Abstract

Popular song is a genre that is characterized by adaptation and appropriation practices, in much the same way that other creative media and literary and screen genres are. In arguing that the relationship between the economically and socially significant creative song industry and adaptation theory and practice has not been sufficiently recognized hitherto, Chapter 18 introduces a framework for exploring both intramedial and intermedial varieties of adaptation. Taking off from American song composer Ned Rorem’s provocative designation of the song form as “a bastard,” the essay propounds a taxonomy of types and variations, providing and discussing illustrative examples of each.
