As is the case for most viral phenomena, there are those who aren’t too keen on hip-hop Elvis’s lyrical prose. They fear that his overwhelming invectives can and will entreat harm upon his avid listeners. In spite of the schism between the lovers and the haters, Eminem has undoubtedly taken the music industry by storm; and in turn, our views and considerations. While the zealots of ‘Slim Shady’ defend his lyrics and context with phrases like ‘artistic expression’ and ‘free speech’, as made evident in Jackson Katz’s essay entitled Eminem’s Popularity Is a Major Setback for Girls and Women, Eminem’s cultural trailblazing comes with a less-than charismatic price: widespread acceptance of violence against anyone and everyone who falls within the crosshairs of his philosophy. People see this on a day-to-day basis, sometimes blatantly, other times situated behind the cleverly posed acceptances found in daily public life: Guy eyes a fetching girl and advances discretely.
The media influences the way I feel about music in a negative way. The media is always trying to look for the negative in a singer, a song, or a performance, just so that they can exploit people and make themselves look better. When the radio overplays a song, it annoys me because I do not get the same feeling I got when I had only listened to it a few times. Listening to a song over and over makes me tired of it quickly. Music greatly affects us as a society.
According to Castle, young people who listen to music on high-volumes would not have an immediate effect in their hearing, but will probably have a result of hearing lost later on in life. Loss of hearing in young people is mainly because they like to listen to music. But no matter what the purpose of them listening to music, it is most likely for the music
People resist change for several reasons. Some people resist change because of poor communication. The changes may not be communicated thoroughly or efficiently therefore leaving people confused and more inclined to resist; miscommunication can cause resistance. Fear of the unknown is also a reason to resist change. People may be scared to do something different because they don't know what the outcome will be; they are scared to take a chance or a risk.
So really, there is no way to recognize a good style from a bad style because it is all just opinion, but you can take notice to the fact that everyone acts, dresses, speaks and writes in their own way. I find it important for myself to consider my style choices because I feel that style shows the world who you are and what your character is. On that note, Nicki Minaj definitely shows her choice of style in a very popular music video called “Super Bass.” I myself find it very interesting that this music video has become so popular. I find the song itself to be repetitive and a little annoying, with more than half of the lyrics consisting of boom, badoom and yeah he got that super bass. Without even watching and just listening to the video one can get a sense of Nicki Minaj's speaking or rather, “singing”, style.
Cameron Williams 11 April 2011 4th Hour Ms. Mason Music Affect on Teens The negative effects that music can have on teens are that it encourages sexual activity, causes hearing loss, and encourages violence, but positive effect that music can have on teens is that it can help them concentrate, it can help them have a positive mind and can help them do better in school. During teenage years, teens use music as an escape to their problem. But music can affect teenager’s life in a negative way, like causing them to go to jail, or even death, or in positive ways like causing them to become good writers, or entertaining them. Teens listen to different songs with different messages, some good, and some bad. It depends how the teen react to the music.
“When we love a piece of music, it reminds us of other music we have heard, and it activates memory traces of emotional times in our lives. Your brain on music is all about, as Francis Crick said, connections.” What is music? Many of us have distinctive definitions of this complex term because it plays a unique role in each of our lives. Daniel J. Levitin, the author of This Is Your Brain on Music, looks at music from a neuropsychological perspective. How music affects us is connected through our brains neurochemistry, our mental associations with the music, our culture, and our spirit, which are all mentioned in this scientific journey.
Violence is a source of laughter in children's programs; films present it as staple fare; it is served as pseudo-information in sensation-hungry newspapers and on reality TV; and it is even glorified by some musicians in their lyrics and performances. In fact in the public domain, it is difficult to find material that is not linked to violence in some form. Those who are worried by this development also point out that the negative examples provided by the media are not balanced by a positive view. Criminals are often seen as daredevil and debonair or are presented so as to arouse sympathy. The so-called ‘heroes’ in TV series and films, be they Dirty Harry, the Power Rangers, Butch Cassidy or the Mighty Ducks, are frequently violent and
There were a few times when I actually had to choose a different day because I kind of subconsciously listened to music without even thinking about it. I love all different types of music; so I guess one could call me an eclectic. Although I love all different types of music my usual genres would be R&B and Pop. Music is like a gateway to escape from boredom's and/or daily stresses such as, arguments, overwhelming schoolwork, anger, and due-dates. That just goes to show that music is a huge part of me and a part of my life.
A score can really prohibit a relationship between the two. An audience doesn’t just attend a performance to hear music, they come to watch and absorb the performance as a whole. This is especially the case for singers. If a singer is blocked by a music stand or looking down at music, the meaning of the song just disappears and the passion from the singer is less visible. Equally instrumentalists are expected to play their music in a virtuosic manner, and lead the orchestra professionally, however with music in front of them, their professionalism decreases, as their concentration goes into the reading of the score.
