You are to choose your favorite song and analyze it using
the information gathered in MUS103. The song must have at least three of the
key elements we have discussed as essential for sound to be considered music.
In your analysis please discus the use of keys, times, scales, rhythms, and
tempos. Explain how those parts make the song flow or how they make the
audience feel. Also address if those parts are used to convey a story or
emotion from the artist’s point of view. Lastly make sure you explain how the
use of keys, times, scales, rhythms, and tempos help progress the song from
start to finish. A good question to ask is, why did the composer choose what he
or she did?
