Shivaree is an American alternative pop/rock band formed in 1997 consisting of Ambrosia Parsley , Danny McGough , and Duke McVinnie . Shivaree is best known for the song "Goodnight Moon", released in 1999 and appearing in Dawson's Creek and Kill Bill: Volume 2. Shivaree officially separated in 2007 after a very brief promotional tour of their last album "Tainted Love". The band takes its name from the French term, "shivaree", which means,... roughly, a noisy mock serenade for newlyweds. It is most commonly used along the Mississippi River, and to the west of it. They have produced four full-length albums and have approximately 500,000 combined sales.. They credit numerous other musicians in their work and are usually joined by two or three other collaborators when performing live. The band have mentioned their use of primarily Southern ideas and memes, and cite William Faulkner as an influence. After contract disagreements with their previous label, it appeared that the group would split up after their second album. However, an EP and another two albums later followed.more
Rock music is a genre of popular music that originated as "rock and roll" in 1950s America and developed into a range of different styles in the... 1960s and later, particularly in the United Kingdom and the United States. It has its roots in 1940s' and 1950s' rock and roll, itself heavily influenced by rhythm and blues and country music. Rock music also drew strongly on a number of other genres such as blues and folk, and incorporated influences from jazz, classical and other musical sources. Musically, rock has centered around the electric guitar, usually as part of a rock group with bass guitar and drums. Typically, rock is song-based music usually with a 4/4 time signature utilizing a verse-chorus form, but the genre has become extremely diverse and common musical characteristics are difficult to define. Like pop music, lyrics often stress romantic love but also address a wide variety of other themes that are frequently social or political in emphasis. The dominance of rock by white, male musicians has been seen as one of the key factors shaping the themes explored in rock music.more
