Song: Send me an angel by Real Life, Gary Numan. The song below remind of my family.




Send me an angel (Repetition)
Send me an angel (Repetition)
Right now, right now

Send me an angel
Send me an angel
Right now, right now

Do you believe in Heaven above?
Do you believe in love? (Rhetorical Question)
Don't tell a lie, don't be false or untrue
It all comes back to you

Open fire, on my burning heart (Figurative Language)
I've never been lucky in love
My defenses are down
A kiss or a frown (Metaphor)
I can't survive on my own

If a girl walks in and draws her name in my heart
I'll turn and run away
Everyday we've all been led astray
It's hard to be lucky in love

It gets in your eyes, it's making you cry
Don't know what to do, don't know what to do
You're looking for love
Calling Heaven above

Send me an angel
Send me an angel
Right now, right now

Send me an angel
Send me an angel
Right now, right now

Empty dreams can only disappoint
In a room behind your smile
But don't give up, don't give up
(Give up, give up, give up)
You can be lucky in love

It gets in your eyes, its making you cry
Don't know what to do, don't know what to do
You're looking for love
Calling heaven above

Send me an angel
Send me an angel
Right now, right now………… (5)

Right now


TONE:Angry

MOOD:Encouraging

THEME: Never give up

This song Send me an angel, reminds me of the movement when my mom got killed in a car accident and my family said they don't want me and my brother. They said we are a burden. But the really reason was they wanted our propriety. Then I use to imaginations that my mom went to god house. So she will send angel from the God house to help us and those angels will fix everything. Then the day came when I realize, that when you die you don't really go to a God house and there aren't really angels. So no one is coming to help me or fix things for me. I have to help myself and do my things and fix everything for myself

EVENT # 4: work

Song : Money, money, money by Abba. The below song remind me of my work


I work all night, I work all day (Literal Language)
To pay the bills I have to pay, ain't it sad
And still there never seems to be
A single penny left for me, that's too bad

In my dreams, I have a plan
If I got me a wealthy man (Figurative Language)
I wouldn't have to work at all
I'd fool around and have a ball

Money, money, money (Repetition)
Must be funny in the rich man's world
Money, money, money
Always sunny in the rich man's world (Stereotype)

All the things I could do
If I had a little money, it's a rich man's world (Alliteration)
It's a rich man's world

A man like that is hard to find
But I can't get him off my mind, ain't it sad
And if he happens to be free
I bet he wouldn't fancy me, that's too bad

So I must leave, I'll have to go
To Las Vegas or Monaco
And win a fortune in a game
My life will never be the same

Money, money, money
Must be funny in the rich man's world
Money, money, money
Always sunny in the rich man's world

All the things I could do
If I had a little money, it's a rich man's world

Money, money, money
Must be funny in the rich man's world
Money, money, money
Always sunny in the rich man's world

All the things I could do
If I had a little money, it's a rich man's world
It's a rich man's world



TONE:

MOOD:

THEME: In todays world, if you have money you can buy or whatever you want.



The song “money money money” reminds me of my work. Since I’m not working, everything seems expensive. When I use to work, it’s easy to buy whatever I needed. But not I have to think before buy anything. Whenever I listen to this song, I think of my paycheck. People ask me do I miss work, my answer is always “no”, the only thing I miss about work is paychecks. While I was working I didn't really give much importance to money in life, and didn’t really think that in today’s world money has become very importance of human life until couple months. I had realize money had become everything is this world. You have money people will give you importance but if don’t have money no one will look at you. Its hurts but it is the true.

Abba - Money, Money, Money

EVENT # 5: MAKING FRIENDS

The song below “I’ll be there for you” by Rembrandts reminds me the movement when I made new friends in Canada

So no one told you life was gonna be this way
Your job's a joke, you're broke, your love life's D O A (Rhyme)
It's like you're always stuck in second gear
When it hasn't been your day, your week
Your month or even your year but

I'll be there for you (Repetition)
(When the rain starts to pour)
I'll be there for you (Repetition)
(Like I've been there before) (Symbol ; symbol of best friendship)
I'll be there for you (Repetition)
('Cause you're there for me too)

You're still in bed at ten and work began at eight
You've burned your breakfast so far things are going great (Literal Language)
Your mother warned you there'd be days like these
But she didn't tell you when the world
Has brought you down to your knees that

I'll be there for you
(When the rain starts to pour)
I'll be there for you
(Like I've been there before)
I'll be there for you
('Cause you're there for me too)

No one could ever know me, no one could ever see me (Figurative Language)
Since you're the only one who knows what it's like to be me
Someone to face the day with, make it through all the rest with
Someone I'll always laugh with
Even at my worst, I'm best with you, yeah

It's like you're always stuck in second gear
When it hasn't been your day, your week
Your month, or even your year

I'll be there for you
(When the rain starts to pour)
I'll be there for you
(Like I've been there before)
I'll be there for you
('Cause you're there for me too)

I'll be there for you
(When the rain starts to pour)
I'll be there for you
(Like I've been there before)
I'll be there for you
('Cause you're there for me too)


TONE; Increasing / Positive

MOOD; Happy

THEME; Good Friendship/ Good friend are always there for you whenever you need them (in good or bad time)

The song I’ll be there for you reminds me of the day when I met Selvi. When I move to Canada I had left my all friend in India. I thought that it will be hard to make new friends in new country especially best friend, but it wasn't that hard. I still member, I was new in Fraser heights as well Selvi when we met first thine. It was ELL class and our teacher Ms. Chatha. I was the first one who introduce herself. I had made couple friends before I met Selvi. But for her was the first friend in Fraser heights. However, I felt nice when I met her. I never thought that we will come best friend one day. I don’t think I’ll ever forget that movement.
