Song lyrics have set off a great generation of our leisure time than reading poetic devices, therefore song lyrics are better than poetic devices. Song lyrics have dropped numerous lines that attach to us now a days and make us listen to the line over and over unlike poetic devices. Song Lyrics have so much meaning by word choice and by relations.”Mr. Rager” by Kid Cudi, is about people fed up with society and plan on taking a journey. “Dreams” by Edgar Allen Poe, is about a man who dreams of a greater life. Mr. Rager, the song by Scott Cudi, has a better meaning than Dreaming, the poem by Edgar Allen Poe, by personification, allusion, and symbolism.
“Chemistry” is a fickle idea used by couples to determine their compatibility and their attraction for each other. American culture thrives on the idea of true love and it has an insatiable appetite to find it. Love in America is everywhere and everyone is trying to find the perfect match with “chemistry” existing between the partners. It is difficult to say whether the “chemistry” of true love actually exists or if it exists at the start of relationships and slowly fades as relationships extend, shifting from Egan’s point of view to Kipnis’ with the scientific evidence provided by Carey; however, it is clear that the ideal of love is inescapable in modern America.

Musicians have claimed song writing is their therapy. By it’s very nature, the process of song writing can be both freeing and emotionally challenging on a writer. Song “text often provides an early experience of how to symbolically represent the world, and of how we can use metaphors to understand the meaning of what is happening to us” (Baker et al. 9). Lyrics articulate the values and beliefs of people, which weave their way into the lives of others. In the midst of song writing, an important phenomenon is taking place: the writer is communicating and sharing their thoughts in an intimate way, much like how psychological counseling is seen and used today.
DeNora introduced the concept of “aesthetic reflexivity” which explains why a person values the comfort as well as love (DeNora, 1999). The song I chose, according to my own opinion brings peace and harmony and on the basis of DeNora’s concept, music is simply a referentialist tool. People constantly utilize music as one of the major means of self-expression for representing who they actually are. According to DeNora, “One of the first things music does is to help actors to shift mood or energy level…‘care of self”. Here music simply becomes self-regula...
The majority of children cannot wait to become a grown up. Too late they realize that growing older isn’t as glamourous as they thought. People are always taught to learn from our mistakes, but what if some mistakes take too long to realize? Many people learn life’s lessons too late. Children and adults are taught through fairy tales, songs, books, television shows, and movies lessons on how to live life and avoid mistakes. Songs and music are important because they connect to emotions. They project images into people’s minds through the lyrics, and the song itself can have a special meaning and emotion to different people.
Even though the speakers are identified as the authors, they can more accurately be described as characters based on themselves. We know that this type of lyric was most likely performed in front of an audience probably set to music. The public’s relationship to such work can be likened with dramatic performance of today such as a musical or a...
Next door and two flights up an unknown woman sings scales, melancholic and operatic, ghostlike, she vocalizes the sorrows that haunt me. Music has always been my salvation. A feeling rolls in, filling the empty vibration of my atmosphere. Rain, softly at first, then steadily. The universe weeps. It feels like God mocks me, showing off by crying when I can't. In retrospect, maybe he was empathizing, like a parent leading by example, gently nudging me to follow suit. But presently, I am bitter, completely incapable of seeing optimistically. Perception is inseparable from state of mind.
It is said, in Greek mythology, that humans originally consisted of four arms, four legs, and a single head made of two faces. The god Zeus feared their power. So he split them all in half, condemning them to spend their lives searching for the other half to complete them. Now, those people are called ‘soulmates’. The story that is about to be told is is about soulmates, who prove that they can prevail any obstacles love throws at them.
Assisted through the genetic nature of man and woman to reproduce, meaningful devotion to someone of the opposite sex is love in its more rewarding and challenging form. When you find the right individual, the emotions triggered can provide a reaction that can never be repeated. As in many stories of the past, such some written by Shakespeare, real love between a man and woman is able to overcome any challenge or obstacle laid before it. One of the most famous being the story of Romeo and Juliet, where family hatred could not halt the magic and desire between a man and woman who found their destiny with each other. Tragically the story ends with the irony that the pure joy of love between them never fully was achieved as death was their reward. Unfortunately, this foreshadowing is a whimsical representation of the relationships of couples today. With the ever increasing divorce rate, I see a redefining of this form of love for future generations. As the bond between man and woman is quickly eroded with minute effort, the challenge of maintaining an intimate loving relationship with a single person today is truly the most significant obstacle for society in general moving
In Coldplay’s song, “Paradise”, the songwriters use exaggerative language, personification, and rhetorical techniques to tell the story of a little girl’s escape from the harshness and disappointment of reality. The listeners of this song are treated to a beautifully written story about a girl’s maturity through the struggles and disappointment that life has offered to her. Some of the most effective ways that the songwriters explain the plight of the girl are when they attach the listener emotionally with her plight through their use of exaggerated language and personification. Ultimately, the girl copes with her situation and shows signs of maturity; which, enforces the emotional connection that the audience feels with her.
The youth of today are more likely to have a favourite song rather than a favourite poem. Although the feelings and hidden meanings expressed in songs are often unacknowledged by the listener, they often have qualities that resemble those of a typical poem. These qualities include word choice, mood, hidden meanings and imagery. Using the songs “Luka” by Suzanne Vega, and “April Come She Will” by Simon and Garfunkle, I am going to prove that songs can be considered a form of modern day poetry.
Driving home after a long, difficult day, I turned on some music, searching for relief. The CD in the player consisted of all my favorite songs: “Pee Wee Long Way( Chasing)’,” “Lil Boosie (Long Journey),”Lil snupe “(Nobody),” and many others. My number one favorite song, “(Chasing),” was the first to play. Singing along to the lyrics, my mood was immediately better. This song reminded me of what was important in my life, my dreams and money. I then realized what these songs had in common; they all reflected my feelings on life: don’t give up on your dreams and don’t worry about every little thing life throws at you, keep chasing your dream until you reach the top.
