I have a song that I am suppose to analyze/critique for one of my courses but am having some trouble doing so, as is everyone else in my music class. And it is due tomorrow morning. This will not take any pianist more then 10 minutes if there is anyone here willing to spare it:
All you have to do is go to this site.....www.johnthelegend.com
This is how you get to the song. When you enter you scroll down and click on PLease click here to hear John Legend's music, first one on the left song is "ORDINARY PEOPLE". the timings on the song will obviously be different then the example presented below.
0:20 new note, melody continues to descend
0:46 more motion in melody and change in accompanying figures
1:01 little flourish in melody
1:07 repeats step one
1:22 more rhythmic activity in both hands
1:25 loudest section
If you can just express like the example presented above on what is going on in the song at the different time intervals. If you choose not to assist me, I understand. For anyone who helps, I would like to thank them very very much in advance.
