The band: Music and identity

Media Working Group Music and Identity

In the media working group band we made some reasearch on topic of music connected to queer identity and also other activities on the topic. Our work was not only about playing the instruments but also using music as a mean of political and personal expression. During the week we worked a lot but also enjoying the time we spent together.

We talked a lot about our personal experiences with coming out and we decided to rewrite the lyrics of Elton John`s „Your song“. Furthermore we picked a simple song „Let it be“ from the Beatles and rearange it in different musical genres (bossa nova, reggae, rock).

Our final performance will be presented as a parody of MTV music awards – adjusted to the queer easter topics. We hope you will all enjoy the show of our band „Let´s play“.

 

Lyrics of “Our Song”:

(Verse 1)

(M) It’s a little bit funny, this feeling inside
You know that I love you and I can no longer hide
I’m in love with this person

(F) Then why do you cry.
Tell me her name son, Mum it’s a guy

(M) For the first time I’m happy, I accept who I am
Try and understand this, I know that you can
I know it’s not much but it’s the best I can do
You’re the only girl in my life and so songs for you

(Chorus)

(M) And you can tell everybody, this is our song.
It may be quite simple but now that its done.
I know that you’ll find, I know that you’ll find.
Now I’ve put down in words.
How wonderful life is, while you’re in my world.

(Verse 2)

(M) I was unhappy and many times cried
The fact I was hiding and for so long I cried
But it’s about time I waited so long
For me to tell you that this is your son

(F) I’ll always be here I love you I do
You’ll always be my boy believe me its true
Any way the thing is what I really mean
Our love is the sweetest thing I’ve ever seen

(Chorus)

(M&F)    And you can tell everybody, this is our song.
It may be quite simple but now that its done.
I know that you’ll find, I know that you’ll find.
Now I’ve put down in words.
How wonderful life is, while you’re in my world.

I know that you’ll find, I know that you’ll find.
Now I’ve put down in words.
How wonderful life is, while you’re in my world.
