One of my favorite type of assignments is audio! Lyrics and songs are great ways to tell stories. Have you notice similar themes extend genres… lyrics overlapping. Your task is to create a story by using audio snippets from songs. The trick is you have to have the last word of your clip, be the same word that starts the next clip. Use at least 5 different songs, try to include different genres or decades.

For this assignment I used these songs:
Haddaway – What is love
Nazareth – Love Hurts
Three Days Grace – Pain
KC and the Sunshine Band – Get Down Tonight
The Beatles – All You Need is Love
I used the program Audacity for this assignment. First I listened to the songs and picked which parts suited my needs. Then I trimmed the songs, and lined them up.
