Transcript of Chasing Cars

"Chasing Cars" Rachel Stanley
AP English Language and Composition. What this song is about! Irish/Scottish
5 piece band Band popularity Band Accomplishments Song Popularity Pathos Logos Ethos During the remainder of the song following the first and second stanzas Logos can be depicted by the use of supporting evidence. "Chasing Cars" became a "one-hit wonder"
after it spent 104 weeks in the UK Top 75,
and was voted "song of the decade" in a
channel 4 poll. The band has sold over 11 million albums
and have been responsible for several era
defining singles including; "Chasing Cars",
"Run" and "Chocolate". Their albums have been nominated for
the Mercury Music Prize, Grammys, and
MTV Europe Music Awards. Singer: Gary Lightbody
Guitarist: Nathan Connolly
Bassist: Paul Wilson
Drummer: Jonny Quinn
Keyboardist: Tom Simpson The joys of spending time with the person
you love without worrying about the rest
of the world. Being happy with what you have, and not worrying about all the things that are too far away from your grasp. Making you like a dog constantly "chasing cars" that are too fast for you to ever catch. Living life in the moment, not allowing the barriers
of age or social oppressions to control what you do that makes you happy. Rhetorical Analysis of Citations "Band." SNOW PATROL. n/a. web. 11/13/12. By Snow Patrol Song Released
6 June 2006 Tone:
Heartfelt, Longing,
Soothing, Romantic,
and At ease. Rhetorical Devices:
Metaphor- Let's waste time chasing cars around our head.
Personification- Show me a garden that's bursting into life. Format:
Song, almost poetic. Appeals Between stanzas 4 and 5. The singer verifies his feelings. By admitting "I don't quite know how to say how I feel." He declares that "Those three words are said too much [and] they're not enough." This convinces the audience that what he has to say is genuine and sincere. We'll do it all everything on our own. We don't need anything or anyone. Stanzas 1-2: Evidence: Would 'you' lie with 'me' and just forget the world?
Forget what 'we're' told before 'we' get too old...
'Let's' waste time chasing cars around 'our' heads. Pathos can be located through out the entire song by use of the repeating chorus; If I lay here, if I just lay here, would you lie with me and just forget the world? Analysis By using simplistic diction such as 'lay here' and 'forget the world' the message is very easily transferred. Everyone in the world has experienced the small pleasure of simply laying down and zoning away into their own imagination. By bringing this scenario into the song, the audience can think about how nice it would be to have that feeling with someone they loved or cared for right beside them, creating happy romantic emotions. Allowing yourself the joy of simply being happy in the one moment of pure peace and simplistic romance with the person you love. About the band.
