Burlesque - From The Music Hall To The Pop Charts

Famous quotes containing the words charts, pop, burlesque, music and/or hall:

    There’s one basic rule you should remember about development charts that will save you countless hours of worry.... The fact that a child passes through a particular developmental stage is always more important than the age of that child when he or she does it. In the long run, it really doesn’t matter whether you learn to walk at ten months or fifteen months—as long as you learn how to walk.
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)

    There is no comparing the brutality and cynicism of today’s pop culture with that of forty years ago: from High Noon to Robocop is a long descent.
    Charles Krauthammer (b. 1950)

    Not until the advent of Impressionism does the repudiation of principles set in which opened the way for the burlesque parade of the fashionable and publicity-crazed modernities of our century.
    Johan Huizinga (1872–1945)

    See where my Love sits in the beds of spices,
    Beset all round with camphor, myrrh, and roses,
    And interlaced with curious devices
    Which her apart from all the world incloses!
    There doth she tune her lute for her delight,
    And with sweet music makes the ground to move,
    Whilst I, poor I, do sit in heavy plight,
    Wailing alone my unrespected love;
    Bartholomew Griffin (d. 1602)

    Sweet death, small son, our instrument
    Of immortality,
    Your cries and hungers document
    Our bodily decay.
    —Donald Hall (b. 1928)
