The Dave Matthews Band has been a musical power house for years. They have meshed together almost every type of music together to create their extremely unique sounds and attractiveness towards their music. Dave Matthews, lead singer and guitarist from South Africa has put together a band that no one will ever be able to create again. Dave picked four extremely talented and unique sounding men to join his band and together they have created some amazing music. The members of the band include Stefan Lessard on bass, Boyd Tinsley on violin, Leroi Moore on saxophone and one of the best drummers in the world, Carter Beauford. Together these men will one day leave behind a similar reputation as one of the all time greatest "jam" bands of time.
Whenever I start to freak out about school or a friendship or any other sort of conflict in my life I have to sit down and listen to this song. I have an extremely manic personality, but I have never found a time in the last year with this song has not calmed me down or helped me deal with a situation. There is a line in the song that says “Why don’t you be you, and I’ll be me.” That just really hits me. I’ve been going through something with a friend lately and I’ve decided to break off the friendship. And I was so angry for a very long time about her, how she manipulates people, the way she treated people, how the moment she had a boyfriend she would disregard everyone until she needed something. She used to be my best friend, and now she’s just, she’s not. But I’m trying to let go of the anger I have that surrounds her. This song has helped me with that and just letting go of all my anger in general. I feel as if it addresses the fact that what’s happening isn’t fair
In most relationships sex is an essential and expected part, even for teenagers. Many teen relationships are subjected to the scrutiny of their peers on whether or not they are “getting some”. This stanza is ironic because in the beginning it says how dumb the questions about “getting some” are, yet at the end it talks about doing just that.
The topic I chose to write about wasn’t a typical topic but rather a song that goes by the name “The Phoenix”. It was written by Fall Out Boy band members Patrick Stump, Pete Wentz, Joe Trohman, and Andy Hurley. The song first appeared on US radios on July 16, 2013, though the album was released April 12 of that same year. The song being greatly inspired by Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich’s “Leningrad”. The songs’ music video is the second part of an eleven part music video series by the band. Other songs in the series include radio hit “My Song Knows What You Did in The Dark” and “Young Volcanoes”.
Tears are rolling down my face and the rest of the world is a blur around me. Waking up at 6:00 every morning to come here? Is it worth it? Hearing whispers and laughter as I walk down a hall that seems to be never ending. Yes, I have had obstacles in my life. Yes, I have been able to overcome them. I don’t know where I would be if it wasn’t for my friends and family.
Subsequently, I myself am of course judged by superficial people in this society. From elementary to the present, people have categorized me as the quiet girl. Even teachers think I’m quiet. In actuality, I am only observing what surrounds me, and thinking about my current predicaments. When I was 6 and a half my mother lost custody of me, I was put into foster care for a year. I left Euclid. My hometown where all my friends lived, all my family, I left everything behind, I moved to
One of the largest parts of my life for the past few years has been music. I has been like a home and it definitely provides a connection for me. Many of my favorite songs are relatable to me in some way. They may describe an aspect of my life, or even a specific way that I feel. Having this thing that I can relate to and actually understand is such an amazing thing.
As the power of a song resides completely in its lyrics, it is no longer surprising that music can be healing, inspiring, or even motivating. After introducing this insight to my life, it became very rare for me to listen to any Imagine Dragons’ song without it leaving an impact on my life and my perspectives. Imagine Dragons is a rock band whose music tends to address both personal and social issues. It’s Time, one of their biggest hits and most influential songs, was written by the band’s lead singer Dan Reynolds during a difficult time in his life. “ I was not very happy with who I was, I guess, and I wanted to make some changes” says the singer in an interview with Purevolume , in which he addresses It’s Time as a poem he wrote to express
For example, Smash Mouth writes,”i ain’t the sharpest tool in shed/ She was looking kind was looking kind of dumb with her finger in her thumb.”(Smash Mouth) This lyric describes the singer’s personality. He might not be the smartest person and people might judge him, but The singer is smart enough to make his own decisions. This is a great example of a hypole. Another examples of literary devices in the song is,”Fed to the rules and I hit the ground running.”(Smash Mouth) This lyric is an example of personification. It’s personification because it’s giving human traits to the rules. The lyric give detailed information about the singer listening to the rules, but people make fun of him for listening to every rule. That will not stop him for doing his best.
“It 's definitely… very anthemic.” Anderson shares with PPcorn. “It 's kind of about forgetting what 's gone on in the past, or what the hard times that you 're trying to overcome, or you have overcome, and focusing on where you want to go and how you 're going to get there.”
Is your playlist out of date? Do you need to start listening to new music? If you answered “yes” to both of these questions, continue reading. The band, Twenty One Pilots, is all the rage! They’re the biggest hit this year! They’re two guys who create amazing music. Here are some reasons why you should start listening to Twenty One Pilots.
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
September 11, 2014 my father passed away, so now not only the memory of 9/11 will be on my mind, but also the only father I have ever known. In his memory I made a slide show of his life and in the background I had the song by Tim McGraw , " Live like you was Dying"; and to this day I still can’t listen to this song to the end without thinking about him and crying. This song makes you realize life is not guaranteed but a precious gift. First I would not only tell my children that I love them but I would show them as well. My children are the best gift I’ve ever received, there is nothing that I wouldn’t do for them. Next I would pull out old pictures, videos, or anything that was sentimental to me, either good or bad they are memories
The piece of art I chose is is a song that I listened to a lot as a kid and still listen to today. The melodies and instruments transcend the lyrics. However , the lyrics hold so much more. I lived on a fire station as a kid when this song came out. Actually it was a tape in 1985. I thought because of the association with my dad being gone on fires all the time, that this song “The Working Hour,” related to him and his need to be away working on fires all the time. As an adult, I still feel those feelings as I did when I was 7 yrs old, however now I am the one working. I do the same job, and the working hour means something more to me now then it did when I was a kid waiting for my father to return from fires. This was a time when work to
