Probably don't use songs that have "belonging" or "belong" in their name - they are the most obvious and quite often very broad.

Try choosing a song that focuses on a certain aspect of belonging - like belonging to a family, land, a home, etc etc.

Hope that helps buddy.

I used The Guillotine by Escape the Fate. I got away with it but it requires a bit of picking.

How can you turn a song about halo into a related text for the concept of belonging? I'm trying to think but sorry i still cannot see it.

Metallica "The Unforgiven"

It's about how a bloke conforms to society's rules in order to belong, but in his old age when he reflects upon this, he is sad he did not live his own life.

Great song!!!!!!!!

fast cars- tracy chapman
some technques used are:
- shift in variation: starts offwith we than says you reffering to her boyfriend
- repetition: repeats be someone as she believes that when a person belongs they are someone, otherwise they are a nobody.
- remenising: remembers when her boyfriend and her felt they belong together and she was also happy.

another song is my island home- christine anu

small town boy- the bronski beat

every breath you take

and 'I dont wanna be' by gavin degraw

this land is mine, this land is me - paul kelly (off one night the moon)
the song is about an aborignal guy belonging to the land and a white guy having the land belong to him..... it would be a good song to choose and it's something no one else will think of doing and it's original and it's australian and it's from a legendary singer and thats about it.....
