Songwriters write about their lives since their lyrics are a reflection of their personal experiences. Often, a coping mechanism for dealing with a problem is to bring the issue out in the open.
original songs when I had what I thought was an epiphany: ―Song lyrics are just poems put to
Heart. Memories. Wishes. My first song is “You’ll be In My Heart” By Phil Collins. In this song the literary device used to convey the theme of when someone loses someone important to them, they will be by there side forever and never leave is repetition. My second song choice is “My Wish” By Rascal Flatts. In this song the literary device pathos helps convey the theme of never giving up on dreams and when other people doubt other people's goals but they continue to keep moving forward.
For my song I have chosen to do “Forever” by Jeff Williams. Jeff Williams is a songwriter that has other musical abilities like being able to play keyboards, guitar, bass, and drums. He is also an Assistant Professor at Berklee College of Music. He wrote this song to accompany a death scene in a web series called Red vs. Blue in the year 2012. He wrote this song for Red vs. Blue because he was the company that makes these videos an official songwriter for the past 3 seasons of the show. It was song by Jeff Williams’s daughter Casey Lee Williams. Therefore the meaning and tone of the song is one that is both deep and significant to people of all ages.
The song that I chose to write about is “Now that we’re men” by Spongebob sSuarepants, The main topic in this song is that two young males have taken on a big challenge to prove that they are good enough to be called men. In this song Spongebob and Patrick are both going after the crown that Plankton stole from King Neptune. A few of the best quotes in the song are; “Get the crown save the town, and Mr.Krabs”, “ we’re tough enough to save the day now that we’re men, “they’ll pass the test and finish the quest for the crown”. The first quote is powerful because it shows how much them stepping up is meaning to the whole town and Mr.Krabs. The second quote is very meaningful because it is telling the listeners that once you become a man there
When I was in fifth grade, I was caught between two worlds, playing a woodwind or string instrument. If I played a woodwind instrument I would have to blow in it to make music, but string instruments are played with a bow to make music. After much thought, I decided that the violin was the best instrument for me, because it has a beautiful, unique sound, plus the possibilities are never-ending. I could receive a compliment from a teacher, or even get accepted to the symphony.
The music industry at Decatur High School is at its peak with artist making music at every corner. One pair of musicians affects the students at the school positively and negatively.
In Australia, the art of collaboration is alive and well. But the concept of writing a song purely for another performer is engraved in Nashville’s music industry. During a conversation with locals here in Nashville, a self description of a ‘songwriter’ can contrast with my own understanding of this term. The Nashville music industry thrives from a clear distinction between a writer and a performer, and perhaps this clear focus on refining the art of story telling is what engraves Nashville as the United States hub for songwriting.
Ever since I was a small child, I have loved music. The strong, steady beats, the
The ability to portray a narrative through a song helps visualize the meaning of a unique story. Depending on the message the song delineates, can either put a saccharine smile on one’s face or generate a cascade of tears. The impactfulness of a story, especially through a song, provides meaningful lyrics which may relate to a dramatic event in a person’s life. Since the days of Native Americans singing songs and telling oracles, the lyrics a song possesses forms special stories that helps a person with their individual struggles in life. Therefore, people often refer to songs to revitalize an unpleasant day. Notable artists usually achieve significant success when they produce impactful songs that many can relate to. Their awareness
When words fail, music speaks. Music starts off as five lined, four spaced staff. The four spaces spell out the word face, F.A.C.E., which are the names of the notes. The five lines stand for: Every Good Boy Does Fine. Most people think an artist just write the words down, makes it rhyme and POOF!!, You have yourself some music. Although this is true, music has thousands upon thousands of creative steps you must take. There is a lot more to music, and a lot more I’m still learning though.
This is a very crucial step to learning how to sing/rap a song. Without the lyrics you have no clue what you are saying. You are better of mumbling the song acting like you are singing/rapping along with the song. It is best to go on the internet and look up song lyrics. Read over the lyrics a couple times so it is easier to remember the song. After that play the song and try to sing/rap along while still looking at the lyrics. Once you are able to sing/rap along with the song while looking at the lyrics, try to sing/rap along with the song without the lyrics. This process is hard. Once it is easy to remember the song without the lyrics in front of you try to sing/rap the song without the words playing and without the lyrics in front of you. This is a hard step but, once you get the hang of it, it will be a piece of cake to sing/rap a song. For an example for the song “Soul Food” I looked up the lyrics to the song and started rapping it as soon as possible. I used this process to do
Music; Indefinable by words alone. It is not only something you can hear but what you can feel. It is something your soul is able to reach out and touch. Music also has the power to bring us as humans, together. It is one language spoken by all cultures, sexes, races, age and religions. Music also controls our emotions; it makes us happy, sad, angry, relaxed, etc. We also can express ourselves through music. It can affect our personality.. someone who listens to classical, like Mozart or Bach, all the time is going to be smarter and more intellectual than someone who listens to rap or metal, and someone who listens to more upbeat happier music, like Ska or Swing, is more likely to
Musical instruments have played many major roles in helping with the construction of many societies around the world today. Many people do not realize what musical instruments have been responsible for and how they have helped shape the world today. There have been many instruments that have helped create and sculpt the world, but one instrument that I want to inform readers about is the trumpet and where it came from, as well as how it has changed over many years. The point that I am arguing is the fact that many people do not know where the trumpet has come from and how it has affected society.
“How can I be proud of my Jamaican roots, when my ancestors had been slaves”? This question asked by a woman with Jamaican roots followed British novelist Andrea Levy for a long time. She wondered how anyone could be ashamed of his or her legacy and thus the foundation of her book, The Long Song, was laid. However, writing the book was a more difficult task than presumed. Levy considered many things at the preliminary stage of the book as she knew that she didn’t want to write yet another historical novel about slavery. This is the reason why she chose to write the “behind the scenes”-essay, The Writing of The Long Song. Herein she elaborates and discusses the process of writing her book and raises important
