Write an analytical argument about the song and video by Switchfoot (ft. Le Crae), Looking for America. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lndCb–hzsc
When we analyze, we make a claim about what something means or how it works. We support that claim by looking closely at the component parts that reveal a meaning that is not immediately obvious to the casual observer.
Your claim should make an argument about the interpretation OR effectiveness of this song and/or its accompanying music video. If you choose, you may also draw on quotes and ideas from The Declaration of Independence and/or Martin Luther King Jr.s I Have a Dream speech to help support your analysis.
Here are some sample ideas for analysis and argument:
How do the visuals of the music video bring out a meaning in the song that is not as apparent when the song is listened to on its own?
Using the parts of the rhetorical situation that we learned in class, make a claim about the Reader, Author, Constraints or Exigence for this song/video, using only details from the video to support your point.
What is the effect of the combination of musical styles on this song? How does the songs style contribute to or affect its meaning?
How would you compare the American Dream presented in Looking for America with the American dream presented in Kings I Have a Dream?
What role does God and faith play in Looking for America and how do those elements effect the songs message?
How would you compare the role God/faith play in Kings I Have a Dream with the role it plays in Looking for America?
How has the vision for equality in America changed since Kings speech in 1963, as reflected in Looking for America?
