Libre à qui le souhaite de tisser ici ses propres fils avec ceux d'un blog à la trame dessinée par l'anglais et son univers. Orientés par exemple par l'histoire, l'humour, la musique ou le cinéma ses vidéos, textes, sons, illustrations -etc- viennent y prolonger les thèmes explorés en cours, et j'y publie des ressources conçues pour enrichir la pratique de la langue. S'il peut devenir outil de progression, je souhaite aussi qu'il vous procure plaisir et parfois même amusement... why not ?!
"This is Halloween" is a song from "The night before Christmas" ,
a fantasy film by Tim Burton... enjoy the clip :
No copyright infringement intended -all music belongs to Disney and the artists from "This Is Halloween" (excerpted from "the Nightmare Before Christmas").
This song evokes Atlas, one of the Titans from the Greek mythology.
Coldplay wrote it for the "Hunger Games : Catch Fire" film soundtrack.
BAC >> I hope you liked the song... and even if you didn't, keep in mind that the lyrics may be related to "Myths & Heroes" English concept.
"You'll be loved"
This song is not exactly the usual "sha-la-la-la-laaa, I love you so much !" classic ;o)
And yet, though its tune and some of its stills may look harsh, its chorus message is rather optimistic ! The animation is well-made and the whole clip is rather unusual, that's also why I like it ! What about you ? Whether you like it or not, let me know in your comments...
In this song, the singer enumerates things the character can do to show the different roles he plays in his life... and how he rises -and falls... Listen attentively to the song and make a list of the things the character "can" do. You may also note them down, and send me (1) your list so that... I can correct it :o)
Last year, I put "Like a Hobo" clip on the blog :
actually it's the clip graphism that I liked most...
though I like Winston's music as well.
The clip below shows him singing "In your Hands" :
Yesterday was Earth Day, and everybody knows the major area of our planet is covered with water... Well, though mountain landscapes happen to be dazzlingly beautiful, I still prefer landscapes with water :o) (1)
This just reminded me of an old song I'm really fond of. Its title is part of its chorus -welcome to the Home by the Sea !
Beware... not only is the song very long, but you'll discover a "home by the sea" that looks rather mysterious...
Read the song lyrics : all you need is
clicking the manuscript below :
(1) = Hey... what's the use of your "You've got lakes in the mountains, they're water too..." ?? :-D
landscape (paysage) / dazzling = extremely attractive
dazzlingly : adverb -intensely / a chorus = a definition >>> here
