Entertainment has long been a source of controversy in American life. On the one hand, American popular culture is enormously desired, captivating audiences around the world. On the other hand, more and more critics blame it for the breakdown of morals and even civilization itself. In this groundbreaking book, William Romanowski brings something desperately needed to the discussion: an informed, systematic and challenging Christian perspective. Comprehensive and historically revealing, Pop Culture Wars bids to accomplish nothing less than to reframe and render more constructive a crucial but angry cultural debate.

Risky Business - Rock in Film (Paperback): William D. Romanowski Risky Business - Rock in Film (Paperback)
William D. Romanowski
R1,526 Discovery Miles 15 260 Ships in 7 - 11 work days

The role of motion pictures in the popularity of rock music became increasingly significant in the latter twentieth century. Rock music and its interaction with film is the subject of this significant book that re-examines and extends Serge Denisoff's pioneering observations of this relationship. Prior to Saturday Night Fever rock music had a limited role in the motion picture business. That movie's success, and the success of its soundtrack, began to change the silver screen. In 1983, with Flashdance, the situation drastically evolved and by 1984, ten soundtracks, many in the pop/rock genre, were certified platinum. Choosing which rock scores to discuss in this book was a challenging task. The authors made selections from seminal films such as The Graduate, Easy Rider, American Graffiti, Saturday Night Fever, Help!, and Dirty Dancing. However, many productions of the period are significant not because of their success, but because of their box office and record store failures. Risky Business chronicles the interaction of two major mediums of mass culture in the latter twentieth century. This book is essential for those interested in communications, popular culture, and social change.

Exposure is the name of the game in the world of mass media today. Customers are more selective about what they purchase, in part because prices are higher, and in part because they have so many choices about how to spend leisure time. In the exposure of popular music, and in particular rock, the role of motion pictures has become increasingly significant. Rock music and film is the subject of this major new book reexamining and extending Denisoffs pioneering examinations of the record industry and how it interacts with other media.

Prior to "Saturday Night Fever, "rock music had a limited role in the motion picture business. That movie's success, and the success of its soundtrack, began to change things. But it was not until 1983, with "Flashdance, "that the situation drastically changed; in 1984, ten soundtracks were certified platinum, many in the pop/rock genre. Clearly the marriage of movies with rock had reached maturity.

Choosing which rock scores to discuss in this book became a challenging task. Selecting scores from "The Graduate, Easy Rider, American Grafitti, Saturday Night Fever, Help , "and "Dirty Dancing "was easy. But many productions are significant not because of success, but because of their boxoffice and record store failures, and these too are discussed. "Risky Business "chronicles an important development, the interaction of two major mediums of mass culture in the latter twentieth century. The book will be essential for those who have read and enjoyed ' Denisoffs other books, as well as those interested in communications, popular culture, and social change.
