In 1981, Andrew Lloyd Webber scored what turned out to be the biggest success of his career with Cats, a lightly plotted musical using contemporary pop/rock music that was dominated by its costumes, staging, and choreography, and appealed primarily to children. Teaming up again with director Trevor Nunn, Lloyd Webber also repeated many of the essential elements of Cats in his next musical, 1984's Starlight Express. Where Cats was about felines, Starlight Express was about trains, with the actors portraying engines and sidecars in elaborate costumes, recreating the effect of trains on tracks by riding around the theater on roller skates. The plot, such as it was, had to do with a race. But the score consisted largely of what in the theater are called "I am" songs, in which individual characters introduce themselves. Thus, like Cats, which took its lyrics from poems by T.S. Eliot, Starlight Express was as much a collection of individual songs as a theater score. Lloyd Webber stuck largely to current pop/rock styles circa 1984, and that meant lots of synthesizers and percussive dance tracks. He also found space, however, to include pastiches of blues, rap, country, and gospel music that were little more than lampoons and often revealed their composer's ignorance of the forms. For example, "The Rap" was more reminiscent of the rhythmic "Rock Island" opening of The Music Man, itself set on a train, than of the rap music of the 1980s. Richard Stilgoe's lyrics were simplistic and often a bit suggestive for a children's show. The ensemble cast was adequate, but overwhelmed by both the music and the staging. The show opened in London on March 27, 1984, and was an immediate hit. This original cast album was recorded live and in the studio the following month. It was released belatedly in the U.S. on May 9, 2000.

Die Talking Heads-Revolution

Noch vierzig Jahre später beweist „Remain in Light“ mit dem verrückten Funk der Band von David Byrnes seine ganze Kraft und Stärke. Der auf einen kosmopolitischen Dancefloor katapultierte, kopflastige Postpunk hat sogar abertausend Gruppen wie LCD Soundsystem, Vampire Weekend oder Arcade Fire nachhaltig beeinflusst. Mit diesem vierten Album, das Brian Eno produziert hatte, machten Talking Heads ihre eigene Revolution. Und auch die des Rock.

10 Songs mit Norah Jones

Auch wenn ihre Alben beim Label Blue Note erscheinen, war Norah Jones nie eine reine Jazzkünstlerin. Seit Anfang der 2000er Jahre hat die amerikanische Sängerin und Pianistin immer alles getan, um stilistische Grenzen zugunsten ihrer eigenen staatenlosen Musik zu verwischen oder gar zu beseitigen, die sie gerne mit anderen Musikern unterschiedlicher Herkunft teilt. Eine kurze Rundfahrt durch ihre Welt in 10 Songs.

Britpop in 10 Alben

“Wenn das Ziel des Punk war, die Hippies loszuwerden, dann ist unseres, dem Grunge ein Ende zu bereiten.” Als Damon Albarn mit diesem Satz 1993 ganz England einen kräftigen Schlag versetzt, nimmt es wieder seinen Platz auf dem musikalischen Spielfeld ein, das von Seattle mit dem Grunge und Nirvana besetzt war. Der britische Pop, der eng mit dem politischen Geschehen verbunden ist, entdeckt das Tageslicht genau zu der Zeit, als Tony Blair und seine New Labour Party die Bühne betreten. Die englische Romantik wird gegenüber der amerikanischen wieder attraktiv, da diese häufig als zu hohl bezeichnet wird. Bühne frei für “Cool Britannia”.
