The Songs Lyrics History
Song lyrics are known since the very beginning of song writing in ancient times. Mayan people have written lyrics on stones, for songs dedicated to gods and performed on rituals. Then in ancient Egypt lyrics have been found on papyrus sheets which represented songs that ancient pharaohs wanted to listen, and also song lyrics dedicated to Amon Ra the Egyptian god of the sun. Many song lyrics are now interpreted and translated to English or other languages and the originals writings are kept in museums around the world.
Song lyrics have taken their special place since the ending of the Baroko and special attention has been given since then. The Lyrics revolution appears with the fast development of technology where music has gained a special place in every culture. The early 60es, 70es and 90es bring the first lyrics that people actually paid special attention on, since they represented the emotional adventures, the life experience etc. Love has gained a special place in song lyrics since it's descriptions, stories and adventures are an enormous source of experience and inspiration.
With the appearance of computers, internet, mp3 players etc, lyrics have made yet another revolution in song writing and music it's self. Since the music is developing really fast and the number of different style is constantly increasing, lyrics again become more like one with the music and sometimes are hard to understand or remember.

Have you listened to Muse’s “Survival,” the song that has been picked as the official song of the 2012 London Summer Olympic Games? It’s… epic. It really is just an epically awesome piece of music that was designed so perfectly to capture the spirit of the world’s largest sporting event.
The lyrics are perfect. They seem so obvious, like many artists would shy away from them to avoid being cliché but Muse isn’t worried about that. This Olympic opera is so unique in every other way that these very straightforward words just get right to the point. It’s bold and has some absolutely incredible guitar riffs throughout but, more importantly, it works in so many ways. The band can just rock this song out at one of the ceremonies. The instrumental parts are perfect for those athlete bio moments or for heading to a commercial break. Matt Bellamy singing “I’m Gonna Win” is absolutely amazing for those highlights where they show the athletes throwing their arms up in the air in triumph. It’s perfect. It really is.
The video is pretty good, too. It really shows how this song can be used to represent the experience for the competitors. I love how they went back through the history of the Games and also showed clips from all different time periods. Really, the London Olympic committee did a great job by picking an edgy band like Muse for this all-important task. Can you think of an Olympic song that actually tops this? I can’t.
