    Audiobook ð Good Booty PDF Ç good free, booty book, Good Booty PDF/EPUBFull disclosure I won a free copy of this book in a Goodreads giveaway As you’d guess from the cover this book is a look at sex in popular music both its depiction and its practice by the various artists and fans through the ages The book's purpose is not to titillate but to educate Even if you ignore the mentions of sex it's a fascinating look at the history of American popular music in general While I like to consider myself fairly knowledgeable about the history of rock and roll I learned all sorts of details about its roots that were new to me Honestly as I write this I’m still digesting it all The back cover calls the book “A profound exploration of how popular music became America’s primary erotic art form” and promises that it “ offers new insights into our national psyche and our soul” It definitely delivers on that promise Thi

    Audiobook ð Good Booty PDF Ç good free, booty book, Good Booty PDF/EPUBThis is another re read but a great and fun one because this was the first time I revisited it Using the frame of different eras in popular music journalist and critic Ann Powers paints a fantastic and arousing look at the ways in which music rebelled against what was not allowed in proper society by forcing us to contemplate how to get down while getting down From the carefully orchestrated dances performed under the eyes of slave masters by those enslaved peoples in New Orleans pushing back against the system that kept them in chains except when they took to the public dancing place to the transgressions of Mae West Beyonce Lady Gaga and Madonna against polite society not to mention L

    Audiobook ð Good Booty PDF Ç good free, booty book, Good Booty PDF/EPUBAlmost didn’t finish this one I appreciate the amount of research that went into this book but the prose itself was so dry that I found it difficult to read for than a few pages at a time Powers packs in so much information without giving much thought to what it means to her personally which I found to be extremely frustrating—I didn’t expect for this book to read like a Wikipedia page I wanted for Powers to explore of what music means to her and to society as it continues to evolve but unfortunately you

    Audiobook ð Good Booty PDF Ç good free, booty book, Good Booty PDF/EPUBThough she occasionally does not do the full research and lapses into mere rehash in patches I love Powers' ideas and the thrust so to speak behind the book I'd love to assign it to college freshmen

    Audiobook ð Good Booty PDF Ç good free, booty book, Good Booty PDF/EPUBIt started kinda slow but picked upI didn't appreciate the disconnected and sterile tone of the book I wanted the author's passion and opinion to seep throughover the sexism and racism of the past was quite downplayed and that of today was stated simply as fact descriptions of gangrape without condemnation Strange and unnervingIt was interesting to see the progression of dance and culture along with music
