Music is an art. It is combined in a way to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expressing of emotion; the lyrics help you connect and cope with certain situations you’re experiencing. I chose to analyze the country song, “Good In Goodbye” by Carrie Underwood. Carrie Underwood wrote this song for a past love whom she sees years later outside a restaurant they used to go to and recalls the good in her heartache and pain. This song is very close to my heart, it helped me when I was going through a heartbreak. I now realize why this song’s meaning is worth knowing. Country music’s atmosphere is mostly nostalgic and it always has a great message or a life lesson behind it.
Throughout the song, Joyner plays faint hints of baby whines and laughs in the background to emphasizes the tone. The beat of the song has an underlying voice of a female singing, “Trapped in my mind, I want you right by me… by me… Forever” (Lucas, Joyner. “Forever.” By Joyner Lucas. (508)-507-2209. Atlantic Records, 2017. Apple Music. 0-81). This underlying singing along with the hint of baby voices thought establishes the mood for the listener. Embedding into the listener an emotion of love and comfort for their loved ones and especially their children if they have any. The way the female voice and baby clashes
One of the most important lines from the song is, “I can’t change, even if I tired, even if I wanted to”. It is a meaningful
I chose this song because, in my opinion, it has a good thesis that backs up the song lyrics and it gives you a positive feeling. Basically, the song is telling us to always keep our faith and stay strong no matter what. It encourages people to
In alternative pop music, numerous people would mistake the song’s rhythm as a light and calming love song rather than recognizing the lyrics as meaningful. Although Hozier’s song seems to be a simple love song, it has a deeper meaning that encourages the listeners to think about relationships. The first part of the first stanza illustrates how the rhythm and the lyrics do not correspond with each other. Throughout Hozier’s song the rhythm is consistent, besides in the first stanza. The first part of the stanza is,
George Straits daughter was killed in a car crash in 1986 when she was just 13. When most people see this song they immediately think that it is a love song and in a way, it is, but I think that this could maybe not be a song addressed to a significant other but rather to his daughter. This could be a possibility in his intention for this song. Yes, the song may sound worldly when he is telling her how to get to him, but when he tells her “cut a path across the blue skies, straight in a straight line you can’t get here fast enough.” Maybe he is trying to talk to his daughter again and wants her to seemingly fly down from heaven to him so he can see her once more. This would also explain why he misses her so much, maybe it’s his little girl who died who he is writing to. In many of his other songs George talks about Dallas and always sings about Dallas, perhaps in this song when he talks about her leaving Dallas to return to him he is thinking of Dallas as his form of heaven. So, he is begging his daughter to come from Dallas which is his representation of heaven, to come back to him if at all possible. This is the only variation I can think of for the lyrics: instead of the thought of it being toward his wife or lover it may be for his daughter who passed away in a car
Ross instantly sung the exact words to the song, almost identical to the singer's. "Not to hard to see that a Cali girl is what I need." A tint of pink flowered my cheeks. He's not singing about you or to you, he's singing at you prove a point. I shook myself out of it.
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
The artist wants the audience to feel his substantial affection for Delilah, and how it is unchanging even though they are separated by distance. He appeals to the audience’s emotions of admiration, compassion, and longing for another person. The artist does this by singing about his extensive love for Delilah, which may lead people to think of someone they themselves care deeply about, or an example of love in their life.
In the third stanza, the speaker is brought back to reality. He's still drawn to the scene, evidenced by the way he notes the quietness of the country after hearing the harness bells shake. Although he's considered the needs of his horse to take journey towards home, he can't easily draw himself away from the beauty of the
Furthermore, allusions of the man's excruciating love and commiseration are dotted throughout the song, the puerile gentleman declaring "Oh, oh, keep you like an oath/May nothing but death do us apart."
The vocal and harmony in the song sounded both familiar and fresh, with a hint of rock embedded in the overall country-rock style. It was a song that instantly became a favorite of mine once I heard it. I was resonated by this song, even though I could not tell my exactly feeling at that time, and I did not know it was Need You Now by Lady Antebellum until I searched the lyrics afterwards. One might be dumbfounded by how such an American country band could resonate a high school student in the other hemisphere, but it was a true manifestation of how Lady Antebellum could captivate listeners, regardless of their background and familiarity with music. In this paper, I shall analyze how Lady Antebellum have been an influential and unique country music group, with references to their musical influences and how they have
George Strait, the king of country music, opened the largest concert in North American history by singing a tribute to our fundamental view of love. The song introduces this story of a young girl, who radically changes a young boy’s world by her love. The opening verse introduces
In both songs, the repetition of the lyrics draws the listener’s attention to particular words 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.
