    Light Vs Darkness

    1036 words - 5 pages

    “It’s better to burn out than to fade away.” (Cross, 309) Kurt Cobain said this in his last moments of life to his wife Courtney Love. To Love this statement means that he had decided to break up his famous band, Nirvana. However, as we find out, it is a foreshadowing for suicide. The essence of Kurt Cobain can not be combined into a single word, sentence, or even a paragraph. Instead, the general essence of Cobain’s life is a myriad of contradictions. The quote shows just this. Cobain hides his feelings well from the world around him. While everybody, including his wife Courtney, thinks

    Much Ado About Nothing boasts a wide range of variation among its character relationships and emphasizes the differences and similarities between types of love. As a reader, it is natural to filter the main differences out in one’s brain and classify each character’s relationships and feelings on certain levels. Shakespeare develops definite pieces that register to the subconscious and help the reader combine personal experience, opinion and description into a clear idea of each character’s love and reaction. Kenneth Branagh, in the 1993 film version of Much Ado about Nothing seems to flatten

Hence the need to discuss how some musical structures can act as signifiers and how we identify them. From this followed the development of a sign typology of music that identifies four major different types of musical signs: 1) Anaphones

    The Beatles were clever and abnormally demanding in the ways they shaped and elaborated their musical ideas. Each Beatle had a different personal style; Paul McCartney, having a natural melodic temperament voiced his romantic- sentimental confidence in a wide range of tunes that were capable of being sung or whistled without musical support (Studwell & Lonergan). His harmonic designs were the most stylish in the Beatles’ repertoire, often demonstrating classical grace and formal composure. John Lennon on the other hand preferred lines close to the narrow span of speech-inflections, depended on

Though technically they were Mods and musically self-proclaimed "Maximum R&B," the Who were also the godfathers of punk, the pioneers of rock opera, and among the first rock groups to integrate (rather than merely fiddle with) synthesizers. The smashed guitars and overturned (or blown up) drum kits they left in their wake fittingly symbolized the violent passions of a band whose distinctive sound was born of the couplings and collisions among Pete Townshend's a

    Radio War Explication

    “Radio War” is a poem/story-song written by Sam Beam about a woman whose lover has gone to war. It uses heavily metaphorical lyrics and imagery to describe her reaction to his being gone, and the war’s effect on her life. For the most part, the song is strophic, and follows an “AABB” rhyme pattern, with the exception of the third verse. The first line of “Radio War” asks the beginning of a question. “Did the wine make her dream,” indicates that an unidentified “her” is dreaming because of the wine, that is, she got drunk to the point of sleeping.
