Class assignment due Wednesday 9/1/10

1.) Make sure to "follow" me on your blog. This is as simple as going to my page and clicking the "follow me" tab on the bottom right corner.

2.) Add a video from the internet of any tune or song that you really like. (Be sure to check out the tutorial video below for help.) In the comment section below the video write three to four well thought-out paragraphs describing why you like that song. List specific aspects that you dig. For example: Do you enjoy the groove that the bass and the drums have? Are there specific lyrics that you identify with? Do you have a history with this piece of music? Think about how your life is made better by having this music.

Be sure to include two ideas you want the listener of the song to ask themselves while they listen to your song.
