The Music Scene.

          It was the 1920s in New Orleans, and sad beautiful music filled the streets and cafes. The singers were black, and most of them were poor. They sang about their lives, their loves, and the tough world they lived in. Their music - jazz, ragtime and blues (" I've got the blues" means "I'm unhappy") - soon travelled to Europe and all over the world.
          It was the 1950s in Memphis, Tennessee, and Elvis Presley was the king of rock'n'roll. The new sounds travelled to Britain as well. Teenagers disagreed with their parents, wore their tight blue jeans and danced to their rock'n'roll records. The days of pop stars and the huge pop concerts were here. The fans rushed to hear their favourite music, screamed, fainted, and came back for more. Pop music was now the world of young people everywhere, moving fast, always changing.
          It was the 1960s in Liverpool, England, and four young men were making a new sound. They called themselves the Beatles, and their music quickly traveled to America and all over the world. For the first time, British music was very important abroad.
          It was 1969 in Woodstock, near New York. A great pop festival attracted nearly half a million young music fans. Most of them were hippies, who shocked the world with their beards, long hair, old jeans, and their calls for Peace and Love. Rock music was loud and fast, but there was a gentler sound too. The great folk singers, like Joan Baez and Bob Dylan, touched millions of people with their protest songs. They sang about the war in Vietnam and about violence in the world.
          It was 1970s. Elvis was dead. The Beatles were no longer together. The gentle mood of the '60s was gone, and in Britain punk music was in fashion. The punks wore green and pink hair, leather clothes and tried to shock people with their manning
          And a new star was rising. An older American tradition, country and western music, was becoming internationally known.
          In 1980s, British pop music still has a worldwide audience. Groups from Britain like the Rolling Stones, the Who, the Clash, the Police, and ex - Beatle Paul McCartney with his new group Wings, are the most popular singers in the USA today.
          Fashions in pop music come and go - but the singers and the fans will always be here.
