Transcript of Where is the love?

Where is the love?
By Black Eyed Peas

Message
This song contains powerful messages that we should all be aware of. Our society has been getting worst each day. It talks about how hatred and violence can escalate to take power in our surroundings. The interesting fact about the song is that each rapper interprets what they feel is wrong with world in their own verses. Will.i.am talks about terrorism and hate. We keep forgetting that The Bloods, The Crips and The KKK are freely roaming around USA while others focus on bombing Iraq. Taboo discusses about how we're not respecting each other, stating that if we never know the truth, then we'll never seek love. In able to maintain a good relationship, honesty and respect are two good things to have. Lastly, Apl.de.ap discusses about selfishness. Money has been one of the issues that's making people turn their backs against each other. For me, "Where is the love?" refers to "Where is God?" reason being is most of the people think he's not there when we suffer, but the truth is he's always there no matter what.
History
Black Eyed Peas began in the late 1980's. Little did we know, will.i.am and apl.de.ap were childhood friends and enjoyed rapping together ever since the 8th grade. Later on, Taboo joined them and created a trio. They started practicing non stop, until their passion for rapping paid off and by 1997, the Black Eyed Peas earned a record deal with Interscope. In 2001, female singer Fergie joined. It has been said that this song was based on 9/11 2 years before the song was released, but it was also based on the issues USA had been going through with the gangs, wars, government hypocrisy, and racism.

Introduction
"Where is the love" sung by Black Eyed Peas featuring Justin Timberlake. This song contains various of themes that are related to Human Rights, such as terrorism, propaganda, racism, war, intolerance and greed. It tells us how our world is becoming without love, the real genuine love. It clarifies the issues that has been making our world into a place where it's mainly about war, money and lies by the government. Lastly, once you carefully listen to the song it will open your naive eyes. You will learn to share love with everyone who needs it.

Pictures
A visual representation of " Negative images is the main criteria, Infecting their young minds faster than bacteria. Kids wanna act like what they see in the
cinema.
"Father Father Father help us, send some guidance from above."
"People killing, people dying. Children hurtin you hear them crying"
There are two types of genre this song would be categorized in, which are rap and pop . It's very appealing to the youth especially because of the lyrics and the beat. The beat goes really fast when Will.i.am, Apl.de.ap and Teebo are rapping, but it slows down when Fergie starts singing the chorus. What I love about this song is that it's forte (loud) which makes it exciting and make me want to dance. I would say this song contains a lot of appealing qualities. The lyrics are catchy, the beat is very uplifting to hear, and has a very powerful message.
Nations droppin' bombs
Personification

If love and peace are so strong

Father, Father, Father help us
An Allusion to God
Send some guidance from above

I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder
Hyperbole

Yo', whatever happened to the values of humanity
Rhyme
Whatever happened to the fairness and equality
Instead of spreading love we're spreading animosity
Lack of understanding, leading us away from unity
