Click below to see how my class analyzes lyrics from popular artists! In this 14 page booklet, you will find 8 song lyrics with artist, song title and questions to follow. Also included is a general list of questions that can be used with any song. Some poetry elements included in the questions are rhyme scheme, artist's purpose, figurative language, mood/tone, and specific questions about the meaning of the lyrics. I do one a month and my students beg for me to do more! Of course I download the song for them to listen to as well! Artists include: Bon Jovi, Luther Vandross, John Cougar Mellencamp, Roberta Flack, Steve Miller Band, Bono, Taylor Swift, and Mariah Carey.
