- One song that has a special meaning to me is I see Fire by Ed Sheeran. The first time I hear this song was when I was in high school and a girl performed an acoustic version of it. For some reason this song had a massive impact on me. I could feel the emotion in the lyrics. For me it is a very relaxing song as it is slow and soft but had a beautiful rhythm to it, but also creates a strong impact when the song hits the bridge and outro as the beat becomes more intense which I love. The way he plays the guitar is in this song gives me chills, in the best way. I think this is one of Ed Sheeran’s best songs and I think he is a very talented artist with not only his voice but his instrumental background. This is also my favorite song that Ed played live at his concert I went to in both 2015 and 2018.
2) Connotations associated with heavy metal
The feelings that instantly come to mind when thinking of heavy metal is anger, strong emotional feelings, stress, and a way that people like to de-stress by listening to something loud and heavy.
3) Connotations associated with piano instrumentals
Piano instrumentals remind me of relaxation and soothing. Something people would listen to as a relaxing background noise.
4) I think the message silence gives in a movie is an intense build up and creates drama. Sometimes silence is the biggest message.
