Essay, Music

Paper, Order, or Assignment Requirements

Assignment: Your goal is to (p)ose an interpretive question about a musical album and respond analytically showing your readers how the lyrics support your
interpretation. You may use any single music album by one artist that features singing/rapping/lyrics other than a Greatest Hits/Best of album or a mix album. You cannot work with instrumental music (music with no lyrics spoken or sung) either.
You need to pick no fewer than 3 songs and no more than 5 songs to support your thesis. In the introduction to your essay, pose an interesting, problematic, and
significant question about the lyrics/, one that can be answered several different ways according to the evidence in the text. Look for a question that might lead to differences in opinion among your classmates and that offers readers new insights into the lyrics. Your task in this assignment is not to discover the right way to interpret the text, but to explain your way of reading some aspect of it.
Using a closed-form structure, present your thesis and your supporting arguments. Before you give your thesis, make clear just what question you are putting to the text and why. It is this question that engages your readers interest and makes them look forward to your analysis. (In other words, no one should ask, Who cares? after reading your introductory paragraph). Then, in the body of your paper, explain your own responses to this question, contrasting your answer with other possible interpretations that (may) have been proposed by your classmates (or others) or that you yourself have considered. You need to provide
the citation/integration of at least two secondary sources that provide an insight into your reading of the lyrics. Feel free to dispute the alternative interpretations if necessary, but concentrate on showing your reader how you arrived at your interpretation and why you think that interpretation is valuable. Use details from the lyrics (and appropriate secondary sources) for support.
