Songs

Students tend to connect with music. I’m looking for songs that you believe highly identify with one or more aspects of culture. The basis for this idea was the song “American Pie.” Don McClean’s song is packed with cultural references. See http://www.whrc-wi.org/americanpie.htm for one person’s interpretation of the lyrics.

  1. Sounds like an interesting project! What about Madonna’s “Material Girl”? I think it says something about society’s preoccupation on living the high life. You could also try “Born in the USA” by Bruce Springsteen since blue collar society identifies with it.
