My reason to submit this site is that aside from the pleasure of listening to music that is custome made to one’s taste, it could also be useful in an educational setting, specifically when learning modern American history.Each period in modern American history is accompanied with songs; the lyrics echo the period and so is the music.For example, when learning about the suffering of African Americans before the Civil Right movements, the sounds of Negro spirituals, rural and urban blues, and work songs are essential in the recreation of the era.Or, nothing would describe the mood of the country during the great depression better than George Michael’s song:
Once I built a railroad, made it run Made it race against time Once I built a railroad, now it’s done Brother can you spare a dime?
You want to highlight the roaring 20’s? the 60’s? Vietnam War? The birth of the Rock n roll age?Each and every period has left its marks in music.
Following Google's $1.65 billion purchase of video start-up YouTube, there are more than 1000 start-ups companies referred to as the Web 2.0 companies or dotcoms 2.0 (Time Magazine, Oct. 23, 2006). Among them is Pandora.com http://www.pandora.com/ which takes songs you like and creates an instant radio station that suits your taste. I typed Ella Fitzgerald's name and it took me on a journey through the golden age of American popular music. I was treated with songs from the Great American Songbook period (1930 - 1950), and these Standards are performed by some of the most beloved singers and musicians of the period.
