My Favorite Lyrics

Have you ever heard and song and a particular lyric stood out to you right away?  I think all of us have had the feeling at least once.  For this assignment use one of those lyrics that stood out to you and make it into a visual.  Use some kind of background that represents the lyric and place the lyrics over it in some way.  Be creative! But make sure that your visual product evokes the same kind feeling that the lyric of the song does.

Music has always been one of the most important things in my life.  However, I am not musically inclined which hurts my soul everyday. My parents don’t listen to country music which I truly discovered in high school and fell in love with.  To this day my father still asks when my “country music phase” will be over.  I have just found country music to be the most story telling of the genres of music, which I truly appreciate. It has always been so easy for me to connect songs to certain situation or memories, which is why when Springsteen by Eric Church first hit the radio waves I fell in love.  It is the ultimate summer anthem that makes you nostalgic every time you hear it, which is ironic considering it talk about how all types of music brings up memories.

I chose my favorite lyric from Springsteen to portray in an image. Considering the song Springsteen is supposed to be set at a concert I figured a concert image would be the best to chose to accompany the lyrics. I downloaded a black and white image of a concert from the internet.

I uploaded the concert photograph to Canva.com

I went to the text menu and selected a text style I wanted the photograph.

I changed the text color to red.

I copied the text of the work Melody to change to Memory.

From the Text Menu I inserted a smaller subheading text.

I copied the subheading text to do the lyric before melody and before memory.  I changed the font to Great Vibes.

I upped the font size of the smaller text to make it more proportionate.

I then adjusted the location of everything on the page.

The final thing I did was add the title Springsteen through the text menu to the lower right hand corner of the page.

And because how could I leave it out? Here’s Springsteen!
