These are times that try men’s and women’s souls….and I wish they’d try someone else’s. However, things change, especially if people work together to bring it about.

So, thanks to jkkFL’s great suggestion, this week’s theme is about change and transformation. Whether it’s a change of heart or a change of the times, a transformation of one’s life or music, share the music that speaks to you about change.

Anything Goes – Cole Porter

The Times They Are a’ Changin’ – Bob Dylan

Changes – David Bowie

Brand New Day – Sting

Getting Better – The Beatles

98 years ago, this music was such a change that it caused riots in the streets of Paris.

Stravinsky’s music is famous for causing a riot at its premiere. It was a warm spring evening in Paris on May 29, 1913, and Hoffman says the well-heeled crowd at the Champs Élysées Theatre was not ready for jagged rhythms, crunching discord, and the strange jerking of the dancers on stage.

“The ballet was choreographed by the great Nijinsky,” Hoffman says, “and the noise, fighting, and shouting in the audience got so loud, he had to shout out the numbers to the dancers so that they knew what they were supposed to do.”

In Stravinsky’s autobiography, he admitted that Nijinsky was a brilliant dancer.. but a complete flake who had the IQ of a fencepost.

Hmmm, a one trick pony maybe.
That one talent of dance may have consumed all the rest.
