The Rose Song
FourFourFourTwo’s Scott Fagan has written a new book titled The Rose Music Songbook: A Music History of the Rose, by a Grammy-winning actress.
Fagan, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who covered music and film for The Associated Press, writes the book in collaboration with singer and songwriter Rose McGowan.
McGowan, who died in 2016, wrote in an essay in the book’s preface that the lyrics of the song “Rose, I Love You, You’re My Everything” came from her own life.
She added that the song had been written with McGowan’s help and that the music video for it was filmed in New York.
Fagans songwriting credits include “Dancing Queen” and “Love Me Like I’m Your Mother.”
McGowan, one of the most popular singers in the world, died on June 22 at age 51 after a long battle with breast cancer.
Her death led to protests across the world in which she had been outspoken in her criticism of the military and the military’s treatment of prisoners of war and women in the military.
McGowans song “I Love You” is one of McGowans most famous songs.
It was performed at the 2016 Grammy Awards.
The song was nominated for the Grammys three times, including in 2009, for best pop single and in 2013 for best new artist.
