I am a music enthusiast and I think that the Beatles are one of the most influential band in the 20th century. If The Beatles had not existed, the modern music would have been different. The Beatles were formed in Liverpool during the 1960s. In this decade the society and the culture was changing and the Beatles had a rebellious image that the English youth liked. But later, they reached the biggest musical success of modern history in the world, in just a few years.
These two week long bed ins for peace helped people take their minds off of the raging Vietnam war and turned into a media spectacle.He tried to have a bed in in America but was denied, instead he had one in Montreal. John’s peace movement was after the beatles broke up so John was writing his own music about anti-war and peace for mankind. Songs such
Blink-182 was unique among other bands because the band was interested in writing songs that appealed to their audience and their fans. They never cared to write songs that appealed to adults. The band never really took themselves all that seriously, their lyrics were not very hard to understand and there music could relate to any teeanager. They managed to gain a lot of popularity with their catchy music, and unruly appearance and I think that this is why the band gained so much popularity with youth around the world. I definitely feel a personal connection to the band.
Arnold cared about his life and his money. He was not always that way, but he changed into a new person during the war. When he turned to the British forces, he impressed everyone once more, but this time with his selfishness. Americans’ first reaction was “shock and rage”(Sheinkin). They could not handle what Arnold had done; they did not understand who would betray his/her own country for money and wealth (Sheinkin).
The song was successful because it spreaded the anti-war messages across America and people agreed with them. The song was also noteworthy because it was the most popular protest song in the 1970’s to 1980’s. Back then when the government told men to go fight in the war they would listen, but during the 1970’s it was the first time people were starting to be against the idea of going to war and fighting. This song became popular because no one ever heard a song that boycotted what the government was telling them to do. So, it became successful because it was different than all the other songs written back then.
No one knew exactly how this new idea would affect the United States, but we had to take a leap of faith. Having a president ended up being a great thing for America, it brought a sense of leadership without one person having too much control. Washington, Adams, and Jefferson each had a different way of growing up, they had distinct characteristics, and they lead in various ways. George Washington was born on February 22, 1732, in Westmoreland County, Virginia. His father died when he was eleven years old, so he lived with his mother and would move around Virginia to stay with relatives.
The terrorist attacks on 9/11 have caused many debates over the years since they occurred back in 2001. Two American planes were hijacked and ran into the twin tower buildings, another was hijacked and headed for the pentagon, but thankfully never made it. Thousands of Americans lost their lives on the days of the attacks and to this day the sorrow hangs with us. Security was a huge debate of the time because America is supposed to be the safest nation there is, so how did this happen? America had lots of changes to make the attacks on September 11, 2001.
Throughout the existence of the United States music has been a part of American life, but it wasn’t until the introduction of lyrics that songwriters were able to tap into truly relatable music. A good artist will reach his target audience one way or another it just depends on the method they use. This is why so many artists over our history have used infamous wars to create legendary tracks. These tracks are recorded because of an artist's passion, they're trying to get their views on matter across to the public. Any war will automatically have a side opposing it, musicians took advantage of this to express their displeasure through song and compiled an array of memorable lyrics and tunes.
Granvile states, “The teenagers of the 1960s rejected materialism, conformity, and conservatism that they regarded as the hallmarks of their parent’s generation (313). Counterculture was not only taking place in the United States, it was also occurring in the United Kingdom. According to Miles, “What we consider the British counter-culture began in the mid-60s. There had always been a bohemian underground, a discreet gay scene and a community of artists, but they kept their heads down. Full employment had enabled the growth of youth culture – Mary Quant, the Beatles – but many young people wanted to be
John Lennon John Lennon was one of the most inspirational singers that have ever lived.This man made dozens of beautiful songs that taught millions about peace and love.He could even sing and play popular songs when he was only 11 years old.Nothing could stop John Lennon.He even started movements like the bed in for peace protest he and his wife started.John Lennon did all of this for 1 goal, to stop war and violence in the world we live in Lennon was one of the biggest inspirations of his time and he still is to many people. During John Lennon’s career there were many factors against Lennon,but still John Lennon was unstoppable in his goal for world peace.First off Nixon hated John Lennon,Nixon used Lennons marijuana use as an excuse to try and deport him but in the trial they discovered that he only tried to deport him in order to end John Lennon from leading people against the vietnam war. Even with this he could not bother Lennon.Even after this he continued to make
For example, Metallica faced major success in the 1980s and 90s. They didn’t follow the “quit while you’re ahead” rule, and their music suffered for it. While Led Zeppelin and other bands and artists that suffered similar fates, such as Nirvana and Amy Winehouse, are tragic, they are remembered as legends. Led Zeppelin would not have the impact that they have today if they were still touring. The Rolling Stones are still performing, and while they are a hugely successful band, they’ve become something of a joke for their old age.
“John Quincy Adams had approached the presidency with several political responsibilities. John Quincy had failed to develop the relationships needed for the presidential role he had participated in. His opponents had their mindset as to have him a one-term president.” The first year of his four year term, he had proposed many programs that he knew would further the science as well as make the spirit of the enterprise and inventions increase and better in the United States. He had helped increase the highway and canal building in the United States, which linked to different parts of the country helping the public lands of the conservation. During this duration of change, they did not believe that all of this change was actually happening in the United States.
It also did not help that they did not have a government or an army. This war helped us get independence for our country. The ages 16-60 fought but most of the men were unknown. This was the top event for American history because it gave our country independence from the British. Second event is, The Civil war it started Apr.
The reading I will focus on this week is an article written by the journalist Kays Gary for the Charlotte Observer in June 1956. In the reading, Gary recalls his time spent with Elvis Presley during an interview with the local press before an early performance in North Carolina. Although Elvis was evidently being very flirtatious and open with his young female fans on the afternoon of the interview, his attitude towards the media is notably more hostile, with the singer remarking that “them critics don’t like to see nobody win doing any kind of music they don’t know nothin’ about” (p. 19). This bitter response to the criticism faced by Presley after his appearance on the Milton Bearle Show appears to indicate that Elvis believed rock and roll to have a high cultural value that made it inaccessible and unintelligible to certain groups of people (in this specific instance, journalists). However, when asked why he does what he does, Presley retorts with the disappointingly honest line that he performs for the money and would be willing to abandon rock and roll should a new style become more lucrative (p. 20).
“Love is the most durable power in the world”,said the person who changed the world and millions of lives. Martin Luther King Jr(MLK).MLK was a revolutionary man that succeeded in gaining freedom for colored people. Although it may seem that MLK always wanted to speak against racism and make sure he changed the world before he left it, that wasn 't always his plan. In fact,he was going to become a lawyer, but then thought that he could be of better assistance if he was a pastor. Many people wouldn 't care if they 're helping others or not; they just care about the paycheck.
