Is Music Related to Crime?
Murder, Sex, and Violence. These are the things that rile up
the parents of ever young teen who yearns for rebellion and every
religious group who preaches acceptance, but accepts none.
These things make them grab their pitch forks and torches as they
walk towards the so called guilty party with nothing but ill
intentions on their mind. Who blindly march into battle not knowing
the context or basically anything relating to the "problem". You
may be thinking "Oh I wouldn't want my kid be doing that!" Now
before you start an angry mob, and start marching towards my
house hear me out. Murder, Sex, and Violence can be horrible
things in their own respects, but can you brand someone a
criminal for simply listening to a song with suggestive lyrics? And if
they actually end up doing anything should you blame the music or
the artist? I don't think so.
Research has shown that music doesn't make people commit acts of
violence as many people may think. The violent acts that these young
people are doing are actually because of their mental health. Who knew?
One study that supports this is group of scientists observed a group of
kids and monitored the music they listened to the study showed that kids
that listen to rap and metal music where actually less likely to commit
crimes then country music! The top was actually pop listeners. For
decades people have scapegoated music genres because it's easy to
shift the blame. Questionable lyrics are victim to this. Psychologists
Jefferson Jensen research professor at Clark University said "A lot of
people think heavy metal inspires violence, because it's violent music.
But, the surprising truth is that it doesn't make its fans violent it doesn't
even make them angry; it calms them down. They listen to it especially
when they're angry or sad, and it helps them empty out those feelings so
that they feel better afterwards." The same applies to all types of music.
People need to realize that music is an outlet, and mentality distressed
people are gonna do what they're gonna do regardless of what music
they listen to. It's just a matter of people not shifting the blame and taking
responsibility for their own actions.
Music has always been a scapegoat for the actions of teens
and young adults across the world; that's a fact. But, the
question is does it warrant the hate its attracting? Well in the
1600s people were burned alive for simple accusations that
they were "witches". What was this accusation based off of?
Someone's assumption that the accused was different from
them. So they burned them. Was that warranted? 1933-1945
millions of Jews and people of different races were killed for
what? Being different. Liking and believing in different things.
Did they deserve to be worked to death? Did they deserve to
not know if they were going to live to see the next sunrise? No,
they didn't. History has shown mass categorizing doesn't really
work out. With that said some people feel that profiling is
amazing, that it solves crimes, and saves lives. You know I
can't lie it may in fact do so. But, in this case the numbers show
that it's all assumed.
What is considered good and bad
music?
Since the beginning of time people have argued what kind of
music is bad? Whether it be cave mean fighting who can make
a better beat with their club; Or one of us fighting that rap is
better than country. But, what validity do these arguments
have? Is saying some thing sounds good automatically qualify it
to be a great song? Or just because the song is mainstream it's
great? No, and unfortunately people all around the world are
having this debate arguing that their music is in fact better. So
to find this I have created a list of qualities to determine whether
a song is actually a "good" or "bad" piece of music
-Bad qualities
•Is it predictable to the point it's annoying meaning
it's the same beats the same drops basically copy
pasted in your ears?
•Does it try to be serious, but come out as cometic.
For example Meek Mill released a song called
"Wanna Know" that was supposed to make a serious
diss track. But, what came out and after my research
I don't use this word lightly garbage.
-Good Qualities
•Is it done well in a way that everyone can tell someone put a lot of work in it? Does
the piece impress you? And does every sound or rhythm in the piece sound
necessary? Does it have an appropriate length with variety and familiarity. These
things are important because music production is becoming simpler and simpler as
time passes. But, that's no excuse for songs to sound basic and repetitive.
•Is there a balance between music quality and lyric quality? Meaning, does the piece
focus too heavily on the lyrics and not enough on the music. I'm not saying meaningful
lyrics and good sound don't go together. On the contrary I believe it makes beautiful
pieces of music. With that said I think it's the balance of both that makes it what it is.
Too much of something is never good.
•Does it connect with you on multiple levels ex Intellectual, Emotional, and Spiritual?
Does it bring out sensations in you that make you feel some type of way? After
listening to it do you feel richer, or happier, even more fulfilled? Now, a good song
doesn't need all three, but should either be a master in one area or have a balance of
them.
•Does the song have a beginning, middle, and end? This can be taken for granted
most of the time. But any good song should have emotion or tell a story that gives the
listener some type of relief or closure as the song comes to a close.
•Finally, does it withstand the test of time? This one is the simplest yet the most
important because a song that you can listen to over and over again without getting
bored of it and still feeling those same feelings is truly what makes this a master
piece.
These things are what make a song good and bad. So now I
ask you to be the analyst and put your songs through the test.
Prove that your songs are better.
Has popular music Devolutionized?
Popular music. These are the tracks people listen to on repeat, and for
the past 80 years that fact hasn't changed. That repeat button isn't
turning off anytime soon. But, should it? Some people say that popular
music is changing in a way to reflect that music is Devolutionizing. After a
lot of research and looking at multiple opinions on both sides I have
found that it's kind of true. The music industry is a forever changing
circuit, and even though the same stops may be made (music genres
making a come back) it's still constantly moving. With technology
nowadays, and the process of making music becoming simpler the
product is becoming less diverse. Now that's not to say all New Age
music isn't quality work because it really doesn't. Just the mainstream.
I'm 1991 a music revolution occurred. Rap music entered the
mainstream. It became the popular genre. Now what was rap know for?
Rap was know for its meaningful sharp lyrics and chord less structure.
Now I'm not saying it's bad. It's actually pretty good. But, back then the
things they talked about where different. Because, rap was only coming
into the mainstream the content of those lyrics were diverse and exciting.
Where as people now usually have one of those same
concrete meanings in their songs, and with the
mainstream success lasting over two decades the
meaning of superstar has never been so real. Sex,
Money, and Drugs. These things are constantly thrown
in our faces none stop. Add that to the easy process of
making computer generated beats the artist are
pumping out songs that we as a people know is the
mainstream, and we have liked it before so we eat it up.
Not all mainstream artist do that but a lot more than you
think do. People will lean towards the music that they
know. That's a fact. Now with the biggest revolution in
music history being this simplistic dissection of chords
and rhythms most music in the mainstream reflects that,
and is continuing to do so.
Putting the over used lyrics, similar beats, and pumping
it out faster than we can process through my what is
good and bad music you can see the pattern that
mainstream artist are doing. To top put a cherry on top
the more we buy into this mainstream the more we add
fuel to the fire not only giving them more money to
separate them from normal society, but giving them
more money to fuel the next cycle. Now this isn't a bash
towards the new age of music. In fact I encourage you
to search because their is great music out there that
underrated artist who are putting out that intelligently,
emotionally, and spiritually music that's way better then
this mainstream cycle were stuck in. The fact is music
has Devolutionized. It's just a matter of what's gotta
happen in order to change that.
Where is Music Going?
Simply, I believe music is going to keep getting simpler and simpler
until some thing happened that rattles the world to its core throwing
the "Megastar" off their high horse. Looking at all my research and
answering my questions I have seen the patterns within music, and I
believe I have the answer to where music is going. First and foremost
I wanna start by saying popular music has Devolutionized. With the
overly rich superstars, and the current mainstream not going
anywhere music is simpler then it's ever been. In my Devolutionized
piece I talked about since the past music revolution music itself has
become simpler in meaning, and how the new "Megastar" can't really
connect with us as they once did because of their mainstream
success. In the end of that piece I stated that were stuck in this
viscous cycle of giving money for the same content over and over
again. With society labeling new music and different music having a
direct relationship to crime the cycle is real, and nobody really knows
it. But, the question is what needs to happen in order for this to
change? The answer is revolution.
In the course of history music has gone through three changes or revolutions. Each
caused because of new technology, and foreign affairs. Now, what's going to cause
this revolution? War. I believe that war is going to hit and hit hard. This will shake the
fabrics of the United States, and bring everyone together producing a new type of
music that everyone will be able to connect to, and make everyone say what the
heck have we've been doing? How did I come up with this? In the 1970s Disco music
swept the nation with its good feeling beats and catchy lyrics. So why did this super
influential genre die? To find the answering we must look back to the 60s. The 60s
was considered the rebellious area. Fighting back against the march of war with the
conclusion being the people winning. So once the initial faze of disco wore off;
people started to realize that the meaningless lyrics behind disco was an insult to
what they had been fighting so long for. This lead to the burning of disco albums and
the complete taboo of the genre. I believe something similar will happen here. Where
not even the famous will be safe from the change, and they will be forced to produce
new material that will speak to the masses. Groups like System of a Down, Hopsin,
and Slipknot will rise because they will truly speak to the people like they have been
the past decade. In 1964, 1983, and 1991 revolution changed the music world
forever. I firmly believe that it will happen again through war. Personally the Middle
East Isis crisis. But, this will bring everyone together, and the music of good times will
change to a new more meaningful type of music. Until then we will continue to be in
the viscous music cycle producing clone music none stop retaining the set
mainstream we have today.

Contextualization Musical Influence
One regret I will always have is that I will never be able to see a Nirvana
concert in person. Kurt Cobain was an influence to teens across the nation.
Unfortunately he felt that he had to take his own life. What's really shocking is
how music it affected the world. Teens around the world started to commit
suicide in a similar fashion. This made my think wow music really does
influence people. It made me think just how much power does music have over
people. After some research I came across the 27 club. The 27 club is a group
of young talented musicians who all died at the age of 27 due to unfortunate
circumstances. The more I started to look into their deaths I started to see a
trend. When musicians died the impact on society is greater. Now I know how
obvious that sounds, but it lead me to really investigate more singers and
songs. What I found was that music is way more influential then people give it
credit for. Yes, music can push people to do horrible things, but it can inspire
and help create beautiful things. It can bring people to tears, make them laugh,
make them glad to be alive. Music can save lives. People underestimate
music, and I think that musicians need to be much more aware what power
they have. Yes, they can do amazing things, but they could also destroy. Kurt
Cobain's death was just one event that proves music is a very powerful thing.

Breakdown
West End Blues: This song not only help tear down the segregation in Jazz, but also fueled the civil rights movement in years to
come.
Over The Rainbow: This is the song that helped people after the Great Depression. It gave them hope that things will get better
Rudolf The Red Nose Reindeer: This song not only remembered by ever child for the past 60 years, but also lyrically gives the
message don't judge because someone is different
Walk the Line: Johnny Cash the best country singer ever. This was the time were he not only defined himself, but every other
person in history who was torn between two sides. Something people of all ages can relate to
Satisfaction: The British Invasion, not only does this song show how much music changed because of this revolution.Also the
songs lyrics reflected just how rebellious the 60s could be.
Bohemian Rhapsody: A song the people to this day debate the meaning. We can all agree that it does have something to do
with acceptance. Personally I believe it was Freddie Mercury coming out of the closet. With that said I think this song can really
relate to all generations because even though homosexuality is accepted the actual acceptance part is aspect.
Welcome to the Jungle: When you hear the 80s you think long hair and parting hard. I believe this song really describes that
rock and roll life style that every man women and child know, and what better song to commemorate the good times than
welcome to the jungle. They have fun and games.
Smells Like Teen Spirit: The first influential thing this song did was its popularity latterly everyone knows this song, but in the
bigger picture this song was the first to really speak to teenagers on such a massive scale.
Born This Way: The New Millennium. The 21st century. This song reflects all the things that society has accepted through the
the years, and how it doesn't matter what you look like, who or what you like because you were born the way you were and
don't let anyone put you down. Basically you do you.

Jazz
Originated in the black community Jazz is a combination of
European and African styles. Because of the popularization of
Jazz the 20s is widely know as the Jazz age. Jazz was so
popular that it influenced modern life back then it influenced
everything from fashion to race relation. Jazz helped weaken
the barrier between music segregation. Despite that "White
Jazz" was more mainstream because some radio stations
refused to play black tracks.
Genres
Blues
Blues widely loved now originally started in the black
community, and for a long time was only popular with the black
community due to the problems. Blues started "Race Records"
which are music geared towards a certain race. Although blues
was mostly in the black community it has evolved to all types of
people.

1950s
This era of music was brighter because of the end of WW2 and
the beginning of the civil rights music. RnB and rock helped fuel
the civil rights movement despite the dominance of all white
radio stations. This era also paved the way for many different
genres,and is responsible for defining the music we know today.

Rock and Roll. The start of one of the most influential music
genres of history. Paving the way was Carl Perkins. Rock
originally started as Rockabilly and gradually became its own
genre. Rock also helped push the civil right movement
Rock and Roll
Genres
Traditional Pop and Standards
This is the popular music before Rock came to the mainstream.
This style was heavily influenced by the previous decade
having hints of Jazz, Swing, and Big Band. These songs were
very melodic and catchy and laid the ground work for popular
music today.
Genres
Country
Johnny Cash and Hank Williams. I guarantee one of those two
names ring a bell, for they have defined country itself and made
it what it is today. Johnny was more Rockabilly while Hank was
more Honky Tonk. Almost everybody at the time was a bit
country.
Genres
R'n'B
R'n'B is a combination of Jazz, Doo-Wop, and Blues. It is the
father of many beloved genres today including Rock and Roll,
Soul, Motown, and Funk. Its unique sound swept the era if

Roots Rock and Hard Rock
Roots and Hard Rock were popular mid to late 60s. Roots combined the
sounds of folk, blues, country, and rock and roll creating a new good
sounding genre. Someone who attributed to Roots success was Bob Dylan.
Hard Rock made rock surprise surprise harder and heavier sounding. Hard
Rock was influenced by blues rock, garage rock, and R'n'B. Many musicians
of hard rock died at a younger age due to the lifestyle most rockers lived.
Genres
British Invasion
In 1964 a change happened in the US that would change music forever. In the early to
mid 60s bands from Britain started to find a crazy amount of success. Originally gaining
popularity for covering American songs the flux in popularity showed that their sound
was excepted this starting a new wave of music. The 60s was The Beatles era
considering they are debatably one of the most influential song in history.
Genres
Motown and R'n'B
Heavily Influenced by the civil rights moment. Gaining
popularity in black musicians. It really paved the way for African
American artist popularity today.
Genres
Surf Rock and Psychedelic Rock
Surf Rock began in South Carolina as a type of dance music, and was very
popular before the British Invasion. The most know Surf Rock band was The
Beach Boys. Surf rock has a smooth sound with most songs being about
surfing, girls and problems. Psychedelic Rock was popular during the late
60s and has a strong connection to Hippie Culture. Psychedelic was usually
listened to while under the influence. Two note worthy rockers are Jimi
Hendrix and Pink Floyd whose music is considered an "experience"
Genres
Protest Music
Protest music is more of a grouping than a specific genre. In
other words it's not necessarily what type of music it is; it's the
lyrics and what the song stands for that matters. The main
function of Protest Music is to spread awareness about
something. Protest music in notorious in the 60s because of
the Vietnam War.
Genres
Acapella music. Music of the voice. Songs that focus on
vocals instead of instruments. The 60s was the golden age of
Acapella. It originated in New York at a small record store
called Slim Rose. Named Acapella meaning "Music without
Music"

music. What brought this was all the war and pain of the 60s
people wanted to brighten their music, thus disco was born. Many
still questioned the man, thus birthed Punk Rock. The early years
thou people just wanted to vent their frustrations through Disco
Music.

Disco and Dance
20s was the Jazz era, and the 60s was the era of The Beatles. The 70s was
the age of Disco! But, despite that its popularization was brief. Why? The
meaningless message behind the songs. After a crazy protest filled 60s this
new music was considered an insult to the internal wars fought on American
soil. This realization lead to the taboo and destruction of Disco music. It
even got as bad as record burnings. Though it was utterly destroyed Disco
music still left a huge mark on society today. If I was a erring man I would
bet every person in the Untied States over the age of 8 knows a disco song.
Genres
Progressive Rock
Characterized by rock that was mixed with another genre. Like Rock and
Classical. Usually longer songs because of the mashups. When
progressive rock is played live it tends to be unpredictable with a go with
the flow vibe. A progressive rock album differs from the normal album. A
normal album will usually talk about many different things lyrics ranging
all across the board. But, a Progressive Rock album usually has an
overall theme throughout the songs sounding almost like it's one
gigantic song. This style really resonated with the people because of the
immersion that came with listening to it.
Genres
Punk Rock and New Wave
This style continued the rebellious nature of the 60s with a heavier faster
sound with equally deep meanings and heavy riffs all against the vision of
the "Man". The first punk band was The Ramones who were like the Beatles
but heavier. Many Punk Bands lived a drug filled life style while sticking the
finger to the man. New Wave is like Punks younger more innocent brother,
and with that comes a radio friendly sound as well as an electric flair.
Genres
Funk and Soul
Funk and Soul were the product of R'n'B, Jazz, and Soul lovers
of the 60s while adding more upbeat and psychedelic feels.
Funk is known for strange beats and socially conscious lyrics.
Plus, it has amazing costumes.
Genres
Solo Artist
I felt that these guys deserved honorable mentions, because
these guys had fairly good success and went almost
unnoticed.

Old pop

MTV
Music Television. Who knew this would change the world of music as we
know it. MTV is arguably the most influential thing throughout the 80s and
even all time. MTV started out in 1981 with its first music video the
appropriate "Video Killed the Radio Star". Thus, begun the round the clock
music video station. MTV is what launched stars into superstardom.
GenresGenres
Genres
New Pop Superstars
With the help of MTV popular music changed to focus more on the image
rather then the content. With this came a whole new breed of Megastars
becoming role models in fashion, talent and persona. These people
changed the meaning of superstar forever. The change wasn't entirely MTV
though. You have to give credit where credit is due and those superstars
who transcended into that next level of superstardom did so with great effort
and really dedicated themselves to pop culture.
Genres
Old Pop Stars and Their New Solo
Careers
A recurring pop trend was that older pop stars began to start anew
and start to make New Age music. Their success varied, but the
stars that shines the brightest can attribute their success to their
ability to adapt to the new age while simultaneously bringing back
that feeling of nostalgia that reminds you of the good old days.
Genres
One Hit Wonders
The artist who couldn't keep up with the always moving music
train. These are artist that produced greatness but, never were
able to reproduce the same quality in their music as before.
Many record labels took advantage of the weakness and saved
money not investing in the artist but the song instead. As the
world of talent grew names faded away.
Genres
Hip Hop and Rap
This type of music gained popularity in the mid to late 80s originating in
New York City. At first Rap and Hip Hop had a rocky start not having
much air time but, when MTV allowed it to be played it rapidly gained
success, and hit viewers like a freight train with its unique lyrics, fun
sound, deep meanings, beat boxing, and electric sounds. This is the
push that changes music forever.
Genres
New Wave
Continued from the 70s New Wave was very artistic music with unique themes and
clothing while tying in elements of Punk, Dance, and other Electronic Instruments.
This genre is the island of misfit toys ranging from all types of music that weren't
quite able to make the cut for the mainstream genres. But, they are all good in their
own respects.
Thrash Metal
An extreme genre of heavy metal. It has rattled the ages, and has angered
old people everywhere for years. Heavy Metal will always continue to do so
for years to come. It is a heavy sounding hard hitting aggressive type of
music. The 80s was the peak of Thrash Metal with groups like Metallica,
Anthrax, Slayer, and Megadeath at the head. Thrash Metal gets a lot of
attention for its controversial lyrics and aggressive tone. Not as many people
like Thrash today but it's still here and still going.
Genres
Hair Metal
Combining all types of rock mixed with a pop upbeat sound that are
always catchy and grab the listeners attention. Music with deep
undertones talking about women, sex, and groups combined with the
human experience of an all male group. This type of music is heavily
associated with the partying lifestyle. Also know for being very flashy.

An age with a abundant amount of variety in the genres of
music. Many old artist we're finding their light again; while new
artists were tasting fame for the first time. Both changed the
musical world as we know it.

1990s Part 2
The early 90s began the surge of popularity in techno and hip hop.
Groups like Technotronic and C+C Music Factory really were influential in
the growth of techno/dance music. In the past music like this was only
associated and popular in the black community. That changed thanks to
MC Hammer, Tone Loc, and Vanilla Ice who really helped destroy that
"black only" barrier
ContinueGo Back
1990s Part 3
In late 1992 or early 1993 the radio started to change. A new type
of rock sound was slowly sweeping the nation. Bands like Nirvana,
Pearl Jam, and Sound Garden really hit teens with catchy lyrics and
deep meanings. This began the start of grunge and alternative
rock. This popularity lasted until the mid 90s.
ContinueGo Back
1990s Part 4
After people were fed up and annoyed by the constant
negativity brought from grunge people were looking for the
next big thing. In came "Happy Rock". Bands like Hootie and
Blowfish and Sister Hazel.

1990s Part 5Choose Your Journey!Go Back
After the fall of "Happy Rock" came "Bubble Gum Pop". They dominated the
mainstream with the catchy easy to register tunes, and sexual oriented lyrics,
with videos even more provocative. On the other end popularity sparked in
boy bands like The Backstreet Boys; 98 Degrees; and N'Sync. Mainstream is
a crazy thing always in constant flux. The 90s is the perfect reflection of this.

New Millennium
2000. The new age. Our music has gone through so many changes and
shifts through the course of history and tho think it's only the beginning.
The thing about this new age is that all music is accepted Moseley. Sure
head bangers still get shunned but we're gradually starting to become
more accepting. We have also mastered the arts of optimism and
pessimism. We are truly in a new age of music.

Music's Influence and Evolution

  • 1. Without music, life would be a mistake -Friedrich Nietzsche Presentation by Nathan Roberts
  • 3. What is considered good and bad music? Has popular music Devolutionized? Is music related to crime? Where is Music Going? Go Back Musics Influence
  • 4. Is Music Related to Crime? Murder, Sex, and Violence. These are the things that rile up the parents of ever young teen who yearns for rebellion and every religious group who preaches acceptance, but accepts none. These things make them grab their pitch forks and torches as they walk towards the so called guilty party with nothing but ill intentions on their mind. Who blindly march into battle not knowing the context or basically anything relating to the "problem". You may be thinking "Oh I wouldn't want my kid be doing that!" Now before you start an angry mob, and start marching towards my house hear me out. Murder, Sex, and Violence can be horrible things in their own respects, but can you brand someone a criminal for simply listening to a song with suggestive lyrics? And if they actually end up doing anything should you blame the music or the artist? I don't think so.
  • 5. Research has shown that music doesn't make people commit acts of violence as many people may think. The violent acts that these young people are doing are actually because of their mental health. Who knew? One study that supports this is group of scientists observed a group of kids and monitored the music they listened to the study showed that kids that listen to rap and metal music where actually less likely to commit crimes then country music! The top was actually pop listeners. For decades people have scapegoated music genres because it's easy to shift the blame. Questionable lyrics are victim to this. Psychologists Jefferson Jensen research professor at Clark University said "A lot of people think heavy metal inspires violence, because it's violent music. But, the surprising truth is that it doesn't make its fans violent it doesn't even make them angry; it calms them down. They listen to it especially when they're angry or sad, and it helps them empty out those feelings so that they feel better afterwards." The same applies to all types of music. People need to realize that music is an outlet, and mentality distressed people are gonna do what they're gonna do regardless of what music they listen to. It's just a matter of people not shifting the blame and taking responsibility for their own actions.
  • 6. Music has always been a scapegoat for the actions of teens and young adults across the world; that's a fact. But, the question is does it warrant the hate its attracting? Well in the 1600s people were burned alive for simple accusations that they were "witches". What was this accusation based off of? Someone's assumption that the accused was different from them. So they burned them. Was that warranted? 1933-1945 millions of Jews and people of different races were killed for what? Being different. Liking and believing in different things. Did they deserve to be worked to death? Did they deserve to not know if they were going to live to see the next sunrise? No, they didn't. History has shown mass categorizing doesn't really work out. With that said some people feel that profiling is amazing, that it solves crimes, and saves lives. You know I can't lie it may in fact do so. But, in this case the numbers show that it's all assumed.
  • 7. What is considered good and bad music? Since the beginning of time people have argued what kind of music is bad? Whether it be cave mean fighting who can make a better beat with their club; Or one of us fighting that rap is better than country. But, what validity do these arguments have? Is saying some thing sounds good automatically qualify it to be a great song? Or just because the song is mainstream it's great? No, and unfortunately people all around the world are having this debate arguing that their music is in fact better. So to find this I have created a list of qualities to determine whether a song is actually a "good" or "bad" piece of music
  • 8. -Bad qualities •Is it predictable to the point it's annoying meaning it's the same beats the same drops basically copy pasted in your ears? •Does it try to be serious, but come out as cometic. For example Meek Mill released a song called "Wanna Know" that was supposed to make a serious diss track. But, what came out and after my research I don't use this word lightly garbage.
  • 9. -Good Qualities •Is it done well in a way that everyone can tell someone put a lot of work in it? Does the piece impress you? And does every sound or rhythm in the piece sound necessary? Does it have an appropriate length with variety and familiarity. These things are important because music production is becoming simpler and simpler as time passes. But, that's no excuse for songs to sound basic and repetitive. •Is there a balance between music quality and lyric quality? Meaning, does the piece focus too heavily on the lyrics and not enough on the music. I'm not saying meaningful lyrics and good sound don't go together. On the contrary I believe it makes beautiful pieces of music. With that said I think it's the balance of both that makes it what it is. Too much of something is never good. •Does it connect with you on multiple levels ex Intellectual, Emotional, and Spiritual? Does it bring out sensations in you that make you feel some type of way? After listening to it do you feel richer, or happier, even more fulfilled? Now, a good song doesn't need all three, but should either be a master in one area or have a balance of them. •Does the song have a beginning, middle, and end? This can be taken for granted most of the time. But any good song should have emotion or tell a story that gives the listener some type of relief or closure as the song comes to a close. •Finally, does it withstand the test of time? This one is the simplest yet the most important because a song that you can listen to over and over again without getting bored of it and still feeling those same feelings is truly what makes this a master piece.
  • 10. These things are what make a song good and bad. So now I ask you to be the analyst and put your songs through the test. Prove that your songs are better.
  • 11. Has popular music Devolutionized? Popular music. These are the tracks people listen to on repeat, and for the past 80 years that fact hasn't changed. That repeat button isn't turning off anytime soon. But, should it? Some people say that popular music is changing in a way to reflect that music is Devolutionizing. After a lot of research and looking at multiple opinions on both sides I have found that it's kind of true. The music industry is a forever changing circuit, and even though the same stops may be made (music genres making a come back) it's still constantly moving. With technology nowadays, and the process of making music becoming simpler the product is becoming less diverse. Now that's not to say all New Age music isn't quality work because it really doesn't. Just the mainstream. I'm 1991 a music revolution occurred. Rap music entered the mainstream. It became the popular genre. Now what was rap know for? Rap was know for its meaningful sharp lyrics and chord less structure. Now I'm not saying it's bad. It's actually pretty good. But, back then the things they talked about where different. Because, rap was only coming into the mainstream the content of those lyrics were diverse and exciting.
  • 12. Where as people now usually have one of those same concrete meanings in their songs, and with the mainstream success lasting over two decades the meaning of superstar has never been so real. Sex, Money, and Drugs. These things are constantly thrown in our faces none stop. Add that to the easy process of making computer generated beats the artist are pumping out songs that we as a people know is the mainstream, and we have liked it before so we eat it up. Not all mainstream artist do that but a lot more than you think do. People will lean towards the music that they know. That's a fact. Now with the biggest revolution in music history being this simplistic dissection of chords and rhythms most music in the mainstream reflects that, and is continuing to do so.
  • 13. Putting the over used lyrics, similar beats, and pumping it out faster than we can process through my what is good and bad music you can see the pattern that mainstream artist are doing. To top put a cherry on top the more we buy into this mainstream the more we add fuel to the fire not only giving them more money to separate them from normal society, but giving them more money to fuel the next cycle. Now this isn't a bash towards the new age of music. In fact I encourage you to search because their is great music out there that underrated artist who are putting out that intelligently, emotionally, and spiritually music that's way better then this mainstream cycle were stuck in. The fact is music has Devolutionized. It's just a matter of what's gotta happen in order to change that.
  • 14. Where is Music Going? Simply, I believe music is going to keep getting simpler and simpler until some thing happened that rattles the world to its core throwing the "Megastar" off their high horse. Looking at all my research and answering my questions I have seen the patterns within music, and I believe I have the answer to where music is going. First and foremost I wanna start by saying popular music has Devolutionized. With the overly rich superstars, and the current mainstream not going anywhere music is simpler then it's ever been. In my Devolutionized piece I talked about since the past music revolution music itself has become simpler in meaning, and how the new "Megastar" can't really connect with us as they once did because of their mainstream success. In the end of that piece I stated that were stuck in this viscous cycle of giving money for the same content over and over again. With society labeling new music and different music having a direct relationship to crime the cycle is real, and nobody really knows it. But, the question is what needs to happen in order for this to change? The answer is revolution.
  • 15. In the course of history music has gone through three changes or revolutions. Each caused because of new technology, and foreign affairs. Now, what's going to cause this revolution? War. I believe that war is going to hit and hit hard. This will shake the fabrics of the United States, and bring everyone together producing a new type of music that everyone will be able to connect to, and make everyone say what the heck have we've been doing? How did I come up with this? In the 1970s Disco music swept the nation with its good feeling beats and catchy lyrics. So why did this super influential genre die? To find the answering we must look back to the 60s. The 60s was considered the rebellious area. Fighting back against the march of war with the conclusion being the people winning. So once the initial faze of disco wore off; people started to realize that the meaningless lyrics behind disco was an insult to what they had been fighting so long for. This lead to the burning of disco albums and the complete taboo of the genre. I believe something similar will happen here. Where not even the famous will be safe from the change, and they will be forced to produce new material that will speak to the masses. Groups like System of a Down, Hopsin, and Slipknot will rise because they will truly speak to the people like they have been the past decade. In 1964, 1983, and 1991 revolution changed the music world forever. I firmly believe that it will happen again through war. Personally the Middle East Isis crisis. But, this will bring everyone together, and the music of good times will change to a new more meaningful type of music. Until then we will continue to be in the viscous music cycle producing clone music none stop retaining the set mainstream we have today.
  • 16. Contextualization Musical Influence Classify Musical Influence Go back
  • 17. Contextualization Musical Influence One regret I will always have is that I will never be able to see a Nirvana concert in person. Kurt Cobain was an influence to teens across the nation. Unfortunately he felt that he had to take his own life. What's really shocking is how music it affected the world. Teens around the world started to commit suicide in a similar fashion. This made my think wow music really does influence people. It made me think just how much power does music have over people. After some research I came across the 27 club. The 27 club is a group of young talented musicians who all died at the age of 27 due to unfortunate circumstances. The more I started to look into their deaths I started to see a trend. When musicians died the impact on society is greater. Now I know how obvious that sounds, but it lead me to really investigate more singers and songs. What I found was that music is way more influential then people give it credit for. Yes, music can push people to do horrible things, but it can inspire and help create beautiful things. It can bring people to tears, make them laugh, make them glad to be alive. Music can save lives. People underestimate music, and I think that musicians need to be much more aware what power they have. Yes, they can do amazing things, but they could also destroy. Kurt Cobain's death was just one event that proves music is a very powerful thing.
  • 19. Breakdown West End Blues: This song not only help tear down the segregation in Jazz, but also fueled the civil rights movement in years to come. Over The Rainbow: This is the song that helped people after the Great Depression. It gave them hope that things will get better Rudolf The Red Nose Reindeer: This song not only remembered by ever child for the past 60 years, but also lyrically gives the message don't judge because someone is different Walk the Line: Johnny Cash the best country singer ever. This was the time were he not only defined himself, but every other person in history who was torn between two sides. Something people of all ages can relate to Satisfaction: The British Invasion, not only does this song show how much music changed because of this revolution.Also the songs lyrics reflected just how rebellious the 60s could be. Bohemian Rhapsody: A song the people to this day debate the meaning. We can all agree that it does have something to do with acceptance. Personally I believe it was Freddie Mercury coming out of the closet. With that said I think this song can really relate to all generations because even though homosexuality is accepted the actual acceptance part is aspect. Welcome to the Jungle: When you hear the 80s you think long hair and parting hard. I believe this song really describes that rock and roll life style that every man women and child know, and what better song to commemorate the good times than welcome to the jungle. They have fun and games. Smells Like Teen Spirit: The first influential thing this song did was its popularity latterly everyone knows this song, but in the bigger picture this song was the first to really speak to teenagers on such a massive scale. Born This Way: The New Millennium. The 21st century. This song reflects all the things that society has accepted through the the years, and how it doesn't matter what you look like, who or what you like because you were born the way you were and don't let anyone put you down. Basically you do you.

  • 69. 1970s Genres & Solo Artist Choose Your Journey! Song List
  • 70. Disco and Dance 20s was the Jazz era, and the 60s was the era of The Beatles. The 70s was the age of Disco! But, despite that its popularization was brief. Why? The meaningless message behind the songs. After a crazy protest filled 60s this new music was considered an insult to the internal wars fought on American soil. This realization lead to the taboo and destruction of Disco music. It even got as bad as record burnings. Though it was utterly destroyed Disco music still left a huge mark on society today. If I was a erring man I would bet every person in the Untied States over the age of 8 knows a disco song. Genres
  • 71. Progressive Rock Characterized by rock that was mixed with another genre. Like Rock and Classical. Usually longer songs because of the mashups. When progressive rock is played live it tends to be unpredictable with a go with the flow vibe. A progressive rock album differs from the normal album. A normal album will usually talk about many different things lyrics ranging all across the board. But, a Progressive Rock album usually has an overall theme throughout the songs sounding almost like it's one gigantic song. This style really resonated with the people because of the immersion that came with listening to it. Genres
  • 72. Punk Rock and New Wave This style continued the rebellious nature of the 60s with a heavier faster sound with equally deep meanings and heavy riffs all against the vision of the "Man". The first punk band was The Ramones who were like the Beatles but heavier. Many Punk Bands lived a drug filled life style while sticking the finger to the man. New Wave is like Punks younger more innocent brother, and with that comes a radio friendly sound as well as an electric flair. Genres
  • 73. Funk and Soul Funk and Soul were the product of R'n'B, Jazz, and Soul lovers of the 60s while adding more upbeat and psychedelic feels. Funk is known for strange beats and socially conscious lyrics. Plus, it has amazing costumes. Genres
  • 74. Solo Artist I felt that these guys deserved honorable mentions, because these guys had fairly good success and went almost unnoticed. -Joni Mitchell -Carly Simon -Carole King -Billy Joel Genres
