  1. 1. Unit 29 – Music Video Production Music Video Analysis Worksheets Music Video Analysis - Gender Roles Song Title: Wrecking Ball Artist: Miley Cyrus 1. What are the men/women doing? (Dancing, sitting, swimming, etc.) Miley cyrus (female) is dancing on a wrecking ball and breaking down walls 2. How are the men/women dressed? How much skin is revealed? She’s hardly wearing anything, just a crop top and knickers and then she’s wearing nothing except boots. 3. Are there more, fewer, or the same number of men as women? Only one women if you can even call her that 4. Describe the body language of the men/women: are they sitting, standing, gyrating, mugging, etc.? Her body language is very violent but calm 5. Do the men/women have power? How do you know? It’s as if she’s sending out a message to her partner that she’s in charge as she’s breaking down walls, but she’s also singing about being broken by her partner 6. What’s the message of the song? The message of the song is about a partner who destroyed her, but Miley couldn’t resist sexualizing the emotional, serious message as much as possible. What starts off as a sad song with a close up of Miley shedding a tear turns into a bunch of visual, sexual innuendo which doesn’t relate to the single at all: The licking of a sledgehammer, riding nude on a wrecking ball, and forcefully turning to show her backside are all seen in the video. What could’ve been a nice way to play mature Miley turned into another attempt at grabbing attention. 7. What type of music is the song? Pop
  2. 2. Unit 29 – Music Video Production Music Video Analysis Worksheets Music Video Analysis - Race Song Title: Hold on, we’re going home Artist: Drake ft. Majid Jordan 1.

What’s the message of the song? The girl that Drake’s talking to only plays coy as a tactic to get guys hooked onto her; but Drizzy’s worked out that this is an act, and points out that she acts like she wants him and gives him teasing peeks of her wild side when they’re together. And Drake and the girl are going “home” meaning they are going to be themselves around each other and put down the facade. They are going to be true with each other and take a chance with love. 6. What type of music is the song? Rap and R&B

Long term, homosexual relationship, serious 6. What’s the message of the song? This song is about supporting gay rights and even though not everyone does it does not mean that something is wrong with you. Love is love, no one can tell you who you can love and no one can tell you who can't love. This song represents that. Not all religions supports gay marriage and not everyone does, but that does not mean you should hide the fact that you are gay/ les. The verses are about 2 men loving each other, but the chorus is about 2 women loving each other. 7. What type of music is the song? Rap
