So for my English project I have to pick five terms from the list below and pick a song, that is school appropriate, that demonstrate the terms. I really need help I cannot think of one song that hasn't been taken already by my classmates. So if you could please help me. :)

The terms;
Alliteration, allusion, analogies, ballad, climax, dialect, dialogue, direct characterization, dynamic character, elegy, idiom, indirect characterization, inference, interlinear rhyme, irony, metaphor, mood, ode, parallel episodes, parallel structure, plot, point of view, resolution, rhyme scheme, setting, simile, sonnet, static character, subplot, symbolism, theme, and tone.
You!

    Nicki Minaj "Moment for Life" has several metaphors. see

    "Don’t worry bout me and who I fire
    I get what I desire it’s my empire
    And yes I call the shots I am the umpire
    I sprinkle holy water upon a vampire

    And this very moment I’m king
    This very moment I slay Goliath with a sling,
    This very moment I bring
    Put it on everything that I will retire with the ring"

    it's too bad flashback isn't on that list because I was gonna say Love Story by Taylor Swift. haha..we're learning a lot of the same stuff. what grade are you in?

    A great example of a song that contains a lot of metaphors is River of Dreams by Billy Joel. I'd give it a listen xD
