Celebrating Individual Excellence Song Assignment Web Page

During the Renaissance, there was a special emphasis placed on the worth of the individual, personal achievement, especially in literature. Sometimes in modern times we tend to forget how extremely important each person is. Popular music is one form of expression for the individual. It's poetry set to music. Most of us have a song, or songs, that we can identify with because the lyrics express our view of ourselves, or our ideals.

Your assignment is to find that "your" song and describe how the lyrics fit your personality, attitude and/or ideals. You must include the song title, lyrics, artist(s), and song author if different from the artist(s) who recorded it.

Here are some web sites I found that may help you in finding the lyrics for "your song."
