“That Don’t Sound Like You” is written by Rhett Akins, Ashley Gorley and Lee Brice, who is also the performer. This song was written and recorded in 2014 and released in 2015. Throughout grade school, Lee Brice was very close friends with a female classmate. After graduating they parted ways. Brice and his friend ended up meeting again one day and everything was different. A girl who once was a southern bell was transformed to a dull, lifeless person. She had met someone who changed her into a completely different person. Brice’s intended audience seem to be the girl first and foremost, but also young and older adults, those who have been through similar experiences. This twangy, casual country song is told with a forthright tone.

February 9th, 1964: The Beatles took the world by storm by making their debut on “The Ed Sullivan Show”. The popular rock group included John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. They’ve changed the world with their music and became the best selling band in history. The Beatles are one of the most influential music groups impacting the world in more ways than one.
The stringed instruments were the accompaniment; therefor, they began with harmonics, chromatics, and tremolo for various measures rather than having a moving part. The melody was given to the flutes and soloist, Sami Junnonen, who was also very talented. The song was about 22 minutes long and he had the whole piece memorized. It sounded very sad, but soothing simultaneously. There were visuals around the theater, which made it easier to understand and visualize what Lopez was trying to describe when writing the song. The sorrow of the princess was definitely felt by the audience and it was heard throughout the piece. Since the piece was intended to be sad, it remained in a minor key for the most part. I did notice that as the intensity of the song (when the princess’ father send soldiers to capture the two lovers) was shown by using louder dynamics such as fortissimo (ff) rather than piano (p) or pianissimo (pp). Lopez also included more use of the percussion and brass instruments such as the tuba, trombone, trumpet and horn making the suspense grow. The upper stringed instruments complimented the flute very nicely since they both have that soothing sound. This piece consisted of two different movements. The second part of it was a lot more allegro, upbeat, and energized. It symbolized the eternal love that no one, not even a powerful king, could take away. The whole orchestra had more active roles and a polyphonic texture. Together they made a beautiful
When I first listened to this song, I felt that it was a song of majestic significance. The sound of “Aint no mountain high enough” made me feel happy as a listener, its uptempo beat and pleasing rhythm allowed me to feel a sense of hope. After researching this song in depth, and diving into its historical context, I have not changed my reaction to the song. Seen as one of the most powerful and beautiful musical compositions of our generation, the Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell duet encompasses numerous western originating genres, such as soul, pop and rhythm and blues (R&B). This songs instrumentation includes bells, the tambourine, the snare and the bass guitar. The snare and the tambourine are the principal features that promote a controlled and consistent rhythm
An important aspect of both music and communication is making your thoughts relatable. Making something relatable will allow your audience to connect and care about it more knowing that they have felt similar things. Everyone has regrets and think about the past, lost loves, and reminisce about the good ole days of our past. Nostalgia is a powerful tool utilized by artist typically to provide listeners with memories and allow them to empathize with the work. This song makes me reflect on a time where I once made a mistake with someone I was romantically interested. Just like McCartney sings about, the once seemingly untroubled relationship disappeared, so quickly in fact it seemed like only yesterday things had been more than
Love. A singular feeling I have when I look at him. My Mr. Hooper, I am ecstatic that I get to marry the love of my life, MY Reverend. When I am with him, I feel as if I am on top of a cloud floating above reality. It is a feeling unlike any other. It has the perks of being happy, that feeling in your gut from guilt, and it settles your brain like peace does. Two weeks too this day I will officially be married to my best friend and will become Mrs. Hooper.
I Dreamed a Dream is a soliloquy piece, sung by Fantine during act one of Les Misérables (1980). Fantine has just been fired from her factory job after it is discovered that she has an illegitimate child and takes to selling herself on the streets to pay for medicine for her daughter.

Throughout the song an anguished, during and impoverished Fantine reminisces on happier days and descends back to the harsh reality that is her hopeless life.
In the song, “Whiskey Lullaby,” written by Jon Randall and Bill Anderson and sung by Brad Paisley and Alison Krauss, the message being sent is that love so strong can be ruined with just one mistake that could lead to worst outcomes. Told in second point-of-view, the author supports this theme by describing the setting of a gloomy country home establishing the major conflict of love and death and incorporating the use of irony, tone shifts, imagery, and word choices. Paisley’s purpose is to imply that love can become something putrid and could end up hurting loved ones very deeply. This song creates a mood of sadness and mournfulness for an audience that have experience this type of situation being described in the song.
“In a country in which popular culture is extremely important, there’s nobody more important than The Beatles.” Steven Stark, a friend of The Beatles once said. The Beatles are not only the biggest band of their time, they are one of the biggest bands of all times. The Beatles did not just sing to sing, they sang to give hope to a generation, they set some of the highest standards in popular culture, they changed music forever, and they still manage to affect our generation today.

One of the most talented and the most popular singers of the modern time is considered to be Adele. For me, she is not only a popular singer but an icon and the great performer of moving and even heartbreaking songs. After I have accidentally heard her song on the radio for the first time, there was no one better for me in terms of singing. In her songs, I felt everything, including pain and joy, drive and hope. However, the most important characteristic of her songs is the soul that is felt in every particular case. The three of my favorite songs are “Rolling in the deep”, “Hello”, and “Skyfall”. Adele’s impressive voice, her skill of using it, and her determination to sing with all heart have definitely brought her numerous fans.
