Research & Planning: Genre types

Looking into different types of genre by viewing different music videos and analysing the cos&conventions of what type of camera shoot, lighting and colours are used in the genre, then also looking at what type of music video  is it, narrative (story based) or performance.

POP-  music of general appeal to teenagers; a bland watered-down version of rock'n'roll with more rhythm and harmony and an emphasis on romantic love, Artist which show this are Rhianna, Taylor Swift, Paloma Faith, Bruno Mars, All Time Low etc.
You belong with me- Taylor Swift
This video is an example of pop as it shows a love story, it is quite stereotypical as it shows the girl wanting the guy but he is with some other girl but in the end they get together. This is achieved by the use of bright lighting and colours on the seen as popular girl and the guy, wherefore the 'girl next door' blends in with the sets not give the feel she isn't being noticed. 

R&B-is a music genre that combines elements of rhythm and bluespopsoulfunk and hip hop. It is mainly seen to me done by African- Americans, artist which show this are Sean Paul, Jay-z, Pitbull, N-Dubz ect. 

Number 1-Tinchy Stryder Ft. N-Dubz
This video is performance based  with Tinchy and N-Dubz sing/ dancing to the music, the lyrics are not to different from that of a pop song as they are talking about love but it shows rapping therefore it is classed as R&B.

ROCK-is a genre of popular music that originated as "rock and roll" in 1950s America and developed into a range of different styles in the 1960s and later, particularly in the United Kingdom and the United States. Artist such as Foo Fighters, Nirvana, The Kooks, Red Hot Chilli Peppers etc. These videos show the band playing there instruments but are also narrative videos that link with the lyrics.
Walk- Foo Fighters
This video have a intro that last about a 1 minutes to starts the narrative off of a radio station while Dave Grohl sitting in his car stuck in traffic, this video goes on to show the band, but from the beginning you know it is performance as Dave is walking with his guitar. 

ALTERNATIVE&PUNK- is a genre of rock music that emerged from the independent music underground of the 1980s and became widely popular by the 1990s. there video are very similar to that of rock videos, artist include My chemical Romance  Blink 182, Kings Of Leon, Paramore, Go:Audio etc.. 
This video is simple and doesn't have a story to it, the whole thing is shot in one room, with the band and just a let amount of lighting with strobe lights, but not the strong and a hanging light bulb with Hayley Williams holds on to a couple of times and sings in to it, meanwhile the editing to this video links in with the song as it has quick cuts with follows with the rhythm of the music.
