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
As you can see the tone of the poem has started to change. It started
The girl has her doubts, but wants to do whatever the man wants her to do. She wants the man to be happy and love her, and for things to go back
She gave him everything, and she believed in him. She risked everything for him, believing he was the one for her, but he hurt her and rejected her love. He had not capability of truly loving, ever being remorseful and without self-control. He did not appreciate her; walked all over her, and probably thought he could do better, “Throw your soul through every open door” “Count your blessings to find what you look for.” I do not see it as they were in a relationship. I think he strung her along and played with her, enjoyed toying with and controlling her. He has finally gone too far and she is done, “Finally I can see you crystal clear” “Go ahead and sell me out and I’ll lay your ship bare.” But, he left her with scars with memories of him. She was very much in love with him. She knows they could have had it all. It causes her pain to the point of not being able to breathe. But the tide is turning, she is not sad anymore; she is becoming angry. At one point in the song she sings, "There is a fire starting in my heart, reaching a fever pitch, bringing me out of the dark.” Her anger is allowing her to open up her eyes and see the reality of the relationship. Now, she wants revenge. She wants him to suffer like he made her suffer. He broke her heart, but she knows that in the end he did not just break her heart. He broke his heart too. She knows that if she leaves, he will see her and see that they could have had future of fidelity and joy.
The tone of this song is hopeful. It tells women of all ages to stay true to themselves, even when everyone else around them is changing. This is mostly relatable to teenagers attending high school. In the song it says, “Hold on to your innocence, stand your ground when everyone’s giving in”. During high school, children are introduced to various new things, such as: drugs, sex, and alcohol. It is the students’ personal choice whether to give in to these new additions or not, but the song suggests they stand up even when everyone else around them has given in. The song has three stanzas with four lines. The rhyme scheme is grouped into pairs, rhyming the first two lines and the last two lines in each stanza. Rhyming two consecutive lines can make the song easier to remember. “This One’s for the Girls” is extremely catchy, not only by its meaning, but also its rhyme scheme. It makes an imprint on one’s brain.
Through Ted Talks, clinical psychologist, Meg Jay, addresses the fact that a lot of people are settling down later than they used to. Jay states that many people believe that 30 is the new 20, when in fact, people in their 20s should be taking advantage of this time of their life. 80% of life-defining moments take place by the age of 35, and a lot of people seem to be wasting time and waiting longer to make decisions and take control of their life. Not only is marriage happening later nowadays, but schooling, work, and death are as well. Being in your 20s is a great time to educate yourself about what your options are.
Musically a return to verse one but Anita's snaky, swinging triplets in the vocal part make more of her suggestive nature (rather than the rather direct and unsubtle quavers of Riff and Bernardo)
There isn’t really a tone in the book. The author writes as if she was more informational. I think the book is actually a little bit suspenseful because when I read it I couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen next.

The 1980’s consisted of several historical events and societal changes that have been relived though the lyrics of many young hip-hop artists. Of the numerous genres of songs, hip-hop has been labeled as of the most relatable genres. During this 1980’s, many of the songs that were written by male hip-hop artist tend to focus on the relationship aspect of male and female interactions. This finding is similar to what was stated in Frith’s article (1986) that most successful pop songs were about being “happy in love” and “frustrated in love” as well as having a sex interest (p. 78). Instead of using derogatory terms to describe women, men felt the need to use more delicate and gentle terms. Through their music, artists portrayed women as individuals who provide love, support, happiness and fulfillment to a man’s life. Furthermore, male artists portrayed themselves as men who weren’t afraid to express their emotions, admit their dependency on women, and their willingness to do what it takes to keep a woman. There were no signs of hypermasculinity or dominance in the first few songs
Ellsworth Toohey and Gail Wynand both desire the same thing—power. However, they each have different ideas about the best way to obtain it. Wynand goes about acquiring power by catering to the most sordid aspects of human nature; he strives to give the readers of the Banner unfiltered content that will appeal to the worst parts of them. Toohey, on the other hand, seeks to bring out the mediocrity in mankind. He idealizes a society lacking any individuality in which everyone works for the benefit of everyone else. Both of these characters also contrast in interesting ways with Howard Roark, who does not allow people or societal influences to factor into any of his decisions.
