"Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air (Theme Song)"

Now, this is a story all about how
My life got flipped-turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute
Just sit right there
I'll tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bel Air

In west Philadelphia born and raised
On the playground was where I spent most of my days
Chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool
And all shootin some b-ball outside of the school
When a couple of guys who were up to no good
Started making trouble in my neighborhood
I got in one little fight and my mom got scared
She said 'You're movin' with your auntie and uncle in Bel Air'

I begged and pleaded with her day after day
But she packed my suit case and sent me on my way
She gave me a kiss and then she gave me my ticket.
I put my Walkman on and said, 'I might as well kick it'.

First class, yo this is bad
Drinking orange juice out of a champagne glass.
Is this what the people of Bel-Air living like?
Hmmmmm this might be alright.

But wait I hear they're prissy, bourgeois, all that
Is this the type of place that they just send this cool cat?
I don't think so
I'll see when I get there
I hope they're prepared for the prince of Bel-Air

Well, the plane landed and when I came out
There was a dude who looked like a cop standing there with my name out
I ain't trying to get arrested yet
I just got here
I sprang with the quickness like lightning, disappeared

I whistled for a cab and when it came near
The license plate said fresh and it had dice in the mirror
If anything I could say that this cab was rare
But I thought 'Nah, forget it' - 'Yo, homes to Bel Air'

I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8
And I yelled to the cabbie 'Yo homes smell ya later'
I looked at my kingdom
I was finally there
To sit on my throne as the Prince of Bel…...

The time does not really play an important role in this research since we are not focusing on a specific musical era; but the questions we mainly about contemporary song lyrics.

...Classical Indian Music It is undeniable that the music of a people is embedded in their culture and traditions, and so is the Indian classical music. The tones and sounds of the Indian music bear influence from the Hindu religion and their culture. Instrumentation and notation has been quite unique unlike the Western music. Ravi Shankar is among Indian musicians who have revolutionalized the classical Indian music and has won three Grammy Wards. Although Shankar interacted with other artists from other cultures, his music reflects on the Indian musical traditions. The classical Indian music is reputed style of music which even today espouses the aesthetics of the ancient times despite having had influence from other genres of music (Massey & Massey, 1996). The classical music of India is categorized into two; the Hindustani music which is from Northern Indian region and Carnatic music from Southern India. Massey and Massey (1996) argue that a common similarity of the two genres is that they employ one raga per song and the music has heavy improvisation element. Raga is what may be compared to mode or scale in Western music. The difference is evident because Hindustani music has the heavy influence of Persian music as opposed to Carnatic music and vocalist element is emphasized in Carnatic music than in Hindustani music. The Indian music is characteristic of tala which is considered as rhythmic pattern enhanced by drums called the tabla and the accompaniment the stringed......

Highway 90 Tree Sculptor

...Highway 90 Tree Sculptor ART100 Highway 90 Tree Sculptor The beautiful tree sculptures that I get to see every day on my commute to work were created by Marlin Miller a native of Manson, Iowa. Miller has created over 30 sculptures and some reach heights of 3 stories (Negrottosgallery.com). Miller uses dead trees that were left behind from Hurricane Katrina as his medium along with several other carving tools and a chainsaw. His pieces bring life back to the beach roads, the same roads that were demolished by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The subject matter would be the oak wood that is used along with the various stains and coatings that he adorns his pieces with. Miller uses various lines and patterns to recreate mostly sea animals and other various figures to display along the medians on Highway 90 in Biloxi MS. His work is viewed from tourists all over the world and respected by the locals. Many locals feel that his work brings a since of life back from something that was once dead. I believe Miller is trying to convey just that. I believe he wants people to recover from the memories of the destruction that Katrina left behind and he helps create new memories by beautifying Biloxi with his work. Every afternoon I drive down Highway 90, I always see tourists taking pictures of his work or posing with their families in front of giant wooden dolphins or birds that were carved and rejuvenated by Miller’s passion. Miller donated several pieces to the city and since then...

...Analyzing Westlife Music Group Student’s Name Institutional Affiliation Westlife General Information Westlife is composed of group of five men all coming from Ireland. They are Nicky Bryne, Bryan McFadden, Shane Filan, Kian Egan, and Mark Feehily (“Westlife”,2015). Out of the five members of Westlife, Shane was the first one to engage in music. He began his singing career at the age of 12 after performing at the Hawkswell Theatre in Sligo, Ireland. Coincidentally, Shane, Mark and Kian are all from Sligo and they became friends through acting while they were students at the Summerhill College (“Westlife’s History”, 2015). While still in college, Shane was strongly motivated by the success of Boyzone which made him have a strong desire to start doing pop music (“Westlife’s History”, 2015). Shane first thought of starting a four member singing group called SC4 but then went ahead and joined a group called IOU which comprised of Derek Lacey, Graham Keighron, Mark and Michael Garrett (“Westlife”,2015). The group released their first single called “Together Girl Forever”. However, this was the only song that was done by the group. The determination to music prompted Shane’s mother to intervene and ask Louis Walsh, the manager of Boyzones if he could sign Shane (“Westlife”,2015). It is Loius who first signed Shane, Mark and Kian into the first group. Bryan and Nicky later joined their group hence forming Westside band. The group was co-managed by Ronan Keating......

...Paper #1: Music World History 4th period Music has been around since the Paleolithic age and has evolved through the years, entertaining almost every person alive. Like said in the thesis statement, music has been around since the Paleolithic age, as time went on music evolved. There are many different variations of music. The variations tend to revolutionize throughout the ages. The different genres of music consist of pop, rock and roll, hip hop, rap, jazz, and many more. Everyone’s taste in music is different, it could depend on their personality or their mood. Music can be used in so many different ways. It is amazing how music is a part of everyone’s life, even though they may not know. I consider music to be the anchor for all entertainment. Music can be played by many different instruments. It can be played by almost anything from pens, guitars, drums, electronic devices, and basically almost every item in the world. Like I said in the previous paragraph; I consider music to be the anchor for all entertainment. I say this because music itself is entertaining just listening too, but music also gives “spice” to things. It’s like a cherry on top of an ice cream sandwich, just think of a movie without music. I don’t think that is even possible for someone to make a movie without music. The first black and white motion pictures were actually just music and well, moving pictures. I think that music helps many people, it can be used as a stress relieve. Music can......

...MUSIC : THE GOOD,THE NICE,THE DOPE! “ Music is the drug of my choice!” is an ink on one of my favourite tees. And heck ,it’s true! Music is a sweet poison which even makes death (boring lectures in reality) tolerable .this poison is available under various labels – rock, blues,metal,pop,RnB etc.For my convenience, I have arranged these cracks under three stacks: the good,the nice & the third the dope. In our hood, we have lot of ‘good drug’ users. They can be distinguished from their over the top hairdo.They have a great affinity for the devil’s number.They have a self – destruct habit of head banging. One shouldn’t bug them because they have a reputation for their temper. But to be honest my rock listening & metalhead homies ,when I heard the crew of Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, and John Bonham, I certainly got ‘Led’ out on my ‘stairway to heaven’! We all know the nice drug,pop does lighten up our minds & heighten our spirits & RnB does feed our souls. It gives us a goody-goody feeling. This nice drug have various manufacturers ranging from legends like Madonna,Stevie Wonders,Elton john to newbies like Justin beiber,Lady Gaga,Katy Perry,Taylor Swift etc.Artists like Akon ,Usher,Rihanna have taken RnB to an another level. But when I need to be real high & tight I use my third stack ‘the dope’. When I put on my snares (headphones) & hear hip hop/rap, my heart begins to beat to the sync of the hip hop beats & the words of the MC......

Currently, this song has received more than 900 million views, has over 83 million search results, and 280,000 related videos on Youku, which is the China’s largest online Youtube. Some people argue that it is Chinese “Gangnam Style” (Sun). One related video it shows that Chinese paramilitary soldiers are performing a dance of the song “Little Apple” during a show by the local government. On November 24, the South Korea girl pop group T-ara released a remake of the music video of “Little Apple,” and translated most of the words to Korean. On the same day, the Chopstick Brothers performed “Little Apple” at the American Music Awards, where they were awarded the “Best International Music.” “Little Apple” is but one example of a new style of Chinese pop music that has appeared in the last few years.

Sonnet 90 Analysis

...By Marie Kalinina IIIc.2 eng. Sonnet 90 by William Shakespeare Sonnet 90 is one of 154 sonnets written by the English playwright and poet William Shakespeare. It is a member of the Fair Youth sequence, in which the poet expresses his love towards a young man. The sonnet continues the themes of the breakdown of the relationship between the youth and the poet. The poet suggests that the youth should reject him now that everyone seems to be against him. The poet exhorts the youth not to wait to reject him until after these other, less important, sorrows have passed. At least if he is rejected now, his other problems will pale into insignificance. Sonnet 90 continues directly from the previous sonnet, which ended, "For thee, against myself I'll vow debate / For I must ne'er love him whom thou dost hate." In the final couplet of Sonnet 89, the word "hate" proves a shocking contrast to the speaker's usual use of the word "love," and it is echoed here in the line one of Sonnet 90: "Then hate me when thou wilt; if ever, now." In the conventions of the sonnet, "hate" means a beloved's disdain more than the modern-day meaning of the word. This sonnet also continues the downward spiral of loss and wretchedness that began with the sense of a final separation in Sonnet 87: "Farewell, thou art too dear for my possessing." However, the reality of the separation is up in the air. It is unclear whether it has already occurred, or whether it is impending. The use of the word "if" in......

90-360-3

...Early in my career as a product manager, I was asked in an interview, "How long will it take you to make an impact?" I was caught "off script" and don't feel I adequately answered the question. It definitely resonated with me to reflect on and to develop a response. What has come out of that question is a rule that I sum up as: 90-360-3. The 90-360-3 framework is designed to gain critical insights, visibility, and measurable objectives. This rule can be used whether it is your first day or your tenth year on the job. The rule breaks down simply: over ninety days, take a 360-degree view of your company, and develop three top-line measurable objectives. A "first one-hundred days" is pretty much accepted as a good checkpoint for measuring one's effective- ness and overall trajectory. Typical business cycles and critical milestones run quarter to quarter; so, I find the ninety-day rule a good fit. Ninety days is a good rule of thumb, but the timing can be modified to fit other cycles more in tune with your company's specific rhythms, e.g., weekly, monthly, or even semi-annually. I don't recommend using this process beyond six months, since the intent is to develop a behavior that is agile, perceptive, and ef- fective. Also, too short of a period can result in knee-jerk responses and unnecessary churn. Find a rhythm that is effective and sustainable, and make this a habit. Central to the role of product manager is assuming the mantle as "general manager" for all aspects......

...Apple's Branding Strategy Apple Inc. uses the Apple brand to compete across several highly competitive markets, including the personal computer industry with its Macintosh line of computers and related software, the consumer electronics industry with products such as the iPod, digital music distribution through its iTunes Music Store, the smart phone market with the Apple iPhone, magazine, book, games and applications publishing via the AppsStore for iPhone and the iPad tablet computing device, and movie and TV content distribution with Apple TV. For marketers, the company is also establishing a very strong presence to rival Google in the advertising market, via its Apps business and iAd network. Steve Jobs, Apple's co-Founder, described Apple as a "mobile devices company" - the largest one in the world (Apple's revenues are bigger than Nokia, Samsung, or Sony's mobility business). For several years Apple's product strategy involved creating innovative products and services aligned with a "digital hub" strategy, whereby Apple Macintosh computer products function as the digital hub for digital devices, including the Apple iPod, personal digital assistants, cellular phones, digital video and still cameras, and other electronic devices. More recently, the full impact of a very well throught out brand strategy has come into focus - and one in which customer experience is central: the Mac is no longer the hub of all things Apple. Now, Apple offers a harmonised,......
