JIMMY EAT WORLD ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂThe MiddleÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ I chose ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂThe MiddleÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ by Jimmy Eat world for my assignment because it is one song in particular that always manages to make my mood (emotion) a little bit brighter.
For me it is a reminder to not let lifeÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂs little things get you down because, like the song says, everything is going to be all right. In the line ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂyour in the middle of the rideÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ ,ride is symbolic of lifeÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂs journey. The songs message is that you shouldnÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂt get so discouraged every time your feeling down because time always seems to have a way to heal almost everything.
ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ The emotions stemmed from hearing this song are dependant on the listener and the mood of that listener. If in life experiences that listener has found that everything wont be alright, this song may evoke emotions of resentment and sorrow. If the listener is in a bad mood and he or she takes the time to listen to the lyrics it could bring a little bit of happiness into their day.
If the listener chooses not to pay attention to the lyrics I believe this song would still have an emotional effect on them seeing how the entire vibe the band gives off excluding the lead singer is a sort of happy go lucky type feeling.
ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ ÃÂÃ I personally love this and as funny as it sounds, I often get the sense that IÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂm in a movie when driving in a car with friends blaring ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂThe MiddleÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ. I can only hope that the rest of the class will enjoy it as much as I do. I think it will be very interesting to hear the opinions of others and find out if this song possibly stirs up other emotions then the ones I have listed.
