Popular Music Song Index

selected and edited by Barbara E. Hoffman


This is an index to selected books of popular songs in the collection of the Patchogue-Medford Library. There are approximately 100,000 entries in the index from approximately 1,500 indexed books.


Also included in the index are issues of Sheet Music Magazine from May, 1987 on and issues of Sing Out! Magazine from October, 1966 on. In general, the index does not include collections of songs such as piano-vocal scores of musicals and films which can be easily located by other means.  Individual sheet music in our collection may be found by consulting the library's main catalog.


I want to thank the former director of the Patchogue-Medford Library, Sara Courant, for her advice and support on this project; the members of the Young Adult/Audio-Visual Department for their invaluable assistance; and the Reference Department staff who began this indexing effort when it was in manual form.
