Advice about this topic
Although the musicians� intentions may in some cases be relevant to your analysis, they shouldn�t form the entirety of your discussion.
Your discussion may include the creators� intentions, your interpretations of the works, the interpretations of writers or musicologists in published literature, and / or the work�s reception history (as found in newspaper reviews, blogs, etc.), but you should clearly state which of these perspectives you�re using at any point.
And remember: you don�t get many marks for just having an opinion; rather, your success depends on providing evidence and arguments that convince the reader of your point of view.
You should talk about some music in specific detail, not just lyrics. Unlike the HSC, however, you don�t get any marks for including a musical quotation unless you provide a compelling analysis of it. And you don�t always need to include or refer to notation in order to talk about music. It is up to you to decide what evidence will best support your arguments: what would a reader find most convincing as you attempt to persuade them?
