I’m leaving it open this week. I’m going for song lyrics, but feel free to add any you like. I’ll put 2 or 3 in under 1 theme
Amazing Grace by John Newton
Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.
Chasing Pavements by Adele
What are your favorite songs to listen to? Any that really strike you as fitting this theme?
Grammys with Meaning
American Boy by Estelle and Kanye West (Rap/Sung Collaboration winner)
Take me on a trip, I’d like to go some day.
Take me to New York, I’d love to see LA.
I really want to, come pick it with you.
You’ll be my American Boy.
I am taking liberties with the meaning of this song. But do you think it’s a problem for potential immigrants to have American Boys (or girls) so they can enter the country?
Viva La Vida by Coldplay
I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning I sleep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own
What is the symbolism in this song? (Nah, just kidding. I hate symbolism with a passion.) How about: What meaning do you see in this song or stanza that relates to the United States today?
