Good Booty review ☆ 3 NPR Best Books of 2017In this sweeping history of popular music in the United States NPR’s acclaimed music critic examines how popular music shapes fundamental American ideas and beliefs allowing us to communicate difficult emotions and truths about our most fraught social issues most notably sex and raceIn Good Booty Ann Powers explores how popular music became America’s primary erotic art form Powers takes us from nineteenth century New Orleans through dance crazed Jazz Age New York to the teen scream years of mid twentieth centur. This is really great and will definitely form a crucial part of my teaching for years to come I m stingy with my 5 star reviews and I explain the reasons for it not being a perfect book below I devoured this book in record time and there is a good reason for this Powers has produced a truly sweeping piece of criticism and dare I say it musicology of race sex and popular music Some of her insights show a truly remarkable synthesis of criticism and scholarship that demonstrates why the humanities needs to embrace public cultural critics Powers has helped to make NPR a cutting edge forum for music programming and criticism for a few years now For those of you who have enjoyed her essays on everything from Bruce Springsteen surprisingly missing from this book to Prince this book shows off just how lucky we are to have herSomething that I noticed as I made my way through the book was its relationship to binaries nearly all of them invoked in the book s title When it comes to love gender sex and sexuality Powers writes with incredible dexterity to trouble the boundaries and binaries that threaten to overpower everything else when talking about popular music history My one criticism comes from my perspective as a scholar Her discussion of race while mostly on point left me wondering about the dangers of posing the story of popular music in the US through a mostly black and white matrix of power relations Surely there are other racial and ethnic groups who have exerted a strong influence in US pop music As I write this review Despacito is about to break the record for most consecutive weeks at the top of the Billboard chart The song is clearly about sex and yet if a curious listener tried to find the roots of the song s success in this book they would be missing decades of Latinx Caribbean and Latin American musical influences Other major immigrant groups are also missing south Asians for example but it seems to me that this is a larger problem of North American pop music criticism in general I come at this as someone who grew up in a place with a huge Mexican American population and performed in a music program that largely relegated anything that didn t fit the blackwhite paradigm to exotic reductions I care about it because I have seen the problem replicated in my own scholarly societies I wonder if the marginal status of Americans who trouble the blackwhite binary in mainstream pop music histories comes from the fact that the tradition of American music history has largely been written largely in those terms for decades now That really is my only uibble with the book My discomfort isn t about Powers but rather N American pop music criticism and scholarship in generalOverall this book is a tour de force of criticism and new insights Her fluid use of feminist and cyborg theory in the last chapter truly took my breath away It made me want to sit down and talk with her about ueen Bey virality and vocaloids for hours This book is written with a startling amount of compassion for all of the figures she treats even those whose unconventional attitudes about sex and bodies would otherwise receive the scorn by today s standards At this moment of racially charged divisiveness that kind of sensitivity is needed than ever especially over a form of expressive culture that so many people think is either too important ie too personal or not important enough to receive scholarly treatment So thank you Ann Powers I ll treasure both the audio and physical copies of this book in my possession
