Songs Not Covered

8 Feb

Here is a link to the most recent draft of the syllabus. In the event of a campus shutdown, things will change.

I meant for us to discuss how these two songs communicate meaning through semiotic vocabulary, but it turns out that turning a room of 35 into a room of 24 took longer than anticipated. As you listen to these songs see if you can use some of terms we reviewed to talk about how these songs index their respective places.

Mos Def, “Ghetto Rock” (2004)

The Pussycat Dolls and A.R. Rahman, “Jai Ho (You Are My Destiny)” (2009)
