Your first thought is the love between the couple is toxic and lethal yet, he cannot resist his partner. But, really it is a reference to Cocaine. Cocaine is given a female voice. He uses personification by bringing the drug to life, where it can communicate with him and become part of his life. He knows that this “girl” meaning, Cocaine is going to be the death of him. While in use of Cocaine he gets numb. “But at least we’ll both be beautiful and stay forever young/ This I know, (yeah) this I know” (3-4). You say again, that he is singing about how the love is so very satisfying. But he is actually meaning that his desire for this young and beautiful woman makes him feel good. He feels as if he is invincible when he has her. Even though he seems to be aware of the consequences that come with feeling young and beautiful; with the use of Cocaine. “She told me, ‘Don’t worry about it.’/ She told me, ‘Don’t worry no more.’/ We both knew we can’t go without it/ She told me you’ll
This song relates to Jay Gatsby and Wes Moore. Gatsby longs for Daisy and wants them to run away together. Nick tries to explain to Gatsby that you can't always get what you want but Gatsby won't believe it. Wes Moore also realizes that you don't always get what you want when he is sent to jail after being accused of murder.
Romanticism was the era of passion and feelings, and not just music for the sake of it. Music in the romantic era had a poetic and philosophical meaning. In the lyrics, the composer has tried to convey a story about a boy making sense of a satisfying yet confusing relationship with a rich girl. Simon sings with a passionate yet calm tone in his voice. This portrays the soft and rather philosophical story about money and love the lyrics try to convey. Romanticism has influenced the song since the delivery of Simon’s voice with the blending of the instrumentation support each other in the composer's message. This allows the message to be portrayed in more than one way. However, the biggest influence on this piece is not from romantic music, but from folk music.
Or perhaps the real artist, Taylor Swift’s purpose is to show the audience how ridiculous is the media image that has been created on her. It is a warning for both boys and girls, primarily those who are hoping to attract love from boys that love is perpetuated by its tortuousness. It is painful if boys will lose interest, that is Swift’s warning. The song revolves around a message for girls: do not be a daydream dressed like a daydream; do not be a nightmare dressed like a nightmare; do not find out what kind of a girl he wants and be like that forever, do not be heaven, do not be nice, do not be magic, never be too plain or perfect and good. You can also add torture to love and bring darkness to light, it is all about the
The opening lines of the poem show how strong her feelings are for her husband. Bradstreet shows this by the use of a great example of a paradox, “if two were one, then surely we.” This shows that the magnitude of her love and affection is so deep that she’s comparing two beings as one. She praises her love for her husband so much
Prince Royce is mainly trying to say that people should not judge or be judged by their physical appearance but by what they have and feel in their hearts. This song is trying to capture women who think they are not good enough. They think of themselves as something lower and have difficult time to see themselves but rather see what they don’t have. They feel not beautiful and have low self esteem. He also tells that he also is not perfect and that love never see faces but hearts.
I really loved the idea of finding a song about Gatsby, because he is the main character and his life is so interesting. This song really represents what Gatsby is thinking about how he feels. In the song it says “You held me close against your heart” then it goes on to say “Then one day he took you away”. This explains to us what Gatsby feels about Daisy all his life then someone (Tom) took her away. It says, “My life has crumbled since you’ve gone, somehow I must carry on.” This is like Gatsby not knowing how to live life without Daisy and he does not know how to start life again without her. In this quote, it explains how much Gatsby truly wants Daisy but he knows he cannot meet her expectations (money). “Gatsby chased the future. He wanted
The song I have constructed has several morals and important messages in it. It basically describes the plot and storyline of the Hobbit, and then extracts important messages in the book and relates it to the real world. The plot it is describing is that Bilbo Baggins, a young hobbit who is satisfied in his hobbit hole, but expands his mind by getting inspired by Gandalf to go on an adventure. Bilbo experiences many challenges but his final encounter against Smaug describes how the plot forms. With the encounter of Smaug, all of the group's plans escalate and when the dragon attacks the Lake Town and destroys it. This Allows the character Bard to redeem himself showing another moral. It is never too late to ask for forgiveness. With that plot
The theme of the song is rather interesting and I have heard many different theories about the meaning when discussing it with peers over the years. One of the thoughts is
Mattie’s red scarf and red ribbon - the color of the scarf and ribbon represent blood, ruddiness, good health, and vitality, all of which Mattie has in abundance, and all of which Zeena lacks. The color red stands out in the white landscape of Starkfield, just as Mattie stands out in Ethan’s life. Red is also the color of transgression and sin - the trademark color of the devil -especially in New England, where in Puritan times adulterers were forced to wear red A’s on their clothes.
In this song, there were many events that were mentioned, connecting to the American Revolution. For example, the song refers to how the Thirteen Colonies’ had spies to gather information about Great Britain's plans and attacks. In “The Battle of Yorktown,” the tone was very upbeat and energetic. The colonists that were fighting seemed optimistic, eager, and hopeful. For instance, Hamilton already starts out eager in the beginning of the song, but then when he realizes his wife, Eliza is expecting him, he tries even harder. He gets his crew energetic and optimistic about their chance of winning. Evidently, you can see that that the song was upbeat and energetic. Inside this song, you can see some figurative language that was incorporated into the verses. In particular, when the ensemble is stating this stanza, “Hey yo, I’m just like my country, I’m young, scrappy, and hungry. You can see that they are incorporating a simile into the stanza. This line is saying that Hamilton is just like his country.
This song depicts the events that unfold between Hester and the rest of the town. The lines “I know you've got the anger of a burning sun, Say hold up just a minute, don't burn me down” show her struggle in pleading with the panel at the beginning of the book, and further in the story to continue proving she deserves redemption. Specifically, Hester understands why the people have turned against her. The anger comes from Hester betraying God, and in doing so potentially bringing wrath upon the rest of them. Yet, she begs for mercy (not to be burned down.) Then we move into the lines “If you burn me down you'll never find your way, If you burn me down, it's true, a little drop of dreams.” The first part of that could be Hester telling the people that others could lose their way without her as an example of sin. The dreams could be referencing Pearl and all of the hopes placed upon her from birth to remind Hester of her sin and to grow up as a child of the Lord.
look and point at gay couples, it is human nature to feel singled out and targeted. This song states that We are beautiful no matter what they say/ Yes, words can't bring us down, oh no. It is trying to help the stereotypes understand that being beautiful is more than the image, it is the inner beauty. Gay people may become ashamed of there orientation because the socially acceptable way to be is straight. This is a double standard of the lyrics, because it states that even if people do act in rude and unkind manners, the gay people will still consider themselves beautiful. But this
Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey is frequently described as a novel about reading—reading novels and reading people—while Pride and Prejudice is said to be a story about love, about two people overcoming their own pride and prejudices to realize their feelings for each other. If Pride and Prejudice is indeed about how two stubborn youth have misjudged each other, then why is it that this novel is so infrequently viewed to be connected to Austen’s original novel about misjudgment and reading one’s fellows, Northanger Abbey? As one of Austen’s first novels, Northanger Abbey is often viewed as a “prototype” to her later novels, but it is most often compared to Persuasion (Brown 50). However, if read discerningly, one can see in Pride and
Analyzing the word, "beautiful" in this stanza, one should perceive that she is not actually singing about the outside of her, but what she consists of emotionally and mentally on the inside. She reveals that her thoughts and emotions are of worth and value and they are of her opinion. They are consumed through her, and no one else and if anyone disagrees, she does not take that into affect. Her diction is actually pretty precise. To quote a famous cliché, beauty is not skin deep. She explains that the beauty is the sentiment.
