    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…

    recorded by the most popular artists of the time like Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby and Nat King Cole. And usually altered to fit the artist and for them to have their own interpretation of the song. These songs would become hits and be recorded for years to come.

    Samuel lays out the foundation of some of ancient Israelis most famous and influential kings, describing in detail the rise of king David, and the reign of his predecessor Saul. However, while presented as Israeli history, the tales of Samuel possess a clear bias in favor of King David, as the text attempts to exonerate him of any wrongdoing during his rise to king. 1 Samuel 25, a small excerpt from this larger kingship narrative, possesses important social and literal conflicts, as it broaches…

    far from admitting this sin to the society he lives in. Yet guilt plays a major role throughout that eventually engulfs his whole life. While describing the minister’s room, subtle hints are hidden around those four confined walls in order to serve as a reminder of the awful deed he once committed. “The walls were hung round with tapestry, said to be from the Gobelin looms, and, at all events, representing the Scriptural story of David and Bathsheba, and Nathan the Prophet, in colors still…

    Worship is defined as “The feeling or expression of reverence and adoration for a deity.” Before this course I always thought it was just the slow songs at church that always came before the sermon, I now understand It to be a way of life. King David was an incredible symbol of worship both in his time and ours, and is particularly significant in how we should view worship. The way that we worship, as Pentecostal Christians as apposed to Anglican Christians is very different as they are very…
