Song Analysis : Where Is The Love? Assignment

1237 words - 5 pages

2.
The song titled ‘Where is the Love’ presented by The Black Eyed Peas has many massages in it and the messages are about Discrimination, Terrorism, Racial Discrimination, Social Injustice and Humanity Beings. I think the first message is about Discrimination about as people act like they haven’t been told what is right and wrong by their parents and treat people unfairly- example of this message can be seen in line 1 and 2, “What's wrong with the world, mama? People livin' like they ain't got no mamas”. Check the highlighted on the lyrics attached.
The second message that is shown in the lyrics is Terrorism as countries are trying to stop terrorism overseas but they have forgotten to stop terrorism in their own nation and as I have heard about the Bloods, the Crips and the KKK are the gang that bring violence and horror to America (the country where this song was produced) - line 5, 6, 7 and 8. The next message has been displayed in the lyrics is Racism as white people in America treated other skin-coloured people unfairly and if that keep happening, hatred will occur in different races- this can be seen in line 9,10,11 and 12.
Another message I think is about Social Injustice because I learned that Iraq use children as a part of their soldiers and in the war, America killed many children as a result of bombing- examples are lines 32,33 and 34. The last message in line 57, 58 and 59 is clearly about Human Wrong-doings as the world is turning into a cold-blooded world with cold-blooded people and we only care about making money instead of knowing what the true values of life is.

4.
The song titled “Where is the Love?” is relevant to the students of St Johns Park High School because there’s bullying (social injustice), Discrimination and Racism contributing inside the school. We can learn about racism especially in line 9, 10, 11 and 12 which says “But if you only love for your race, then you only leave space to discriminate”. This line’s message is if you contribute in racism and love your own race, you’ll be disgraceful and lonely. The next message that relevant to St Johns Park High School’s students is Discrimination as students tease other kids because they have disability- line 1 and 2
Line-32-33 -and -34 message’s is about social injustice and bullying-“People killing, people dying, children hurt and you hear them crying”. This line is relevant also to student as they bully younger kids in school and make them shed theirs tears for their entertainment.
