15 Most Popular First Dance Wedding Songs - Summer 2016 When it comes to planning their big day, millennial couples are straying from tradition and making their own rules. New wedding trends like honeymoon funds and mismatched bridesmaids dresses are all the rage, but there's one one wedding tradition that will never go out of style: the first dance. And even though there's a seemingly endless amount of love songs to choose from, there are certain tunes that perennially capture the hearts of couples across the country. Music-streaming service Spotify recently released its list of Top 50 First Dance Songs and, not surprisingly, tracks from Ed Sheeran, Lonestar, and Elvis Presley ranked high. The list is full of wildly romantic songs, both old and new.

Philly company digitizes 25,000 old records and they're free to download Twenty-five thousand songs recorded onto 78RPM discs in the early 20th century have been released online, for free. They are the first batch of an estimated 400,000-piece virtual record collection to be made available by the Internet Archive, from gospel by the Tuskegee Institute Sings, to opera recorded in Italy, to novelty tunes by Spike Jones, to hot — though obscure — jazz. The task of digitizing all of those old records is happening in Chestnut Hill. In a little storefront building on Germantown Avenue in Philadelphia's Chestnut Hill neighborhood, George Blood Audio LP, an audio preservation company, has been quietly preserving America's musical heritage, one 78 at a time.

Drama CD. This 800-year-old Icelandic hymn sung in a train station is utterly haunting 18 October 2016, 16:40 This devotional hymn was originally written in 1208, but its mesmerising beauty is completely timeless – as this spontaneous performance in a station in Germany proves. Sometimes the most profound moments of music are the simplest. An Icelandic indie-folk group walked into a resonant space in a train station in the German city of Wuppertal – and then this happened: The group is Árstíðir, and the music is the 13th-century Icelandic hymn "Heyr himna smiður", and adapted by Þorkell Sigurbjörnsson, one of Iceland's most important 20th-century composers.

New Web Project Immortalizes the Overlooked Women Who Helped Create Rock and Roll in the 1950s “For sixty years, conventional wisdom has told us that women generally did not perform rock and roll during the 1950s,” writes Leah Branstetter, Ph.D. candidate in musicology at Case Western Reserve University. Like so many cultural forms into which we are initiated, through education, personal interest, and general osmosis, this popular form of Western music—now a genre with seventy years under its belt—has functioned as an almost ideal example of the great man theory of history. It can seem like settled fact that Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, Buddy Holly, and their celebrated male contemporaries invented the music; and that women played passive roles as fans, studio audience members, groupies, personifications of cars and guitars.... The recognition of rare exceptions, like Sister Rosetta Tharpe, does not challenge the rule. But Branstetter’s Women in Rock and Roll’s First Wave project almost single-handedly does. Meet The Chantels.

The Internet Archive Is Digitizing & Preserving Over 100,000 Vinyl Records: Hear 750 Full Albums Now There seems to be widespread agreement—something special was lost in the rushed-to-market move from physical media to digital streaming. We have come to admit that some older musical technologies cannot be improved upon. Musicians, producers, engineers spend thousands to replicate the sound of older analog recording technology, with all its quirky, inconsistent operation. And fans buy record players and vinyl records in surprisingly increasing numbers to hear the warm and fuzzy character of their sound. Neil Young, who has relentlessly criticized every aspect of digital recording, has dismissed the resurgence of the LP as a “fashion statement” given that most new albums released on vinyl are digital masters.

Listen to the oldest song in the world written 3,400 years ago In what is thought to be the oldest song ever created, a ‘sheet’ of music was discovered in the ancient Syrian city of Ugarit and referenced back to around 3400 years ago. Professor Anne Draffkorn Kilmer, who works as the curator at the Lowie Museum of Anthropology at Berkeley, spent fifteen years deciphering the clay tablets which were uncovered and excavated in Syria by French archaeologists in the early 1950s. The tablets, it has been confirmed, formed “a complete cult hymn and is the oldest preserved song with notation in the world.” Kilmer, who is also the professor of Assyriology at the University of California, worked alongside her colleagues Richard L.
