    (CU News) - Almost a year before his death at the age of 70, Johnny Cash would gain a younger generation of fans by covering a Nine Inch Nails song from 1994 entitled “Hurt”. The question of how did he end up covering that specific song is bound to be asked? It seemed like a strange choice at the time while also being very appropriate given his stage life. The original version of “Hurt” is a much different take on the song. However, Cash’s version applies an entirely unique translation based simply on who is singing the lyrics. The original...

    In the autumn of 1926 a boarding school in Piedmont run by Salesian Fathers discovered in their archives a large amount of old volumes which the administrators... The matter was turned over to Dr. Alberto Gentili, professor of music history at Turin University. He asked for a list and suggested that the material be sent to Turin so that he could inspect it carefully. The Salesians obliged and several crates arrived. Dr. Gentili immediately went to work examining the contents. On opening the first crate he found before him volume upon volume of Vivaldi autographs... Proceeding with the utmost secrecy,...

    Harpist Is Accompanied By Adorable Woodland Creature In A Dreamy Scene Straight Out Of A Disney Movie BY MATTHEW RUSSELL “My harp session turned into a Disney movie,” writes Redditor u/Noomie90. The musician was preparing for practice when a white-tailed deer approached slowly from behind. With a smile and a song, she continued to play along. The harpist performed “The Sounds of Silence” with a uniquely designed “portable” model. The deer appears in the background of the meadow. “TIL harps can have slings so you can harp anywhere,” commented Redditor u/nerdwaffles. “It’s actually an altered guitar strap!” replied the musician....

    One professional rocker has been continuing his social media crusade against Black Lives Matter and, despite his bandmates’ more liberal leanings, has refused to back off of his support for law enforcement. Metal and hard rock music outlet Loudwire reported on “System of a Down” drummer John Dolmayan’s brave pro-police support. The musician posted a photo of an NYPD uniform patch to his Instagram account on July 24 and captioned the social media post with pro-”Blue Lives” sentiment. He wrote, “Very proud to have received this gift and will always support the men and women who put their lives on...

    Pope emeritus Benedict XVI has praised the “glorious music” of Johann Sebastian Bach in a message to a festival in Germany. In a statement released July 27 by the organizers of the 2021 Bach Festival in Leipzig, Benedict XVI noted that the festival would include a cycle called “Bach’s Messiah,” chronicling the life of Jesus through the composer’s music. “The particularity of this festival is that it has merged the works of Bach relating to the life and work of Jesus Christ of Nazareth into a whole, thus giving us a kind of ‘Messiah’ by Bach,” he wrote. The Bach...

    Pop quiz: What's the most important thing about opera singer Luciano Pavarotti? (A) He used his vocal gifts to bring joy to millions; or (B) He was white, and not black or Latino. If you're a normal person, you'd choose option A. But if you're the New York Times chief classical music critic, Tony Tommasini (or some other equally lousy person), you choose B. Tommasini last week published what might be the single worst arts piece ever published by the formerly revered, now auto-cannibalizing Gray Lady. And since I have no word limit on this column, I might as well...

    David Byrne overwhelms the image of Talking Heads. With his herky-jerky mannerisms, loopy persona and arch lyrics – not to mention his command of the songwriting credits through much of their catalogue – he eclipsed the efforts of every other member of the band. Yet according to a new memoir by Talking Heads’ co-founder and drummer, Chris Frantz, titled Remain in Love, Byrne’s dominant image wasn’t merely a by-product of a legitimately outsized talent, but a clear power grab, driven by ego, greed and a skewed mindset. “It’s like he can’t help himself,” Frantz said in a phone interview. “His...

    The Undefeated ^ | 2020 | Jesse Washington
    “God is love,” the Bible says. Black American music began with this love. We asked Him, in our African call-and-response tradition, for strength and freedom. These “Negro spirituals” begat the blues, which begat jazz, rock ’n’ roll, R&B, and rap. Today, much of the love expressed in classic songs seems as anachronistic as cassette tapes. The Hot 100 pop charts still have plenty of songs by black artists about sex, which has always been an essential thread in the emotional tapestry of music. But compared with past decades, when popular black artists consistently gave voice to humanity’s most powerful emotion,...
