Singing out loud

CHINA | Monday, 16 June 2008 | Views [746]

My song presentations proved another thing about my students.  In addition to having really bad taste in music, they also can’t resist singing if they know the words. 

Almost all of the songs were really, really old American or British pop songs.  So, of course, everyone in the world knows the words.  

A fair share of the presentations became sing-a-longs.  One student decided to spice his terrible presentation up by actually singing the song he picked. 

But the most amusing of all was the last presentation in one of my classes.  The student chose that song by the Jamaican guy about a girl being so beautiful he wants to commit “suiciiiiide suiciiiiide”.  The entire class started singing the song, aided by the lyrics that were on the projector.  I chuckled as I graded.
