Loud music changes a person rather than soft and meaningful music. We let the type of music we listen to describe our personalities and how we feel. Throughout the poem the speaker shows how the loud music affects him and how he is depressed. Our music shows our mood and type of person we are, whether it’s country, rap, rock, hip hop, or any other type of genre. It tells people what kind of person we are before they get to know
The song has an irregular rhyme scheme but still, holds a musical effect. It doesn’t take away from the song but adds depth to it allowing you to see that what's important are the words and the meaning behind them not how pretty it would sound. The rhythm allows for the tone to shine through as with certain parts, it takes a longer time to read and the other times it is much faster. The pace changes with the moods.

Using sad music gets the person already feeling emotional and is put there purposely to do that.
The artist chooses an upbeat and happy tempo that repeats throughout the song. He chooses this repeating tempo to draw the listener’s attention to the lyrics of the song.

The second poem is “Home Burial”, by Robert Frost. The poem is about a couple, Amy and her husband, losing their son causing Amy to go through emotional turmoil. Amy is trying to avoid the situation by trying to leave, but her husband is trying to pull her back, so he can figure out what’s wrong with her and as the poem continues the drama increases. The topic of the poem is sadness, which ties into the theme of Amy and her husband’s relationship is on the rock. The theme in this poem is that everyone goes through sadness, but bottling it up doesn’t help the situation. This is due to the death of their son and as the story continues the husband is trying to understand, why Amy is acting the way she is but she receives the message as rude and offensive. Most of the tension is coming from the graveyard, which resigns on their lot that contains their relatives and son. In lines 1-2, it expresses my theme because it has both
I find it to be a very touching song. While digging deeper and attempting to better understand my associative response to this song, I discovered a belief that this song elicits these particular emotional reactions from me because I have been a sufferer of depression and suicidal thoughts in varying degrees for almost as long as I can remember. I, personally, have known that feeling of complete hopelessness. I have known the feeling of believing that I had hit absolute rock bottom where there are no silver linings, no ladders back out of the hole that has been dug, and no reason to even go on for one more day. I have also come to realize, just as the man in the song did, that it can make all the difference in the world to have someone there to talk to. I believe that there are times when the only thing needed is for someone else to point out that life hasn’t always been so bad and to emphasize that there have been good times too. If there is someone who can do that, then they may also be able to stress the belief that there could be more good times coming but the storm has to run its course before the sunlight can find its way back through to shine again.
Because the speaker is direct and clear, we are able to recognize the nostalgic tone simply because of what the speaker is explicitly telling us. However, the structure of the poem also contributes to the tone. There are no punctuations throughout the entire poem, yet we still read it slow enough to create a dramatic and sad mood. The poem is divided into fourteen couplets, each with a substantial gap between them. At the end of a couplet, we are forced to slow down and fully pause before moving on to a new section. In addition, most of the lines are complete clauses
Because the music is newer, the likelihood that more people have heard it is great and this gives them a personal connection to the drama right away. It also allows them to focus better on the story you are trying to convey without being distracted trying to hear a new song. However, both songs are beautiful and inspired by God therefore it is my belief that either one would touch the hearts of the people who listen to it, wherever and whatever the occasion might
When you listen to Erik Satie’s Gymnopedie No. 1 you are struck with a sullen, dreamy chord progression striking the root on the one of the measure and the 3rd, 5th, and 7th of the chord on the 2nd and 3nd of the measure with its waltz like ¾ timing.
Cole 2 example, a song with slow tempo and lyrics about remembering a lost loved one can emit feelings of deep sorrow or regret, which can be reflected and felt by the one singing, or even listening to, the music. On the other hand, a more joyous and fast-paced song can allow one to feel more energized and up-beat.
