Year 8 Britpop Lyrics Homework

14 Oct 2014

HOMEWORK TASK:
To write lyrics for 2 verses and a chorus for a Britpop song (we have already done this in class). Due Wednesday 9th October 2013.
The lyrics should be laid out like the examples above (VERSE 1, CHORUS, VERSE 2, CHORUS) with each section underlined and should be completed in your blue music books.

The title of the homework should be the title of your song. Make sure the title and date are both underlined. 

  KEYWORDS:   *RHYME    *CATCHY    *CHORUS     *VERSE   *BRITPOP   *REPETITION   *HOOK  

The words in a song are called lyrics and often they rhyme, like poetry. Lyrics used in Britpop songs are normally about everyday life.
The chorus is the section of the song that you hear most often (repeats), has the ‘catchiest’ lyrics and normally includes the song’s title – it is the section that most people remember.

Typical lyrics for a Britpop song are as fllows:

WONDERWALL
 
VERSE 1
Today is gonna be the day
That they're gonna throw it back to you
By now you should've somehow
Realized what you gotta do
I don't believe that anybody
Feels the way I do about you now
 
CHORUS:
Because maybe
You're gonna be the one who saves me
And after all
You're my wonderwall
 
VERSE 2:
Backbeat the word was on the street
That the fire in your heart is out
I'm sure you've heard it all before
But you never really had a doubt
I don't believe that anybody feels
The way I do about you now
 
CHORUS
Because maybe
You're gonna be the one who saves m
And after all
You're my wonderwall
