American Authors - Best Day Of My Life

Indie music is one of my favorite genres of music! Indie music has such a large variety of genres from indie pop to indie rock to indie folk there are many kinds to choose from! Indie music uses every instrument under the sun. Indie music was created by the artist the way they wanted, nothing was off that table. Indie is a shortened version of Independent, it was created in the 1950 – 60’s but did not become popular till the 80’s. Indie band’s/ Artists broke the bounders that all other artists and recording company’s were afraid to break. This lead to them not being picked up by most recording company’s and not making much money. Indie music has however started to catch on in the past few years but still does not have that large of a following compared to pop or rock. Some of the most know Indie bands today are American Authors, The 1975, F.U.N, and Bastille.Link to American Authors music video.

Opera music has been around longer then you! Well at least I hope! Opera music was created/ started at the end of the 16th century. The term “ Opera “ comes from the Latin word “opus” or “work”. The famous saying “It ain’t over till the fat lady sings” is from Wagner’s Ring Cycle Operas. Opera is almost always backed up by a full orchestra, if not it is instrumental. Some of the most popular operas to this day are Carmen, La Bohé, ll Baebiere di Siviglia, and Don Giovanni. Even though all of these operas were created way before the year 2000 these are still the most popular operas in the year 2014.

Broadway show tunes are the baseline for a Broadway musical.
