One of the most prolific rock keyboardists, Keith Emerson, passed away last night at the age of 71.
Synonymous with the progressive rock movement, Emerson was one third of the supergroup Emerson, Lake & Palmer. He was widely considered one of the most technically proficient keyboard players in rock history.
He frequently inserted classical music idioms into his compositions and solos, and has contributed some of the keyboard’s most demanding music to the rock canon, such as Karn Evil 9.
A recent study posted on Pricenomics.com learned that song titles are getting MUCH shorter as time goes on, and the prevalence of one-word song titles is more rampant now than at any time in pop history.
A look at the recent top 100 gleans titles like “Hello”, “Sorry”, and “Work”, just to name a few.
The article posits a few conclusions from the research –
In a more competitive marketplace, a shorter title is likely to be more memorable
Branding has become such a critical part of the music marketplace, that shorter titles (and hooks) are necessary
With singles replacing albums as the prime sell-able commodity, every factor must be considered to increase the chances of a song’s success
So, basically, the days of the “Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town” are behind us. Now, she would just be “Elderly”.
