“Pretty Hurts” by Beyonce is embedded with Pathos.“Are you happy with yourself?, ” (Beyonce, Pretty Hurts). This line of the song provoking and emotion-filled song causes the listener to think about their self-esteem. The lyrics have the ability to emotionally connect to the audience that he or she is speaking to, as the topic is not one spoken about much. The emotions of how society can make people feel, pressured, self-conscious, not worthy. The songs make the audience reflect on themselves, do they fall into the pressure?

Every song has literary elements that contribute to the song’s meaning. In “Everybody Hurts” written and performed by Bill Berry, Peter Buck, Mike Mills, and Michael STIPE, artists of R.E.M, I can relate to its literary terms. The literary terms I can relate to are the tone, the conflict, and the theme.
In his book “Deep Down Dark: The Untold Stories of 33 Men Buried in a Chilean Mine, and the Miracle That Set Them Free,” Hector Tobar recounts the story of 33 miners who spent 69 days trapped more than 2000 feet underground in the Chile’s San Jose mines following the collapse of the mine in 2010. According to Tobar (2015), the disaster began on a day shift around noon when miners working deep inside the mountain excavating minerals started feeling vibrations. A sudden massive explosion then followed and the passageways of the mines filled with dust clouds.

I find it to be a very touching song. While digging deeper and attempting to better understand my associative response to this song, I discovered a belief that this song elicits these particular emotional reactions from me because I have been a sufferer of depression and suicidal thoughts in varying degrees for almost as long as I can remember.

I believe that there are times when the only thing needed is for someone else to point out that life hasn’t always been so bad and to emphasize that there have been good times too. If there is someone who can do that, then they may also be able to stress the belief that there could be more good times coming but the storm has to run its course before the sunlight can find its way back through to shine again.

Other lyrics from this song that display this
