Rock music into four sections: Rock of the 50's, of the 60's, of the 70's
and of the 80's. Within these sections I'm also going to discuss several

The first section of this essay is Rock n' Roll of the 1950's, when
Rock n' Roll was born. It emerged from rhythm and blues, a music similar to
jazz played by blacks. This kind of music started to attract white

The Ideals Of Instrumental Music
... music and poetry. Furthermore, a large number of leading composers in
the 19th century were extremely interested and articulate in literary
expression, and leading Romantic novelists and poets wrote about music with
deep love and insight.
The conflict between the ideal of pure instrumental music (absolute
music) as the ultimate Romantic mode of expression, and the strong literary
orientation of the 19th century, was resolved in the conception of program
music. Program music, as Liszt and others in the 19th century used the term,
is music associated with poetic, descriptive, and even narrative subject
Stan Kenton & His Orchestra
... to him and that he had no trouble at all assimilating and elaborating upon the imaginative and unorthodox constructions used by the leading European Impressionists of the day; Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel, Arnold Schonberg and Igor Stravinsky, all of whom he later celebrated in many of his own classically-inspired compositions: 'Theme For Sunday,' 'Sunset Tower,' 'Concerto To End All Concertos.'
Upon graduation from Bell High School he worked during the day as a rehearsal pianist in dance halls and theaters. At night he paid his dues in a succession of after-hours bars, clip joints and five dollar-a-night speakea ...
The Singing School: An American Tradition
... Psalters compiled in
Europe. It was not until 1640, however, that the Puritan ministers in America
made their own translation of the psalms. The Bay Psalm Book was the first book
printed in British North America and was widely used. The most distinguishing
feature of this book was its rhymed and metered English poetry. This allowed a
few tunes, having the same rhythms as the poetry, to be used as melodies for
many psalms. In addition, the text employed the vernacular, and consequently
promoted memorization. The ninth edition of the Bay Psalm Book, published in
1698, was the first edition published with tunes. T ...
Who Are You?: Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder
... adoptive hometown -- an audience from which journalists, low-level PR flacks, photographers and other industry hangers-on have been barred. It's a hand-picked crowd of the faithful who have waited a long time for this moment. Apart from scattered dates on their abortive 1995 tour, Pearl Jam have not sustained a tour in more than two years. The scene is set, then, for a legendary show -- the band's triumphant return.
You'd never guess it from Vedder's scowl. "Have you heard the new album?" he asks in his husky baritone. The applause is scattered. "Well," Vedder mumbles, "you're about to hear it again." With that, Pe ...
... it reflected their life and what they were really like. Today's performers,
however, do not act like that in real life, for the most part. Today,
performers take on challenges, like the dare of a child. . . "Betcha won't do
it!" These rock performers cannot turn down a dare or back away from even the
slightest bit of public notoriety. By listening to one of their
"questionable" albums, it is easily noticeable how they thrive off of it. All
of these performers do have one thing in common, at one time or another,
censorship made them victims because of their social unacceptable actions or
the content of thei ...
Appearance Vs. Reality Of Modern Music Affect On Teenagers
... subject to power
corruption but so is the "rock star". This is the important thing to
remember when dealing with the subject at hand.
There are many reasons why teenagers cling to "rock stars", but
there are always more popular reasons than others. One main reason that
this occurs is because of the accessibility of what these "rock stars" are
publishing. Think of all the things that teenagers have in front of them
day-in, day-out; radio, television, clothes of peers etc. All of which are
covered with popular musicians. So if they are so accessible then most
people are aware of this so they start to pay attenti ...
Coparison Between Two Guitars: Ibanez 453 RVC And The Gibson Les Paul
... called the pickups. A
pickup is a really sensative box that is attached to the body in between the
bottom of the neck and the bottom of the bridge. The purpose of a pickup is to
"pick up" the sounds of the notes or chords that are being strummed. There are
many different types of pickups; for instance, the Gibson Les Paul has pickups
that are called Humbuckers, which are much higher and of a better quality than
the pickups on an Ibanez. The Ibanez comes with regular music store pickups
that are not bad but do not have the quality of the Humbuckers. So having
better quality means that the pickups are more sensat ...

Adam Sandler's "What The Hell Happened To Me?": How Music Affects Culture
... we grow up and
are affected by culture. Cultural traits presented in this song are how we teach
children and what we subject them to. Our methods of education and entertainment
both affect how we turn out in the long run. The song shows how these traits
affect how people grow up, and what they value in life. For example, the song
talks about selling lemonade, eating popcorn, and watching parades. Then it goes
on to say he's "only happy when [he's] drinking JD" The point is that people are
changing because of society and our culture's lack of certain elements, such as
respect and discipline.
