NOTES abd ting 1NOTES abd ting 2


The key is in B minor. I think the choice of the tonality of the song give it an uplifting tone that is powerful and moving. Throughout the song the melody continues to rise and fall. Between each of the verses, the melody minutely varies but not often. Furthermore, the chorus’ also have a melody line that doesn’t seem to drastically change. The uplifting melody and chords, reflects the tone of the song that discusses the bitter sweetness of growing up, moving on and missing home.
