Lyrics, class, and what the language used in the songs we listen to tells about us.
 
Hi,

I'm doing a communications and culture investigation- looking at the cultural context of music, and more specifically the language within particular songs and genres.

I would really like your opinion on how the lyrics to peoples' favourite songs reflect their background, class, identity, etc.

For example, do you think restricted language (words and phrases that only make sense to a particular subculture) used within a song reflects a working class fan base/audience? does symbollic or heavy use of imagery suggest a middle- high class audience?

The more you can develop it the better!! Really interested to know what you think.

Thanks

I think the ability to afford to play instruments at all implies a middle-class upbringing.

Not necessarily

I have no clue but I love cake. Jello cake is one of the best things to ever exist. I could go for some right now.

I didnt know they made such a thing. Is the cake jello, or just a jello frosting?

There is jello in the cake, but the cake itself isn't entirely jello.Liek this.

I think I will attempt to makethat this weekend. And that would make sence, if the whole cake were jello it wouldnt be cake. Just a bunch of jello shaped like cake.

Sorry to the thread maker, but I know you just want some answers then you will never return here again so I dont care that this thread has gone to ****.

Where the fuck did this come from?

lol for a second I thought Yukon Cornelius was the OP and then this would have been very, very cruel.

But yeah, jello cake is great. But not nearly as good as Boston Creme Pie. Yum.
