On this tract we're going to examine Contemporary Christian Music.
So I had to do some more research and include more material and analysis of the text. But in the end I feel like I did a good job in the analysis but I think I can do better.
Glen Ballard and Siedah Garret wrote the famous record and Quincy Jones produced it with the cooperation of Jackson himself. The record was nominated for a record of the year at the Grammys and it topped the billboard Hot for two weeks Wikipedia. According to Guinness World Records, he is the most successful entertainer of all time.
He has won thirteen Grammy awards, 26 American Music awards and his album Thriller was one of the best-selling albums of all time. Jackson has sold over four hundred million albums in his music career.
The writers of the song are Glen Ballard and Siedah Garret. Garret is also an American songwriter and vocalist. In the beginning of the song Jackson introduces the idea of a change which he has never done before. He also mentions seeing the homeless people with nowhere to go to.
It has been five years since he released his last album and he has been experiencing a lot of problems with the media at that time. There were rumors about his skin that was getting lighter that was saying thathe was trying to look more like a Caucasian male and another rumor that mentioned him using an oxygen chamber to look younger.
As you can tell he was having a really bad time and what better way to respond to these rumors and allegation but through his amazing talents. He also needed to remind them that he is a human with feelings who cares about the people around him and to re-acclaim his image of that young innocent boy who had a dream he wanted to achieve and that someplace along the way they forgot about that.
These are all of the reasons why he needed to produce a song like this one at that time. The song is more pathos than logos because in the song he shows how compassionate he is to the less fortunate.
Even though the song is an upbeat pop song, it is also considered sentimental and sensitive.
He is targeting with his music sentiment people who appreciate good music and good lyrics with depth in them and he is also reaching out for people with the will to change in their hearts. He had a lot of fans from children to grown men and women.
He had fans from the entire world with different socioeconomic status but mainly who could afford his album and more. Any person interested or works in the music business in the United States must have heard his song such as: His fans are considered to be the most emotional of fans.
If you saw all the tributes that were made for him and how many of them cried even before his death in his concert, you realize how much he touched their lives and how he reached out to them with his music. I would say that the song was rhetorically effective for many reasons. First, the song was very successful in all the worldwide charts and especially in the United States.
Third, the awards it received and the Grammy nominations. When the song first came out, it was a major hit and everyone fell in love with it. I can say all of this with assurance and certainty because I have experienced it myself. After his sudden death caused by a heart attack, millions mourned for his death and almost every person in this world knew about his passing.
He is no longer occupying the physical body that so many came to either adore or criticize. He is no longer being judged by a loving or hateful public.
So farewell Michael Jackson, you will always be in our hearts and may you rest in peace.However, music uses language that we classify as bad. There is a ton of profanity in music, especially rap and hip hop. There aren’t many rap songs that don’t use the N-word.
It is offensive, corrupt and wrong to use this kind of language from my perspective. The N-word was never used as a nice word, and it is a highly offensive word.
Which rapper has the filthiest mouth, how has profanity in rap changed over the years. In this analysis of rap since , you'll learn these things and much more. Check it out.

Be sure that it is a song that is appropriate for school (no vulgar or offensive language, or over-emphasis on violence or sexual themes). Choose a song that contains poetic devices like the ones we have been discussing in class.
Worst Things About Rap Music Rap music is amazing in its influence and popularity. Far more than just a musical style, rap and the sub-genres of rap have created distinct cultures with specific expectations, status symbols, and norms.
As shown in Figure 1, eight of the songs (40%) sampled were coded strictly for physical violence; none of the songs were coded for strictly rape/sexual assault; two songs (10%) were coded strictly for sexual conquest; and two songs (10%) were coded strictly for demeaning language.
