YouTube links for KMB003 (Sex Drugs Rock N Roll) lecture, semester 1 2013, week 3
This week it was all about yr Beyonce and yr Nicki Minaj and yr Jimi Hendrix.
Week 3: The Groove, The Hook, The Sound
Finally! And I again ran out of time. This week I used several pieces of music students had posted up on Facebook as examples: it’s probably reasonably obvious which they were.
The first six songs were played before the lecture began.
Samuel L. Jackson – Stack-O-Lee
The Gossip – Standing In The Way Of Control
Morrissey – Everyday Is Like Sunday (live)
GOD – My Pal
Dinosaur Jr – Freak Scene
Young Marble Giants – Credit In The Straight World
The following were used to discuss The Groove The Hook The Sound
Title Fight – Head In The Ceiling Fan
(∆) – Breezeblocks
Capitão Fausto – Verdade
The National – Afraid Of Everyone (live on Letterman)
The Monkees – Daydream Believer
Fair-sized discussion over the following two videos. A couple of students said they found the language in the Azealia Banks song offensive.
Nicki Minaj – Beez In The Trap
Azealia Banks – 212 ft. Lazy Jay
Compare and contrast.
Jimi Hendrix – Star-Spangled Banner
Beyonce – Star-Spangled Banner
