Every other week we do a song analysis. I have a jar that students can submit songs anonymously and I choose a song at random.
So far in 10 weeks, we haven’t analyzed any songs in this decade, and only one from this century…
I drew song a few weeks ago and, are you ready for this?, it was Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer.”
I couldn’t help myself. I laughed. I laughed for a long time.
The student shrugged his shoulder and with wide eyes said, “What? I like old songs!”
