The British Invasion?

The British Invasion? Topic: In my opinion art is essay
July 16, 2019 / By Evelyne
Question: I have to write a brief thesis statement about how I feel about the British invasion and how it impacted America. I just want to make sure I have this right.. A thesis is only one sentence and it is supposed to state your opinion, right? does this sound well written, and if not, can you help me correct it? "The British Invasion that occurred in the 1960's impacted American culture for years to come and still effects our lives today in areas such as music, art, fashion, and much more." (should I end the sentence after "...our lives today" ?)

Yes, typically a thesis is one sentence, and it explains the point and the structure of the essay. I would word your thesis like this The 1960s British Invasion has influenced American culture in music, art, and fashion for the last five decades. This thesis will come at the end of an introductory paragraph that is full of interesting descriptions of the Beatles, the Stones, Mod Fashion, Twiggy, etc. The body paragraphs will show how (one topic for each paragraph if you're writing a five-paragraph essay) American music, art, and fashion were influenced and are still being influenced by the British. Then you will have a conclusion highlighting what you have said throughout your paper. Sounds like an interesting topic.

1. How did you feel about the Beatles when they first emerged on the American music scene? Did you watch them on the Ed Sullivan show? What did you feel about girls shrieking hysterically? 2. What other singers and groups did you listen to during that period? 3. Some musicologists have identified four strands of music as prominent during the period of the Beatles emergence: folk/political protest songs, in which the musicians performed songs professing some sort of protest message; black singing groups featuring a lead and multiple backing singers, choreography, and closely coordinated costumes, with instrumentalists who were not part of the band (Four Tops, Commodores, The Temptations; the Shirells, the Chiffons, the Ronettes, the Rondelles); and rock-and-roll groups consisting generally of guitarists, keyboarders, and drummers supporting a single lead singer. Do you recall any groups or individuals that fell into theses categories. 4. There were various changes in fashion during this period. Which ones did you participate in? 5. Can you describe your reaction to or participation in either the Civil Rights movement or the anti-war movement? 6. When did you graduate from high school? When did you start college? (If there was any more than a single summer between the two, what did you do during that period?) 7. Describe your immediate reaction to the assassination of President John Kennedy? 8. What rock concerts or rock festivals did you attend? 9. Can you give me an off-the-top of your head list of favorite songs for this period?

we would nevertheless have some kind of rock, and that i doubt that it may nevertheless be chum Holly, and Jerry Lee Lewis, besides the undeniable fact that it truthfully does not be what that's right now. various contemporary American bands cite British invasion bands (The Kinks, The Who, The Rolling Stones, & of direction the Beatles) as considerable effect. i think of that with out the british invasion music could be heavily stymied. BQ: enable me think of, Bob Dylan, The Velvet Underground, The Who, Ray Charles, &The Beatles. So astounding purely 2, yet while you obtain to the precise ten there could be so lots extra, I assure you extra British bands could be there.

The Beatles almost immediately experienced huge success on the British charts—their second single, "Please Please Me," peaked at #2 late in 1962—and became superstars on this side of the Atlantic by early 1964, as "Beatlemania" swept the nation. Over the course of the 1960s, The Beatles would release dozens of top hits and bestselling albums, their musical style evolving from classic rhythm and blues to experimental psychedelic rock.

Adriannah Originally Answered: 60's Dance Party Vol. 3~ Woodstock 1969 vs. The British Invasion which one had the larger impact in rock?
Hello there, That is a quite difficult question, in part because they are so different and in part because they are so related. The British invasion ran for several years. Pretty much started with the Beatles three appearances on Ed Sullivan. They were followed with one band after another being introduced in the US over the next several years. Bands like the Who were part of the British invasion. Jimi Hendrix was at the time was thought to be part of the British invasion. Sure Hendrix was a back up blues guitarist for quite some time. But he had his break through in Britain with the Jimi Hendrix Experience. We did not realize at first he was from the northwest. By contrast, Woodstock was a single event. The festival for 3 days of peace and love. Hard to compare a single event with a multi-year event. Also, there were bands who performed at Woodstock who were part of the British invasion. Case in point, the Who. This overlap makes it hard to distinguish between the two. In addition to the actual overlap, there is some other connections. The idea of the outdoor rock festival did not begin with Woodstock. Two years earlier, there was the Monterrey Pop Festival. That really laid the ground work for Woodstock. Even many of the performers at Monterrey played at Woodstock. Just to cloud the distinction even more, two of the board of organizers for Monterrey were George Harrison and Paul McCartney. Even though the Beatles, as a band, could not get clearance to play at Monterrey, two of the band's members were very active in organizing the festival. So, if you speak of Woodstock as an major outdoor rock festival, then you are talking about a concept that was partially forged by two of the people who started the British invasion. Woodstock was probably the greatest single event in rock history. But it did not really become anywhere near as big an impact until the movie about it came out later. Most of my friends never heard about it until the movie. I had became a Hendrix fan sometime in 1966 (yes, I am that old). I actually talked about going to Woodstock with my (then) girlfriend. I missed Monterrey and I would like to go Woodstock because many of the same people were going to play there. I got talked out of going because of the distance. We hit some other festivals not so far away. (That proved to be a bad decision. Goose Lake was not nearly as good even if Life Magazine did a photo spread about it). So, I knew about Woodstock and maybe 4 or 5 other people on the college campus where I attended knew about it before hand. Then in 1970, my little sister and all the hippie want-a-bes told me about the great guitarist they discovered and how I should find out about him. Yep, Jimi Hendrix. Yes, they also discovered the Fish, only because of the fish cheer in the movie. None of them knew I had Jimi Hendrix's and Country Joe's records for a couple of years already. Point is, the festival was not know at the time. The movie make it known. Contrast that with the Beatles on Ed Sullivan. Everyone heard about that and if they missed the first show, they caught the second or third one. So, at the time they each happened. the British invasion had a much bigger immediate impact. Even the anticipation was more wide spread for the British invasion. Everyone knew the Beatles were going to be on TV. Very few knew Woodstock was going to happen. The outdoor rock festival concept (which really started with Monterrey) continued. Throughout the 70s there are so many of them. I lost track of the ones I went to, not to mention all those I did not even know about. The mega-concert concept really made it next big leap when George Harrison organized the Concert for Bangladesh. That was the first major charitable rock event. That concert was an outgrowth of Woodstock. (In turn was an outgrowth of Monterrey) And, that concert was organized by George Harrison (one of the organizers of Monterrey). That concept has continued well past the 70s. Therefore, the concept has been very significant. Another aspect of the analysis, is that Woodstock really presented nothing new to US music audience. I had listened to the Who, Country Joe, Canned Heat, Big Brother and the Holding Company, Jimi Hendrix Experience, Richie Havens and others for a few years before Woodstock. In contrast, the British invasion brought a whole new sound to the US. The British invasion sound so quite different than the Beach Boys, Jan and Dean, Duane Eddy and the rest we were listening to at the time. The British invasion really introduced a new era in rock music to the US. Well, I rambled on pretty good there. Don't know if I actually answered your question. Don't know if there is an actual answer to the question. Guess, I just gave you the thoughts of a long time rocker. Later,
