  • Hardships In Music

    beginning, middle and an end. Metallica 's song "One" is a great example of this musical structure. Based on the book "Johnny Got His Gun" by Dalton Trumbo, the song 's context is referring to an incapacitated soldier who is searching for death after losing all hope in living. The details of helplessness explain in the lyrics such as, "Darkness/Imprisoning me/All that I see/Absolute horror/I cannot live/I cannot die/Trapped in myself" (Metallica). Indirectly, I can identify with the words and the tone of the song, although I 've never felt what it 's like to be incapacitated. However, I have experienced the inclination of being trapped, so it helps me connect the same when I sing to the song. Another wonderful example of indirect relation is Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young 's "Wooden Ships." "Horror grips us as we watch you die/All we can do is echo your anguished cries/Stare as all human feelings die" (CSNY). The main character in this song is trying to survive during a nuclear holocaust while accepting that there is nothing they can do as people die. Although I haven 't known a nuclear holocaust; the sensation of sadness I get when I hear the harmonizing singing of the words die and cries I can compare to from past knowledge. People naturally sync with certain expressive phrases or sounds that give us a similar feeling of what humans go through. Imagining myself as these characters who’ve transpired through a lot helps in realizing that my life isn 't as bad, even if it’s…
