This chapter tries to show how analysis—in-depth exploration of a song in all of its aspects—can be informed and enriched by the theoretical framework presented in previous chapters, allowing us to appreciate more fully how a song follows or departs from stylistic norms. The chapter presents analyses of six songs: Marvin Gaye, “I Heard It through the Grapevine”; Elton John, “Philadelphia Freedom”; Fleetwood Mac, “Landslide”; U2, “Sunday Bloody Sunday”; Alanis Morissette, “You Oughta Know”; and Destiny’s Child, “Jumpin’ Jumpin’.”
