Organized around the idea of crisis and adversity, be it personal, social, or categorical, the contributors to Pop When the World Falls Apartshowcase the range of ways that pop music studies has responded to the social, political, and cultural shifts that are reshaping the world today. Topics addressed include the culture of jazz in post-Katrina New Orleans, how Isaac Hayes covered "By the Time I Get to Phoenix" as a response to the murder of Martin Luther King, Jr., desperate musical wannabes, Karen Carpenter withering in Orange County, and a hoax that drew record company talent scouts to the aptly chosen New Market, Virginia.
