Sign of the Times

Yes, I am a massive fan of Harry Styles and I’m not ashamed to admit it. When I saw that there was an assignment involving lyrics, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. The assignment was to find some background and put one of your favorite lyrics on it. This was from Harry’s first ad, before any of his new stuff was released, and I found it visually appealing with him wearing the dark clothes in a dark room and opening a door to a bright light. After this ad came out, he released his first single called Sign of the Times which he tried to write in the perspective of a dying mother who just gave birth and wants to give her child advice before she passes. The lyrics, “Welcome to the final show, hope you’re wearing your best clothes” really stood out to me. With the photo, I kind of see the dark and light representing death and birth. If you have not heard this song, I highly recommend it. The fact that there are over 73 million views should be an indicator that it’s worth 5 minutes and 41 seconds of your time.

This is for the My Favorite Lyric assignment that can be found in the ds106 assignment bank.
