Transcript of Song-a-logues

Song-a-logs
First Person vs. Narrative Mode
First-person is where a story is narrated by one character at a time, speaking for and about themselves.

Narrative is where the author of a literary, theatrical, cinematic, or musical story uses "he, she or they" to convey the plot to the audience. Often quoting what other characters say.
Assignment
Choose a song whose lyrics tell a story
(You can choose either first person or narrative format)

It should be something you connect to

Just like with Eleanor Rigby , It should have highs and lows, though you don't have to move on every line. Just portray the emotion.

It should NOT be the same pace or rhythm as
the original song.

It must be memorized.
Lyrics
The lyrics of songs tell a story.

They introduce characters and situations

Think of a song whose lyrics connect to you, songs you know by heart.

You are going to present one song to the class as a monolgue or a "song-a-log"
Characters
As an actor you play a character

Each character should have an objective. You advance toward or retreat from.

Where are they going what are they trying to accomplish? What is their story?
Performance Portfolio
You must turn in a typed copy of script/song.
It must include the title of the song, the artist who originally preformed the song, and the songwriter.
Yesterday
Artist: The Beatles
Songwriters: Lennon/McCartney

Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away
Now it looks as though they're here to stay
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Suddenly, I'm not half the man I used to be
There's a shadow hanging over me.
Oh, yesterday came suddenly

Why she had to go I don't know she wouldn't say
I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Why she had to go I don't know she wouldn't say
I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Jailhouse Rock
Artist: Elvis Presley
Songwriters: Leiber and Stoller

The warden threw a party in the county jail
The prison band was there and they began to wail
The band was jumpin' and the joint began to swing
You should've heard them knocked-out jailbirds sing

Let's rock; everybody, let's rock
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock

Spider Murphy played the tenor saxophone
Little Joe was blowin' on the slide trombone
The drummer boy from Illinois went crash, boom, bang
The whole rhythm section was the purple gang

Let's rock; everybody, let's rock
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock

Number forty-seven said to number three
"You're the cutest jailbird I ever did see
I sure would be delighted with your company
Come on and do the Jailhouse Rock with me"

Let's rock; everybody, let's rock
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock

Sad sack was sittin' on a block of stone
Way over in the corner weepin' all alone
The warden said, "Hey, buddy, don't you be no square
If you can't find a partner, use a wooden chair"

Let's rock; everybody, let's rock
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock

Shifty Henry said to Bugs, "For Heaven's sake
No one's lookin'; now's our chance to make a break"
Bugsy turned to Shifty and he said, "Nix, nix
I want to stick around a while and get my kicks"

Let's rock; everybody, let's rock
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock

Dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock

Think about what we did as a class with Eleanor Rigby.

Did it help you understand the ups and downs of a monologue or a piece of dialogue?

If you are doing a song that is a narrative choose one character and write a letter to another character that is mentioned.

You need to restructure your song into paragraph form.
