The Art Movement is a radio show about art and culture format that I am developing at the moment. Is the full list of songs I played on the latest episode of the show, which you can listen to via the player below.
Kaleidoscópio, “Você Me Apareceu”
The Rolling Stones, “Living in a Ghost Town”
Dionne Warwick, “Loneliness Remembers What Happiness Forgets”
Kanye West, “Power”
Antonio Vivaldi, “Allegro Non Molto” from “The Four Seasons: Winter” (Performed by the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra under Martin Sieghart)
“Lady Jane” from Aftermath – my personal favorite album by The Rolling Stones – is a wonderful piece of baroque rock, a style that blends elements of rock music with classical music. Other examples of this genre from the time are the Left Banke’s “Walk Away Renee” and Procol Harum’s “A Whiter Shade of Pale.”
This song was written by Mick Jagger at the beginning of 1966 after he had read D.H. Lawrence’s classic novel Lady Chatterley’s Novel, in which the sex organs of the woman are christened Lady Jane. Most of the other names are placed in a nonsensical order and are part of a general wish of its songwriter to evoke the feelings of an England during Elizabethan times.
The sound of the song, which conveys the medieval charge of the lyrics, is the atmosphere created by the musical genius of Brian Jones and his subtle performance of the dulcimer – perhaps the best performance of this instrument in any rock song.
