Music Project

Music Project
The project is worth up to $5,000 in extra credit. You may complete ONE movie
project OR ONE music project, but NOT BOTH.
Deadline: end of the last class before Thanksgiving Break. No late projects will be
You must supply an original song (on a burned CD) or a music video (on CD) from
one of the songs below to be eligible for credit.
If you cannot supply an original song or a music video from the list below you
should do the movie project instead.
Directions: One typed page (or less). Discuss the economic concept and why the song
demonstrates that principle. I encourage you to be creative and to identify a song that you
think future classes would be interested in hearing or seeing (video).
