The song I chose for analysis is Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin I have looked over the lyrics of the songs and come to the conclusion that the song is about the Apocalypse It is about how people would react if they knew that the world was about to end I have broken down the meanings in almost every verse which I will show later on in this assignment The mood of the song is slow and depressing during the time in which they are waiting for the end to come By the end of the song it gets faster and livelier to show happiness and hope The song had several poetic devises such as internal rhyme onomatopoeia and most importantly metaphors The only onomatopoeia was the word humming which was used once and is also a metaphor The internal rhymes were one that sounded like rhymes when sung When she gets there she knows if the stores are all closed And its whispered that soon if we all call the tune And a new day will dawn for those who stand long Your head is humming and wont go in case you dont know and the last being Dear lady can you hear the wind blow and did you know The most important poetic devise in the song was the metaphors My idea of the message in the song was based on the following metaphors Theres a lady whos sure all that glitters is gold People who think all that glitters is gold are fools So this lady is a fool to think she can buy her way in to heavenTheres a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings In a tree by the brook theres a songbird who sings Sometimes all our thoughts are misgiven The two meanings are telling you about the metaphors used in the song
