"The Easy Way Out" by Emma Schwartz
“Day Tripper,” was written by Paul McCartney and John Lennon. Lennon sings the lyrics exquisitely. The vocals was sung by Lennon and McCartney. However, Lennon had the original idea for the melody after using LSD for the first time and work together with McCartney to finish it. I, for the most part, like the jingle because I think it has a catchy tune and an upbeat melody. This song gives me a feeling of buoyancy, like a trip or floating. Acid was beginning to play an active role in their music and they began to sing about the experience. Day Tripper is a jargon term for somebody who failed to entirely embrace the hippy existence, for the Beatles they involved the life but kept it concealed and only showed the well turned-out image side of themselves. This part of the song reminds me of a life filled with stress and drama. Stresses of being isolated because of the Beatle-mania fever with fans. Problems that they needed an outlet for, but yet you know they are tripping on the drugs to escape their stressful mayhem in life, they are justifying their actions. Although they see themselves as round-the-clock trippers, “fully committed drivers, she was just a day tripper.” they was someone who was committed only in part to the idea, the drugs took them on the trip to release themselves. Everyone has their own concerns in life, they want to escape from the real world, so I believe individuals relate to these lyrics. “Got a good reason, for taking the easy way out.” The minute you are in a position that you can’t control, the easy way out sounds good; at least until you know everything will work out. This track carries the feeling of fleeing actuality and then returning. “She was a day tripper, a one way ticket yeah. It took me so long to find out, and I found…...

Song of Moses

...Jessica Mejeurooo 10/12/2013 The Song of Moses The Song of Moses is a rather long poem found in chapter 32 of Deuteronomy. This poem is proposed to have been written by Moses as a witness for God against the Israelites. In the old age of Moses, just before his passing on Mount Nebo, Moses was instructed by God to write down and recite this poem to the Israelites before they entered the promise land. After Moses led the Israelites out of slavery in Egypt, they acted in a manner that was very unappealing. Not only did they complain and act completely ungrateful, many of them turned away from God to worship their own self-created idols. Moses basically had to keep snapping these people back into the correct direction and reminding them of God’s laws. When it came time for them to leave Moses behind, due to him not being allotted into the promise land, God knew that without the direction of Moses, his people would most definitely became horribly corrupt and filled with sin. Once Moses is finished writing this poem, he prepares for the people to hear his voice. He says “Gather unto me all the Elders of your tribes, and your officers, that I may speak these words in their ears, and call heaven and earth to record against them. For I know that after my death ye will utterly corrupt yourselves, and turn aside from the way which I have commanded you; and evil will befall you in the latter days; because ye will do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger......

...smile. I've watched you sleeping for a while. I'd be the father of your child. I'd spend a lifetime with you. I know your fears and you know mine. We've had our doubts but now we're fine, And I love you, I swear that's true. I cannot live without you. Goodbye my lover. Goodbye my friend. You have been the one. You have been the one for me. And I still hold your hand in mine. In mine when I'm asleep. And I will bare my soul in time, when I'm kneeling at your feet. Goodbye my lover. Goodbye my friend. You have been the one. You have been the one for me. I'm so hollow, baby, I'm so hollow. I'm so, I'm so, I'm so hollow. I'm so hollow, baby, I'm so hollow. I'm so, I'm so, I’m so hollow STORY BEYOND THE SONG I read the song as the goodbye of a man to his girlfriend and to his best friend since he’s not alive anymore.

Song of Solomon

...Notes on Song of Solomon 2 0 1 4 E d i t i o n Dr. Thomas L. Constable Introduction TITLE In the Hebrew Bible the title of this book is "The Song of Songs." It comes from 1:1. The Septuagint and Vulgate translators adopted this title. The Latin word for song is canticum from which we get the word Canticles, another title for this book. Some English translations have kept the title "Song of Songs" (e.g., NIV, TNIV), but many have changed it to "Song of Solomon" based on 1:1 (e.g., NASB, AV, RSV, NKJV). WRITER AND DATE Many references to Solomon throughout the book confirm the claim of 1:1 that Solomon wrote this book (cf. 1:4-5, 12; 3:7, 9, 11; 6:12; 7:5; 8:11-12; 1 Kings 4:33). He reigned between 971 and 931 B.C. Richard Hess believed the writer is unknown and could have been anyone, even a woman, and that the female heroine viewed and described her lover as a king: as a Solomon.1 How could Solomon, who had 700 wives and 300 concubines (1 Kings 11:3), be the same faithful lover this book presents? He could be if he became polygamous after the events in this book took place. That seems a more likely explanation than that he was polygamous when these events occurred and just omitted reference to his other loves. Probably he wrote the book before he became polygamous. We do not know how old Solomon was when he married the second time. The history recorded in Kings and Chronicles is not in strict chronological order. The Shulammite was probably not Pharaoh's daughter in......

Song

...The song Temporary Home was featured on Carrie Underwood’s hit album Play On that was released in October of 2009. This song had no impact on me at all until March of 2010. One of my dearest friends, Breanna Nicole Barber, was in a motorcycle dirt bike accident. She fell off of the bike hitting her head causing major brain damage. She was a vegetable and was taken off of life support. Her funeral was several days later and it was really the most unbelievable thing that has ever happened to me. They played Temporary Home at her funeral. I knew what a temporary home meant to me. It meant that one day I’d be at my final destination and that would be heaven. In these next few paragraphs I will reinforce the word ‘temporary’. I’ll describe to you my idea of why Carrie Underwood addresses 3 different stages of life. The word ‘temporary’ is specifically reinforced numerous times throughout the song. Carrie uses phrases like, “house that will never be a home”, “nowhere to go”, “passing through”, and “just a stop”. We have a clear understanding of most of these things and that they intend on being for a short period of time. [What about these words/phrases?] Carrie introduces three different stages of life throughout the song. First she mentions a little boy who is in foster care that keeps getting moved and placed in homes that feel unwelcoming to him. Then she mentions a single mom that needs help, has a baby, and practically has nothing. Lastly she mentions an......

Song of Songs

...Song of Songs Rabbi Aqiba once said that “For in all the world there is nothing to equal the day on which the Song of Songs was given to Israel, for all the writings are Holy, but the Song of Songs is the Holy of Holies.” (Davidson) This statement is made in regards to whether or not the book “Song of Songs” is to be included in the canon on the Bible. This book is a collection of songs and love poetry between two lovers. This book can be considered as an allegory of human sexuality, or divine love. However, there is no direct mention of the Divine Presence anywhere within the book. Even the Jewish Rabbis with the most understanding of biblical concepts regarding sexuality have trouble agreeing that a book of seemingly secular love poetry should be included in the sacred canon.(Davidson) When Aqiba said the Song of Songs was the Holy of Holies, he probably intended that to mean that the Song was detailed symbolism of the historical relationship between Yahweh (the Divine Presence) and the people of Israel from the Exodus to the coming of the Messiah.(Davidson) During the time, sexual feelings were considered pagan and evil. Some Christian allegorists believe that the author (or authors) of the songs wrote in a way that disguised sexual expressing as a yearning for God. Most scholars believe that the authors purposely wrote about yearning for God in an incredibly sexual way to further imply the strong emotions behind said yearning. These songs are regardless a type of......

The Anatomy of a Song

... as I feel it helps me to prepare for the day that waits. I think it is like the memoirs to my life as it has been there throughout everything with me. When I was younger, I didn’t have the great love for musical as I do now. I mainly listened to whatever was playing in the background or what my parents were listening to. I didn’t have much of a care for musical compositions. There was sometimes a little bit of pop music thrown in to the mix here and there, but that’s really all I liked back then. Whether I was in the car, the house, or anywhere else there was sure to be some Beatles, Buddy Holly, or the Dubliners constantly playing somewhere in the background. At the time I didn’t care for that genre of music much, but now as I’m older, I enjoy it as it allows me to reminisce on memories from times of my childhood. Once I hit my teenage years music became my life and gradually started to inhibit my soul. I believe music has the ability to convey all sorts of emotion. Whether the emotion is joy and happiness or sadness and despair through rhythms, harmonies and the lyrics music shows it. The song “A little bit longer” by Nick Jonas is such an emotional and inspiring song that when I hear it, I always come close to tears, especially when I watch it being played live. The effect that music can have on our emotions is tremendous, as it can bring people to floods of tears or bursts of laughter. The musical images that music and song are able to create are amazing. Music has......

The Song

...The song "where Is the Love?" written by will.i.am, Taboo, apl.de.ap, with help of others such as Ron Fair, and recorded by the American hip-hop group The Black Eyed Peas. In this song, The Black Eyed Peas lament on various issues in the World, such as terrorism, racism, hypocrisy about the U.S. government, war, pollution, intolerance, and greed. I choose this song because as I was watching this music video, I thought that there are lots of worldwide issues that make our world disharmony and difficulty. I think the video describes nowadays world. Today the world is corrupted and vicious. There is at least a hundred murder cases in a day, happenings dealing with terrors and discrimination occur all around the world almost every second. It is easier to find hypocrisy and racism than peace and love. Furthermore, media and government highly influence people. For example, in the music video, children are playing violent games likely to act what they see in the media. Also, false information from media and government give negative images. I believe the mostly impacted for all corruptions of the world is our children, the next generation. In my opinion, people should be honest and try to make our world peaceful and lovable for our future generations. This is my interpretations of the first verse of lyrics. The question mark that appears in the intro of the song represents “Where is the love?” in the world. The first and second line of the first verse ‘What's wrong with......

...The song I choose to do was “ Runaway Love” by Ludacris ft. Mary J. Blige. The song focuses on three different scenarios dealing with young girls from the ages of 9-11. For the first scenario it focuses on a nine year old whose mother had many different men in her life. Throughout the men who go in and out of her mother life they are sexually abusing her. She tells her mother what is happening, but her mother does not believe her. The second scenario is about an eleven year old who is being beat by her alcoholic father and only had one friend who understands her. Walking home from school one day the friend is shot by a drive by bullet. Now she is left alone because that’s was the only person she had. On the last scenario an eleven year old is doing drugs and being sexually active with males that are older. She knows if her mom finds out she will go crazy. The sum of the three stories are these young girls are going through situation where they wish they could runaway and just forget everything that has happened. The race that the song is mainly directed towards all nationalities because these things can happen to anyone. Accent- slang speaking in a way that a more African American audience would understand Gender- targeted to mainly females Class- lower class which is the poor because all the situation the parents were struggling financially or had some type of situation...

...Limp Bizkit's jam! Limp Bizkit played their best hits as well as the songs from the early career. Rap-metal charge of Limp Bizkit reacted with the energy of the crowd, and detonated with the two-hour blast. The sound of band’s live performance was worth of praise. It was as close as possible to the studio recordings. The volume was arranged perfectly, therefore, it was easy to hear every beat from any corner of the auditorium. There was no headache and temporary deafness as sometimes happens after the performance of rock bands. Each member of the band was worth of compliments and endless praise. There was no doubt about the mastery of Limp Bizkit. This band has gone through thousands of shows during 20 years of their career and they know exactly how to interact with the audience. The energy was oozing through the artists allowing fans to get rid of all negativity and enjoy the good vibes the band was sending. The guitarist, Wes Borland, expressed himself through the air tearing guitar riffs and expressive gestures, giving the audience an example of how to behave on the Limp Bizkit's shows. Sam Rivers tormented his LED bass. After the concert, the fans referred to John Otto as “the god of thunder” because of his flawless drum performance. Fred Durst showed himself as first-class front man who is able to stir up the crowd with one word or one shout. A roll call with the audience during the song “Livin 'It Up” (It'll eat a hole - what?

The Writing of the Long Song

...The writing of The Long Song - by Andrea Levy The writing of The Long Song is a long story that begins with a single question from a single girl: “How can I be proud of my Jamaican roots, when my ancestors had been slaves?” This question is the British-Jamaican novelist Andrea Levy, got from a young woman at a conference in London. It was a question that gave Levy the challenge, or idea, of her new novel, The Long Song, in which she tries to persuade the readers to be proud of their slave ancestry instead of feeling shame for coming from a lower-class family, which she could not understand. Levy expressedly states how proud she herself is of her Jamaican heritage, “If our ancestors survived the slave ships they were strong. If they survived the plantations they were clever.” (p. 7, l. 16-19). This was something she had learnt from a Jamaican acquaintance of hers. In “The Writing of The Long Song” Andrea Levy expounds her thoughts, ideas and deliberations she made during the writing of her novel. In this she explains the transatlantic slave trade into the bargain. Even though Levy herself is honoured about her heritage she can relate to the young girls hesitations as Levy’s own parents were at pains to distance themselves from any aspect of their slave descent: “My mum would sooner say her family were slave owners than that they were once slaves.” (p. 8, l. 96-98). During the making of the novel, Levy ran into some difficulties as she could only find very few......

The Writing of the Long Song

...The writing of the long song “How can I be proud of my Jamaican roots, when my ancestors had been slaves”? This question asked by a woman with Jamaican roots followed British novelist Andrea Levy for a long time. She wondered how anyone could be ashamed of his or her legacy and thus the foundation of her book, The Long Song, was laid. However, writing the book was a more difficult task than presumed. Levy considered many things at the preliminary stage of the book as she knew that she didn’t want to write yet another historical novel about slavery. This is the reason why she chose to write the “behind the scenes”-essay, The Writing of The Long Song. Herein she elaborates and discusses the process of writing her book and raises important questions that deal with extremely relevant themes such as family pride and the filtering of history. Levy opens her essay with a flashback to the conference she attended several years earlier in London where the main theme was the legacy of slavery. She remembers a woman asking the panel how she could be proud of her Jamaican roots when her ancestors had been slaves (p. 7, ll. 5-7). Levy doesn’t remember the panel’s answer to the woman but the question stayed with her for a long time and it ended up being her motivation for writing the book The Long Song. Levy is of Jamaican heritage herself and in contrary to the young woman, she proudly acknowledges her slave ancestry: “If our ancestors survived the slave ships they were strong. If......
