I'm sorry this is so late! Work has been absolutely insane and due to the lack of staff, I am working 60+ hours between both jobs. Anyway, let's get started!
Going back to the 1920's during ragtime, hot jazz, cabaret, burlesque, vaudeville, the prohibition and speakeasies.
Music was a very important part of the culture of the 20's. It gave people a new sense of fashion, such as hair styles, clothes, slang, and the way people danced. People during the 20's would usually go to places called "SPEAK-EASY'S. A sort of underground bar or club, this is the place where a lot of jazz was played, and here people would dance and usally drink the Hootch.
In the United States, cabaret had developed along more glamorous and less intellectually ambitious lines. In New York during the 1910s, several large cafes provided singers and came to be known as "cabarets." Delmonico's, Reisenweber's, Palaise Royale and Shanley's all became legendary night spots. Within a few years, dance floors became a required part of the cabaret environment. When a 1913 ordinance forced Manhattan's cabarets to close by 2:00 AM, members-only clubs sprang up and stayed open for dancing till all hours -- the first "night clubs."
Burlesque originated in nineteenth-century music hall entertainments and vaudeville. In the early twentieth century it emerged as a popular blend of satire, performance art, and adult entertainment. In burlesque, performers often create elaborate sets with lush, colorful costumes, mood-appropriate music, and dramatic lighting. It may also include novelty acts, such as fire-breathing or demonstrations of unusual flexibility, to enhance the impact of performances. Like its cousin, commedia dell'arte, burlesque turns social norms head over heels. The genre traditionally encompasses a variety of acts such as dancing girls, chanson singers, stand-up comics, mime artists, and strip tease, all satirical and with a saucy edge.
Alrighty, now that the history lesson is over, let's see which songs were paired up with the beautiful boys of Shinee!!
JongHyun: Van & Schenck ~ Ain't We Got Fun (1921) ♬ Every morning, Every evening, Ain't we got fun? Not much money, Oh, but honey, Ain't we got fun? The rent's unpaid dear, We haven't a bus. But smiles were made, dear, For people like us. In the winter, in the Summer, Don't we have fun? Times are bum and getting bummer Still we have fun. There's nothing surer, The rich get richer and the poor get children. In the meantime, In between time, Ain't we got fun! ♬
MinHo: Nora Bayes ~ Make Believe (1921) ♬ Tho' your love dreams have gone, make believe, don't let on Smile tho' your heart may be broken For when bad luck departs, you will find good luck starts Don't grieve, just make believe ♬
TaeMin: Eddie Cantor ~ Makin' Whoopee (1929) ♬ She calls him "Toodles" and rolls her eyes She makes him strudles and bakes him pies What is it all for? It's so he'll fall for making whoopee Another year or maybe less What's this I hear, well, can't you guess? She feels neglected, so he's suspected Of making whoopee ♬
Key: Frank Crumit ~ I Married a Bootlegger's Daughter (1928) ♬ So I married the bootlegger's daughter and now I'm just rolling in dough The way she drinks gin is a terrible sin but "girls will be girls" as you know Prohibition's the least of our worries for the whole bloomin' world may go dry Her Dad made his will and he left the old still to the bootlegger's daughter and I ♬
Onew: Paul O'Montis ~ I Can't Give You Anything But Love (1928) ♬ Gee I'd like to see you looking swell, baby. Diamond bracelets Woolworth doesn't sell, baby. Till that lucky day you know darned well, baby. I can't give you anything but love. ♬ it was extremely difficult to find the lyrics to this song since the original Cabaret song is in German.
well, that's Shinee in the 1920's. what'd you think?
