Topic: Write about the way that music has influenced you over time. It may just come down to you writing about particularly important or meaningful songs in your life and then explaining the role in the songs played in your development as a young adult. It could also be an explanation of how a particular genre of music has influenced you—when you think about the music you listen to, are you attracted to particular themes or issues that typically are discussed in the lyrics? Or has one band or a few bands played a particularly important role in your life thus far? Any of these approaches will work— your job, though, is to make sure that you are not only are examining the songs but also the influence and effect the music may have had on you as you’ve grown up.
Requirement: Double spaced, 4-5 pages.
