The sounds of music

            Music  is something which allows a person to relax, to save  inner  balance and  to  calm down.

            There  are  a  lot  of  music  genres: rock, pop, jazz, blues, rap  and  so  on.  

            The hypothesis:

Modern music and songs in English are more popular than songs in other languages.

            The problem:

Music and songs in English are very popular all over the world.

            The Main part:

As we know English is the most common used and popular language in the world.
So,  let`s take as an example the Spanish song  "Despacito".
It was a very popular summer hit. And Justin Biber translated the composition in English.
So, guess what happed?
At present all radios  include a track "Despacito" in its English version.

     

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   

   Also  I can tell you about Eurovision. All the participants usually sing songs in English.

Eurovision is the longest-running annual international TV song competition.
   The worst place among Russian performers was taken by Philip Kirkorov in 1995. Phil took the 17th place for the song, which was performed in Russian. Then, after him his ex-wife Alla Pugacheva took part in Eurovision in 1997 with a Russian song again, which had got only the 15th place.

Let us see how the Eurovision  rules have been changing since this music competition had appeared.
"Language

Every successful hit  must have vocal; purely instrumental music has never been allowed in Eurovision. "In the past, competitors had been required to sing in one of their own national languages, but this rule has been changed several times over the years.

 

       From 1956 until 1965, there was no rule restricting the languages in which the songs could be sung.   In 1966 a rule was imposed stating that the songs must be performed in one of the official languages of the country participating, after Sweden was the first country to not sing in their own language, with opera singer Ingvar Wixell performing Sweden's 1965 entry in English. The Swedish-language version of the song was originally selected at Melodifestivalen 1965, but it was later translated into English for the Eurovision contest.
The language restriction continued until 1973, when performers were again allowed to sing in any language they wished. Several winners in the mid-1970s took advantage of this: performers from non-English-speaking countries sang in English, including ABBA in 1974.


    In 1977, the EBU decided to revert to the national language restriction. However, special dispensation was given to Germany and Belgium as their national selections had already taken place before the decision was made; both countries' entries that year were in English.
In 1999 the rule was changed again to allow the choice of language once more, which resulted in 12 out of 23 countries, including United Kingdom, singing in English that year. Belgium entered the 2003 contest with "Sanomi", a song sung in a constructed language, finishing in second place. In 2006 the Dutch entry, "Amambanda", was sung partly in English and partly in an artificial language.

        In 2008 the Belgian entry, "O Julissi", was sung in an artificial language.
 In 2011 the Norwegian entry, "Haba Haba", which was sung in English and Swahili, was the first song to be sung in an African language, apart from Arabic. In 2016 all but three out of 36 semi-finalists had songs in English, with only two (Bosnia and Herzegovina and Macedonia) performing songs in their native languages, as Austria sent a song in French. In the final, all but three out of 26 contestants had songs in English.

For one more example, I can tell you a story about Moldavian singer Dan Balan (he was born on 6th of February in 1979 in Kishinev).

He is a singer who was popular only in Moldova and Russia, until he began to write songs in English.  Today he lives in  New York, the USA, and he became very popular all over the world.

Let`s look what wikipedia.com tells us about Dan Balan.

Dan Balan is a Moldovian musician, singer, songwriter and record producer. He is the first and only Moldovian musician to be nominated for a Grammy as co-writer of Rihanna and T.I.'s "Live Your Life". He is the founder of European band O-Zone, and wrote and produced their international hit single "Dragostea Din Tei", which topped the charts in over 30 countries and sold over 12 million copies worldwide.

Career

1995–1998: Beginnings and "Inferialis"
After Balan formed the band "Inferialis", it held its first concert in 1995 in a concert hall in one of Kishinev 's factories. His entire family was present at the concert, and his parents having been impressed by the performance bought him an expensive synthesizer. He spent the next two years performing with the band, taking several small gigs, and then decided to move to commercial-sounding music. In an interview, he explained that he had never considered himself a heavy metal musician and instead identified as a producer with an interest in working with varying musical styles. He started experimenting and exploring a new, commercial pop sound, and recorded and released his first solo song, "De la Mine", in 1998.

1998–2005: Breakthrough and O-Zone

In 1998, Balan formed O-Zone, a new musical project, with Petru Jelihovschi, former vocalist in Inferialis. The duo released their first album entitled Dar unde esti? later that year and it became a commercial hit with seven of the album's ten songs reaching number one on the charts of the main radio stations in Moldova. At the same time, he became a producer of a new children's TV show called Tanti Ludmila Show, which was hosted by his mother. When the show needed a title song, the singer offered up a track he'd written when he was younger. performer of European hit-singles "Chica Bomb", "Justify Sex" and "Freedom".

 

As we  can  see, songs in English are more popular, for example we can take an  indi-rock band "Imagine Dragons".

This indi-rock band is loved by many people. Band was created in 2008 in Las Vegas.
Step by step Imagine Dragons band became popular among other countries.

Let`s look through what wikipedia.com tells us about Imagine Dragons. This is a short variant and the most important information about them from my point of view.

"Imagine Dragons is an American rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada, consisting of lead vocalist Dan Reynolds, lead guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist and keyboardist Ben McKee, and drummer Daniel Platzman.

Imagine Dragons has won two American Music Awards for Favorite Alternative Artist, a Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance, five Billboard Music Awards, and a World Music Award. In May 2014, the band was nominated for fourteen Billboard Music Awards, including Top Artist of the Year and a Milestone Award, which recognizes innovation and creativity of artists across different genres. Imagine Dragons have sold 9 million albums and 27 million singles worldwide.

The band released EPs titled Imagine Dragons and Hell and Silence  in 2010, both recorded at Battle Born Studios, in Las Vegas. They returned to the studio in 2011. The third EP, It's Time, was made before they signed a record deal.

They got their first big break when Train's frontman Pat Monahan fell sick just prior to the Bite of Las Vegas Festival 2009. Imagine Dragons were called to fill in and performed to a crowd of more than 26,000 people.[20] Local accolades including "Best CD of 2011" (Vegas SEVEN), "Best Local Indie Band 2010" (Las Vegas Weekly),  "Las Vegas' Newest Must See Live Act" (Las Vegas CityLife), Vegas Music Summit Headliner 2010, and more sent the band on a positive trajectory. In November 2011 they signed with Interscope Records and began working with English Grammy winning producer Alex da Kid. Eventually the Tolmans would leave the group and Daniel Platzman would be recruited in August 2011 by invitation from Ben McKee, prior to the signing of band's label deal in November 2011, alongside keyboardist Theresa Flaminio.

Musical style and influences

The band embarked on the Night Visions Tour in 2013.

"On Top of the World"

"On Top of the World" is a sharp contrast to the darker, thematic songs on Night Visions.

Imagine Dragons' musical style has mainly been described as alternative rock, indie rock, pop rock, indie pop, electronic rock, synth-pop, electropop, and pop. The band's sound has also been described as arena rock. Their music also has some influences of folk, R&B, hip hop and EDM.

 

Dan Reynolds cites Arcade Fire, Nirvana, Muse, The Beatles, Paul Simon, Coldplay, Harry Nilsson, and U2 as some of his and the band's artistic influences. In terms of success, Reynolds credits bands like Foster the People and Mumford & Sons for bringing alternative pop music to a new level of commercial success in recent years.
