This song Desperado means a lot to me because it played on the album that I used to sing along in the car with my mom and sister when I was a small child. It acts as part of a symbol in the childhood that I so dearly cherish, and long to return to. The song is played on the album “Their Greatest Hits” and has a more country beat to it, which I enjoyed more, than their more rock and roll take on their music. When I sing along to this song, or any song on this album, I am taken back to the days where all the windows were down in my mom’s white minivan, blowing my blonde wispy curls in my face, and the heat of the warm sunshine on my skin. I think
This song is important to me because when I was 6 or 7 years old my mom would put on the song and I would sing along with it. When me and my mom would get in the car on long rides she would play the song and it never gets old I'm 12 right now so that has been my favorite song for 5 or 6 years. I was always eager to go places with that song. I liked it so much my mom bought me a mp3 player and she downloaded the song to it and I could listen to it wherever I go. It also uses Figurative language I did not know about for example Rhyme Loan out billion I get a trillion. Onomatopoeia Apl.de.ap.
My story has a meaningful story behind it. The story is deep for me and even for the artist and probably for many other people. Hearing songs like this can inspire you. It inspired me to be thankful for the people in my life. One day they can be here the next they could be gone. You never know what’s going on in their lives.
Their sense of belongingness gives the people pride, because the songs embody the rich history, culture, and values of Mexico. As a result, people in in Mexican communities are able to proudly identify themselves as Mexicans. With a vast amount of culturally proud people, Mexican culture will ultimately be kept alive.
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
Although our class has not covered this chapter yet, I felt it necessary to address this song as my journal topic taking into consideration everything that is going on with latest transition of power. Like the song stated at first, many human beings have to take the decision to leave their homes and cross the border into another country. Many times, they do not want to make this transition. Who in the right mind would want to leave their family not knowing the next time one would see them? The lyrics about the tears and the load an immigrant carries also are very significant in Racial & Ethnic Relations. Due to the media and the social influence, immigrants are looked upon as criminals and evil-doers. Every has this prejudice towards immigrants but they never take into account the tears. Legal citizens never see the tears or hardships that immigrants face and judge them solely on their action of crossing the border illegally. Arjona speaks a very fundamental truth in saying that the wetback carries the weight that the legal would not load. It saddens me to say this, but our society overlooks the heavy weight that these human beings, just like the rest of us, carries on their shoulders. If anything, fueled by prejudice and discrimination, they add onto their weight. Finally, in Arjona’s last verse, he is making a sincere appeal at the unjust- immigration system. One of the goals for humanity is achieving a world liberated of prejudice and discrimination. Although this hope may seem far fetched, some change can occur in diminishing the presence of prejudice within our hearts. I identified with this song not because I am an immigrant but because one of my closest friend’s parents are illegal. She tells me of the fear that she goes through knowing that they can be taken at any moment. However, my friend and I strongly believe that the greater good will
I personally like the artists Macklemore and Ryan Lewis and the songs that they create. Their songs have a way of diving into important matters that the rest of society try to avoid. I am not gay, but I had a friend that was and this song closely resembles what he went through. The song also tells the story of a gay couple and the struggles they had and not just the problems around the subject of being gay. “No one disputes that biological difference, exists between men and women. However, what we make of those differences does not inevitably arise out of the biological” (Conley 277).
I really liked this song since covers on a series of important issues (meaning of life, lack of trust in the government, racial injustices, etc.) within radio playtime and while containing to use elements of hip-hop.
My taste in music varies since I enjoy listening to music from different parts of the world as well as music eras. As I was growing up I remember listening to famous operas, classical music, danzon, tango and “folcloricos”, that my grandparents would play. On the contrary, my parents would play music from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s, and thanks to all of them I can now enjoy listening to any type of music.
Every song I’ve heard can to connected to a memory in my life. It doesn’t have to be an important memory; certain songs flash images of the radio playing while driving down highways or hearing a song playing in the background of a commercial. Others inspire memories like times I’ve danced with my family, or covered songs with friends. These are the memories I will hold on to forever, and I’ll do it through these
Music and dance are very important in the Latin community for any juncture and just for everyday life. Latin American music is played on regular radio stations for all to share. Latin American music is a very important aspect of the Latin areas. It is shared among all and it brings people closer to one another. In when other cultures listen to the music it gives a better understanding of their culture and historical background. This music keeps the people confident and encouraged. It allows the artist to express their dignity and distinctiveness in dance and music. The music allows them to feel that there are more promising things in life no matter what they may be going through. Wherever Latin American music is being played there are always laughter, fun, happiness, and enjoyment through
This part of the song depicts the struggle of sexism in the United States. This song resonated with me because of my disbelief that so many people voted for a man who was so candid about sexism, racism, and ableism.
In the poem, Elena, the author conveys the main theme using the two main protagonists. The poem shows the feelings of a mother who has lost touch with her children, since they are no longer a big cohesive family as was the case in Mexico. All her children sang and engaged in sporting activities at their leisure time. The phrase “understanding every word they’d say.” is emotional and to some extent painful since she remembers the time she spent with her children and the good moments they shared together while in Mexico before they moved to America “But that was in México”, she is disappointed that the move to America does meet her expectations and instead they are drifting further apart.
The prosperity of In Paris railway station, two strangers sat down on the same piano bench and performed a remixed masterpiece, which attracted a bunch of people and brought a great joy for them. Such various positive role that music plays exists everywhere and everytime in human beings’ life. Meanwhile, music emits its perfume as an incredible intermingling, as such, it does not only give people miscellaneous emotions but also endows us both microcosmic and macroscopic insight to observe the diverse world we live in. It is worth noting that Moises Velasquez Manoff currently states his own perspective, “The Meaning of Despacito in the Age of Trump”, of the New York Times. Mr Manoff published his opinion based on how the song “Despacito” approaches the most streamed song in history when issues of nativism and panic from both residences and non-residences are skyrocketed. More significantly, Mr Manoff notably highlights the virtue of the song, such as the song itself “binds us as a global community”, considered “Despacito” contains different races, classes even national cultures. In a nutshell, music is able to make the world better and better, insteading of barely making America white again through its capability to strengthen cohesion, ease tension, encourage spirit and build foundation of education for living creature.
“no churches in the wild” is a song made by Jay-z with Kanye west featuring in It, right from the start of the song you know that something is not right, it is not a usual hip-hop song, the more you listen to it you can pick more and more out of it for example;
