song was released, it was originally a vinyl record, though it could also be heard as sound waves on the radio, and, today it can be experienced as an audio file on a computer. One can also locate video of Elvis performing it live. A person alive in the 1950s could have experienced the song live in person. This would be a different experience since he or she would have been surrounded by a lot of screaming fans. Music can be experienced in a variety of places, either socially (at a bar or diner) or alone, and what is going on around the listener at the time can affect the experience. Lastly, one can experience the song to some degree as a kind of poetry simply by reading the lyrics. some impact on your experience because even if you don’t know anything about the pyramids just seeing them would be a great experience. III. State your opinion on what you believe is the purpose of this artifact and the success of the creator in achieving the purpose. For instance, what message do you believe the creator is trying to express, and is that message successfully expressed? [You examined this in 2-3-1 Worksheet: Reasons for Creating Artifacts.] “All Shook Up” is intended to present the physical and mental state of being in love, one of the big themes of human existence. However, the main purpose of this song seems to have been to entertain and to earn money for the artists involved and the recording label, RCA.

This could be because it accurately captured the feeling of being in love and was therefore appealing to its audience, because the sound was catchy and danceable, or a combination of these things. Its success made money, and the song has remained well known until today, so its purposes continue to be fulfilled. The Pyramids were created as a burial ground for high ranking pharaohs. They were also created to store the pharaohs belongings after death with the mummified body. I believe the reason the pyramids were built so high was because it was meant to show power and how rich and popular the pharaoh was while alive. I believe the pharaohs achieved their goal at expressing the meaning when creating the pyramids. The pyramids are still standing centuries after they were built. IV.

    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.
