What to Listen For in Rock

Ken Stephenson

Yale University Press

This chapter examines the form of rock music. It focuses on the means of separation and contrast by which portions of a piece are made to sound distinct from one another, and with the order in which these portions are presented or repeated. It analyzes the form of several rock songs including REO Speedwagon's “Keep On Loving You”, The Beatles' “I Saw Her Standing There”, and Janet Jackson's “Alright”.

Keywords:   form, rock music, REO Speedwagon, Keep on Loving You, The Beatles, I Saw Her Standing There, Janet Jackson, Alright
