The Lazy Song By: Bruno Mars
About Bruno Mars
A brief description about him: Bruno Mars has received two Grammy Awards and was named one of Time Magazine's 100 most influential people in the world, in 2011. He also received so many awards throughout his career. In 2014, he was named artist of the year by Billboard. He is "considered" on of the best artist in the world with over 11 million albums and 68 singles.
Meaning—What is the song’s deeper meaning (not just the surface meaning)? What is the songwriter trying to tell the audience? What is the author’s purpose for writing it? Does the song tell a story? Does it address certain emotions or issues?

The Lazy Song
Choice—Identify the song and performer/composer. Why do you like this song? Out of all the songs you listen to, what is it about this song that made you choose it for analysis? Do you admire the performer? Do you like other songs by the same performer?

This song is by Bruno Mars and it's called the lazy song, but he is not the only one writing this song. There are other musicians writing this song like: K'naan, Philipp Lawrence and Ari Levin. I like this song because when I'm lazy I know I'm not the only one. I usually listen to this song in the morning because usually when I wake up, I want to go back to sleep again because I'm too lazy to get up.
I actually don't listen to this song all the time, because I like other songs too but when I listen to this song, it's too catchy to stop listening to it because there are so many repeated lines.
I like listening to Bruno Mars songs, in fact some of his songs that I like are:
Locked out of Heaven, Lighters, Treasure, It will rain, Young Wild and Free,
Billionaire and Somewhere in Brooklyn.
Fact: The Lazy song has 672,116,348 hits so far.

Conclusion
At the start before making this song, Bruno Mars wanted to make the best song in history, but in the end the song sucked so he made a song about that he doesn't want to do anything anymore. This is exactly what he said: "That song just came out of the studio. We were trying to make a song that was better than the Beatles. We were trying to be magical and historic. After five hours, it all turned to rubbish. The frustration got to me and I said, 'Today I don't feel like doing anything at all.' That opened up everyone's eyes. When you're overshooting, you get the worst work. When you're relaxed, you have your best. I'm a light kind of guy."- Bruno Mars. As you can all see, he didn't think he will make the Lazy song at the start.
Music and lyrics- How does the instrumental music reinforce the meaning of the lyrics? How does the music affect the overall tone or mood of the song? Is it angry and loud? Sad and subdued? What instruments are used? Why these instruments?

In this song, Bruno Mars has used the intrumental guitar. Right from the start you can hear it play it's beat. But throught the song in the middle, he used the drums. He plays such a stable and simple beat. (Bruno Mars used the most simple beat in the world; I don't know what's it called but it goes like boom, boom ch) I think that maybe Bruno Mars did that on purpose to describe how lazy he is because usally song writers want to make something big, and hard for more people to enjoy and to start listening to the song.
I'm choosing a song that comes from 12 songs in an album called "Doo-Woops and Hooligans".
This song can describe a variety of people in our class; (ex.. Kyle.. and Syrus..) I'm joking.. But it's a very good song to listen to, it's called the lazy song.
Devices and Terms—What poetic devices are used within the lyrics? Look for the devices that we’ve been talking about in class (similes, repetition, alliteration, etc.) On the copy of the song lyrics underline, circle, or somehow note each device that is used. In your presentation, refer to each of the devices by naming the line number in which they appear. Your goal is to find 6 of these poetic devices in the song you chose.

Repetition: "Today I don't feel like doing anything, I just wanna lay in my bed"
In this song, the song writer sings this line 4 times in the song,which makes it repetition.

Repetition: "Nothing at all ooh, ooh, ohh.... (ect)
In this line it's played 3x during the song, which we can call repetition.

Euphony: A Euphony is a series of musically pleasant sounds, conveying a sense of harmony and beauty to the language.
"I'll be lounging on the couch, just chilling in my snuggie"

Rhyme: "I'm gonna kick my feet up then stare at the fan, turn the TV on, throw my hand in my pants".
In this line that Bruno Mars used is quite clever, because it uses rhyming words and makes the listener, wanting to listen more. (Fan~pants= rhyme)

Allusion: Is something that refers to a person for example: "Tomorrow I'll wake up, do some P90X meet a really nice girl".







Today I don't feel like doing anything
I just wanna lay in my bed
Don't feel like picking up my phone
So leave a message at the tone
'Cause today I swear I'm not doing anything.

Uh!
I'm gonna kick my feet up
Then stare at the fan
Turn the TV on, throw my hand in my pants
Nobody's gonna tell me I can't

I'll be lounging on the couch,
Just chillin' in my snuggie
Click to MTV, so they can teach me how to dougie
'Cause in my castle I'm the freaking man

Oh, yes I said it
I said it
I said it 'cause I can

Today I don't feel like doing anything
I just wanna lay in my bed
Don't feel like picking up my phone
So leave a message at the tone
'Cause today I swear I'm not doing anything

Nothing at all!
Ooh, hoo, ooh, hoo, ooh, ooh-ooh
Nothing at all
Ooh, hoo, ooh, hoo, ooh, ooh-ooh

I might mess around, and get my college degree
I bet my old man will be so proud of me
But sorry pops, you'll just have to wait
Haha

Oh, yes I said it
I said it
I said it 'cause I can

Today I don't feel like doing anything
I just wanna lay in my bed
Don't feel like picking up my phone
So leave a message at the tone
'Cause today I swear I'm not doing anything

No, I ain't gonna comb my hair
'Cause I ain't going anywhere
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
I'll just strut in my birthday suit
And let everything hang loose
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Ooh
Today I don't feel like doing anything
I just wanna lay in my bed
Don't feel like picking up my phone
So leave a message at the tone
'Cause today I swear I'm not doing anything

Nothing at all
Ooh, hoo, ooh, hoo, ooh, ooh-ooh
Nothing at all
Ooh, hoo, ooh, hoo, ooh, ooh-ooh
Nothing at all
