This week we watched the history of rock-n-roll and we saw how the music have changed over the last decades. During this period, there were a lot of musicians which attracted a lot of people by their different and new style of music. Some of the most popular and successful musicans included Elvis, the Beatles, Rolling Stone, Bob Dylan and many others, have drawn peoply by their different styles of music. Elvis and the Beatles attracted the crowd by their new and upbeat music and Bob Dylan drew the audience with his lyrics. With these people's efforts and determination, the music industry increased their stength and its popularity. Also, I think, music business grew so fast because every artists respected and influenced each other which made lots of musicians to come up with new ideas and styles of music.
Sex symbol was also the other thing that made music popular, but some adults were offended by this. However, the younger generations, the girls, were attracted to it. When the Beatles arrived to America, all the eyes were on them. The Beatles got so popular that there were 73 millions Americans watching them on "The Ed Sullivan Show". Even though watching them on TV was a thrill for them, their main goal was to go and actually see the Beatles play at a concert. Some of the girls were so obsessed that they "exchaned Beatle magazines or cards, and gathered to speculate obsessively on the details and nuances of Beatle Life."
Even though there were some problems (ex. the Beatles saying that "They were better than Jesus") within the music industry, all the artists who lived between 1950s and 1970s, have made the artists today to come up with new ideas and styles of music to maintain its popuality.
