Randy Newman's songwriting often walks a narrow line between intelligent satire and willful cruelty, and that line was never finer than on the album Good Old Boys. Newman had long displayed a fascination with the American South, and Good Old Boys was a song cycle where he gave free reign to his most imaginative (and venomous) thoughts on the subject. The album's scabrous opening cut, "Rednecks," is guaranteed to offend practically anyone with its tale of a slow-witted, willfully (and proudly) ignorant Southerner obsessed with "keeping the n-----s down." "A Wedding in Cherokee County" is more polite but hardly less mean-spirited, in which an impotent hick marries a circus freak; if the song's melody and arrangement weren't so skillful, it would be hard to imagine anyone bothering with this musical geek show. But elsewhere, Good Old Boys displays a very real compassion for the blighted history of the South, leavened with a knowing wit. "Birmingham" is a funny but humane tale of working-class Alabamians, "Louisiana 1927" and "Kingfish" are intelligent and powerfully evocative tales of the deep South in the depths of the Great Depression, and "Rollin'" is cheerful on the surface and troubling to anyone willing to look beneath it. Musically, Newman dives deep into his influences in Southern soul and also adds potent country accents (with the help of Al Perkins pedal-steel guitar) while dressing up his songs in typically expert string and horn arrangements. And Newman assumes each character, either brave or foolish, with the skill of a gifted actor, giving even his most loathsome characters enough depth that they're human beings, despite their flaws. Good Old Boys is one of Newman's finest albums; it's also one of his most provocative and infuriating, and that's probably just the way he wanted it.

Die Tropicalismo-Bewegung: Eine brasilianische Revolution

Gegen Ende der 60er Jahre lehnte sich eine Gruppe junger brasilianischer Künstler durch die Verschmelzung nationaler Volksmusik mit Rock und Avantgarde gegen die Militärregierung auf. Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, Os Mutantes und ihre Freunde erfanden den Tropicalismo, eines der originellsten musikalischen Abenteuer des 20. Jahrhunderts.

Joni Mitchells Blaue Periode

Meisterwerk der Folkmusik aus den 70er-Jahren: „Blue" feiert, frisch wie am ersten Tag, sein 50-jähriges Jubiläum. Warum fasziniert dieses vierte, von der Kanadierin als musikalisches Tagebuch konzipierte Album immer noch Songwriter auf der ganzen Welt?

Die Geschichte des Tango

Die Geschichte des Tango, der seine Wurzeln im Tanz hat und schließlich zu einer eigenen künstlerischen Bewegung wurde, ist episch, und seine Zukunft scheint grenzenlos. Als Musikgenre mit hybriden Ursprüngen bleibt er eine der unglaublichsten Schöpfungen, die aus dem Río de la Plata entstanden sind. Im Laufe der Jahrzehnte und seiner Veränderungen war er ständig in Bewegung und brachte bedeutende Künstler hervor, die rund um den Globus anerkannt wurden. Heute verbindet er jahrhundertealte Traditionen mit der Weltmusik in einer erstaunlichen Vielfarbigkeit: von Gardel bis Piazzolla und von Borges bis Benjamin Biolay.
