Analysis
We read the lyric.
The title is We Are the World.
It is a 1985 song written by Michael
Jackson and Lionel Richie,
produced and
conducted by
Quincy Jones
and recorded by a supergroup of
popular musicians billed as
“USA for AFRICA”.
The charity
single was
meant to
raise funds
to help
famine relief
efforts in
Ethiopia.
We read the text to
understand the message.
From the title we understood
the song would probably
invite people to come
together and to build one
world.
The idea of coming
together = allitteration
WE – WORLD.
“the world” and “we”
coincide.
When listening to the song
the listener can
understand that in the
structure of the song there
is a solo singer that is
follow by a choir of people
singing together.
The choir is made up of
lots of singers of different
genres of music, from rock
to blues.
The most immediate message
is one of unity, solidarity,
support in order to leave better
together in the world.
Further suggestions from song:
“must come together as one”,
“it is time to lend a hand to life”,
“we are all a part”,
“we’ll make a brighter day”.
Last but not least,
the song ends with 2
subjects pronouns,
significantly
“you and me”
wich means “us”.
The idea of a wide community is
expressed by the frequent use of long
vowel sounds.
The title
“We Are The World”
has not got any short vowel sound.
Syntax adds to meaning the runon line compells the singer
to sing all the stanza together.
