Part of the Palgrave Studies in Audio-Visual Culture book series (PSAVC)


In his introduction Hogg sets out the need for a historical analysis of the development of popular music function in film and defines key terms which will be used throughout the book. An unrivalled period in this development is identified as that from the release of A Hard Day’s Night to that of Saturday Night Fever, with this being divided into three significant phases; The British Invasion Phase, The New Hollywood Alienation Phase and The Disco Phase. From each of these phases, a primary film text is selected for analysis. The introduction also sets out the need to analyze phases immediately preceding and proceeding this period to further substantiate its importance.
