  • An Analysis Of Pink Floyd's Song 'Time'

    Most people are confused about the differences between lyrics and poems. Poems are outlined to be silent or aloud, on the other hand lyrics are mapped out to go along with music.

If you lay out the lyrics of Pink Floyd 's song "Time" without the accompanying music, many questions and observations come to mind. One of which why is there no chorus in the song? Songs generally contain a chorus and it is peculiar to stumble across a song in absence of one, such as "Time." It makes the listener wonder if the Pink Floyd members purposefully chose to eliminate the chorus when brainstorming ideas for "Time"? It is extremely probable. The lyrics of Pink Floyd 's song "Time" have a compelling meaning. The musicians wrote the lyrics to have the power to construct a person 's thoughts about their own life and see how time slips away. When I look at what the moral of this song is, I believe it is that people must live every moment of their lives to the absolute fullest. If you take a second look at the "Time" lyrics, you will see there is no sense of repetition. A viewer can conclude repetition would occur if there were a chorus, but we know there isn 't one, and repetition doesn 't pop up in any of the phrases in the song. Perchance this was an additional purposeful choice in hopes to play in to the "Time" theme. The theme is that…

    The moon is the brightest object in the night sky. On some nights, the moon looks like a shining circle of light. On others, it looks like a thin, silver fingernail.

If the moon and Earth were side by side, the moon would look like a tennis ball next to a basketball.

  • Essay On Misconceptions In Astronomy

    closer Earth is to the sun, the hotter it is, resulting in summer. Likewise, the further away the Earth is from the Sun, the colder it is, resulting in winter. We know that the reason seasons exist is because of the 23.5 degree tilt of the Earth. For instance, when Earth is on the right of the Sun, the tilt causes the northern hemisphere to be in the dark and the southern hemisphere to be illuminated in daylight. Therefore, in the northern hemisphere, it is winter and in the southern hemisphere,…

    The Moon is a natural satellite of Earth. Earth only sees one face of the Moon at all times because of the Moon's synchronous rotation. This is due to the fact that the Moon rotates on its axis the same amount of time that it takes to complete an orbit around Earth. The current explanation for the formation of the Moon is called the giant impact hypothesis. Which proposes that an object the size of Mars collided with Earth, blasting Earth's outer layers into space. These layers would…
