The act of an artist doing a “cover” of another artist’s song is nothing unfamiliar to us. It has been occurring for quite some time. As new generations arise and new genres are being developed many artists turn back to the past for inspiration. There are hundreds of cover songs and some have been hits while others should have never been remade. People like songs that have been covered because they are familiar; it is a tune that they know, lyrics they can recite. The question being is why do artists let other artists remake their work? There is a chance that the cover version may become more famous that the original. That the cover version was so bad it turns people off from the original song. On the other hand why do artists want to cover another artist’s song? When an artist is doing a cover for a song the freedom is all their’s. They can completely manipulate the original lyrics to change the meaning. The artist has control and the opportunity to let their imagination create a brand new story with a song. Although it may not always be the intentions, when a cover song is made the message of the song is altered to a certain extent. The song “If I Were a Boy” was originally done by the R&B/soul artist Beyonce Knowles and wonderfully remade by Urban Country artist Reba McEntire. Once the genre changed from one artist to another the message of the song changed the strength of the woman but despite the difference in genre both artist depict their anger and frustration towards men and how they were hurt by a man. The song “If I were a Boy” was sung by two entirely different women with two different upbringings. Both Beyonce and Reba are well known for their outstanding performances and dramatic vocal cords. Beyonce has been single for most of her career dating her on again off again, now husband, Jay-Z. Throughout this time she was hurt by relationships and grew to be an independent woman with an outstanding career. Reba was married to Charlie Battles and then
In her song “If I Were a Boy,” Beyonce argues that many women are trapped in bad relationships and never take the time to question how they truly desire to be treated. To confirm this, Beyonce is attempting to look at her unhealthy relationship as if she were in her significant others shoes. She makes an effort to develop an understanding of what it is like to be the man in the relationship, and see how he can just passively mistreat a girl. Beyonce later discovers that she would treat others how….
If I Were A Boy Remix
Beyonce ft. Lee Carr
If I were a boy
Even just for a day
I'd roll oudda bed in the mornin'
And throw on what I wanted then go
Drink beer with the guys
And chase after girls
I'd kick it with who I wanted
And I'd never get confronted for it.
Cause they'd stick up for me.
If I were a boy
I think I could understand
How it feels to love a girl
I swear I'd be a better man.
I'd listen to her
Cause I know how it hurts
When you lose the one you wanted
in a Friday morning. I can’t wait for the weekend. Left my Xbox on last night, chips all over the room and dirty laundry everywhere. I get up take a shower, eat and get dressed. I pick whatever I find first thing on my dresser. After all those things, I usually play COD on my Xbox. I play with my friends and online gamers. It’s been 30 minutes since I started playing. Its 8:50am, I’m going to be late I thought while getting my shoes and bag on.
As I arrived at school, I went straight to my locker….

No matter where I was in school, my parents were always behind me. Most noticeably in my high school career; my mother and father always push me to my limits to achieve better, but that’s just the surface they always had time….
once a time when I escaped the hustles of the world. I found myself walking alone in a dark and lonely street. Trash was scattered everywhere and the street was filled with rats. I was deeply moved and saddened by the frightful sight. While I was walking down the street, I saw a boy. The boy had eyes similar to a jaguar’s but showed signs of depression; he was so thin that his bones were clearly outlined under his skin and his clothes were half torn, half worn. I approached the boy and asked, “Why….

The Prime minister of Nepal, a country of peace and tranquility, rules over corers of people and enjoys immense power as the defacto head of the nation compared to the president who is only a de jure or nominal head.

My first duty as Prime minister would be to form a capable and stable cabinet. I’d….
My name is Bubblegum and I was born in 1994. I am pink and I am just one crayon in a family of 16 magic scent crayons. As you may have guessed, I smell like delicious bubble gum. I was a favorite among girls and I have been used to color many beautiful flowers. Unfortunately my delicious smell led to my untimely death in 1995 because children liked to eat me.
As you can tell from the opening, Bubblegum is no longer available for comment. If I were a crayon I would choose to be Bubblegum because….

If I Were President
If I were president of Vietnam, I would change a series of recent laws. In my opinion, the most important thing that leads to the lives of happy residents is the laws. Of course, it must be a very strict law instead of a lax law which is not enforced
First of all, I would ban alcohol. As far as I know, most of the accidents and crimes are related to alcohol. The drunk are usually out of control and don’t know what they are doing. The other option would be people could drink….
