Pop Song and Blues Song Metacognition 

My pop song was about love. I don’t know why I wrote this it was just in the back of my head. It was hard to record because I didn’t know how to copy and paste the guitar beat into GarageBand which made it hard, but other than that it was pretty easy.

 

My Blues song was really fun to write because me and Finn were having fun while doing it which was kind of the point of this. The way we made this song was about a dog who dies. We both have had dogs in the past that have died so we could both relate, this one was much better.


My W.W. Fenn

 

 

By Gail Mazur

In the warming house, children lace their skates,   

bending, choked, over their thick jackets.


A Franklin stove keeps the place so cozy

it’s hard to imagine why anyone would leave,


clumping across the frozen beach to the river.   

December’s always the same at Ware’s Cove,


the first sheer ice, black, then white

and deep until the city sends trucks of men


with wooden barriers to put up the boys’   

hockey rink. An hour of skating after school,


of trying wobbly figure-8’s, an hour

of distances moved backwards without falling,


then—twilight, the warming house steamy   

with girls pulling on boots, their chafed legs


aching. Outside, the hockey players keep   

playing, slamming the round black puck


until it’s dark, until supper. At night,

a shy girl comes to the cove with her father.


Although there isn’t music, they glide

arm in arm onto the blurred surface together,


braced like dancers. She thinks she’ll never

be so happy, for who else will find her graceful,


find her perfect, skate with her

in circles outside the emptied rink forever?


I chose this piece because it is about skating, as whoever reading this knows. I really enjoy skating outside because for me it’s like nothing else in the world. I love the way this poem is written and I makes it easy to memorize.

My dog passed away, I carried him through the hay

Oh, My dog passed away, I carried him through the hay

Yeah, to the barn where the other dogs lay

 

The next day was so very sad,

But my grandfather made me kinda glad,

Because my dog was a very good lad

 

I sat down down just by myself

Only to find pictures on the shelf

Of me with my doggy

 

As I sit there, I remember the times

Of me and my dog in our primes

When I heard your voice it was a moment of rejoice. The way of the maze put me in a daze. The tone of that guitar made me feel, like a star. As I entered that bar, I realized I was far, from where I needed to be. I needed to cuddled up with you on a beach, so I flew us out thanks to my good boy preach. The plane touched down it was as heaven was abound and I couldn’t help, but stare. At your pretty hair, damn those eyes, filled me with butterflies and I couldn’t help, but think where I’d be if you didn’t swoop in and save me.

 

 


Music Memoir

With Music Comes Memories, and With Memories Come Music

“Jesus, take the wheel”- Carrie Underwood

 

Music tells stories. Carrie Underwood’s songs touch me in many ways. Especially Jesus Take the Wheel. This one touched me when we had a tough game at school. Me and Kal were in sixth grade sports study because we ended up on the varsity lacrosse team. We were about to play Fessenden who was notorious for having good lacrosse team, but we knew we could give them a fight. Kal, being the joker that he is said we may need this song while we’re playing, he skipped the song to 0:59 seconds right then and there you could hear a blare “JESUS TAKE THE WHEEEEEEL take it from my hands” out of the corner of my eye I saw Mrs. Duval and I heard who is doing that, Kal said “oh yeah uhh my bad.” Through this experience I saw that music can help you when you need it and how it can always create memorable experience that will last for a lifetime, this may be a small experience, but it was fun and it was a good experience. Music made a memory.

 


Power of Music

Music Cures Boredom Among Other Things DD0CEC2E-2A9F-49B9-AD85-FA51395A925A

“One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.” ― Bob Marley

 

 

     Music helps make life more enjoyable. If I didn’t have music I would die of boredom. Music makes life so much entertaining, even when it’s in the most boring time. Every day I wake up at 6:30 to get ready for school, and I leave on the bus at 7:10, but when I leave I’m still half asleep. The morning bus was one of the lows of all of my days. I just sit there, antisocial as everyone is when they are tired, but I have one things some kids don’t, I have the ability to listen to music. From “Pull Up” by: Lul Kel to “White Iverson” by: Post Malone. These song just brighten up my depressing morning bus rides in the best of ways. If I didn’t have music the morning bus rides could’ve ended worse, me falling asleep and no one waking me up, or something worse. The time that I’ve spent listening and loving music is uncountable. Not only does music keep you awake, but it tells you stories, wether it’s rap (which I like), classic, country, pop, etc. it all tells a story. If someone took music away from me I don’t know what I would do, because it just lightens up my day to the max. Through all the bus rides this year only one thing has always been there for me, music.
