Ok, here is the deal.

At school I have to make a presentation of a song and analyse the lyrics.
And since everyone else in my class are going to be playing boring songs, I want to stir things up with some metal. Hell Yeah!

So here are the requirements:

- Metal Song
- Max 4. min (yeah, my English teacher knows nothing about good music)
- Good lyrics, which dispels the stereotype of metal being just about violence (so "You Suffer" is not a valid song )

What are your suggestions?

Tiny Tim - Living in the sunlight.

Oh wait, maybe you don't "knows nothing about good music".

Since when has a song got to be over 4 minutes and/or metal to be good?

It doesn't have to be, he's just saying a lot of good music is.

I have just done EXACTLY the same thing at school. I did A Change of Seasons by Dream Theater, but I guess that's a bit over 4 minutes

wasted years - iron maiden - Awesome song

the lyrics in this song would probably give the right message for what you want to say aswell

Edit: just checked the track is 5 min long but seriously i think you can get away with it i mean show 'em a little of that metal rebellion.

^^ also cynic nice! listening to uroboric forms now

I'm sorry but the word is choose. 'Chose' is the past simple conjugation. You choose a song, you do not chose it.

Maybe he should do "I Choose" by the Offspring, just to remind him of this fact.

Seems nice. I've found lots of interesting interpretations of that song.

Absolutely. I'm guessing he was scared of me spending half of class by playing the full version of Voodoo Chile.

Umm, just to give you a impression, my class mates are playing techno and songs from Madagascar 2. I'm trying to be a little brutal here

No, I don't know any song called choose!
