Transcript: Theoretical Perspective Soledad Visual Representation Music Clip Westlife Soledad is a simple Pop song that centralizes on solitude, here we are told that a relationship was cut short for a reason that isn’t very clear. Person A left Person B causing them grief and pain. The big question is, where did Person A go, is he/ she dead? Join the military? or break up due to change in living style/ environment? Lyrics "Soledad" If only you could see the tears in the world you left behind If only you could heal my heart just one more time Even when I close my eyes There's an image of your face And once again I come to REALIZE You're a loss I can't replace Soledad It's a keeping for the lonely Since the day that you were gone Why did you leave me Soledad In my heart you were the only And your memory lives on Why did you leave me Soledad Walking down the streets of Nothingville Where our love was young and free Can't believe just what an empty place It has come to be I would give my life away If it could only be the same Cause I conceal the voice inside of me That is calling out your name Soledad It's a keeping for the lonely Since the day that you were gone Why did you leave me Soledad In my heart you were the only And your memory lives on Why did you leave me Soledad Time will never change the things you've told me After all we're meant to be love will bring us back to you and me If only you could see Soledad It's a keeping for the lonely Since the day that you were gone Why did you leave me Soledad In my heart you were the only And your memory lives on Why did you leave me Soledad Songwriter Analysis Westlife didn't write the song, they sang it. Soledad's lyricists are K.C. Porter, Andreas Carlson, and Rami Yacoub. In my perspective the song was written due to a break up; a break up between lovers. It signifies the pain and grief that one party feels after the loose of someone special. Soledad means solitude, it is also the name of a place in California and could also be the name of a person; now what does Soledad really mean in this context, honestly it means all three; Soledad, it’s a keeping for the lonely- Soledad is a safe place for those who are lonely; Soledad, In my heart you were the only- in this context Soledad being the name of someone; and then Soledad on its own being repeated several times signifies solitude and the loneliness flowing through the writer. What is the social Exchange theory? Now looking from this perspective, how does social exchange theory connect with soledad? Social exchange theory is a "psychological theory that looks at how individuals make choices within roles by weighing costs and benefits... According to this theory, individuals know what they have to offer, and what they heed. Benefits are rewarding because they meet a precieved need and can include physical or emotional security, access to goods and services, and social approval" (Approaches to studying Individuals and Families, P.g 41). Now how does this connect in this context? Well listening to Soledad; you could assume the relationship ended due to ill agreement between the people within the relationship, as the lyrics go "I will give my life away, if it could only be the same" meaning the person did not realize what they had, he/ she wasn't putting enough into the relationship to make it work. Insights on the song My visual representation of soleda is of a gloomy setting. Someone who really is in grief.
