Music is a living art. As with other humanities, music changes based on the culture, trends, and the artists who create it. As such, music has evolved over time. The following videos have a sampling of that evolution. Your task is to pick one song from the videos and evaluate it. To earn full credit in your forum you should:
- Identify the decade of the video that the song appears.
- State the song title and the artist.
- Determine the genre of the song. Is it rock and roll, rap, country, etc? What aspects of the song helped you identify its genre?
- Using two musical terms from this chapter, discuss the song. You can consider: Beat, tempo, melody, harmony, texture, and dynamics.
- Then, evaluate the song. What’s good about it? Why did you choose it?
