Figurative Language

Good evening! I apologize for not getting a post up sooner.  Please forgive me.

Today we talked more about figurative language by watching the videos from the previous posts and listening to the song "Barbed Wire and Roses."

For 5 points of extra credit, leave a comment telling about a simile or metaphor (or other type of figurative language) from a song you've heard recently or from a book you've been reading.

You need to include the TITLE of where the figurative language came from, the EXAMPLE, and what you think it MEANS.

Remember, this is EXTRA CREDIT, not required.  If you get it wrong, at least you tried; it doesn't count against you.



  1. "I came in like a wrecking ball" song:wrecking ball by miley cyrus. it means that she went full force into a relation ship an example could be "he knocked every thing in his way like a wrecking ball

  2. ''Irony'' by Alanis Morrisette- "an old man turned ninety-eight and won the lotery and died the next day" Its a free ride that you've already paid. This means that something finally good happens and then the opposite occurs.

  3. "Life is a highway" by Rascal Flatts the metaphor is "Life's a highway" and it means life is a long journey

  4. amimals by maroon 5 it says "just like animals which is a similie

  5. ''Cheerleader'' By: Omi

    SMILIE: ''she grants my wishes like a genie in a bottle'' I think this means that she is everything he likes in a girl. She checks every box for him.

    METAPHOR: ''cause I'm the wizard of love'' I think this means that he has some magical power when it comes to love. He gets girls easy and knows what they like.
