My theme is based off of a movie call Rudy made by David Anspaugh. It was made in 1993. It's based off a true story. It starts off with a kid named Rudy Ruettiger who wanted to play football, he grew up wanting to play the sport. He has always wanted to play for the University of Noter Dame, but he had a problem. He had a lot of physical and educational problems. Which meant he wasn't going to Notre Dame. Rudy works at his dad's steel mill and tries really hard to get out of working for his dad's steel mill when his best friend dies from one of the machines overheating and it explodes. Rudy gets into Notre Dame and pushes his way to get onto the football team. So the theme of the movie is that never give up and if you don't succeed then try again. This movie is important to me because it relates to what I'm going through in life in some
The Song from what I can gather is about perception and realizing a common thread between all of us as human beings to look past mistakes. At the same time he seems to be talking to himself
To start off, the first stanza in her song represents a sense of how unavoidable change is and how the confusion of the bond combined with the stress of the blame game can lead to a doomed
Here she comes down a level from the previous verse reminding herself that to get her point across she need stay compose and returns to the original slow rhythm. In this verse she uses repetition to emphasize the power of the title “lonely boy”. Continuing with “How can you say no child is left behind?” Referring to Bush’s No Child Left Behind Act implemented in an attempt to recuse Americas education system.
People will always need help and I think that when you do not feel secure, there is always important to call for help. My second song was “I will Survive” Gloria Gaynor because sometime after a break up, some people feel unconfident and not safety, but after a time passes, people can come along with that security that they used to have before.
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.
Moreover, another reason music could impact a person’s life is because the listener could relate to the song they favor. Personally, my favorite types of songs are those that I can relate to. One song that comes to my mind in a way that I can relate to in many ways is ‘Stressed Out’ by Twenty One Pilots. In ‘Stressed Out’, the singer, Tyler Joseph, expresses his own experience on his view on his own experience of being a child growing older. The song also focuses on us, as people, and how we grow up by being introduced to all these new responsibilities and things we need to do and think about everyday. In order to do that, we go through a moment in our lives that leaves our childhood behind and ‘out of student loans and tree house homes, we all would take the ladder’ to adulthood. As a
There are so many influential songs that I can relate to. Marvin Gaye, “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”, wrote one that stands out. This classic song has lyrics that have withstood time. Many times, in rigorous courses throughout high school and Nova Southeastern University I sang out this song, pushing myself forward realizing the mountain in front of me is actually attainable. A person who is staunch and faithful can conquer any “mountain” and their desired endeavors.
The chorus takes place in the mind of the mentor, ?where did I go wrong?/I lost a friend/somewhere along in the bitterness/and I would have stayed up with you all night/had I known how to save a life.? He is, at heart, telling himself he failed to save someone because he didn?t know how. The very first line of the song the lyrics read, ?step one, you say we need to talk,? which is obviously trying to give a step-by-step detail of how someone would go about having a difficult talk with someone who may be ruining their life. The song was written to guide someone to help those in need. In an interview that Christian radio personality, Stan Friedman, had with Isaac Slade, the Fray?s lead vocalist, Friedman mentions, ?The title track to How to Save a Life recounts Slade's mentoring relationship with a teenager at a Christian halfway house who seemed hell-bent on destroying himself?but, fortunately, did not? (Christian Music Today). In the same interview Slade says:
All her memories of the night before are starting to come back to her. The line “It’s not enough to face your own regrets” (line 7) alludes to things she may have said or done and now wishes she could take it back. She is remembering the words that she spoke. Or could this be the words that someone else said to her? (Though they’re coming back fast, the things you said)” (line 8). The words that were said and the actions that were done start to come back into focus and the speaker is left to wallow in her remorse. She realizes the words and actions are not something that can be taken back. All the speaker can do is clean up the messes that has been made, think about the words that were spoken and how they led to the end of her
Looking back at when I was assigned to write this Rhetorical Analysis, I was excited. I was given the option of picking two articles or two songs to write about. Being a big lover of music, I took the opportunity to analyze and put into conversation two songs of my choosing. After contemplating over which songs I would be analyzing, I finally chose two and began to brainstorm. However, as I was brainstorming, I realized that one of the songs I chose, did not seem to be very fitting for the message I wanted to talk about. So, after a little more contemplating I chose a different one. The two songs that my Rhetorical Analysis introduce are “Roar” by Katy Perry and “Brave” by Sara Bareilles. I chose these songs because they do a fantastic job at sending out a strong message of self-empowerment. This is a topic that I feel strongly about.
Within the first two verses of the song, this young woman presents an issue that is all too common for many people. She has big dreams and wants to make a name for herself, but to succumb to making that dream a reality, she would have to desert the loved ones that have made
I have chosen 300 Violin Orchestra by Jorge Quintero. As a child, my mother would play classical music for me because the doctor recommended it. Recently I read studies that brought to light the capability of focusing and recapturing what has been studied could be better done if the student listened to wordless songs i.e. classical music, while studying. When I gave it a try I realized my focus increased and just stuck to it. The song mentioned above represents me in such way that I had previously listened to classical and when I reconnected to it for school purposes I realized I had found my home in music. I chose that specific song because although it includes violin it provides this sense of modernity and really enlightens my mood.
Throughout my life, no single thing has had a greater impact than music. It has made me who I am today, and I cannot remember a time when music wasn’t a huge part of myself - my earliest memories all contain the music that my parents played. Beyond being a product purely for enjoyment, as it was for a long time in my earliest years, music has gone on to become a fundamental part of who I am, how I spend my time, and who I spend that time with. It motivates me to be better for numerous reasons. I credit my early involvement in music with most of the successes I have had to this date.
I grew up listening to music everyday not knowing it would save my life in the end... the words that I would listen to would somehow connect with how I was feeling or what I was going through. Music truly soothes the soul and just somehow gives you hope to continue on or to stop something. I think I related my problems to the songs, it would give me comfort knowing I wasn't the only one who was feeling the way I once was. It showed me life was worth living and fighting for. Take Demi Lovato for instant, she was going through major depression and found herself through the music she would produce. A lot of artist are actually like this and only some really come out and tell their true story on how music saved them. It's incredible to know that no matter what you're going through someone, somewhere has gone through it too.
