Music Is History: Billie Holiday to Carly Rae Jepsen
Since it seems to be my day talking about music let me share with you this arguable yet interesting short produced by Trashlab about the the content of successful songs through decades of the music industry. It seems obvious to everyone that music , especally applied to larger numbers of people is mainly successful because it expresses a common interest concern or attraction. The world of 1936 was apparently more concern in fighting the social forms of racism etc…than today. But once the statement is made, to analyse the different possibilities is harder. Is the audience that lacks of interest for something meaningful or is the industry that has understood that the light the topic the more it would sell, know that they have today communication tools closer to dictature than anything else. Have a look.
