18 spoken-word songs from artists that usually sang - A.V. Club Milwaukee

18 spoken-word songs from artists that usually sang - A.V. Club Milwaukee | Beowulf | Scoop.it
1. Pearl Jam, “I’m Open”Nothing rides the pretentiousness line for rock bands quite like a spoken-word track, but Pearl Jam’s “I’m Open”—from 1996’s widely underloved No Code—falls mostly on the right side of it.
Thomas Anderson, MLS's insight:

How is the spoken word changed by the addition of music to fit the mood or tone of the text?

Can you imagine the music that might fit with the words of the epic poet reciting Beowulf?

Thomas Anderson, MLS's insight:

From the text of the article: "Similar but simpler openwork beaded-wire pendants are known from late 6th-and early 7th-century Anglo-Saxon graves, mainly from Kent." 


Write a description of this item and imagine the words of Hrothgar as he gifts this pendant to a warrior for some service rendered to the king.
