8d. Visual Associations

Sublime - Date Rape

This song creates visual associations in the mind, images that you expect to see in the music video.
The fast drums (hi-hat) make you think of the story being told is quick and snappy, the instruments also give a happy feel to the song so you would expect to see the characters happy.
Most of the song is sung to you in a story way which helps you imagine what is happening in the story. The guitar solo helps you imagine that it the part of the song where it goes wrong for the woman. as it carries on after by singing "he finished up, he started the car"

All of the visual association helps you to sympathize for the woman and despise the "Date raper"
