  • Data Mining Music Industry - 274 words
    Data Mining & Music Industry Bruce Haring, in his article "Datamining: Spam or Future of Music Business" appearing in Inside.com states that "Bands are beginning to embrace the data-collection method ... " and then poses the question, " ... will some fans be put off by the tactic?" Disappointingly, he fails to answer the question of fan response to datamining (DM) in the article and instead gives many examples of why it is a huge element of the future of the music industry marketing, and at present is grossly underutilized. Hootie & the Blowfish is a band that effectively uses DM. They recognized early on the value of building a database of their fan's shopping preferences. Fan data had form ...

  • Influence Of Teens On The Music Industry - 420 words
    Influence of Teens on the Music Industry From the Beatles to N Sync teenyboppers have had an iron grip on the music industry that as far as any can one tell wont be released for many years. There are three main reasons that come directly to mind; age, money, and psychological aspects. These three motives will be embellished on later in the essay. Before we start I would like to propose a question that will clarify this essay a little better. Why does such a small portion of the America society indirectly control such a major part of our culture? The first and most influential part of the explanation to this horrible problem is age. Boys and girls just beginning their teen-age years (12-14) d ...

  • Mp And The Music Industry - 1,254 words
    Mp3 And The Music Industry Imagine a world where you did not go to the music store and buy a CD. You would have $15 extra in your pocket every time. Now you ask 'why would I not go out and buy CD's? I like to hear groups I like'. The answer is simple. There is something new out there in the world that makes it possible for you to never buy a CD again. There is only one catch: it's illegal. Illegal in the sense that you are committing copyright infringement every time you participate in this new format. Mp3 is this file format.

  • A Textual Analysis - 1,314 words
    A Textual Analysis of Nothing Else Matters by Metallica: An Open Mind and True Heart "Metallica plays heavy metal music." This is a common stereotype of the band. "Their songs consist of nothing but meaningless screaming, while banging their guitars as loud as possible. Hordes of incomprehensible fans jump around in circles flailing their arms in the air screaming the so-called lyrics to their songs. It is not music." Numerous people believe this in all sincerity. The song "Nothing Else Matters," by no means falls under the heavy metal category. It is the type of song that would be played for a slow dance. Through the use of ethos and pathos, the author, James Hetfield, connects with his aud ...

  • A View On Censorship And The Government - 1,356 words
    A View On Censorship And The Government Daniel Bagwell Ms. Waggoner English 111 15 November 2000 A View on Music and the Government The censorship of music and other forms of entertainment by the government have long been the topic of discussion among social and political circles. Some forms of censorship such as warning labels for parents can be helpful. However the censorship of music is just not right, and the government has no right to do so. All too often the government gets on a self righteous feeling and thinks that it is it's right to control what goes in or out of this so called "free nation's" minds. Censorship in music falls into one of those categories in which the American peopl ...

But the treatment, with Reeves' dark, intimate, velvet tones gliding over a muted backing, was something different again. The result brought him instant stardom. During the early 1960s, he also continued to dominate the US country charts, with hits including Guilty (1963), and "Welcome to My World" (1964). Tragically, on a flight back to Nashville from Arkansas on July 31, 1964, Jim and his manager ran into heavy rain just a few miles from Nashville's Beery Field and crashed, killing both men.

  • Billie Holiday - 545 words
    Billie Holiday Hi, I am Eleanor Fagan Gough, or most of you know me as Lady Day or Billie Holiday. I am known, as one of America's most memorable and influential singers of all time. I was born in Baltimore, in a run down apartment, in 1915. My mother had a very unsteady, low paying job, and my father ran out on us when I was very young. I had no choice but to try and find a way to make money for my mother and I. This led me to become a singer and a well-known legend. I am influential, people say, because I changed the style of jazz music, came from poverty to fame, and overcame a terrible drug addiction in my career.

    Blaxploitation - Dolemite vs The Mack Blaxploitation - Dolemite vs The Mack In the early 70's, "Mainstream films did nothing to give black people a sense that they were powerful and physically beautiful, or, at least for black women, that they were desired if they were darker than a brown grocery sack." (McKissack). That is why blaxploitation films started to come out. The genre was the most productive period in black film making, but it is often difficult to track the titles down. "At a time when most black men realized a fundamental freedom and power over their lives was denied at every turn, the pimp, for better or worse, was equated with self assertion". (Quoted in McKissack). Two movies ...

  • Boundaries Of Ownership - 3,055 words
    Boundaries Of Ownership BOUNDARIES OF OWNERSHIP Nobody owns this essay. It is important that I make this very clear and that I do so at the earliest possible moment. I must do this because the essay that you are reading is about intellectual property, and that means that this essay must be self-referential. When one writes or speaks or communicates in any way about intellectual property, one is dealing with some of the most basic rules of the very medium in which one is operating. There is no neutral ground here, no possibility of genuine detachment or objectivity. Either I am going to claim the protection of the current laws that apply in the United States and under the World Intellectual P ...

  • Cds Market Change Due To Technology - 751 words
    Cd's Market Change Due To Technology CD's Market Change Due to Technology At the beginning of the twenty first century, there has been a major change in technology that deals with the music industry. CD burners, Napster, and other internet sites that allow free downloading of all types of music has caused the actual CD selling in stores to decrease and the price will increase and if this continues it will affect many businesses and musicians salaries. This type of change is happening all over the world, but the major dispute with how fair or right this type of technology actually is to musicians is occurring mainly in North America and Europe. In the CD market, the actual affect is on the se ...

  • Censorship Of Rap Music - 794 words
    Censorship of Rap Music Recently we have been hearing a lot about the need for censorship of television and recording industries. Whether it is the cartoon Beavis and Butthead, the controversial television drama NYPD Blue or rap recording artists, someone always s eems to arguing about their negative effects on society and the need for government regulation. Being a fan of rap, I am particularly interested in issues effecting regulation of the recording industry and rap artists. Popular "gangsta rappers" include Dr. Dre, Snoop Doggy Dog, Tupac Shakur, Ice Cube, and Ice Tea. Many are outraged at the explicit lyrics of the songs and the lifestyles of these artists. Snoop Doggy Dog and Tupac Sh ...

  • Computer Fundermentals - 1,721 words
    Computer Fundermentals The society in which we live is complex and sophisticated. As consumers we demand a variety of goods and services to enable us to maintain the quality of life we enjoy. In order to satisfy these demands, suppliers must produce the goods and services, which the consumer wants by combining factors of production such as land, labour and capital in the most efficient manner. To do this the hiring of workers, rent or purchase of the appropriate premises, and maybe, even investing in plant and machinery, as well as the raw materials needed to produce the final product.

It creates a centralized system that allows people to log on and use the Napster search engine to connect with individual computer hard drives anywhere in the world and share music(much of which is stolen according to Napsters critics).

It also provides media fans a vehicle to identify new artists and a forum to communicate their interests and tastes with one another v ...

    Copyright Laws And Regulations On The With the new millennium now here, what are some of the changes headed towards us? Now that we have Y2K out of the picture, we unfortunately have something new to fear, well at least for some of us. The stealing of intellectual property is on the rise and there are very few copyright laws and regulations out there to prevent these things from happening. Since we are now living in the digital age it is very easy for anyone to get a hold on intellectual property and spread it around to whoever is online. The hard thing is to track down who these people are. More government regulations are needed on the Internet to protect intellectual property. Without more ...

  • Dave Mathews Band - 708 words
    Dave Mathews Band According to the American Heritage Dictionary a poet is someone who writes poems. If I were to give my own definition of a poet it would say a poet is someone who can take a group of words and put a hundred different emotions and meanings into them. This is what Dave Mathews does with his lyrics; he takes his emotions and puts them into words. This is what makes him a poet and a master of words. From the debut of his first album Remember Two Things, Mathews has instructed the listener to do everything from love to relax and enjoy the day. He does this through his lyrics, taking his experiences and emotions putting them to words and passing his knowledge to us. It is very ra ...
