One of the reasons is that it involves catchy songs, that when you listen to it once, you would want to listen to it over and over again for the next couple of days, and even if the musical film is so old, it would make you want to rewatch it just to get into the songs. Another reason of course is the dance moves, musical films has songs on them, that involves amazing iconic dance moves that make it even more unforgettable and fun to watch. That is why we have listed down some of the best musical films of all time, if you haven't seen any of these films, then reading this would definitely make you want to get a copy to watch them over and over again.
We also see a great dance number with all the girls dressed in pink; overall these movies were great in the sense of taste and luxury. One of my favorite dance numbers were from Don Lockwood when he drops Kathy home. He 's so excited do to everything working out for him he finally knows where he stands. This was due because one of his friends figured out how Lina Lamont can sing without using her actual voice. Clockwork Orange challenges the film; in the sense that Alex, the lead character doesn 't resolve his problem through out the movie.
(Fig. 5) The still above (Fig.5) from Alex’s audition scene, is a still of one of the most memorable sequences throughout the film, the editing used is almost perfectly synched to the music. While the use of dance and movement that Alex portrays is sensual and very intimate but equally expresses her joy and passion for dance, it could therefore be argued that the use of editing, light, costume etc. are what advances the romantic plot forward in the narrative and that the dance sequences are merely a device used to fill space within the
Papageno is less interested in Reason than he is in finding a wife, and one of the opera's most charming moments comes when he's finally united with his equally flighty soul mate, Papagena. In this Opera, the significance comes across in the form of singspiel, a technique whereby the singers talk-sing instead of recitatives. Also hidden amongst the beautiful music, lay some dark and well kept secrets. This caused much controversy in Mozart’s
In American theatre, however, the 1950’s carried on the glory and success that was the “Golden Days.” One of the famous, notable plays from this decade was West Side Story, which was released in 1957. This performance became well known for its drama, excitement, and incredible music. Additionally, it was seen as being somewhat brash in language; for example, one scene featured the phrase “brass ass” (Fishko, 16). This is an interesting point to compare the changes in theatrical performances, as modern shows would not hesitate to include eve typically avoided four-letter-words.
The symphony was one of the Beethoven's greatest work and best-known works of the repertoire of classical music. Then, it was the greatest piece of music ever written. The genre of this piece was for symphony and suitable perform in the orchestral way. Then, the piece falls into classical period.
To those who have only heard the story of Gatsby in passing, it may seem like its position as a classic great American novel was acquired due to its drama and grandiosity. Words of love shared between Daisy and Gatsby are posted on Tumblr in decorative fonts and parties are planned across the globe that hope to replicate the merriment of Gatsby’s with all the glamour and flair of the 20s. What these romantic interpreters of The Great Gatsby fail to see is that all of this is still merely the mask these characters wear. When you see past the cover of the book, The Great Gatsby is a satirical take on the romanticized life of the rich, with its content exposing the true nature of life behind a shroud of wealth. By highlighting every great thing
Denny Schneidemesser – Crayon Dragon Easily my favorite composition of all time, Denny Schneidemesser’s Crayon Dragon is an impressive work of adventure. Not ironically, the title is as playful as the actual piece. But that is not to say that it is not well thought out. Schneidemesser is a modern composer who focus on writing film score pieces. He likes to play around with ideas and create dramatic, adventure filled pieces on the side, and I appreciate the small details he frequently uses.
The rising popularity of American Rom-com films has come to distinct perspectives on romance. Romantic Comedy is a genre that incorporate love and humor; a sub-genre of comedy films and romantic films. William Shakespeare is one of the well-known romantic comedy writers. His plays like A Midsummer Night’s Dream gave the basic concept of romance to many films: two people meet and live happily ever after (Yehlen n.p). Romantic comedy films create a cheerful and amusing atmosphere that consolidate romantic standards such as “true love”.
In the song’s lyrics Sebastian sings about all the wonderful things on the ocean floor to keep Ariel from leaving. The importance of this song to the show is that without the song no one would really know how much King Triton wanted to keep Ariel in the sea. Sebastian, King Triton’s some type of advisor, sang the song and talked about all the wonderful things hoping to convince Ariel to stay.(http://www.overthinkingit.com/2011/10/04/little-mermaid-under-the-sea/ & https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&es_th=1&ie=UTF-8#q=under%20the%20sea%20lyrics&es_th=1) I think that the show without this song wouldn 't have been an as good show. The only other way to portray the fact that King Triton forbid Ariel to go up to the surface would be by talking or shouting at her. The music and dancing are also one of the best dances from all of dances in the broadway performance, in my
Music all over the world has been shaping generations for many years now. The rock n roll of the 70’s and 80’s, pop and hip-hop of the 90’s and early 2000’s and finally, many different popular genres of the generation we now live in. Music provides a means of expression for all types of individuals. Some music even goes against the social norm and tries to bring attention to social injustices. The song “Crooked Smile” by rapper J. Cole tackles the issue of unrealistic expectations of women with the songs exceptional lyrics, broad metaphors, and positive tone.
