Music Through the Years
By Ruth C
When we look at music from different genres and then look at the year it was produced, we notice very significant stylistic changes from older to newer music. As music changed, so did the behavior of people. In many situations, people have used music as a tactic of protest or as a way to get others to listen to what they have to say.
Music is one of the biggest cultural influences. It unites all different people of all different cultures. Since it has been a form of entertainment for millions of years, it has advanced and become something that is almost a necessity. And especially for those whose careers are surrounding the music industry, it truly is a necessity. If one day, music and sound in general were to completely die on everybody, it would change everything, from marketing to therapies. Almost everything deals with music and people are dependent on music to set a mood. In funerals, in war, in celebration, and in merchandising, music is a way to express sadness, celebration, radicalism, or even a way to make big companies big prophets.
It is truly hard to imagine life without music, for it has always existed and is always changing. Most everybody feels the need to have it and they do have it. They fulfill themselves with it constantly, often using it for inspiration.
