I think this song belongs to 90’s.The style of

this song is the same.The two songs melody and

feeling is also similar.It’s comfortable while I

listening to this song.

It’s a melody song.When I listen to this song, i

probably can see the past people’s life.It has

cherished matters which were happened.

Is this a love song?

I think the singer’s outfit is belongs to The Sixties, because he trying to look perfect, neat, tidy .These are the characteristics of Mod trend. He also wear a suit, same as Elect book’s The Sixties boy model. The song looks like The Sixties too. So I think this is belongs to The Sixties.

This song belongs to the nineties.All the singers and musical instrument players in this video were dressed very casual, The main colour of their clothes were either black or white instead of bright colours. These are some of the features of fashion in the nineties. In the video of ‘If You Leave Me Now’, the people had long brightly dyed hair, it was the style of punk rockers in the seventies. I think there is a big different between the fashion styles of this two decades because I felt much more comfortable and relaxed when I saw the singers and heard ‘Hard To Say I’M Sorry’ than the time when I saw the people in the video of ‘If You Leave Me Now’. Finally, I want to say that this is a great song with soft and smooth melody, I love this kind of songs.

Because of I can’t submit my work in
`If you leave me now by Chicago'(When I submit it, It reply `Duplicate comment detected; it looks as though you’ve already said that!’). Therefore, I submit my work here. Hope you don’t mind it.

The melody of this song is very nice. I love that. By watching this video, I know that it is belong to 70’s .They did not wear ripped jeans or torn t-shirt so they could not show the style of punk rockers. Beside, they prefer long hair.

This is a song of 70’s(actually I don’t know it is 70’s and 80’s because at the start of the song it says that the song is released in 1982).As the “uncles” shows some charateristics of HIPPIE.They wear punk clothes.

i thought the style of the song may be is 90’s.
But i hadn’t listened to 90’s music before so i can’t confirm which decade of the song.

after i listening this song , i felt tired and sad although this song ‘s lyrics is good and melody is so soft.

I think this song is belongs to a nineties style.Because the clothes whick are wore by the songers are like nineties.And the colour of the clothes are black and white.So that I think this song is nineties style!But this song is so light and smooth.So I don’t very like this song.

I think this song belongs to 80’s.The clothes of the singer isn’t similar with the film in 90’s. Besides the style of the song and the way that the singer give me a old fashion and feel.
Their clothes are V-deep and without sleeve.I like this sing,because i’m similar to the singer who hesitate and… to say sorry to sb

I think this song is belong to 80’s. In 80’s, fashion are masculine or boyish. Men wore ‘power suit’ at that time. In this song, people were wearing leather suit. They want to had a powerful look. So that, I think this song is belong to 80’s.

Comment by Elaine2c35

This song belongs to 80’s because it shows 1982 at the beginning. I think this is the time the song released. The singers worn suits and leather jackets.The pianist worn tank top and bright coloured jeans. They were casual. They had brightly dyed hair which gel tightly and smoothly.

Comment by chloe

This song is belong to 90’s .because the man in the video wear more casual style. The song ‘if you leave me’ is belong to 70’s .They are not the same.The three man in this sang very good. i like the melody of this sing. It make me felt very comfortable.

Comment by Katrina (2C 25)

This song must be in the 80’s, it shows in the beginning of the song (release’82). I don’t know other people said that it belongs to 90’s. The man in the middle may be is a bit like 90’s.I think the other two people are the 60’s.They wear the Italian suit. This song sang in 1982, so it must be the 80’s. The things that they wear are not important. This song sang in 1982 so I must right!
This must be done it by me. This is not easy to copy this homework for other people and not easy to let me copy too.

Comment by WONG HANG TAT

It was belong to eighties. The outfit of them were similar to the eighties people. I like this song very much. I have heard this song long time ago. The lyrics were meaningful. Although they belong to eighties, I think their hair style was still stay in seventies!

Comment by Wong Hiu Fu 2c (36)

By watching this video, I think it belongs to 90’s. Their style is similar because all the clothes is white and black. This is a lyric song. The melody is so soft. I like it very much. It makes me feel relaxed.
I think their accord done well. This is one of the reason that makes admire.

Comment by agatha

this song is belonged to eighties (80’s). i love this song because it is too soft and their (chicago) voice are magnetic. i love them because i love rockers very much. and i like their clothes matching– black and white, these two colours are contrast. wearing these clothes let them look more smart.
