    For English we have to choose a song, analyze the lyrics and tell everybody what message the song is really trying to convey onto the listener.
    Now I already have a few options I've chosen but I need to narrow it down to one. Feel free to leave song suggestions yourself.

    1.Rick Astley - Never gonna give you up.
    wouldn't be the first time I've rickrolled a whole class of students but I'm having trouble thinking of an actual message.
    2.Giga Pudding - Random Japanese Commercial?
    Message = Buy our pudding/flan
    3.Matchbox Twenty - How Far We've Come
    This is the easy, serious way. Message is obvious for anybody whos heard the song (and if you haven't I definitely suggest you do)
    But I still feel like doing a hilarious option
    4.*insert your own recommendation here*

    Go ahead and rickroll them. They wont know what hit 'em.

    Seriously, though. Gotta make some effort at least for schoolwork. Hmmm... Can't exactly suggest anything in my playlist. 'Tis all rock and such.

    How bout no, I'll tell my friend to do this one.


    Rock is fine as long as it has a "positive" message, the teacher will allow it.
    oh and if theres swearing then I have to use a clean version of the song

    Ugh...trying to use internet memes in school to seem funny / cool.....it's just really unfunny, and you'll look stupid either fumbling over yourself in anticipation, or laughing at it alone.

    Just....do a real choice.

    The message is that you should move away from the mic to breathe.
