This blog is a student run project to delve into "Into the West" written by Annie Lennox and sung by Annie Lennox. The posts that follow will contain a textual and contextual analysis of the lyrics, the writer’s word choice, how the music emphasizes certain lyrics, and how those lyrics function in the world.
I am particularly interested in seeing what responses, memories and feelings these lyrics evoke in myself as I continue to peel back the layers of meaning. And less interested in interviews given by the artist on the lyrics, although I may include some of those later on in my project.
Over the next three weeks, this blog will feature three posts per week. These posts will develop two distinctive theories of meaning. I encourage everyone to leave comments as I will use those comments to help further build and refute my theories.
Later, this blog will also feature an visual argument based on my interpretations.
