Pretend for a moment that it is 1966, and you are driving to work, tuning the radio in your car. You stop on a station playing “Last Train to Clarksville” by The Monkees, a song you recognize from their popular TV show.

John Lennon was a prominent singer/songwriter that founded the Beatles and impacted music like no other band before. This impact on music roused society in many ways during the 1960s. After WWII, there was an inflation in consumerism as people began to settle economically in the 1960s. As a result, the need for entertainment increased since people were able to afford entertainment without rationing or supporting the war. Moreover, as a result of the 1950’s, a period of social conservatism and conformity, the “Baby Boom” (1945-1964) produced 76 million babies that John Lennon and the Beatles would impact and, therefore, move emotionally. Despite the widespread geographical changes during this period, the demographical changes of society distinguish the 1960s from any other decade. During this time, Lennon inspired generations to
Communication is a necessity to interact with others, but what some people don’t realize is that without communication we would be missing most media and entertainment. Communication is seen in everything we do and watch for example: movies, television, art, and music. The skills of communication are easily used to convey emotions and ideas to broad audiences. The Beatles are arguably the most popular band of the 20th century and their chart toppers conveyed various topics through song. An analysis of The Beatles’ song Yesterday reveals some of the communication skills used: relatability, intrapersonal communication, and self-feedback.
Tennessee Williams is a world famous playwright. He has won many prestigious awards. In 1947, Williams penned one of his most famous plays, A Streetcar Named Desire, winning him the Pulitzer Prize. William’s background greatly influenced his writing, and because of this, alcoholism and mental illness are issues strongly reflected in his works (Williams 1817). A Streetcar Named Desire is a story about a women with mental health issues, named Blanche Dubois. In the play, Blanche loses her family 's estate, and goes to stay with her sister Stella. Stella lives with her husband Stanley. From the start of the play, the audience begins to notice Blanche and Stanley’s contrasted personalities. Williams uses symbolism to allow his characters to represent something stronger than themselves. Past and present are intertwined in A Streetcar Named Desire through Blanche and Stanley; Blanche represents the past: the Old South, aristocracy, and former sensitivity, while Stanley represents the present: the New South, the industrial class, and modern straightforwardness.

The instrumental music reinforces the meaning of the song because in the beginning when she talks about the walls she built and how they were tumbling down the song was slow and serious. Then when she started singing about her halo being her “saving grace” the song became very upbeat and happy. The music does affect the overall tone of the song because her voice stays pretty monotone but as the music speeds up or slows down it helps me understand how she was feeling. The instrumental is very intense and makes it seem like Beyonce feels very strong about what she is singing. In the song instruments like the drums, piaono, amd kyboard are played. Theese instruments were choosen to give a good beat. THe drums are constantly playing in the backround in a clapping like beat. The piano plays toward the end when Beyonce sings the word “Halo” slowly, this makes that song seem very dramatic. Lastly, the keyboard makes the song seem more

“On the Sunny Side of the Street” performed by Esperanza Spalding is a jazz and blues song about letting go of your worries by “walking on the sunny side of the street.

The light drumming in the background was a very nice touch that could be easily overlooked.
