Online Music

Where can you find and download music for free?

Most music mp3 downloads are illegal because of the copyright on the music as well as the licensing. Most popular songs are not licensed to be freely distributed - without paying for it. This is piracy. There are several services which allow you to download single songs rather than full albums - one of which is iTunes, and will generally cost you around .99 per song.

There are some free services that allow you to stream music, such as Pandora, Spotify, and iTunes Radio. Also, some more reputable music stores such as Amazon and iTunes also run specials where some songs are free if you download them during a specified time.

There are some music files that are released for free downloading on the Internet. These are generally songs that are not popular or mainstream. Check with the licensing and copyrights of the song before downloading to be sure.

As a final note: Try looking on the artist's official website or their record label's official site for any sneak peeks or any free downloads for their music. If the song is not available there, most likely it is not free to download anywhere else.

Kanye West

Is Kanye West a musical genius?

The use of the word "genius" is often debated; some feel that the potency of the word's intended meaning has been diluted by over-usage. The history of Western music has included many talents who pushed the boundaries of what audiences thought possible at the time, such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig van Beethoven, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, John Cage, and many more. These artists might be considered geniuses today for their effect on music's direction as a whole, so to judge a current artist's level of "genius" might be difficult before their discography is complete and the total effect they have on artists to come can be fully appreciated.

In Kanye West's specific case, he's called himself "a God" (even releasing a song in reference to this claim), and has also self-identified as a genius on multiple occasions. His arrogant attitude has definitely led people to question him, but putting that aside, what has Kanye accomplished musically? The gold standard of awards in the music industry is the GRAMMYs, of which he's received the seventh-most in history. As of 2019, Kanye has won 21 GRAMMYs from 69 total nominations.

On a side note, this Community Manager definitely thinks Kanye has the gifts to be considered genius. His understanding of production and the ways that he's explored the possibilities within music production is truly new and innovative. I look forward to new releases of his always, because he continues to push his own boundaries and release music like I've never heard before.

What songs contain drums bass guitar and keyboard?

Basically any rock song out there. All-american rejects, the Fray, Green Day (sometimes), use those four instruments. A lot of songs from the 60's and 70's, definitely 80's include those instruments, but many bands in those time periods were not always consistent in their choice of instruments, especially after synthesizers became popular. Pretty much any rock song, and some hip-hop songs you would listen to use these instruments.

What does an upside down cross mean?

"Some hold it to be a sign used by devil worshippers."

Although some do, this is not the actual meaning of this cross. The cross is also regarded as the cross of st peter (who was crucified upside down). Although other people believe this to be a sign of someone who has lost faith.

There are many cases where people believe poltergeist activity actually causes this type of behaviour from normal crosses (turning them at night).

What are the effects of music on plants?

There are many different viewpoints on this. A selection of contributors' thoughts are included below.


Many scientific studies have been done regarding the effects of music on plants. The simple answer is that past studies have suggested hard rock or heavy metal music seems to have a detrimental effect on plant growth.

There is a well-known study from the early 1970s, conducted by Dorothy Retallack at the Colorado Woman's College in Denver using the college's three Biotronic Control Chambers. In one series of studies, the tone of F sound was played daily for three hours a day, intermittently in one laboratory, it was played for eight hours a day, constantly, and the control group had no sound introduced. Those plants where the F tone was played intermittingly for 3 hours a day grew twice as large and were twice as healthy as those in a sound-free environment. However, plants in the laboratory where the tone of Fconstantly for 8 hours daily died within two weeks of the experiment's beginning. Dorothy used a growing chamber, a variety of plant species (but the same in each chamber) and made sure the volume was consistent for all forms of music.

Different types of music were then utilized in her following experiments. She tried acid rock music by Led Zeppelin, Vanilla Fudge, and Hendrix. It was played to one group of plants and semi-pop music (of the 1970's) to another. The "acid rock music" plants were sickly and small compared to the control group of "semi popular" music (now termed soft rock).

The other genres of music she experimented with: were classical music (Debussy), jazz (she use Louis Armstrong among others), and Indian (Ravi Shankar). The plants grew large and healthy, with the plants actually growing towards the radio for each of these three forms of music, just like they bend towards sunlight. Dorothy also experimented with country music (such as Jonny Cash) and found they neither grew toward or away from the speakers and seemed neutral. While Dorothy did have a personal bias and by the end of her research she believed plants could feel and were capable of ESP. She felt perhaps it was the lyrics that the plants didn't like with the acid rock music.

It seems the plants like all types of music, except hard, pounding rhythms, but prefer stringed instruments the most. They also didn't like a constant tone played for 8 hours per day, but how many of us do!

Effective experiments need to involve the following factors, which Dorothy tried to maintain, but failed to measure the water and soil moisture with an accurate device:

  • the same plant types across the different conditions
  • a variety of species across the different conditions
  • music volume would need to be maintained at a consistent level
  • strict controls on all other external factors, e.g. light, warmth, etc
  • consistency of human interaction across the different conditions

Mythbusters have come up with a different result. Their experiments suggested that heavy metal seems to stimulate growth more than other types of music. The culprit is likely the rapid vibration that encourages activity. Perhaps these results could be pursued by searching the Mythbusters website on Discoverychannel.

Answer_3:_SMALL_SCALE_EXPERIMENTS">Answer_3:_SMALL_SCALE_EXPERIMENTS">Answer 3: SMALL SCALE EXPERIMENTSThe effect is the same as random noise, i.e. just the physical stress of sound. Music as such has no effect because:

1) Plants are not intelligent. In fact, they don't have a central nervous system. Music can only affect you if you understand it, and plants can't understand anything.

2) Plants have no auditory organs. They can't hear any more than you could hear through your skin if you had no ears.

If you look this up on the net, you'll see plenty of small scale experiments with positive results. Unfortunately, these experiments are fatally flawed in several ways. First, they are typically done with just 3 or 4 plants, and with such a small sample size any difference is likely to be from random chance. Second, and perhaps more importantly, the control is silent when it should be random noise with the same frequency spectrum and periodicity as the music. This is the only way to test the effects of music as such, not just the effects of sound. When the experiment is done with a good sample size (thousands of plants) and controlled properly, the results may well be negative.

Answer_4:_TRY_EXPERIMENTS_YOURSELF">Answer_4:_TRY_EXPERIMENTS_YOURSELF">Answer 4: TRY EXPERIMENTS YOURSELF"I tried experimenting myself. After 4 week of experimenting, the following were the results. I observed that the one that was in the best condition was the plant that was in the room with classical music. It grew in the range of 9-16 degrees away from the CD Player. The second best plant was the one in the room with no music. It grew from the range of 11-15 degrees away from the CD Player. The one that didn't do so well was the one in the room with rock music. It grew from the range of 33-85 degrees away from the CD Player. " Answer_5:_CLASSICAL_MUSIC">Answer_5:_CLASSICAL_MUSIC">Answer 5: CLASSICAL MUSIC

Many people swear by Classical music, which is used in some professional greenhouses to stimulate plant growth. In the book, "The Secret Life of Plants," the results of exposure to various types of music on houseplants is explored, among other fascinating plant experiments.

Answer_6:_HUMAN_VS_PLANTS">Answer_6:_HUMAN_VS_PLANTS">Answer 6: HUMAN VS PLANTSThe effect of music on plants is drastic. It is found that music stimulates the brain, but it depends what kind of music. For example the high frequency of mechanical waves that run hand in hand with rap and acid rock are damaging to the plant.

Some studies have indicated that they do indeed germinate and grow faster and healthier when exposed to Classical music.

Soft classic music or sounds of nature, water or birds Answer Myth Busters actually did an experiment to see if it is true that music has an affect on plant growth. They set up several experiments using different types of music and no music. All plants were growing in the same conditions expect for different types of music. Believe it or not, the ones in the greenhouse with heavy metal grew the best.

One may take the personal opinion that plants evolved and thrived for years without any form of music (pop, rock, rap or classical), so why would it make a difference now. If there is anything to the theories that abound it would have to do with vibrations/ and or frequency rather than specific music types. However, specific music types certainly emit certain types of vibrations.

Math and Arithmetic

What does base mean?

I see this question is in the music category. If you mean the musical term; bass, bass is the term used to decribe an instrument. So if you have a Bass clarinet, you have a Clarinet that plays low. It's also used to describe the lowest male voice.

In maths it means the number we group bigger numbers by: normal numbers are grouped by tens, so we say base 10, whereas computers use base 2 numbers (binary).

The base of a geometric figure is the bottom part.

A base in chemistry is a substance which reacts with an acid to make a salt and water only, or in more advanced theories a proton acceptor or electron pair donor.

Did Joe Exotic sing his own songs?

It turns out that there are two musicians behind the Joe Exotic songs, and neither of them are the man himself. According to Vanity Fair, Vince Johnson and vocalist Danny Clinton, members of the Clinton Johnson Band, are the ones who wrote and recorded all the big cat hits, including “I Saw A Tiger” and “Here Kitty Kitty.” The two men do appear in the credits of Tiger King, but Joe Exotic insisted to his staff and crew that it was him performing the songs. And he also didn’t bother telling the real musicians that he was taking the credit.

“I had no idea he was going to Milli Vanilli the songs,” Johnson told Vanity Fair. “It was a couple of months and two or three songs [into the collaboration] when I was on YouTube one night and just happened to look up Joe Exotic. And there he was, lip-syncing and acting like the ghost of Elvis [in these music videos]. I called him up, I was hot…And he bamboozled me about his reality show—that it was coming soon and he would make everything right as rain. I just wanted the proper credit.”

How do you play Hockey Night In Canada theme song on the piano?

I take it you are referring to the Hockey Night in Canada musical

theme that was played at the introduction/closure of the televised

games from the mid-60's through to the mid 2000's. This theme

is not a song since there are no lyrics. Unfortunately the British

composer of this theme refused to renegotiate the use of her

composition with the CBC television network and so it is no longer

heard. The musical score may be available in some music stores.
