This is an activity that I created for my American History class that can be done in the classroom or in the computer lab (need access to YouTube).
Students listen to 6 songs (titles listed below) and are to analyze the songs in a graphic organizer and then complete a reflection. They should be able to compare and contrast the lyrics/tones from some of the popular songs of the 1990s. Then I follow up the activity with a discussion about the music/tones/lyrics.
Lyric sheets are provided for each of the 8 (Included two extra songs - students still only have room on the chart for 6 songs) songs:
"Smells Like Teen Spirit" - Nirvana
"Jeremy" - Pearl Jam"
"Loser" - Beck
"Wonderwall" - Oasis
"Enter Sandman" - Metallica
"One Sweet Day" - Mariah Carey & Boyz II Men
"I'll Be Missing You" - Puff Daddy and Faith Evans
"Baby One More Time" - Britney Spears
