TTC England, the 1960s, and the Triumph of the Beatles [TUTORiAL]

TTC England, the 1960s, and the Triumph of the Beatles [TUTORiAL]

P2P | 2020年10月31日| 4.27 GB

1960年代是转变文化规范,挑战性公约,政治动荡和社会叛乱的十年。也是十年来,我们带了一支乐队和一支音乐,这将永远改变英格兰和整个世界。

自从甲壳虫乐队在整个宇宙中崭露头角以来,已经有60多年的历史了,直到现在,我们仍然知道这些词的迷人,悲哀,喧闹,振奋,实验和超越的声音:“嘿,裘德”,“她爱你”,“昨天”,“我想握住你的手”,“永远的草莓田”。

的确,甲壳虫乐队以其丰富多样的音乐而吸引着各个年龄段的听众。但是,英格兰北部一个衰落的老港口的四个年轻人是如何进行如此史诗般的音乐和文化革命的呢?为什么甲壳虫乐队的故事只能发生在如此充实的十年里?关于这个从未有过的英国乐队还有什么要说的?

诸如此类的问题在于英格兰,1960年代和甲壳虫乐队的胜利的跳动。在印第安纳州立大学最畅销的传记作家迈克尔·谢尔顿教授的带领下,这12场引人入胜的讲座重新审视了流行乐队如何成为反对现状的最引人注目的声音之一。Shelden教授的课程比任何简单的音乐调查更深入地介绍了披头士乐队如何成为一种全球现象并激发如此强烈的奉献精神的文化背景,它有自己的名字:Beatlemania。利用事后洞察力,最近获得的奖学金以及对重要人物的采访,他重建了声乐和社会历史上一个令人难以置信的时期。

这些讲座当然可以增进您对甲壳虫乐队音乐的理解。但更重要的是,它们使Beatlemaniacs和新听众都有机会欣赏英格兰如何帮助创建了这个奇迹乐队,以及该乐队又如何影响了英格兰和世界其他地区。

音乐与文化历史的折衷融合

按时间顺序排列,谢尔登教授带领您度过音乐与文化史上一个变革性的十年。

这些讲座与甲壳虫乐队的早期事业一样重要,与他们的职业生涯最高点和最终的解散一样重要,这些讲座邀请您参加一场旋风冒险,揭示了一支与众不同的乐队的演变-从小学生到音乐家,再到流行现象,再到电影明星对艺术家的创作不可避免地要朝着不同的方向发展。

但这不只是关于甲壳虫乐队的系列讲座。这也是通向(通常不为人所知)文化事件的窗口,这些事件使甲壳虫乐队发动了对美国以及其后世界的重大入侵。

谢尔顿教授追溯了英国文化在战后美国立足的微妙方式,以及美国音乐界如何欢迎甲壳虫乐队(并最终使他们落伍)。他对流行文化的多变提出了明确的启示。冷战时期的音乐歌词政治;以及愤怒,创造力,爱和友谊的本质。

难忘歌曲背后的故事

甲壳虫乐队的音乐感受不可避免地受口味和体验差异的影响。一些歌迷更喜欢“艰苦的一天之夜”,而另一些歌迷更喜欢“白色专辑”。专辑和歌曲可以进行各种解释。Shelden教授的演讲为乐队的一些热门唱片提供了令人eye目的文化见解。

“救命!”:这首歌,是一个走得太远的年轻人的求救声音,应该很喜怒无常。然而,演唱这首歌是为了庆祝这位歌手的困境,而非歌颂。在汉堡的演出时间中,约翰·列侬(John Lennon)陶醉于危险和麻烦中,并把所有数字都当作是他的最后一个。它的核心是“帮助!” 是约翰在甲壳虫时代之后经常放任的原始how叫。
“回到苏联”:这首歌写于1960年代下半叶,当时具有极高的感染力,以至于普通听众很容易忽略模仿并仅听从苏联的字面庆祝。可以预见的是,美国的右翼评论家谴责这首歌是非美国人的,尤其是当它与约翰·列侬的《革命1》中的“白色专辑”中的另一首挑衅性歌曲搭配使用时。
“昨天”:保罗·麦卡特尼(Paul McCartney)花了大约三个小时来录制这首歌,完全用他自己的吉他,唯一的乐器来录制。他在“昨天”创作的作品是每位作曲家梦dream以求的独立经典。在有关保罗是甜美旋律的作曲家和约翰是坚硬摇滚的作曲家的论点中,柔和的声音将永远作为附件A。但是现实从未如此简单。
“你想知道一个秘密吗?”:约翰·布莱恩·爱泼斯坦经理布莱恩·爱泼斯坦(Brian Epstein)对同性恋的保密性使他着迷,约翰在“你想知道一个秘密吗”中写了一首a谐的歌。约翰没有亲自唱歌,而这在同性恋之恋仍然违法之时可能会导致布莱恩焦虑,约翰却把它交给了乔治,作为纯真的浪漫曲调来唱歌。直到多年以后约翰才揭露真相,才是最明智的人。
“就像其他许多很棒的课程一样,这是一次智力之旅,”谢尔顿教授说。“您可能会喜欢这些歌曲,但我希望您留下来的故事和想法,我希望这不仅会增强您对音乐的理解,而且会对英格兰如何帮助创造那个被称为甲壳虫的奇迹产生新的赞赏—以及它们又如何影响英格兰以及世界其他地区。”

正是这种文化历史,传记和音乐历史的折衷融合,使英格兰,1960年代和甲壳虫乐队的胜利成为了一个令人着迷的发现,一个流行乐队如何成为反对现状的最引人注目的声音之一。

The 1960s was a decade of shifting cultural norms, of challenged conventions, of political upheaval and social rebellion. It was also the decade that brought us a band—and music—that would change England and the world forever.

It has been more than 60 years since the Beatles first blazed across the universe, bringing with them a charming, mournful, raucous, uplifting, experimental, and transcendent sound in songs we still know the words to today: “Hey Jude,” “She Loves You,” “Yesterday,” “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” “Strawberry Fields Forever.”

It’s true that the Beatles fascinate listeners of all ages because of their great, and varied, music. But how did four young men from a faded old seaport in Northern England lead such an epic musical and cultural revolution? Why could the story of the Beatles only have happened in such a charged decade? What remains to be said about this British band that hasn’t been said before?

Questions like these lie at the beating heart of England, the 1960s, and the Triumph of the Beatles. Led by best-selling biographer, Professor Michael Shelden of Indiana State University, these 12 fascinating lectures offer a fresh look at how a pop band became one of the most compelling voices against the status quo. Taking you deeper than any simple music survey, Professor Shelden’s course zeroes in on the cultural backstory of how the Beatles emerged as a worldwide phenomenon and inspired a devotion so strong, it had its own name: Beatlemania. Using the advantages of hindsight, recent scholarship, and interviews with key figures, he reconstructs an incredible period in sonic and social history.

These lectures do, of course, enhance your understanding of the Beatles’ music. But more important, they allow Beatlemaniacs and new listeners alike the chance to appreciate how England helped create this miracle band, and how the band, in turn, influenced both England and so much of the rest of the world.

An Eclectic Blend of Musical and Cultural History

Working chronologically, Professor Shelden takes you through a transformative decade in the history of both music and culture.

Giving equal weight to the Beatles’ early years as they do to the apex of their career and eventual dissolution, these lectures invite you on a whirlwind adventure that reveals the evolution of a band like no other—from school kids to musicians to pop phenomenon to film stars to artists inevitably drawn in separate directions.

But this isn’t simply a lecture series on the Beatles. It’s also a window into—often unknown—cultural events that allowed the Beatles to stage their remarkable invasion of the United States and, after that, the rest of the world.

Professor Shelden traces the subtle ways British culture had established a foothold in postwar America, how the American music scene welcomed the Beatles (and eventually left them behind). He offers pointed revelations about the fickleness of popular culture; the Cold War politics of music lyrics; and the nature of rage, creativity, love, and friendship.

The Stories behind Unforgettable Songs

How you feel about the Beatles’ music is, inevitably, subject to differences in taste and experience. Some fans prefer A Hard Day’s Night while others are more in-tune with the “White Album.” Albums and songs are open to all kinds of interpretation. Professor Shelden’s lectures offer eye-opening cultural insights into some of the band’s greatest hits.

“Help!”: This song, a cry for help by a young man who has gone too far, ought to be moody. Yet the lyrics are sung as a celebration of the singer’s plight, not a dirge. Hours on stage in Hamburg had taught John Lennon to revel in danger and trouble, and belt out every number as if it were his last. At its heart, “Help!” is a primal howl of the kind John would often let loose in his post-Beatles period.
“Back in the USSR”: Written in the second half of the 1960s, this song was so infectious at the time that it was easy for the average listener to overlook the parody and hear only a literal celebration of the Soviet Union. Predictably, right-wing critics in America condemned the song as un-American, especially when paired with another provocative song on the “White Album,” John Lennon’s “Revolution 1.”
“Yesterday”: Paul McCartney spent about three hours recording this song, doing it entirely on his own with an acoustic guitar as his only instrument. What he created in “Yesterday” was the kind of stand-alone classic every songwriter dreams of doing. The soft sound would serve forever more as Exhibit A in the argument that Paul was the composer of sweet melodies and John the genuine man of hard rock. But the reality was never as simple as that.
“Do You Want to Know a Secret”: Intrigued by the secrecy of manager Brian Epstein’s homosexuality, John wrote a coy song about it in “Do You Want to Know a Secret.” Instead of singing it himself, which might have caused Brian anxiety at a time when homosexual love was still illegal, John gave it to George to sing as an innocent romantic tune. Nobody was the wiser until John revealed the truth many years later.
“Like many other Great Courses, this is an intellectual journey,” Professor Shelden says. “You may love the songs, but I want you to stay for the stories and ideas that, I hope, will not only enhance your understanding of the music, but also create a new appreciation for how England helped to create that miracle called the Beatles—and how they, in turn, influenced England and so much of the rest of the world.”

It’s this eclectic blend of cultural history, biography, and music history that makes England, the 1960s, and the Triumph of the Beatles such a fascinating look at how a pop band became one of the most compelling voices against the status quo.
