  • About The 70s - 521 words
    About The 70'S Tonight I will be speaking about one of the most controversial eras of our time. The 70s. When terms like Pardy Hardy! Goin' Cruizin' Right On! ROCK ON!! and Shake your Booty were getting used in everyday conversation. Guys wore their hair long and in afros. Pet rocks were a kids best friend, and mood rings let you know if someone was feeling down. 8 tracks had came and gone, with cassette tapes taking over in a hurry. For the weekend fun, disco clubs were the place to be. If you didnt feel like dancing, cruising the highway while on your CB radio was the alternative, that was if the gas shortage wasnt to bad. You wouldnt have been alarmed if you saw a crazed naked guy running ...

    Blues Music Arts: A Brief History of the Blues 2000-06-30 A Brief History of the Blues Joseph Machlis says that the blues is a native American musical and verse form, with no direct European and African antecedents of which we know. (p. 578) In other words, it is a blending of both traditions. Something special and entirely different from either of its parent traditions. (Although Alan Lomax cites some examples of very similar songs having been found in Northwest Africa, particularly among the Wolof and Watusi. p. 233) The word 'blue' has been associated with the idea of melancholia or depression since the Elizabethan era. The American writer, Washington Irving is credited with coining the t ...

    ... the seventh, and sometimes the fifth scale-degrees were lowered a half step, producing a scale resembling the minor scale. (Machlis 578) There are many nuances of melody and rhythm in the blues that are difficult, if not impossible to write in conventional notation. (Salzman 18) But the blue notes are not really minor notes in a major context. In practice they may come almost anywhere. (Machlis 578) Before the field cry, with its bending of notes, it had not occurred to musicians to explore the area of the blue tonalities on their instruments. (Tanner 38) The early blues singers would sing these bent notes, microtonal shadings, or blue notes, and the early instrumentalists attempted to ...

  • Bob Marley - 1,668 words
    Bob Marley "Bob walked on to the stage in what I would later recognize as his inimitable saunter. It was awesome to watch him immediately memorize the crowd with his presence. His guitar slung over his shoulder, his Rasta locks flowing in unrestricted freedom, he generated a raw power of personality that overwhelmed his worshipers. Sounding his opening refrain "Hail Jah Rastafari!" and without another word he immediately launched into his opening song, "Concrete Jungle," which immediately brought the crowd to its feet." Robert Nesta Marley, was born on February 6, 1945. He was born in Nine Miles, Saint Ann, Jamaica. "Bob was the son of a white man, whom he never met. His mother Cedella also ...

    ... st cloud and the whitest dove will bring you upon the wind of heavens love. They will pass the planets and the stars, they will leave this lonely world of ours. They will escape the sorrow and the pain and they will fly. They need to fly because their endless journey has begun. They need to take their gentle happiness that is far too beautiful for dead and they need to cross over to the other shore. There they will find peace forevermore but hold their memories bittersweet until they meet the angels. They fly and they need not to fear. They shouldnt waste a breath or shed a tear. Their hearts are pure and their souls are free. Above the universe they will climb on beyond the hands of tim ...

  • Movie Reviewed: Phenomenon - 1,036 words
    movie reviewed: phenomenon approach adopted: humanist/ slightly auteurist John Travolta. Those two words used to send millions of women (and men) all around the world into a dancing frenzy back in the seventies. He could claim credit for the modern equivalent of the estrogen brigades (for the net crazy "X-philes") of Fox Mudler and Assistant Director Skinner. But nowadays, equipped with a paunch and that same disarming smile, he is proving himself to be more than a passing fever. Together with the great cast of this latest offering from the Disney studios, Travolta lifts "Phenomenon" (tele-kinetically, no less) above the mass of mediocre summer releases. For doubting thomases who thought his ...

Lennon's lyrics to 'Strawberry Fields Forever', however, dramatized a far more complex inner dialogue, characterized by stumbling qualifications ('That is, I think, I disagree'). Musically, the songs were similarly intriguing, with 'Penny Lane' including a piccolo trumpet and shimmering percussive fade-out, while 'Strawberry Fields Forever' fused two different versions of the same song and used reverse-taped cellos to eerie effect. It was intended that this single would be the jewel in the crown of their ne ...

  • The Blues - 360 words
    The Blues The Blues One can surely conclude that without the blues the face of music would be very different today. Originating in Africa during the time when Africans were being extracted for the slave trade, the blues found its way into the southern United States. This form of music dipped into the emotions felt by lonely slaves removed from their families and native land. Perhaps the only common thing between blacks and whites in this turbulent time were these notes of sorrow. White people accepted their slaves music and compared their misery to their own. This parallel was one of the only things shared by the clashing races. Since then the blues have worked their way into all forms of co ...

One of his colleagues in the folk scene, Pete Seeger, had formed The Weavers the year before. The Weavers earned fame from Leadbellys own Goodnight Irene six months after Leadbelly passed on, making more money than Leadbelly would ever have seen. Ledbetter and Seeger knew each other from their political connec-tions, and often played together at rallies for assorted causes. Seeger always had a lot of respect for Led-better, and was quoted as wishing Leadbelly could have lived only a little longer to see success at last. Seeger, having made a fo ...
