Pepper album that had never been done before, this was the first packaged vinyl to create a feel, it came complete with inserts and a never seen before designed album cover.” Bryan Wawzenek from Ultimate Classic Rock.com writes that “the cover had been conceived by Peter Blake and his wife Jann Haworth.” Paul McCartney had come up with the basic idea, “a presentation featuring a mayor, a corporation, a floral clock and pictures of famous people hanging on a wall behind the Beatles.” The rest of the band also suggested figures like Fred Astaire, and Karl Marx be included on the cover. The Sgt. Pepper sleeve displayed that cover art can have weird designs and make the consumer turn his, or her
Amanda felt that she never tried to compose music because of the pressure to learn how to play an instrument: “we didn’t enjoy it: I think it was just forced on us that none of us ever picked it [composition] up...” Two other teachers remembered siblings’ composition attempts. Deirdre recalled: “My brother kinda maybe did a bit of song-writing, but he wouldn’t be […] very professional or anything.” It seems that siblings’ composing at home did not have a clear influence on these teachers’ confidence or attitudes to teach composition in the same way Apfelstadt (1989) described the influence of siblings singing at home. Jill was the only teacher who mentioned childhood composition pursuits: “I did write my own little songs, but I think I did them with the letters not the [notes]…” She was the only teacher in this study who felt confident teaching composition: whether or not her composition pursuits as a child influenced her current confidence, cannot be confirmed for
In reality, pop music has been seminal to the empowerment of many belittle minorities and the creation of a more variegated culture. Instead of pointlessly demeaning pop music as being worthless or hackneyed, one should praise it for the plethora of changes it has brought to the United States. While it may not be able to evoke nostalgia of the foregone “good old days”, pop music is a moving force that constantly pushes against the fabric of the society, urging the public to accept new ideas or alter their point of view. Regardless of the vagaries in government, politics, or the economy, pop music has proven itself in the past half-century to be unstoppable in its ability to revolutionize the American culture. Perhaps best expressed by Sarah Churchwell, a Professor of American Literature at the University of London, pop music is so popular because “[it] provides not just the soundtracks to our lives...; it releases our emotion and helps us to articulate them”.
8). The Beatles only blew up from there. The Beatles used their knowledge of music to their advantage and made songs based on the music they would listen to (Polson para. 1). The Beatles listened to rock, pop, folk, blues, jazz, classical, and Indian, they also experimented with many instruments such as choral electric sitar, recorder, kazoo, harmonica, banjo, finger cymbals, flute, etc.
Ben McGrath of The New Yorker begins his praise of Bryant by stating that, “ Kobe Bryant and a business associate have a running bet on the staying power of the pop stars Katy Perry and Justin Bieber.” (McGrath) His discussion of the artists is not crucial to the main theme of the editorial, but it definitely does capture the reader’s attention. Most editorials drag out to be multiple pages long, so an engaging introduction helps to also keep the focus of the reader. McGrath continues and offers quotes from Bryant’s peers. He asserts that, “He spoiled us big time, this dude. Now we’re seeing what might happen when he’s gone.” (McGrath) The topic of the editorial is to praise Bryant’s career and McGrath accomplish this by providing compelling evidence from a Basketball Hall of Fame inductee, Earvin “Magic” Johnson.

It is almost impossible to detach the idea of musicking from the development of technologies, whether that is the development of a cello or the invention of synthesizers. It can be argued that communities have their own rules regarding technology although we also see how technology has allowed communities to thrive like electronic music which doesn’t exist without technological advancements. Popular music and it’s relationship with technology has become entrenched in the idea of authenticity or truth, which in many disciplines has become a concept that is hard to define or achieve. In the case of popular music, it is even harder to detach as the development of technology has allowed for the transmission and circulation of music which is now, more than ever, a global
The Impact of Commercialization on R&B Music: From the 1990s to the Modern Days Since its advent, the music industry was focused on making the most out of artists. Not a single music genre became an exception to that rule because the power of financial decisions is superior to the independent artists and their desire to keep up with the roots of their preferred genre. Unfortunately, the trends that are currently present in the music industry seriously limit the possibilities of those who do not follow those trends. Within the framework of this paper, the history of R&B and its course of development is reviewed so as to draw conclusions regarding the current state of this music genre and its nearest future. The author of this paper evaluated the most relevant evidence in order to come up with the most accurate conclusions and critically scrutinized the rhythmic and lyrical trends of modern R&B music.
In my argumentative essay I try to present the case that Nonviolent protesting used by Dr. Martin Luther King is far more effective than protesting that may contain violence. I state in the paper that “The nonviolent protests used by Dr. King would be effective during these times because they create sentiment, enhance legitimacy and it also shows the level of education and maturity of the movement.” In paper I try and clarify that all though nonviolent protests don’t always work they clearly have more advantages than violent protesting. In this paper I tried to draw an emotional conclusion but it was very hard because I had trouble truly emotionally connecting with any type of
However, listening to music does not always help. If you listen to a preferred genre, you are most likely to get distracted because your attention is drawn to the lyrics of the song and not to what you are doing. If you listen to a genre that you don’t like you may become stressed out and irritated. Studies show that listening to heavy metal, even if you like this type of music, is not beneficial as it is loud and aggressive. It is proven that classical music is the most beneficial because it is known as the best type of music for your health.
