Learning Goal: I’m working on a music discussion question and need support to help me learn.In Chapter 1 when explaining the music and identity theme, Starr and Waterman mention that “popular music in America has from the very beginning been closely tied up with stereotypes, convenient ways of organizing people into categories.” With this in mind, consider the following songs and video:
“Gangsta’s Paradise” by Coolio https://youtu.be/cpGbzYlnz7c
“Mama’s Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys” originally recorded by Ed Bruce and famously covered by Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings https://youtu.be/ZaWCepCWDyY
“Bad” complete music video by Michael Jackson (directed by Martin Scorsese) (note: this version includes an extended section shot in black and white before the song begins)
How does this material both use stereotypes and respond/react to stereotyping? Consider the lyrics and visual presentation carefully.
Return to the board and read over the posts of your fellow classmates. Choose at least one classmates and create a post responding to his/her initial post on the Discussion Board. Your DQ replies do not need to be as long as your initial posts. In most cases, about 5 sentences will do.
