With its various services, Google is amassing a vast amount of data right now. And sometimes, it puts this data to cool uses, like the newly launched Music Timeline, a project by Google Research. In their words, this is “a visualization to show which music has stood the test of time, and how genres and artists have risen and fallen in popularity.” Index to Rounds Notices, Navigation, and Links This site serves a dual purpose: to share fun stuff with others and to spread information that might be of interest to those making use of it.

Music Musicians Bands Players Instruments Clubs Disco memories from The People History Site Throughout the years, musical styles have reflected the society of the time and have evolved with changes in the world. Not only does music change with society but it changes with technological advances as well. As technology changes it can allow new styles to emerge and new ways for people to listen. From radio to television, and records to the internet, music and the way we consume it has dramatically changed in the past seventy years.

Try Crescendo (for Netscape) or Midigate. dj, music, genres, definitions, house, disco, rock, hip hop, techno, reggae, classical songs A music genre is a category (or genre) of pieces of music that share a certain style or "basic musical language" (van der Merwe 1989, p.3). Music can also be categorised by non-musical criteria such as geographical origin. Such categories are not strictly genre and a single geographical category will often include a number of different genre. Categorizing music, especially into finer genres or subgenres, can be difficult for newly emerging styles or for pieces of music that incorporate features of multiple genres. Attempts to pigeonhole particular musicians in a single genre are sometimes ill-founded as they may produce music in a variety of genres over time or even within a single piece. Some people feel that the categorization of music into genres is based more on commercial and marketing motives than musical criteria.

"Auld Lang Syne": what does it mean, why do we sing it on New Year's Eve, and what language is it? This New Year's Eve, it is almost inevitable that you will hear (and possibly try to sing) "Auld Lang Syne," a song whose melody is synonymous with the new year (and the theme of change more broadly) in the English-speaking world, despite nearly incomprehensible syntax and vocabulary. The problem is that the text on which the song is based isn't in English at all — it's 18th-century Scots, a similar but distinct language responsible for lyrics in the song such as "We twa hae run about the braes / and pou’d the gowans fine" that are utterly incomprehensible to Americans. But the story of how an 18th-century Scottish ballad became synonymous with the new year is tangled, involving both Calvinist theology's traditional aversion to Christmas and the uniquely central role that watching television plays in American New Year's celebrations. "Should old acquaintance be forgot?" is a rhetorical question

Using music in the classroom to improve students' language skills Using music in the classroom to improve students’ language skills can be a great tool to help teachers achieve their goals. One of the things I often hear from parents of the students that attend the Bilingual Program is that they express a lot of curiosity when listening to music on the radio while trying to recognize some words and reproducing them. That points out how much they are interested in the new language being learned. It is one of the biggest rewards to hear that your students are making an effort to learn more when they are outside the classroom. Students when taught in a fun and creative way, enjoy coming to school and take that learning experience to their own lives. Although music can be a motivating and engaging activity it is essential that teachers know how to use this tool properly in order to get the expected results.
