As I read through your blog entries, I chose to write a comment on your blog about Marvin Gaye- What’s Going On. I really enjoyed reading the blog admission. It was very informative, well though out, and well written. As I read it, I knew that you did your research on the artist life and this particular song. I would have to say that your statement about “listeners being uplifted to the point of feeling joyous after hearing his music,” was right on point. Also, when listening to Gaye’s melodies, I think you can agree with me when I say that you can feel his passion for his music through his creative works. The way you delivered this entry was great, and it kept me reading until the end of the blog. I look forward to reading more of your blogs in the future, and I wish you the best of luck.

Your post this week was very interested and very well put together. Every question that was given to us to be answered in this week’s blog was thoroughly explained well. When I read this article on Kraftwerk, I could automatically notice the research that was put into this informative article. You also gave some great additional information on the development of Kraftwerk. I must say that I do agree with you on your statement about Kraftwerk being “highly entertaining.” Kraftwerk really did create a sound beyond all other sound with utilizing drum machines and synthesizes. Their level of creativity is amazing, and has indeed influenced many artists even in today’s musical world.
I really gained a lot of information from reading your independent research blog post. It was very informative, and I can easily tell that you did your research precisely. I was also amazed that they reproduced songs from some of the great legendary artists such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and The Beach Boys. They definitely had a great impact on the blues music genre of today’s musical generation. I also agree with you that the success story of these brothers that were immigrants were very inspirational, and do encourage future producers, such as myself, that they can accomplish their musical goals.
