"Split into four sections, the book reviews the soundtracks and summarises the films that spawned them. The first part covers the breadth of pop and rock musical feature films: from Rock Around the Clock through to The Pick of Destiny. Section two concentrates on documentary and performance films, from the classic summer of love sounds of Woodstock to the contemporary inter-band rivalry of Dig!" "The third part explores the soundtracks of the great cult films of recent memory, where pop culture and pulp fiction meet, such as Trainspotting, Easy Rider and Reservoir Dogs. The final section will look at rock star scores, the rock and pop film scores and the pop luminaries behind them, such as Peter Gabriel, Nick Cave and Ry Cooder."--BOOK JACKET.

This inside look at the production of 20th century television commercials begins with a review of advertising’s beginnings going through the 1960s and early 1970s. The author, a career “Mad man,” recounts lightheartedly his experiences on commercial productions—both live and film—in theaters and studios in New York City, at LBJ’s ranch, on the White House lawn, along Rome’s Appian Way, in Lady Astor’s dining room and on the Tryall Golf Course in Jamaica, among other places. The technical (and people) challenges involved in producing high-end commercials for major corporations are given in often funny detail.

Lights! Camera! Action and the brain: The Use of Film in Education is about an innovative pedagogy whereby performing arts and digital production play a key role in teaching and learning. The book combines theory and practice; as such, it lays solid neurological foundations for film and media literacy, and provides several relevant practical applications from worldwide scholars. The book contains thirteen chapters three of which address a number of theoretical issues related to the camera and the brain while the remaining ten are practical illustrations of the extent to which film and video are used as pedagogical tools. In the book preface, Nikos Theodosakis, author of ‘The Director in the Classroom’, writes that the book contributors ‘have built a wonderful bridge for us to travel over’. In fact, the book chapters transcend age restrictions to include diverse age groups, children and young adults. The topics range from learning language and philosophy to learning about one’s self, one’s environment, and one’s cultural identity. Much more importantly, the book addresses the needs of regular and special needs learners. Arts in general, and films in particular, are shown to display salient and dynamic roles in appealing to a wide variety of regular and special needs learners. In short, the book is highly beneficial to educators and to education managers; it ‘will have the power to change teaching and the way the curriculum is perceived’ for several generations to come.

"In a study that is both scholarly and highly entertaining, Matthew Brown explores pop culture's appropriations of Debussy's music in everything from '30s swing tunes, '40s movie scores, '50s lounge/exotica, '70s rock and animation, '80s action films, and Muzak. The book, however, is far more than a compendium of fascinating borrowings. The author uses these musical transfers to tackle some of the most fundamental aesthetic issues relevant to the music of all composers, not just Debussy." David Grayson -- Book jacket.

Who runs the world? The Beyhive knows. From the Destiny's Child 2001 hit single "Survivor" to her 2019 jam "7/11," Beyoncé Knowles-Carter has confronted dominant issues around the world.

Contributors look at Beyoncé's entire body of work to examine her status as a canonical figure in modern music and do not shy away from questioning scandals or weighing her social contributions against the evolution of feminism, critical race theory, authenticity, and more. Full of examples from throughout Beyoncé's career, this volume presents listening as a political undertaking that generates meaning and creates community. Beyoncé: At Work, On Screen, and Online contends that because of her willingness to address societal issues within her career, Beyoncé has become an important touchstone for an entire generation—all in a day's work for Queen Bey.
