  • Are Societies Ills The Fault Of Rock Music - 558 words
    Are Societies Ill's The Fault Of Rock Music? Rock has been blamed for many things in society such as rape, murder, and suicide. It's human nature to both need a reason for why something happens, and to pass the blame to someone and/or something else. In 1690's Salem, witches were blamed for all misfortune and innocents were hung. In 1930's and 1940's Germany, the Jewish faction of society was blamed for all that was wrong, and put to death. Now in the 1990's and 2000 music is blamed, will it have the same fate? Music has noconsciouness, will of it's own, or any inherent good and evil. Yet we blame rock for driving people to commit heinous crimes. Rock is not a living thing, it's not a virus ...

  • Rock Music - 1,231 words
    Rock Music In this essay, Im going to introduce to the reader a topic not touched a lot because of its complexity and its avoidance by conservative adults. This topic is, of course, Rock Music. During one week, I looked for information in the library and at my house, and from the information I gathered and my one knowledge about the topic, Im going to lead the reader to a better understanding of Rock n Roll. I chose to do Rock music because I can identify myself with it. Rock music is very complex. In fact "Its stylistic scope is to broad to be encompassed by any single definition" ("Rock Music", Groliers, p.1). The nearest definition suggests a kind of music that represents and speaks for t ...

  • 60s Music Influence On Our Society - 1,930 words
    60'S Music Influence On Our Society Sixties Music and How it Reflected the Changing Times Chris Montaigne Professor Shao Rhetoric II The 1960's in the United States was a decade marred by social unrest, civil rights injustice, and violence both home and abroad. These were some of the factors that lead to a cultural revolution. The revolution attempted to diverge the fabric of American society. Teenagers were living dangerously and breaking away from the ideals that their parents held. In the process they created their own society (Burns 1990). They were young and had the nerve to believe that they could change the world. Their leaders had lofty goals as well. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had d ...

  • A Lesson From Oliver - 5,155 words
    A Lesson From Oliver by David Jorgensen Like any other morning I was up at four, the day Oliver met with his violent death. At four in the morning the grass is wet. Now, it's still wet at 6 a.m. and even at seven, and these tend to be the hours of choice for most people wishing to appreciate the phenomenon of grass wetness. But it's a tragedy of economics that, when work starts at 5 a.m., one is not afforded the same time-options for grass appreciation as members of the sane world. Nor was this tragedy confined to my having to appreciate the wet grass while in a metabolic state more suited to hibernation. Four a.m. was my only chance to absorb all of northern Ontario's summer morning treasur ...

  • Advertising Analysis - 590 words
    Advertising Analysis My advertisement was found in a recent addition to recovery magazine. Recovery is a magazine aimed at teenagers that fall into the category that enjoy surfing, skating and mainly punk and rock music. The particular advertisement I chose was explicitly for sunglasses but it was also for the retail store that sells them. In this case the shop is called Glue. The theme of the particular advertisement is a virtual reality. Like the product is from another world but you the consumer can purchase then now. The actual virtual reality theme is portrayed in significant detail, which also sets this advertisement apart from the others. In the advertisement the background image whic ...

  • Although Musicians Had Been Recording Fiddle Tunes Known As Old Time Music At That Time In The - 4,440 words
    Although musicians had been recording fiddle tunes (known as Old Time Music at that time) in the southern Appalachians for several years, It wasn't until August 1, 1927 in Bristol, Tennessee, that Country Music really began. There, on that day, Ralph Peer signed Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family to recording contracts for Victor Records. These two recording acts set the tone for those to follow - Rodgers with his unique singing style and the Carters with their extensive recordings of old-time music. Jimmie Rodgers Known as the "Father of Country Music," James Charles Rodgers was born in Meridian, Mississippi on September 8, 1897. Always in ill health, he became a railroad hand, until ill ...

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.

    America annon The United Stated is currently the most influential country on the face of the earth. Not only concerning the issues of money and business but also our choices of music clothes and recreational activities.

Most of the Ramones songs did not last more than two minuets, but it was arguably the most exhilarating half-hour in rock and Roll. The Ramones very simple, fast high-energy music and monotone vocals became a prototype for much punk rock to follow (Charlton, Rock Music. 208). The Ramones were the first of the New York Bands to tour extensively, and their appearances in England in 1976 was later cited by many English punk bands as the original inspiration for that countrys do-it-yourself rock revolution.

    As Bees In Honey Drown On October 16, I went to see As Bees in Honey Drown presented by the Fortune company at Theater in the park, located in Flushing meadows park. The timing of the show was 6:00 p.m., but I got to the theater by 6:10 due to the unexpected traffic for the Mets game on the same night. When I got to the theater, people were still getting tickets for the show. I rushed into the theater to get a good seat (the show had general admission). Most of the audience were in their fifties and up. There were a few in their 20s who were friends of the actors. There were about 100 seats in the theater; about 60 were occupied. I chose to see a play in a small theater because I felt that I ...

He did not like to go out on tours; he also lost the desire to record music within the band. It had become routine to him, and he was sick of it. In an interview done with George and John in 1967 referring to stop touring, it was said that it was like an end of a cycle. When they were in Liverpool, it was like they understood the crowd, but once out touring around the world, it was different. There was a new different type of audience each day; it was no longer what they were use to (www.askjeeves.com March 30, 2000). As many old bands ...

    Dave Matthews Band Who is the Dave Matthews Band? Five years ago that question would have gotten nothing more than a weird stare and a stupid look. But today you would get everything but that. The Dave Matthews Band is one of the most successful bands of the late 20th century. But many ask how a band so new has become so successful in such a relatively short period of time. Many come to wonder if it was their music, their look, or possibly something else that has made the Dave Matthews Band what they are today. It is my opinion that the Dave Matthews Band's success comes from their earth-toned acoustical music, their buttoned flannel shirts and their khaki pants, their heart-laced lyrics, an ...
