Today’s challenge was not easy for me today! Mainly, it’s because I generally listen to music for enjoyment rather than scanning for different meanings of a song. So, I asked for some help. It’s not against the rule book! 😉 Like looking at a work of art, I think any person can listen to the same song and gather different interpretations.
So, I found this interesting article called The Hidden Meaning of these 8 Most Popular Christmas Songs. This was the excerpt for “Carol of the Bells”
This song originally wasn’t about Christmas at all. It was a Ukrainian folk chant called “Shchedryk” that welcomed the spring and described a bird flying into someone’s house to tweet about good fortune. Composer Peter Wilhousky heard the chant performed and wrote the English lyrics to the popular, fast-paced “Carol of the Bells.”Carol of the Bells, Mic.com
Lindsey Stirling performs an amazing Carol of the Bells and takes us on a wintry adventure!
My roommate shared with me “Casser La Voix” by Maxime Landry showing the range of the French language. Many French words can take on various interpretations in music.
A friend recently shared with me “Trampoline” by Shaed. I felt like trampoline was a metaphor the subconscious or a dream world.
