I FEEL GOOD

James Brown was a revolutionary musician and singer. He started his career in the 1960’s. He had a life full of scandals. He died in 2007. He made funk music very popular.

Look at the way he dances and moves his feet. Can you stay sit? Start dancing.

Sorry for the quality of the images. It’s a very old video.

I feel good

Whoa-oa-oa! I feel good, I knew that I would, now
I feel good, I knew that I would, now
So good, so good, I got you

Whoa! I feel nice, like sugar and spice
I feel nice, like sugar and spice
So nice, so nice, I got you

(sax)

When I hold you in my arms
I know that I can’t do no wrong
and when I hold you in my arms
My love won’t do you no harm

and I feel nice, like sugar and spice
I feel nice, like sugar and spice
So nice, so nice, I got you

(sax)

When I hold you in my arms
I know that I can’t do no wrong
and when I hold you in my arms
My love can’t do me no harm

and I feel nice, like sugar and spice
I feel nice, like sugar and spice
So nice, so nice, well I got you

Whoa! I feel good, I knew that I would, now
I feel good, I knew that I would
So good, so good, ’cause I got you
So good, so good, ’cause I got you
So good, so good, ’cause I got you

I wanna hold your hand

I wanna hold your hand

I wanna hold your hand

Oh please, say to me

You’ll let me be your man

And please, say to me

You’ll let me hold your hand

You’ll let me hold your hand

I wanna hold your hand

And when I touch you I feel happy

Inside

It’s such a feeling that my love

I can’t hide

I can’t hide

I can’t hide

Yeah, you’ve got that something

I think you’ll understand

When I’ll say that something

I wanna hold your hand

I wanna hold your hand

A music project

As we have seen in class, this is the structure you can follow for your first research project:

A- Title

B- Infos (bio data, records, important dates in the history of the singer or group, …) Use wikipedia.org, bbc.co.uk/children, google…

C-Images, videos, recordings (mp3) Use google or yahoomusic and search for: free mp3 downloads. Investigate your Word processor, menu INSERIR/INSERTAR.

D-Personal opinion, things you want to say, things you have learnt, errors you have made,…

Remember : Research is not COPYING. You have to elaborate the material to your language level. If you have any questions, ask me in class or via forum.

Memory check

Three little texts we’ve learnt by heart ( de memòria). Refreshing……..

Trees in the spring

are bright and green

and full of fruit in the summer time

in the autumn their leaves will fall

in the winter, they have no leaves at all.

Eeny, meeny, miney, mo

catch a monkey by his toe

when he screams

let him go

eeny, meeny, miney, mo.

Liar, liar

you bum is on fire

your nose is as long

as a telephone wire.

Remember you can say all three texts with rythm, as a rap.

The Wizard of Oz

Here’s the part of the song we practised last friday!

Try to memorize it!!!

“We’re off to see the wizard, the wonderful wizard of Oz.
You’ll find he is a wiz of a wiz if ever a wiz there was.
If ever oh ever a wiz there was, the Wizard of Oz is one because,
Because, because, because, because, because,
Because of the wonderful things he does.
We’re off to see the Wizard. The wonderful Wizard of Oz.”

I just can’t get enough

Hi boys and girls,

This is a song for you. I liked to dance to it when I was younger, hehe. Listen and dance to this tune. It’s from a group called Depeche Mode. And the song’s title is Just can’t get enough ( mai no en tinc prou).

It’s a love song as you can imagine and it’s not difficult at all.

Here are the lyrics:

When I’m with you baby, I go out of my head
And I just can’t get enough, I just can’t get enough
All the things you do to me and everything you said
And I just can’t get enough, I just can’t get enough

We slip and slide as we fall in love
And I just can’t seem to get enough

We walk together, were walking down the street
And I just can’t get enough, I just can’t get enough
Every time I think of you I know we have to meet
And I just can’t get enough, I just can’t get enough

It’s getting hotter, its our burning love
And I just can’t seem to get enough

I JUST CAN’T GET ENOUGH (REPEAT)

And when it rains, you’re shining down for me
And I just can’t get enough, I just can’t get enough

Just like a rainbow you know you set me free
And I just can’t get enough, I just can’t get enough

You’re like an angel and you give me your love
And I just can’t seem to get enough

This is a version by French group Nouvelle Vague and American musician Moby.

The lyrics:

If i told you things I did before
told you how I used to be
would you go along with someone like me
if you knew my story word for word
had all of my history
would you go along with someone like me

I did before and had my share
it didn’t lead nowhere
I would go along with someone like you
it doesn’t matter what you did
who you were hanging with
we could stick around and see this night through

and we don’t care about the young folks
talkin’ ’bout the young style
and we don’t care about the old folks
talkin’ ’bout the old style too
and we don’t care about their own faults
talkin’ ’bout our own style
all we care ’bout is talking
talking only me and you

usually when things has gone this far
people tend to disappear
no one will surprise me unless you do

I can tell there’s something goin’ on
hours seems to disappear
everyone is leaving i’m still with you

it doesn’t matter what we do
where we are going too
we can stick around and see this night through

and we don’t care about the young folks
talkin’ ’bout the young style
and we don’t care about the old folks
talkin’ ’bout the old style too
and we don’t care about their own faults
talkin’ ’bout our own style
all we care ’bout is talking
talking only me and you

and we don’t care about the young folks
talkin’ ’bout the young style
and we don’t care about the old folks
talkin’ ’bout the old style too
and we don’t care about their own faults
talkin’ ’bout our own style
all we care ’bout is talking
talking only me and you
talking only me and you

talking only me and you
talking only me and you
