MUSIC HISTORY IN GIFS

 

Predstavljam vam Music History In GIFs, tumblr projekat Joshua Carrafa-e (gitariste Old Monk-a). Reč je o ličnoj retrospektivi najznačajnijih momenata u istoriji pop muzike, prenetoj sa jako mnogo ljubavi i humora. Priča kreće od
1964 i Beatlesa i pomera se godinu, po godinu. Ispod svakog (sjajnog) gifa stoji vam na raspolaganju i tekst (opet – sjajan). Uglavnom, volim, pratim i toplo preporučujem svima, bez obzira na muzički ukus.


2012. Psy releases his music video for Gangnam Style.  Never before has an artist so foreign been able to make such a huge impact with one crazy music video.  And this video is definitely crazy.  Also great.This is the Platonic Ideal of a viral sensation.

2003.  The White Stripes release their fourth album, Elephant.  The garage rock revival continues, and The White Stripes are the most commercially successful of the bunch.  They are punky and bluesy, raw and rocky, red and white, and so, so stylish.Also, they have amazing music videos.  Plus, Beck likes to show up in said videos.  So good.

1997.  Radiohead releases OK Computer, and it goes on to become one of the most critically acclaimed records of all time.  They released a couple of great videos, and a guy plays ping pong with an angel.  Also a guy cuts his own limbs off for some reason. 1996.  Beck releases his fifth album, Odelay.  It’s full of some goofy samples, wacky lyrics and a bunch of hit singles.  To celebrate, Beck walks around New York City carrying a boombox and talks about haircuts.Then he rocked us all to a place called Make Out City. 1995.  Tupac releases his most sensitive record, Me Against the World.  Subsequently he becomes the first artist to have a record reach number one on the charts while serving a prison sentence.  Also, he wrote a screenplay and got married while imprisoned.Also, remember when Chris Tucker was in his music video?

1990.  MC Hammer Scores a ridiculously popular hit, and popularizes some crazy pants at the same time.This made him a lot of money.  Then he hilariously spent it all.

1984.  Talking Heads release the concert movie Stop Making Sense.  David Byrne wears a hilariously oversized suit and does some of the raddest dance moves ever invented.Byrne’s stage presence is among the top in music history.

1983.  Michael Jackson debuts the moonwalk on Mo Town 25 during Billie Jean.  He’s pretty dang good at it.The ladies are all “aaaaaah”.  MJ is all “whatev”.

1968.  Johnny Cash says hello to a bunch of inmates at Folsom State Prison in Folsom, California.  Also he plays songs for them and they get excited and yell. For some reason, not many other people made live prison albums.

1964.  the beatles play the ed sullivan show.  everyone is all “aaaaaah”. especially the ladies.
