mere whiff of what Phil Collins is spewing "In the Air Tonight"? Have you ever bolted from a restaurant because Celine Dion's cover of "All By Myself" was threatening to drive you over the edge? Well, turn around, bright eyes because Tom Reynolds is here with I Hate Myself and Want to Die, a laugh-out-loud-till-you're sobbing compendium of the world's most hideously depressing pop songs and a guide to what makes them so heartwrenchingly, earsplittingly sad and bad. With chapters like "I Was a Teenage Car Crash", "I'm Trying to be Profound and Touching but Really Suck At It", "Perfect Storms", and "I Mope, Therefore I Am", Reynolds details the history of melodic misery, from the days of Bobby Darin to the era of Evanescence. Complete with a ranked Countdown of Doom and wonderfully dreary drawings, I Hate Myself and Want to Die is the one book that fans and foes of woeful tunes won't want to live without.

I Hate Myself and Want to Die........

A dry read but funny. Something to hold on to when you tuck in the nights you feel like you just want to die. Take your meds and laugh yourself to sleep. He will still be blabbing about obscure 45 rpm records that you didn't even know we're about dying when the drugs wear off and the sun comes up in the morning. You just made it thru the night clutching your body pillow listening to Tom Reynolds cracking jokes about wanting to die in your ear. And you won't feel guilty in the morning. Funny stuff. Better than a suicide hotline. After all, laughter Is the best medicine. Tom Reynolds your a riot! Thanks....xo

I don't hate this book at all.

Breezy, smart, smart alecky, and very funny. Come for the trip down many musical memory lanes, often recalling songs that will make you groan with despair at having been made to recall them, stay for the laughs, of which there are a lot. Thumbs up for a lot of thumbs down songs!
