Transcript of Metaphors and Similes

MULAN
• Contains two words that rhyme, which are at the end of the 4th and 7th lines

• ‘mysterious as the dark side of the moon’ is a connotation

• Became well known due to Pink Floyd’s song ‘dark side of the moon’

• ‘raging fire’- personification

• Similes demonstrate attributes on how to ‘be a man’

• Metaphors resonate by using adjectives like ‘force’ and ‘strength’

• Appeals to the younger audience by using words they understand
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
pinocchio
INTRODUCTION
for this assignment, we decided to look into similes and metaphors in songs, but we have also been discussing other figurative language such as personification, onomatopoeia, alliteration and rhyming patterns.

We looked at four different movies produced by disney, and a song from each: mulan, pinocchio, frozen and beauty and the beast. tHEN, WE ANALYSED AND COMPARED OUR OWN TWO SONGS WITH EACH OTHER.
Metaphors and Similes
• Rhyming pattern where the last word in the first two lines rhyme with each other, except the third verse

• No metaphors throughout the song

• Whole of third verse is personification

• One simile found in the song

• 'Wish upon a star,' is a cliche

• Appealing to younger audiences because it is short and catchy

• Also appealing to those of older ages because of its use of similes and rhyming patterns

MULAN - BE A MAN

Chorus:

Be a man
We must be swift as the coursing river
Be a man
With all the force of a great
typhoon
Be a man
With all the strength of a raging fire
Mysterious as the dark side of the
moon
- connotation

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST- ""

Tale as old as time
Tune as old as
song
Bittersweet and
strange
Finding you can
change
Learning you were
wrong
Certain as the sun
Rising in the
east
Tale as old as
time
Song as old as
rhyme
Beauty and the
Beast

Similes and metaphors help to link song lyrics together

'Let it Go’ from the Disney movie ‘frozen’ is popular because the lyrics and the tune are easy to remember and similes, metaphors and personification. All these writing tools help the song become easier to remember.

‘with all the force of a great typhoon ‘ gives the listening audience more detail of just how much strength is needed to ‘be a man’, instead of just saying ’a lot of strength’
frozen - let it go

Let it go, let it go
I am one with the wind and

sky
Let it go, let it go
You'll never see me
cry
Here I stand
And here I stay
Let the storm rage on

My power flurries through the air into the
ground
My soul is spiraling in
frozen fractals
all
around
And one thought crystalizes like an icy
blast
I'm never going back,
The past is in the
past

Let it go, let it go
When I'll rise like the break of
dawn
Let it go, let it go
That perfect girl is
gone
Here I stand in the light of
day
Let the storm rage on,
The cold never bothered me
anyway

PINOCCHIO - WHEN YOU WISH UPON A STAR

When you

wish upon a
star
Makes no difference who you
are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you

If your heart is in your
dream
No request is too
extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do

Fate is kind
She brings to those to love
The sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longing

Like a bolt out of the
blue
Fate steps in and sees you

through
When you
wish upon a star
Your dreams come
true
• 'Let it go,' is now a widely used saying because of the movie, 'Frozen'

• No constant rhyming pattern, but rhymes still found throughout the song

• 'I am one with the wind and sky,' metaphor meaning you are one entity with the wind and sky

• Not many metaphors used which means they are more powerful when they have been

• 'When I'll rise like the break of dawn,' simile meaning your self esteem is improving. Also when dawn breaks, the sun always rises in the sky

• Movie aimed at children 4-8, but able to be enjoyed by anyone

• Ever a surprise- metaphor (the love is a surprise)
