Ride of the Valkyries and Classic Songs
So, our class listened to the Ride of the Valkyries in class and it reminds me of classic sci fi movies I've watched when I was a kid. This song was performed in the opera known as Die Walkure, performed in 1870. Classic music like this one are very important in culture, because, according to prof Pat, the United States has built up its culture from other countries customs. This ability of having this "mixed" culture creates an important historical context of our society as a whole. These classic albums, songs, and movies provide us the important instruments in creating newer innovations.
