Default Can music change the world?

Can you think of a time when music changed the world? The Sixties are often touted as such an occasion, but a lot of that music was inspired by those events rather than the cause of them. Can anyone think of a piece or even a genre of music that caused a measurable change?

Hmmm, that's a very interesting question, I'll have to think about that for a while.

IMO, you are right about the "protest" songs of the late 60's and early 70's.

I believe music is powerful in both healing and harming. I'm not sure about a genre of music being able to change the world. Certainly, that was impossible before the 19th century simply due to the inabilityto share a specific music with other cultures. But very thoughtful topic!

Of course I should clarify that I meant “other than ‘A Country Boy Can Survive’”.

I don't think it can change the world. I think it can change individual outlooks on the world, and cause people to react. Of course I'm a cynical one now, so my views are jaded.

I agree completely with what you pointed out as music changing the individual outlooks on the world. I am driven by personal expression and music is one of the ways I do so.

It already has. I'm a product of it. Much of the 60's and 70's rock was influenced by Aleister Crowley a Satanist.




This is the Beatles throwing up the 666 hand sign




Jimmy Page from Led Zeppelin bought His old house.

lol!

How - aside from Jimmy Page buying his house and some of his manuscripts in his younger days - has Aleister Crowley been an influence on 60s and 70's music?

And intimating the Beatles were Satanists is ludicrous.

Definitely.


This is the back of one of the Doors albums. Jim Morrison is leaning on a statue of Crowley.








Ozzy Osbourne had a song called - Mr. Crowley

Cheachea, why the obsession with Aleister Crowley? He has followed us from the "Free Mason" thread into the music thread.
