  1. 1. Music Video Mikey Pearce
  2. 2. 1950’s <ul><li>Rock and roll dominated popular music in the 1950s. The musical style originated and evolved in the United States during the late 1940s and early 1950s, and quickly spread to much of the rest of the world. Its immediate origins lay in a mixing together of various black musical genres of the time, including rhythm and blues and gospel music; in addition to country and western.In 1951, Cleveland, Ohio disc jockey Alan Freed began playing rhythm and blues music for a multi-racial audience, and is credited with first using the phrase &quot;rock and roll&quot; to describe the music.2 </li></ul><ul><li>Artists such as Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Fats Domino, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Big Joe Turner, and Gene Vincent released the initial early rock and roll hits. </li></ul><ul><li>The 1950s saw the growth in popularity of the electric guitar, and the development of a specifically rock and roll style of playing through such exponents as Chuck Berry, Link Wray, and Scotty Moore.3 </li></ul><ul><li>Chuck Berry, whom is considered to be one of the pioneers of Rock and roll music, refined and developed the major elements that made rock and roll distinctive, focusing on teen life and introducing guitar solos and showmanship that would be a major influence on subsequent rock music. </li></ul><ul><li>Rock and roll has also been seen as leading to a number of distinct sub-genres, including rockabilly (see below) in the 1950s, combining rock and roll with &quot;hillbilly&quot; country music, which was usually played and recorded in the mid-1950s by white singers such as Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly and with the greatest commercial success, Elvis Presley. </li></ul><ul><li>Elvis Presley, who began his career in the mid 1950s, soon became the leading figure of the newly popular sound of rock and roll with a series of network television appearances and chart-topping records. His energized interpretations of songs, many from African American sources, and his uninhibited performance style made him enormously popular—and controversial during that period. </li></ul><ul><li>Acts like The Crows, The Penguins, The El Dorados and The Turbans all scored major hits, and groups like The Platters, with songs including &quot;The Great Pretender&quot; (1955), and The Coasters with humorous songs like &quot;Yakety Yak&quot; (1958), ranked among the most successful rock and roll acts of the period. </li></ul><ul><li>In 1958 the American musician of Mexican descent Ritchie Valens also gained much success in the United States with his adaptation of the Mexican folk song &quot;La Bamba&quot; which he transformed with a Rock and roll rhythm and beat, which made Valens a pioneer of the Spanish language Rock music throughout Latin America. </li></ul><ul><li>Commentators have traditionally perceived a decline of rock and roll in the late 1950s and early 1960s, with most notably the death of Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper and Ritchie Vales in a tragic plane crash in 1959 and the departure of Elvis for the army . </li></ul>

  4. 4. My Idea <ul><li>I wanted to create a 1950s video with a modern song </li></ul><ul><li>It will be set in an authentic TV studio, the one the likes of Elvis and The beatles will have performed in. </li></ul><ul><li>It will pan around the studio which will have a real feel to it and the band will be playing there instruments so we will pu emphasis on this. </li></ul>
