A Century of Song is a 6-CD box set by La Musique Populaire.


As the title suggests, A Century of Song is a chronological overview of songs from the 20th century. Recorded between 1999 and 2001, the songs were originally available for download from their website. Eschewing the canonical choices many would expect, no Lennon/McCartney compositions for example, the box covers a multitude of styles including plunderphonics, drone rock and happy hardcore.

The songs were eventually collected in a box set in 2004 over 5 discs, with a sixth disc of outtakes and alternate versions. It was released in a limited edition of 100, with extensive liner notes and a certificate of authenticity signed by LMP band members Ryan Bassler and Eric Haugen.

Reviews were generally positive, but some expressed bafflement at the selection of songs and the disparate styles used.
