The song that I chose was “Unwritten” by Natasha Bedingfield. It was released in 2004, and was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. It also hit number five on the Billboard Hot 100. Natasha Bedingfield has another popular song “Pocketful of Sunshine” and was really only popular in 2004-2006. You can find her songs on multiple 00’s playlists. I chose this song because I have listened to it since I was a child. I remember hearing it played on the radio frequently while I was in elementary school. Also, someone sung it in the talent show while I was in second grade. I love the message it has, especially when she says, “Feel the rain on your skin no one else can feel it for you.” This song is about being yourself and experiencing life and adventures for yourself because no one else can do it for you and I think that message is important.

She breaks free from the ways of society and experiences life differently from other people. Another way it is transcendental is it talks about self-reliance. Natasha sings, “only you can let it in,” and I think this means we have live our lives on your own. This lyric could also
