Music Influence Music has been around since the beginning of time even though we do not see how music in the ancient world was even music. Since then music has gone through many stages where singers/songwriters relay messages through their music because of the world corruption and how it affects our lives. Music is a part of what society is whether its accepted or not, it can’t be gotten rid of. Music takes on the role of how the world is around us. Most people may not even realize it, but songwriters incorporate world events into the songs we hear every day.
My response is its art for the ears how can you not appreciate the many different styles and forms of music to deny one is just being closed minded to the beauty and the heart that went into the song or music. I may not like the style or agree with every artist views but I feel the need to at least give everyone’s music a try, never know what can happen. A new band or artist can become one of your favorites. The love that I have for music has surprised many of my close friends and family. They sometimes laugh at me for knowing certain songs that they would never expect for me to like.
People all around the world heard this song and began to appreciate Jackson for telling of what most people never get a chance to see or experience. This song also helped people understand why we should try to give back instead of being selfish and keeping everything that we have for ourselves. Michael Jackson always told a story in his songs. By using this style in his music, many people could relate to the message that Jackson was trying to send. In “Man in the Mirror” the plot of the song is “the man” walking through the streets on a winter day.
Very little "jamming" was put into it and the themes in the lyrics were more morbid and serious as ever before. Some Devil is more about giving Matthews a platform to showcase his singer and songwriter side, by releasing serious and straightforward tunes with a slower beat. The album causes many to ask themselves, could there be an outstanding poet lurking behind Americas favorite "frat" boy band? One of the songs on this album, "Gravedigger" might stand out to one who has listened to the band before. Instead of
Another one of Marley’s friends, Jimmy Cliff, also a musician, introduced Marley to a producer, Leslie Kong. Shortly after getting started with Kong, Marley left due to the fact that he wasn’t being paid. Shortly after this, Bob, Buddy and a few other friends started a band called the Wailing Wailers. Unfortunately the first few albums created were not very successful so two of the men quit resulting in Bob and Buddy to carry on alone. Eventually the Wailing Wailers found more men to join the band and Bob Marley became the leader and songwriter of the band.
Even some of the most brilliant music documentaries solely focus on the artists career and their rise as music icons, but this documentary also emphasizes Dylan as a voice for political injustices of the time as well. “The reverence was for Bobby, but also what he created,” says Peter Yarrow of Dylan’s activity in both the Civil Rights and Free Speech movements. Footage of Bob Dylan’s presence in these major moments in history really convey how much more he was to his fans than a pop star. Dylan had so much to say and share, and he wrote music his fans loved and were able to relate to in the early 60s. He represented the youthful population desiring change, and being that these were simpler times, fame was not denoted by a dollar amount, but by a fan base, which Bob Dylan created on various levels.
Bob Dylan in 1960’s America The 1960s in America brought about great change not just to the country and its people but to music as well. The decade brought out some of the world’s most famous and greatest artists ever known to history. A prime example is Bob Dylan. Before Dylan made his appearance in the music scene, people hardly wrote protest songs or wrote songs the way that he did. His creative process included using the political turmoil and current events around him to express his love or hatred towards these events, in a poetic manner.
When all the men started humming together, I was actually amazed. I didn’t think that those people would be able to snap out of war mode and actually be able to bond together like that. I think that experience, (even though this movie is fictional) would have helped the men at war. I feel like it would make them look out for one another instead of “every man for himself.” That scene really tied them together as more than just soldiers, but brothers as well.
There is not one kind of music that I do not like. I love each and every one of the music generations out there. It may have taken me some time to get use to liking them but eventually I did and I wouldn’t change my love of music for anything. It honestly gets me through my rough days and helps me stay concentrated. My kids love music just as much as I do and they can sing just about any country song that comes on the radio.
I’d like to share with you an example of how someone in the past without a political leadership job led by example and thru folk music while serving some wants of the general public. Bob Dylan is still considered today to be the greatest influence on popular culture of all time. However, Bob Dylan was not born a star; his legacy was a good consequence of his living environments. During the course of Bob Dylan’s life, starting with his childhood, he has been somehow influenced by many historical events, such as the improvement of television and radio in society, Kennedy’s assassination, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the civil rights movement; it was these very changes in society that inclined Dylan to write music that would in turn arouse changes within that specific society. Robert Allen Zimmerman, who later became known as Bob Dylan, was born on May 24, 1941 to Abraham Zimmerman and Beatty Stone Zimmerman.
