Dear colleagues, I feel guiltily self serving in announcing my own work, but here goes. I have a blog, musictheorybridges.wordpress.com, devoted to applying "traditional" theoretical perspectives to (broadly-construed) "popular" music and putting "classical" and "popular" music side by side. (I've shared posts from it here before.) I intend it as a form of public musicology for a musically-educated audience, and I also sometimes use readings from it for class assignments. For example, though I wrote this too late to use it this year, I will probably use the post on the suspension in the Miley Cyrus song "Wrecking Ball" in future semesters. I share these posts in case you might also find them useful in your teaching, in case you might enjoy them over your spring break, or at the very least to keep improving my visitors count until I get tenure! In case it's helpful, I try to use lots of tags so that it's easy to find posts based on genre (pop, rock, etc.), famous artists (e.g., The Beatles), topics (lament bass), and even types of theory classes (chromatic harmony, form, etc.).
If anyone has any questions about running a blog for a broader audience, or what kind of impact I feel like I have, I'd be happy to chat sometime.
