Nick Cave

I need a snappier title for this series.

Week 2: Defining Critical Moments in Popular Music

These critical moments are from a personal perspective, you understand. The first song was played as intro music as students shuffled in.

Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds – Babe, I’m On Fire


The following were all used to illustrate certain key concepts (subculture, syncretism, sonic narrative, technology, authenticity).

Royal Headache – Girls


Bed Wettin’ Bad Boys – Devotion


Gurrumul Yunupingu – Wiyathul


Etta James – I’d Rather Go Blind


The Books – A Cold Freezin’ Night


The White Stripes – The Hardest Button To Button


This last one had an essay attached from the Wall Street Journal, Anatomy of a Tear-Jerker.

Adele – Someone Like You


Groove Hook + Sound

Once again, I completely ran out of time – instead opting for the crowd-pleasing ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ exercise, whereby the song is stopped every 30 seconds and students have to note what they’re listening to.

Queen – Bohemian Rhapsody


There seems to be clear parallels between ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ and The Shangri-Las.

The Shangri-Las – Leader of The Pack


Incidental music during this week’s (storming) Kelvin Grove tutorials.

The Muppets – Ode To Joy


Thanks to everyone whose words I quoted, in particular Steve Dillon
