Moods of Music

Music is a lot like the theater. As with the theater there are heroes and villains. OK here’s a test. I’ll throw out the name of a musician and you shout back if they are a hero or a villain.

Woody Guthrie (hero)

John Lennon (hero)

Yoko Ono (villain) (If you think hero, That’s not what you said 20 years ago.)

Johnny Cash (hero)

Courtney Love (villain)( If you think hero remember she is the grunge version of Yoko Ono)

Paul Simon(villain) (if you say Hero, “Oh so it’s OK" to perform in South Africa during the Apartide eh?)

Jackson Brown (eh) who cares, they were only allegations, but lets call him a villain anyway.(He allegedly beat up Daryl Hannah)

OK, OK I’ll stop getting personal here. Let’s do this. What sort of theater or theatrical type do you associate with each type of music? See if you agree with me.

Italian Operas…Mob movies.

Depressing classical music…War movies.

Banjo music…getting sexually abused while on a canoeing trip.

Klezmer music…a Woody Allen film.

60’s and 70’s rock…Vietnam War movies.

80's and 90's music...any stupid film with Ben Stiller or Meg Ryan.
