“Describe a piece of music and what it means to you.


“Five Years Time” – Noah and the Whale

The thing I love about this song, is that it sounds so cheerful and cute, but the lyrics really don’t match the mood it is setting. Without looking at the lyrics, I can imagine a cheerful, happy day, where a couple are going out on a trip, maybe even having a picnic in a park. I imagine a young couple because of the whistling and the use of the xylophone. The music gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling. On the other hand, if I take into account the lyrics, I feel a very mixed reaction. The bland, positive singing does not suit the words they are saying, and that’s what makes this piece so interesting and fun to listen to.
