The electric guitars are exceptional to give off a psycho-dynamic sound in songs like,”I Got A Thing, You Got A Thing, Everybody’s Got A Thing” and “Qualify and Satisfy”. The bass is funking it up in,”Music For My Mother” while the drums groove on in,”Good Old Music”. In the lyrical aspect of, Funkadelic, there is not a lot of lyrics within the songs because it is mainly focused on the instrumentals and having lyrics that create a groovy chorus. When lyrics are heard, they tend to create imagery and there is some sexual innuendos here and there, but none the less it fits greatly with
The dialogue and lyrics are straightforward and full of ironic elements, which bring a lot of fun to enjoy. The transition from lines into a song is pretty smooth. For example, when Shrek is “hurt” by what Fiona says and his anger reaches a climax, he naturally starts to sing to express his emotion. In addition, the music, which embraces several styles such as pop, rock and jazz, also add dynamics into the show. So in sum, the writing of the show is appealing.

However, later on after months and months they soon started to accept Little 3 what they were saying. There were many other artists that Ishmael admired and strived to be as such as the Sugarhill Gang. “Rapper’s Paradise,” by the Sugarhill Gang was the song that first brought him into his love for hip hop. It was before the war when Ishmael was 8, he and his friends were sitting around tv watching the music video for “Rapper’s Delight.” Since the video the group of boys ganged together and created a rap and dance group for themselves. Committed to their group, they worked constantly on their songs and dance moves, even changed their
Throughout the year the kids at school plan a school-wide cookout full of food and fun. With all of the activities and outgoing personalities of Kwaj kids, I think Holden would be pulled out of his shell to enjoy all the new friendships brought upon
Zachary Rosenthal Mrs. Cohen UC AIT English III 1/12/17 Like the green light on Daisy’s dock, Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of The Great Gatsby is so close yet so far, delivering only on specific traits and characteristics and not as a whole. Although the music comes through well, the characters display the American Dream in some areas and very poorly in others. Jay-Z, with help from Andre 3000, Kanye West, and Beyonce, create a stunning soundtrack full of hip-hop masterpieces that tie well into the overall feel of the movie. At the time this movie took place, in the early 1900’s, jazz was a really big part of popular culture. The movie tries its best to relate their jazz to our current day-and-age and succeeds well on many separate occasions.
In homophonic songs, a melody is accompanied by a voice or group of voices contain chords, where the melody in Dear Mama remains constant throughout the entirety of the song while Shakur speaks over it. Homophonic songs are quite common and appear often in popular 21st century hip-hop, pop and rap music such as what Shakur created before he passed away in 1996. Many current and former listeners of Shakur believe that the slow dynamics of this particular song contributes the spiritual feeling that they experience whenever listening to it. Due to the commonality of judgement on rap and hip-hop music, this song by Shakur partially rid of the “gangster” stereotype placed upon him and allowed listeners to understand that certain unfortunate events in his life and childhood determined how he had to live. Within this song, he described horrific aspects of his life such as living with a single mother, growing up poor and selling drugs, which illustrates that many of the frowned upon actions that Shakur engaged in were simply to survive in the treacherous environment he was exposed
What is music? My favorite definition comes from the ever-prestigious dictionary.com: "An art of sound in time that expresses ideas and emotions in significant forms through the elements of rhythm, melody, harmony, and color." I think it's a shame that this definition cannot be found in more prominent dictionaries because I feel that this encompasses every aspect of music that I appreciate so much. Ever since I was a little girl I had a connection to all sorts of music; from Disney Princess soundtracks to attempting to play the electric keyboard. As I grew up, I often wondered how so many different types of people could like the same music.
My love for art and the art of music is my main reason for being similar to a Pegasus. I like to write and make stories, and I will enter five phases at once and try to learn things like coding and drawing while trying to battle my laziness. As for music, I usually enjoy any genre of music except for twangy country music and hardcore rap. I also like to play the violin, and can usually hear a tune and repeat a simplified melody on a piano. I’m basically creative in multiple ways, but usually too lazy to fully pursue a single
It has become one of the favourite songs of the discos’ and nightclubs’ DJs, and some of them would make a remix version of the song. Whenever people listened to this song, driven by its synthesizer-heavy rhythm, they would follow the beat and dance. To understand how R&B music influenced people leisure life at that time, I have asked a friend of mine from US, B.J. Cress (B.J.) who is now working as an English teacher in Korea about his clubbing experience in his hometown.
