“All It Takes Is The Chorus” 1. The intro starts off the essay in an interesting way. It tells a short story that captured my interest right away. I especially liked the effect of changing the perspective from third person to first person when it gets into the body paragraphs. The second paragraph could also serve as the intro, but it would not have the contrast effect. This is actually a two paragraph intro. The thesis statement, which is at the end of the second paragraph, uses the three prong approach. I like the way that the essay is organized into three main body paragraphs, each paragraph discussing a different song. The conclusion wraps up the essay well by restating the three songs that were important to the author, which were “I’ll Be”, “Sk8er Boi”, and “Wonderwall.” 2.

The short story in the beginning was depressing, then the next part totally changes mood to a happier time in her life. After that, it goes back to another sad story. If the second and third paragraphs would have been switched around, then it would stay too long in the negative parts. The contrast from different moods keeps the essay from focusing on the negative parts for a long time. Whether she meant it or not, the arrangement of paragraphs is pure genius....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
