What song do you listen to when you feel sad? Excited? Worried? Angry?
Sound Design Project/Assignment:
In your notes or on a separate sheet of paper, make a list of 5 songs that you like and that have some deeper meaning beyond the surface (the lyrics are there to make you FEEL something). Circle ONE song that you want to work with. Make sure that this song has some meaning to you.
Write out the lyrics, or find them on the internet. (Make sure to use the RADIO EDIT version!)
Underline any important stuff in the lyrics -- important phrases, words, etc.
Write down the THEME of the song.
Make a list of CHARACTERS that exist within the song.
Write a paragraph that sums up what the song is about to you.
