They were both strictly created by black musicians. These forms of music were popular among both the young and older generations of African Americans. However, outside of the African American race, jazz and hip-hop has become a performance by people of all race and ages. Buddy Bolden invented jazz in 1877 in New Orleans (the guardian, 2010). That is where jazz is known to get its main influence from.
There are countless significant and meaningful songs that have been released between 1950 and the present day that it would be impossible to analyze each one of them. There are, however, a few ones that shine brighter than the rest. Artists such as The Beach Boys, the Beatles, and the Rolling Stones have had such a huge impact on some people and society that they are still recognized to this day. It’s important to remember that songs are not just made to sound good for the listener. Songs carry a message that could sometimes have a huge influence and impression on people.
The Twentieth Century gave birth to many new forms of music. The world saw music transformation from the creations of Chopin to Rock and Roll, Rap, Heavy Metal, and Grunge. While there are many artist and groups who performed new musical styles, none did more for them then the five bands we will discuss here. These groups not only shaped the music we listen to, they also shaped our culture. From the King of Rock, to the original British boy band, a heavy metal band from Los Angeles, the band that introduced 90’s to grunge rock, and finally the original gangster rappers.
Throughout history, the art of music has been the expression and interpretation of sound. The interpretation of sound lead many artists to produce covers of other artists’ song and add their own twist to the lyrics or sound. An example of this production of music is Dolly Parton’s, “I Will Always Love You” and the cover rendition by Whitney Houston. Few people actually realized that it was not Houston who wrote the song, do to the song’s high popularity. The differences in the two pieces could have affected the popularity of the song, also the culture of their fan base varied greatly.
Rock Genre Mutation When music from the 20th and 21st centuries comes to mind, many are immediately drawn to the genre of rock and roll. Rock and roll, which emerged in the 1950’s, was unlike any genre before it. It combines elements from several different existing genres such as country music and blues (“Tracing the History of Rock `n' Roll”). Rock instrumentals consist mainly of bass, drums and guitars. Its fast paced tempo, element of rebellion in its lyrics and music, and its popularity amongst young people created a music genre and a way of life that would change the music industry and society forever.
i am going to explore the different influences that one might had to create a piece and in some situations set trends for a whole decade. i will be exploring all the different ways that one could use the word pop e.g (pop tart, pop culture )and how this would have been used in the 1960’s. in the 1960s the phrase pop ' had generated a lot of attention all over the media the word 'pop ' was being used more often and new pop chart shows were taking place on mainstream television and radio. From the phrase 'pop ' stemed music, fashion , art e.c.t. in the 60’s there was a strong sense of popular culture.
In the 1920’s, music recording and radio broadcasting changed the way people perceived music. It became a treat for some and for the lucky ones-it became a career. It all started with people’s desire to hear their favorite artists-perform their famous songs. Figuring out how to market these songs and letting people hear what they wanted to hear on the radio became what we know today as the Music Industry. Throughout the years, the music industry has continued to make it possible for us to listen to the music we want, see the artists we want to see, and, in some cases, it has allowed other talented people become the artist.
The music change in society is proportional with technological advances as well. As technology changes it allows new styles to develop and new ways for people to listen to them. From records to the internet and radio to television music, and the way we consume it has significantly changed over the past years. Even the advances in the technology used to create musical instruments and recording equipment has effected what styles and songs are made and popular within the music scenery. Starting with the 70’s, Disco was one of the most largest and hated trends in music during the decade and sure one of the most entertaining.
For the music business, the situation has become extremely convoluted over the past two or three decades. In the sixties, the album was the music. It was one of the primary carriers for symbolic representation and identification music fans had; associated merchandise existed, but played a much less important role than today. Even more importantly, music related media were in their infancy: there was no MTV, no video clips, no MySpace, and the art of merchandising in itself was still very young. By comparison, the audio CD plays an almost insignificant old today in the way we relate to music: a band’s MySpace page or web-site is probably much more influential in shaping perception of a band or a song than the physical CD one can buy.
