Transcript of Romanticism and Transcendentalism in Music

Romanticism and Transcendentalism in Music
Brave by Sara Bareilles
This song really stands out because it is a strengthening song. The lyrics are an encouragement to speak your mind, and not to be quiet about your opinions. The element "Brave" contains is rebellion in Romanticism. Lyrics from the song showcasing this element are: "Say what you want to say and let the words fall out, honestly I want to see you be brave... Everybody's been stared down by the enemy, fallen for the fear... Bow down to the mighty... Don't run, stop holding your tongue..." What this is saying is that, yeah we have those people who don't like us, but we need to stand up and not let them push us around. We need to be brave, and stand out of the crowd.
Ghosts by Michael Jackson
In the song "Ghost" the element of romanticism is supernatural. Being that the person in who Michael is referring to is some what acting as a ghost; trying to ruin his family with out making it real obvious who is it. Lyrics also in the song include: "There's a rocking in the chair but there's no-one sitting there... Tell me are you the ghost of jealousy, the ghost of jealousy... There's a ghostly smell around, but nobody to be found..." Giving also, the supernatural feel. In the official music video ghosts are featured in it; also, the clothing worn in the music video appear to be from about the 1700s.
"Under the Sea" is a beloved children's song, but it isn't noticeable that Transcendentalism can be found in the song. Sebastian is trying to convince Ariel that the human world isn't as good as the ocean. By so he speaks of the natural surroundings in the ocean, and the different creatures.

The Phantom of The Opera
Although, personally I have never seen the Phantom of The Opera, it is obvious the Broadway musical is about a phantom. The elements found in the song is supernatural. For the phantom is there in the woman's sleep. Lyrics possessing the element include: "The phantom of the opera is there, inside my mind...Your/my spirit and my/your voice in one combined..." Also, with the phantom having a "possession" over the women claiming to be her as well is supernatural.
