Personal Narrative: Six Songs Of Music
What is the first song you ever bought?
To remember a single song that was the first I ever purchased is difficult, but I can trace it back to one band and one album. The album is called Nevermind, performed by the band Nirvana. The song, in particular, that comes to mind is “Come As You Are.” I have always been a big Nirvana fan and this song is one of the first that I can remember downloading. Whether or not I downloaded them off of Itunes or Limewire, is beyond my memory. My favorite lyric is, “Take your time, hurry up. Choice is yours don 't be late. Take a rest as a friend” (Nirvana, 1991), because I feel it is very relative to my life right now. Graduating from high school, choosing a college, and moving …show more content…
Coldplay has been some if my family’s favorite music since they first started recording. In particular, it reminded me of all the amazing road trips that my family and I used to go on. No matter what, there was always the guarantee of listening to at least three Coldplay albums over the duration of the car ride. With that being said, “Clocks” is one of my all-time favorite Coldplay songs. THe lyric that always speaks to me is, “ Confusion never stops, closing walls and ticking clocks. Gonna come back and take you home, I could not stop that you now know, singing…” (Coldplay, 2002), because it exemplifies how my time with my family and friends is quickly ticking away.
What is your perfect love song? My idea of the perfect love song is “The Way You Look Tonight” by Frank Sinatra. Being a huge Frank Sinatra fan all of my life I was tempted to use so many of his songs as my “perfect” love song. However, this song never fails to amaze me. My favorite lyric is “Someday, when I 'm awfully low. When the world is cold. I will feel a glow just thinking of you and the way you look tonight” (Sinatra, 1961). This song speaks to me now more than ever, because I am moving to Colorado for the summer, and three months after that I will be leaving home to begin my college career.

I have been assigned a project such as this several times during my high school career, and each time I have chosen “The Lazy Song” by Bruno Mars to represent myself. Now, anybody from my closest friends to someone I only have a single conversation with would easily understand how much of a “lazy you know what” I tend to be. Since I was a small child I never liked getting up early in the morning, and because of that I probably have my mother to thank for my graduating from high school, as I am positive I would have been dropped from half of my classes if she did not wake me up every morning. Although, as a senior this year I will say that I have gotten better at using my alarm clock to wake up on-time. I am quite proud of this accomplishment, but I truly owe it to the intricate system I put in place for my alarm clock in the morning: First, I set my alarm for 5:45 AM and allow myself to eight minutes for a “snooze” period. Then, I simply use the snooze mode approximately four to five more times after the initial alarm to allow my body to gradually wake up. By this time I am nearly fully awake and have enough energy to get out of my very comfortable bed. This is one of the main reasons why my favorite lyric from this particular Bruno Mars song is
