A music genre is a conventional category that identifies some pieces of music as belonging to a shared tradition or set of conventions. It is to be distinguished from musical form and musical style, although in practice these terms are sometimes used interchangeably. Academics have argued that categorizing music by genre is inaccurate and outdated. Music can be divided into different genres in many different ways; the artistic nature of music means that these classifications are subjective and controversial, some genres may overlap. There are varying academic definitions of the term genre itself. In his book Form in Tonal Music, Douglass M. Green distinguishes between form, he lists madrigal, canzona and dance as examples of genres from the Renaissance period. To further clarify the meaning of genre, Green writes, "Beethoven's Op. 61 and Mendelssohn's Op. 64 are identical in genre – both are violin concertos – but different in form. However, Mozart's Rondo for Piano, K. 511, the Agnus Dei from his Mass, K. 317 are quite different in genre but happen to be similar in form."
Some, like Peter van der Merwe, treat the terms genre and style as the same, saying that genre should be defined as pieces of music that share a certain style or "basic musical language." Others, such as Allan F. Moore, state that genre and style are two separate terms, that secondary characteristics such as subject matter can differentiate between genres. A music genre or subgenre may be defined by the musical techniques, the style, the cultural context, the content and spirit of the themes. Geographical origin is sometimes used to identify a music genre, though a single geographical category will include a wide variety of subgenres. Timothy Laurie argues that since the early 1980s, "genre has graduated from being a subset of popular music studies to being an ubiquitous framework for constituting and evaluating musical research objects". Among the criteria used to classify musical genres are the trichotomy of art and traditional musics. Alternatively, music can be divided on three variables: arousal and depth.
Arousal reflects the energy level of the music. These three variables help explain why many people like similar songs from different traditionally segregated genres. Musicologists have sometimes classified music according to a trichotomic distinction such as Philip Tagg's "axiomatic triangle consisting of'folk','art' and'popular' musics", he explains that each of these three is distinguishable from the others according to certain criteria. The term art music refers to classical traditions, including both contemporary and historical classical music forms. Art music exists in many parts of the world, it emphasizes formal styles that invite technical and detailed deconstruction and criticism, demand focused attention from the listener. In Western practice, art music is considered a written musical tradition, preserved in some form of music notation rather than being transmitted orally, by rote, or in recordings, as popular and traditional music are. Most western art music has been written down using the standard forms of music notation that evolved in Europe, beginning well before the Renaissance and reaching its maturity in the Romantic period.
The identity of a "work" or "piece" of art music is defined by the notated version rather than by a particular performance, is associated with the composer rather than the performer. This is so in the case of western classical music. Art music may include certain forms of jazz, though some feel that jazz is a form of popular music. Sacred Christian music forms an important part of the classical music tradition and repertoire, but can be considered to have an identity of its own; the term popular music refers to any musical style accessible to the general public and disseminated by the mass media. Musicologist and popular music specialist Philip Tagg defined the notion in the light of sociocultural and economical aspects: Popular music, unlike art music, is conceived for mass distribution to large and socioculturally heterogeneous groups of listeners and distributed in non-written form, only possible in an industrial monetary economy where it becomes a commodity and in capitalist societies, subject to the laws of'free' enterprise... it should ideally sell as much as possible.
Popular music is found on most commercial and public service radio stations, in most commercial music retailers and department stores, in movie and television soundtracks. It is noted on the Billboard charts and, in addition to singer-songwriters and composers, it involves music producers more than other genres do; the distinction between classical and popular music has sometimes been blurred in marginal areas such as minimalist music and light classics. Background music for films/movies draws on both traditions. In this respect, music is like fiction, which draws a distinction between literary fiction and popular fiction, not always precise. Country music known as country and western, hillbilly music, is a genre of popular music that originated in the southern United States in the early 1920s; the polka is a Czech dance and genre of dance music familiar throughout Europe and the Americas. Rock music is a broad genre of popular music that originated as "rock and roll" in the United States in the early 1950s, developed into a range of different styles in the 1960s and particular
Under the Bridge
"Under the Bridge" is a song by American rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers. It is the eleventh track on the group's fifth studio album, Blood Sugar Sex Magik, was released as its second single on March 10, 1992. Vocalist Anthony Kiedis wrote the lyrics to express feelings of loneliness and despondency, to reflect on narcotics and their impact on his life. Kiedis was driving home from rehearsals when "Blood Sugar Sex Magik" was in pre-production and said he sang the lyrics to himself. Kiedis did not feel that "Under the Bridge" would fit into the Chili Peppers' repertoire, was reluctant to show it to his bandmates until producer Rick Rubin implored him to do so; the rest of the band wrote the music. The song became a critical and commercial success, peaking at number two on the Billboard Hot 100, behind "Jump" by Kris Kross and receiving a platinum certification by the Recording Industry Association of America; the single's success was widened with the release of its accompanying video, played on music television channels.
It won the "Viewer's Choice Award" and "Breakthrough Video" at the 1992 MTV Video Music Awards. "Under the Bridge" helped the Red Hot Chili Peppers enter the mainstream. David Fricke of Rolling Stone said that the song "unexpectedly drop-kicked the band into the Top 10", while Philip Booth of The Tampa Tribune commented that it was a "pretty, undulating, by-now omnipresent single." Its success led in part to the departure of guitarist John Frusciante, who preferred the band to remain underground. The song has become an inspiration to other artists, remains a seminal component of the alternative rock movement of the early and mid-1990s. During the production of the Red Hot Chili Peppers' 1991 album Blood Sugar Sex Magik, producer Rick Rubin visited singer Anthony Kiedis to review Kiedis' new material, he found a poem titled "Under the Bridge" while flipping through Kiedis' notebook and took an interest in the poignant lyrics. Rubin suggested that Kiedis show it to the rest of the band: "I thought it was beautiful.
I said'We've got to do this.'" Kiedis was reluctant, as he felt the poem was too emotional and did not fit the Chili Peppers' style. After singing the poem to guitarist John Frusciante and drummer Chad Smith, Kiedis recalls that they "got up and walked over to their instruments and started finding the beat and guitar chords to match it". Frusciante chose the chords he played in the introduction to balance out the depressing nature of the lyrics, saying "my brain interpreted it as being a sad song so I thought if the lyrics are sad like that I should write some chords that are happier". For several days Frusciante and Kiedis worked on the song, it became one of the few tracks written and completed prior to the band moving into The Mansion where they recorded the album. After the song was recorded, Rubin felt the grand and epic outro would benefit from a large group of singers. Frusciante invited his mother and her friends, all of whom sang in a choir, to perform. Kiedis wrote much of the song's lyrics during a period when he felt distraught and drained.
He had maintained sobriety for three years and felt that this had distanced him from his bandmates. While the group worked on Blood Sugar Sex Magik and Flea smoked marijuana together, ignoring Kiedis, who felt that Frusciante was "no longer in world." Driving home after rehearsal in April 1991, Kiedis thought of his heroin and cocaine addiction during his relationship with former girlfriend Ione Skye: "the loneliness that I was feeling triggered memories of my time with Ione and how I'd had this beautiful angel of a girl, willing to give me all of her love, instead of embracing that, I was downtown with fucking gangsters shooting speedballs under a bridge."Kiedis' feelings of alienation from his bandmates led him to feel that the city of Los Angeles was his only companion: "I felt an unspoken bond between me and my city. I'd spent so much time wandering through the streets of L. A. and hiking through the Hollywood Hills that I sensed there was a nonhuman entity, maybe the spirit of the hills and the city, who had me in her sights and was looking after me."
The lines "Sometimes I feel like / My only friend / Is the city I live in / The City of Angels / Lonely as I am / Together we cry" show a direct link to Kiedis' isolation and sense of susceptibility. Despite these emotions, Kiedis believed that his life was better without drugs, telling Rolling Stone that "no matter how sad or lonely I got, things were a million percent better than they were two years earlier when I was using drugs all the time. There was no comparison." The optimistic ideology gave birth to the chorus of the song: "I don't want to feel / Like I did that day / Take me to the place I love", "the place" meaning his bandmates and family. One of the most notable verses in the song discusses the harsh effects of drugs, their role in destroying many of Kiedis' relationships, their impact on his happiness. Based on one of Kiedis' experiences, the verse of "Under the Bridge" illustrates his efforts to enter gang territory under a bridge to purchase drugs. Kiedis pretended. Although he acquired the drugs, Kiedis considers this moment to be one of the worst of his life as it demonstrated the level to which he was willing to sink in order to feed his addiction.
For over 20 years, Kiedis refused to acknowledge the location of the bridge, though he noted that it is in downtown Los Angeles. Using clues provided by Kiedis in his autobiography Scar Tissue, writer Mark Haskell Smith concluded that the bridge that inspired the song was located in the city's MacArthur P
Radio broadcasting is transmission by radio waves intended to reach a wide audience. Stations can be linked in radio networks to broadcast a common radio format, either in broadcast syndication or simulcast or both; the signal types can be digital audio. The earliest radio stations did not carry audio. For audio broadcasts to be possible, electronic detection and amplification devices had to be incorporated; the thermionic valve was invented in 1904 by the English physicist John Ambrose Fleming. He developed a device he called an "oscillation valve"; the heated filament, or cathode, was capable of thermionic emission of electrons that would flow to the plate when it was at a higher voltage. Electrons, could not pass in the reverse direction because the plate was not heated and thus not capable of thermionic emission of electrons. Known as the Fleming valve, it could be used as a rectifier of alternating current and as a radio wave detector; this improved the crystal set which rectified the radio signal using an early solid-state diode based on a crystal and a so-called cat's whisker.
However, what was still required was an amplifier. The triode was patented on March 4, 1906, by the Austrian Robert von Lieben independent from that, on October 25, 1906, Lee De Forest patented his three-element Audion, it wasn't put to practical use until 1912 when its amplifying ability became recognized by researchers. By about 1920, valve technology had matured to the point where radio broadcasting was becoming viable. However, an early audio transmission that could be termed a broadcast may have occurred on Christmas Eve in 1906 by Reginald Fessenden, although this is disputed. While many early experimenters attempted to create systems similar to radiotelephone devices by which only two parties were meant to communicate, there were others who intended to transmit to larger audiences. Charles Herrold started broadcasting in California in 1909 and was carrying audio by the next year.. In The Hague, the Netherlands, PCGG started broadcasting on November 6, 1919, making it, arguably the first commercial broadcasting station.
In 1916, Frank Conrad, an electrical engineer employed at the Westinghouse Electric Corporation, began broadcasting from his Wilkinsburg, Pennsylvania garage with the call letters 8XK. The station was moved to the top of the Westinghouse factory building in East Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Westinghouse relaunched the station as KDKA on November 2, 1920, as the first commercially licensed radio station in America; the commercial broadcasting designation came from the type of broadcast license. The first licensed broadcast in the United States came from KDKA itself: the results of the Harding/Cox Presidential Election; the Montreal station that became CFCF began broadcast programming on May 20, 1920, the Detroit station that became WWJ began program broadcasts beginning on August 20, 1920, although neither held a license at the time. In 1920, wireless broadcasts for entertainment began in the UK from the Marconi Research Centre 2MT at Writtle near Chelmsford, England. A famous broadcast from Marconi's New Street Works factory in Chelmsford was made by the famous soprano Dame Nellie Melba on 15 June 1920, where she sang two arias and her famous trill.
She was the first artist of international renown to participate in direct radio broadcasts. The 2MT station began to broadcast regular entertainment in 1922; the BBC was amalgamated in 1922 and received a Royal Charter in 1926, making it the first national broadcaster in the world, followed by Czech Radio and other European broadcasters in 1923. Radio Argentina began scheduled transmissions from the Teatro Coliseo in Buenos Aires on August 27, 1920, making its own priority claim; the station got its license on November 19, 1923. The delay was due to the lack of official Argentine licensing procedures before that date; this station continued regular broadcasting of entertainment and cultural fare for several decades. Radio in education soon followed and colleges across the U. S. began adding radio broadcasting courses to their curricula. Curry College in Milton, Massachusetts introduced one of the first broadcasting majors in 1932 when the college teamed up with WLOE in Boston to have students broadcast programs.
Broadcasting service is – according to Article 1.38 of the International Telecommunication Union´s Radio Regulations – defined as «A radiocommunication service in which the transmission are intended for direct reception by the general public. This service may include sound transmissions, television transmissions or other types of transmission.» Definitions identical to those contained in the Annexes to the Constitution and Convention of the International Telecommunication Union are marked "" or "" respectively. A radio broadcasting station is associated with wireless transmission, though in practice broadcasting transmission take place using both wires and radio waves; the point of this is that anyone with the appropriate receiving technology can receive the broadcast. In line to ITU Radio Regulations each broadcasting station shall be classified by the service in which it operates permanently or temporarily. Broadcasting by radio takes several forms; these include FM stations. There are several subtypes, namely commercial broadcasting, non-commercial educational public broadcasting and non-profit varieties as well as community radio, student-run campus radio stations, and
All Saints (All Saints album)

Upon its release, the album received mixed reviews from music critics, many critics praised the choice of singles and the group's musical direction; the album spawned three number-one singles in the United Kingdom: "Never Ever", the double A-side "Under the Bridge" and "Lady Marmalade", "Bootie Call", as well as "I Know Where It's At" and "War of Nerves". All Saints received mixed reviews from music critics. Many critics praised the choice of singles and the group's musical direction, while some did not enjoy the music direction and felt they lacked personality. Nick Butler from Sputnikmusic gave it a mixed review, he felt that the musical direction and sound "hasn't aged well" but praised the group's creativity, where the group were more pleasurable than their all girl group rivals Spice Girls, as he stated they were "considered the credible alternative to the Spice Girls."
But due to comparisons with the Spice Girls, he stated "I still enjoy the singles a lot when I hear them, but if there was a war between the two groups, All Saints lost it."Stephen Thomas Erlewine from AllMusic did not rate the album, but gave it a mixed review as well. Through the rival with the Spice Girls, he felt All Saints lacked "personality", but praised their music direction by saying "All four members have better voices than the Spices, they all have a hand in writing at least one of the songs on their eponymous debut More they and their producers have a better sense of contemporary dance trends – there are real hip-hop and club rhythms throughout the record " He highlighted "Never Ever", "I Know Where It's At" and "Lady Marmalade" as the album's best tracks. In the United Kingdom the album debuted at number twelve for the week beginning 6 December 1997, before progressing to a peak of number two on 17 January 1998 where it remained for three consecutive weeks, it spent a total of 66 weeks on the chart.
As of April 2016, the album has sold 1,469,771 copies in the United Kingdom. It peaked within the top forty in numerous countries and reached the top ten in Switzerland, New Zealand and Canada; the album was certified Platinum in the United States for shipments of over 1 million units. The group first released the single "I Know Where It's At"; the song was written by member Shaznay Lewis, with usual writing partner Karl Gordon and contained a sample of Steely Dan's "The Fez". It was released on 18 August 1997 as the first single from the group, while a re-release was on 13 January 1998. Commercially, the song proved to be a success worldwide, peaking in the top twenty in countries including Canada, United Kingdom, New Zealand, Australia and France. A music video was shot for the single, where it featured the group in an urban setting; the group's second single was "Never Ever", written by Lewis and the song's producer, Sean Mather. It was released on 19 November 1997 worldwide, while it was released on 7 July 1998 in North America.
The song remains the group's most successful and memorable hit, where the song peaked at number one in Australia, New Zealand and United Kingdom, while it peaked in the top ten in countries including Ireland, Canada, The Netherlands, Switzerland and Austria. The song peaked at number four on the US Billboard Hot 100, becoming the group's highest peaking single in that country; the group released a double A-Side single with "Under the Bridge" and "Lady Marmalade". Both versions were released on the studio album. Both of the singles were cover versions, however they remain unique because both cover songs are lyrically altered from the original; the songs were released on 27 April 1998 worldwide, including North America on that date. Though it was released as a double A-Side single, "Under the Bridge" had charted from the single, where it managed to chart in the top twenty in countries including United Kingdom, Canada, New Zealand and Sweden. However, "Lady Marmalade" charted as a solo single as well, but did not perform as well as the conjoined single, where it charted in Switzerland and France.
The group's fourth single was "Bootie Call". The song was released on 31 August 1998 in European countries only, it was the group's third consecutive number one in the United Kingdom charting in Belgium, The Netherlands, Sweden. A music video was shot for the single; the group's fifth and final single was "War of Nerves". The song was to be only released in the United Kingdom on 23 November 1998, but was released in New Zealand; the song didn't have as much success but charted in New Zealand and the United Kingdom. A music video was shot; the song "Let's Get Started" was released in 1995 with only members Melanie Blatt and Shaznay Lewis under the name All Saints 22.214.171.124. However, when the group formed with sisters Nicole Appleton and Natalie Appleton, they renamed the group All Saints and the title of the song was altered to "If You Wanna Party" and featured on the album. However, both "Let's Get Started" and "If You Wanna Party" are the same song, but with different titles; the song was re-recorded with the Appleton sisters and was re-released in Japan only in 1997.
