MUSIC – TITLES & OPPOSITES
Hey good people. Hope y’all had a weekend way more restful than mine. The football seasons around Europe have pretty much wrapped up and basketball is also almost done (how are we going to survive) and as far as I’m concerned, this year’s Big Brother is just blehhhh. I really wanted to rant this morning but after I woke up to the rain here in Lagos, I took solace in music and I decided to do something I did almost exactly this time last year. It’s going to be a lazy-ish post but hopefully we can have fun with it.
I’ll be playing teacher while you guys get to be my students. I have a simple, or not so simple assignment for y’all. Well, it’s more like an examination.
THE TOOLSMAN SCHOOL OF MUSIC
2st SEMESTER EXAMINATION
MNA 101 (MUSIC ANATOMY)
Date: 21st May, 2011. Time: 1 Hour
This is really an experiment I’m hoping works out. I was thinking generally about songs and how it almost seems some are the direct opposite of others. It may be difficult to identify a lot if you use the actual lyrics of the songs but using the titles, you can come up with quite a lot.
Here are a few examples to get y’all going:
Title: Stay – Ne-yo
Opposite: Go – Common
Title: Talk – Timbaland ft Tpain
Opposite: Kelly Osborne – Shut Up
Title: Good morning – Kanye West
Opposite: Goodnight goodnight – Maroon Five
Opposite: Sleep tight – Kano
Title: Complicated – Robin Thicke
Opposite: Simple things – Usher
Title: Get Out – Shyne
Opposite: Come into my room
Title: Beautiful – Snoop Dogg
Opposite: Ugly -Bubba Sparx
Title: Red light – Usher
Opposite: Green light – John Legend
Ok, ok, so you get the point. Now it’s your turn. These examples were quite easy so lets see just how creative we all can get.
PS: I’d really like to see some Nigerian titles.
Ok, there you go. I did warn you it was going to be lazy but lets try to have fun with it. So, off with you. Use the comment box and get creative. Cheers.
