Second, another song that I feel best represents transformation is a song entitled “Breaking Point” by Keri Hilson. In this song the singer says that there is a limit to her love. In the song she says that there is a limit to her love. That meaning that shes done with men cheating on her and hurting and that its time to take a stand. In the chorus of the song Keri Hilson repeatedly says that there is a limit to her love. In the video its Keri Hilson and a bunch of other women chanting that their love has a limit. They are finally taking a stand to all the men that her them. I feel that people take other peoples kindness for weakness. Which has happened to me before many times and it doesn’t feel great at all. So, the song is very powerful to

I chose the song Unwritten by Natasha Bendingfield to represent the intense theme of feminism in this novel. This story discusses how women are scrutinised more harshly in the political world for instance how Frankie’s mother, is treated very differently to her male opponents by the media. In the novel, she is nick named ‘the yummy mummy’ continually in the media, as a mock to her being female. The lyrics of the song “We've been conditioned to not make mistakes, but I can't live that way” related directly to the theme of feminism, a main theme in this novel. These lyrics portray how Francesca’s mother is expected to encompass femininity and be beyond reprimand on all areas, as the media’s degradation of her increases
African American music artists tend to have to use their work to voice some of the struggles their heritage has faced in the past. Artists like Beyoncé and J. Cole have been known to release songs that evoke much emotion. Beyoncé in particular released a highly controversial music video for her song “Formation” the day before she was set to perform at the Super Bowl 50. "Formation" is a bold, five-minute video that displays a glimpse of some important events in African American history, but also consists of elements of Beyoncé’s personal life. Beyoncé uses controversial lyrics to verbally represent who she is and visual imagery to illustrate a higher social message.
Under the bridge is a song by Red Hot Chili Peppers, written by vocalist Anthony Kiedis. Keidis reference to “bridge”Kiedis use of imagery in the lyrics to this song communicate a dark time in his life but also as a listener we can relate with a difficult time in our own life.

The melancholy can be felt in the first stanza, “Lonely as I am together we cry.” Kiedis has chosen different methods to give the song specific sounds that affect the pace and
For example, Wait and See. (Highly recoomend listening to it. It still applies to America, even though it was made in 2015.) It talks about how bad the world is getting, how we are all parting. I feel like the song is so honest and open, warning people of the world. “Wait and see, when the world stops spinning and we’re all pretending to be okay. But it’s hard to be when you find out it’s fake.” I know this is about the person you admire, but let’s talk about how that’s spooky. The world is crashing, we’re having hurricane after hurricane, the ice caps are melting, there’s a whole in the Ozone layer! We aren’t talking about it, we aren’t talking about how humans are the ones responsible. Everyone wants to act like it isn’t real. The song is pointing out that fact. If humans were more self aware, more kind, we wouldn’t have destroye our only Earth. Think about
A recent performance that captured not only the audience but also the judges on American Idol by Kelly Clarkson called “Piece By Piece” not only had everybody in tears but also in complete awe. This performance became huge in the world of Facebook, so many people watching the video, sharing the video, and telling their stories about their feelings related to the lyrics. Throughout this essay I will be discussing Kelly Clarkson’s journey throughout her life, how single family parenting is impacting the society, how the outlook on single family homes have changed throughout generations because it is becoming more of a norm and finally the emotional connection to the songs that she has written in regards to her father and the struggles she has faced throughout her life. To me Kelly has a way of capturing her audience and pulling them into the songs and really making the lyrics make sense, and helping people in similar situations realize that they are not alone in their struggles.

Why does Katy Perry’s “Rise” mean so much to me? One reason why this song has been very important to me in my life is because of all the hard times that I’ve gone through since last year (2016). Second, being a musician, I’ve notice that the music industry has been creating the “same” music these days that barely have meaning, inspirational and is coming to a slight continuous plateau and I don’t see that when it comes to Katy Perry’s music. Lastly, the chords and the melodic structures that are playing in the background support the lyrics that are being sung/ portrayed throughout the entire song are important when it comes to the song
An outstanding singer who also promotes feminism to new generations throughout her career is Kesha. She came back with Woman, an upbeat, girl power anthem that turned out to be the feminist song of the summer of 2017. The song's country-themed music video featured her as the most stylish cowgirl in town, backed up by the dynamic horns section of the band The Dap-Kings. The song has a confident party vibe with strongly worded feminist lyrics. "Don't buy me a drink, I make my money," she sings in the song's bridge. (Kesha, 2017) "Don't touch my weave, don't call me honey." (Kesha, 2017) Kesha states that it was such a beautiful experience composing a strong female empowerment song. She has always been a feminist, but for most of her life she

In today’s society with the majority of our lives being surrounded by popular culture no matter where we go, we can think of these artifacts as a part of a way of living in our world.

Therefore, I have decided to critique the video of a Piglet twerking to the song “Work” by Rihanna. I will explain how the message resonates with people and how this video shows a narrative.
Let the battle of the divas commence! Katy Perry is working on a reply to Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood”, which is known to be about the feud between Perry and the former. Perry has teamed up with her ex boyfriend Diplo on the supposed track. “Katy knew Diplo would be just the man to produce “Crocodile Tears” for her and has now registered it,” an unnamed source told Hollywood Life. The pairing is perfect for the song, seeing as how Diplo has not had a great relationship with Swift either. Back in 2014, Diplo completely humiliated the “Style” singer about her not so voluptuous butt. “ Someone should make a kickstarter to get taylor swift a booty,” he wrote. Diplo took it even further when he actually started a fund for Swift’s booty. I guess he
The song, “Make It Stop (Septembers Children)” by Rise Against, relates to the real world controversy of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender rights. Most specifically, teenagers who are are being bullied to the point of suicide. This song was released in 2011, just after a large group of LGBT teen suicides in September of 2010, and was also released alongside the rise of the It Gets Better campaign.
In my opinion “Let her go” it’s a song beautiful song about something that we can all relate as a person going through a breakout on a relationship or even a death in a family. For me the most important thing when hearing a song, it’s the sound, as a music producer I like to hear new sounds from songs, and second it’s the lyrics of a song because words for me have a lot of value and sometimes I hear songs that help me go through a hard situation in life.
