Listening Log Week One

Song: Paid My Dues by NF


Three Phrases That Strike Me:

They get paid for trashin’ people, I get paid ’cause I stay workin’

“… you really gotta dig in your heart if you wanna get to the root of an issue”

“Just remember though, I’m only a man, I’m a human being.”


Those lines strikes me because they have a very deep message. I feel like many people go through different things in life, they are being criticized, they are being affected by social media, and etc.


Three Repetitions:

“Paid my dues, made it through”

“Spread the news, I need some room”

“Thought we’d cool Well, don’t assume, don’t assume”


Two Changes That I’ve Noticed:

One of the changes I noticed in the music is that the beat builds up as it gets to the chorus.

Another change that I noticed is the song starts from the piano and goes to a hard beat.
