No Thanks, I'll Take Real Music
... them sing about a controversial topic. If the bands did write
and sing music about these topics, they would expand their range of
listeners but they would also loose the nice clean cut image. I don't
think that any of these bands have to struggle because before you know it
these feel good-happy music groups are popping up everywhere.
What should they do? When most bands start playing they go through
many years of building a fan following. That's the problem with these
groups. Playing with instruments would help a lot! A solid bass line and
a little good guitar never hurt anybody. Don't get me wrong, I think
everyone should be able to choose there own music ...
How To Listen To Music, Not Just Hear It
... A good room to listen in, is a typical family room with sheet
rock walls and four ninety degree corners.
The second consideration is placement of speakers. The corners of a
room are the perfect spot for your speakers. You shouldn't position them flush
against the wall, but put the back of the speaker into the corner, so each side
of the speaker is against each wall. For this reason, the bass is extended
(louder), and the tweeters, mid-range, and woofers give you their undivided
Where to sit is simple, but it takes some easy calculations to find the
perfect spot. There is a common rule for a person to experience the full effect
of the music. ...
Tupac Shakur: Stealing From A Dead Star
... In 1996 Tupac was charged with more than $28,000 for the purchase of
a Chevrolet Suburban. It was first titled to Tupac, then transferred by
Knight to his brother-in-law Norris Anderson (Saltonstall). How many cars
can a guy own and get charged with repairs with out finding out.
To start of with some other bills that were found on his account in
1995 were rental fees for condos and homes. Charged with more than
$120,000 in rental cost for a Malibu home that was actually occupied by
Kenner. Complaints by Afeni, Tupacs mother, were that Kenner failed to
protect the interests of Tupac. Kenner collaborated with Suge Knight to
drain cash from Tupac’s royalty ...
Music And The Civil War
during which "the large audience in attendance were highly gratified with
the entertainment."1 The popularity of the events is further indicated
through the paper's assurances that the public "will be ever ready to favor
the performers with the presence when called upon."1
Other social events in Augusta County that were widely popular were
the "fine concerts by Turner's Silver Concert Band."2 The newspaper reports
that the popularity of "these concerts have always heretofore drawn crowded
houses.2" In the style of other articles, the paper comments that the
"merit of the music will ensure to the concert an abundant success"2

Influence Of Music: Emotions And Effects
... dress outraged and may wear nose rings. Students that listen to
country may dress with a cow boy hat. A person that listens to oldies may dress
with clothes from the past.
Music can also influence the way a person thinks about somthing. People that
listens to rap may think that drugs should be legal. A person that likes country
may think that raggedy cars should be used until it possibly can't run anymore.
A person that listens to oldies think that the fashion should be the way that it
was when it was the fiftys.
This concludes the essay for " music and how it influences." Music can influence
the way a person thinks about a subject, their emmotions, and what sho ...
Woodstock Music And Art Fair
... eight miles outside of Bethel, N.Y. ,
population 3,900. There was objections from this city as well, but a
permit had already been purchased to have a concert, so not much could be
done about it.
Although the conditions were terrible, (Lack of food, sparse
sanitation facilities, drugs and alcohol, mud, to name a few) there were no
violent acts at the festival.
Drugs were a problem at the festival, nearly ninety percent of the
people there were smoking marijuana. There were no violence problems
though. Approximately one hundred percent of the 33 people arrested were
charged with drug-related charges.
Food shortage was a problem ...
The Life Of Deadheads And Music Of The Grateful Dead
... Deadheads typify how mainstream American society
generates groups of people with divergent core ideals, ultimately making
room for them, the Deadhead phenomenon can be shown to illustrate
counterculture as well as subculture, and even a latter-day assimilation
into mainstream American society.
Deadheads form a group with an identifiable onset and about which
there is substantial literature. Also, A Deadhead, according to the
authors of Skeleton Key: A Dictionary for Deadheads, is “someone who loves
-- and draws meaning from -- the music of the Grateful Dead and the
experience of Dead shows, and builds community with others who feel the
same way” (Shenk 60).

women carry parasols. The men wear old fashioned suits. One of the
characters is a sailor and he wears a Victorian Naval uniform.
The sets are fairly elaborate. Sweeney's barber shop is above the
bakery. His barber chair flips back to send the dead bodies of his victims
downstairs so Mrs. Lovett can prepare them for the pies.
My favorite song is the title song, "The Demon Barber of Fleet
Street". It tells the story of Sweeney Todd.
Although what Sweeney Todd does is wrong, I did feel sorry for him.
He had lost his family and lost his mind also. Mrs. Lovett helped him for
two reasons. She needed the money and she fell in love with him.

The Consumer And The Gimmick
hit song. It's not all our fault. You have to put at least some blame on the
bands themselves. They feel that it is part of their job to indulge our wants.
We as lovers of what these songwriters do are appalled and disgusted by hearing
anything but the best from our favorite bands. Once we have what we want it's
not long before we want more. This is because we consume the musicians' talents
like a fast food happy meal. We open the box, take out the toy, throw away the
contents, and then bitch about being hungry. When we do this we always say,
"It's a cool song, but they are a one hit wonder." We the hungry consumer do
not give the bands a chance to sh ...
Music In Video Games
... the switch from the use of frequency modulation to digital
sampling, and the use of compact discs for playing music during a game. By
closely examining the contribution of the preceding technological advancements,
one can see that technology has indeed caused great improvements for music in
the video game industry.
The first technological enhancement which greatly enhanced the quality of
music in video games is the number of bits which a sound Central Processing Unit
(CPU) has. The sound CPU is a component in a video game system which controls
every single sound which a system produces. This, then, obviously includes
music. Specifically, the CPU cont ...
