Michael Buble – “Haven’t Met You Yet”


Rhythm: The piano in the beginning of the music tells just that there are 4 beats per measure, thus the rhythm is a duple meter.  Later other instruments such as the drums and bass help us keep track of the beat and tempo.  At 1:43 we can hear the tempo increase.  The speed of the beats can be described as andante.

Timbre / Instrumentation: The music is bright, lively, positive, and clear. You can hear all the different instruments playing.  The music is upbeat and light.  We can hear  the piano, drums, bass, strings, trumpet, and guitar.

Melody: the music has a major scale, which helps create the feeling of joy and positivity.  The melody has a high frequency, the rate at which the pitches move is closer together. The vocal is the main melody while the other instruments are accompaniments up.

Harmony:  All the instruments work harmoniously with the singer’s voice. We can hear modulation at 0:48, 1:42, 2:16.  There are plenty of modulations and at 2:15 we can hear consonance.

Dynamics: The music is generally laying in mf, but during the climax points the dynamic changes to f.  

Texture: Since there is just one melody with several accompaniments, then the texture of the music is homophonic. You can hear arpeggio at 2:48 – 3:00.

Form: This song has a rondo form where it has 5 parts.  Although, there are a lot of repetition there are also many changes in the music.

    The piano in this song is my favorite song. It’s what I think makes it so catchy because its so simple and so pronounced and its what you end up tapping your foot to when you listen to this song.

    This is very positive song, I really enjoyed listening to it! I would say though that this song has ternary form, that consists of 3 sections. There is not much contrasting music, and the third section repeats the first one. The piano plays the same notes as in the first part.
