Tin Pan Alley songs swept Britain, much as British music invaded the United States in the sass. American songs such as “Chicago” and “Manhattan” were consistently among the most popular tunes in Britain in the sass. As a result of the invasion of American popular music, Britain was influenced by such culture. The Battles and other British rock groups helped create in the sass a milieu that emphasized youth, exuberance, and Innovation not only in music but In fashion.
Young Americans found Brothels actions as appealing as the music crossing the ocean. American publications carried advertisements that promoted Brothels products or American products that fit the cool Image. The “London Look” was epitomized by the most famous Brothels model of the era, “Twiggy” (Leslie Horns, b. 1949). Along with fashion, British television shows such as The Avengers and James Bond films furthered the “Swinging Britain” image. Rock And Roll Music In the 1 sass American rock and roll music dominated the British popular music scene more completely than jazz and the blues had done in the sass.
Reverend John Dates, who played the bass in his clerical robes. Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, The Rolling Stones, Battles stand for the era of the beginning of Rock&Roll. In my opinion, rock&roll music reflect the character of America, which is unique. Why only the rock&roll appeared in America in sass, while we Chinese didn’t even know It until 1 sass? That is because of the different culture and situation. I think that Chinese culture would never breed music such as rock. America is young, open, and full of passion, which is Just like the rock music.
II. Rap, Black Rage, and Racial Difference My music Is a product of who I am and where I came from. I’m made In America. I’m not from Mars or nowhere else. ” Rap music has emerged as one of the most delectate and controversial music genres of the past decade. A significant part of hip hop culture, rap articulates the experiences and conditions of African-Americans living In a spectrum of unrealized situations ranging from racial stereotyping and stigmatize to struggle for survival in violent ghetto conditions.
We can find that in this cultural context, rap provides a voice to the voiceless, a Oromo of protest to the oppressed, and a mode of alternative cultural style and identity form of cultural identity. It has become a powerful vehicle for cultural political expression. It is an informational medium to tune into, one that describes the rage of African-Americans facing growing oppression, declining opportunities for advancement, changing moods on the streets, and everyday life as a matter of sheer survival. In turn, it has become a cultural virus, circulating its images, sounds, and attitude throughout the culture and body politic.
And this low-class national music is coming globally popular, which unexpectedly tells us that things that are based on real life and nature are the most acceptable all over the world. Ill. Hip-hop Music mixes with memory. As we think back over the 20th century, every decade has a melody, a rhythm, a sound track. The century starts off blue: Robert Johnson selling his soul to the devil at the crossroads. Then the Jazz age: Louis Armstrong, Duke Longtime and, later on, Benny Goodman and “Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees. ” Indictment, things start to rock with Chuck Berry, “Hop-bop-a-lo-bop a-lop bam boom! He Battles, Earth Franklin, “a hard rain’s a-goanna fall,” Bob Marble, Steve Wonder. It might be better to forget the ‘ass–the posturing heavy-metal bands, Debbie Gibson, “Let’s get physical–physical,” the guy with the haircut in Flock of Seagulls. Perhaps the remembered sounds of R. E. M. , 1. 12 and Prince can drown them all out. *These words remind me of what happened to the music world in the late ass—hip hop. And we are living in the age of hip-hop. I think that hip-hop is all around us. It exists in the films we watch, the books we read, and the songs we listened to everyday!
Hip-hop represents a realignment of America’s cultural aesthetics. Hip-hop is the music what people need. * Nowadays, the life is busier and the entertainment is more. When we find that American culture of music really lead the popularity of the whole world, we have to confess that pop music is based on ordinary lives and thoughts. That is why classic music could never be popular—it is to noble and hard to wholly accepted. The most popular songs are all written in English, since America has already led the pop music world. The music like that of America is simple and full of passion, so we love it.
