DUE 9/16 BY 10:00 AM–Make sure you email me the link to your blog, just in case I miss yours in my Blogroll
For your next blog post, I want you to compare/contrast one of the songs/videos I showed in class for the Early Music section with a song that you like from the modern era. (All of the songs I showed in class are listed on the D2L Course News page). Discuss, in approximately 350-400 words, how the earlier song influenced the modern song you’ve chosen, and how that influence manifests itself. Detail how the style of music has changed, and speculate on why the style of music has evolved over the years. I recommend posting links or embedding audio/video of the song you’ve chosen so that your readers can have a frame of reference. NOTE: You should not pick any of the artists that I’ve shown in class for your modern music selection (No Rolling Stones, Beatles, David Bowie, etc.)
In addition, for full credit, you should follow at least three other student blogs. (If you’ve forgotten how to do this, come see me during my office hours or send me an email). I will check the blogroll on your homepage to make sure you’ve followed some of your fellow students. If you have already followed some of your fellow students, this requirement has been met.
