I'm glad you're all using the wiki. BUT you need to use the wiki to be effective. Here was the prompt you seem to have selected:

Music_pronoun_extra.JPG

I see that you all have changed the lyrics, but the changed lyrics do not reflect clear pronoun reference, which was the main objective of this enrichment activity.

Sorry! No extra credit. But keep trying... and remember that AP (informally) stands for ANSWER THE PROMPT.

On another note, it is nice to see what songs ya'll like. We'll have to make a mix and listen to some in class.

Post lyrics on this page guys!

My Kinda Party
By Jason Aldean
--original--
"Worked all week,
cleaned up, clean cut, and clean shave,
I got the cover off the '68,
fired it up and let them horses sing"

I worked all week,
cleaned up, clean haircut, and a clean shave,
pulled the cover off the 1968,
turned it on and revved the engine"

Stairway to heaven
By Led Zeppelin
~original~
"Your head is humming and it won't go,
In case you don't know,
The Piper's calling you to join him.
Dear Lady can you hear the wind blow, and did you know,
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind
~possible correction~
"Your head is attempting to hum
but it just won't hum
and the piper is calling you to hum with him
Dear lady can you hear the humming
your secret lies in listening to the whispering wind to hear"

You had a lota crooks tryna steal your heart

How to love, how to love

"Stayin Alive" byBee Gees
original:
Well now, I get low and I get high,
and if I can't get either, I really try.
Got the wings of heaven on my shoes.
I'm a dancin' man and I just can't lose.
You know it's all right. It's OK.
I'll live to see another day.
We can try to understand
the New York Time's effect on man.
Corrections:
Well now, I get sad, and happy,
and if I can't get either, I really try
I have the wings of heaven on my shoes.
I'm an indecisive man and I just can't lose.
you know its all right. It's OK
I'll make it out alive
Everyone can try to understand
the effect of work on men.
-AnaMaria T.


Don't Stop the Music

I'm making my way over to my favourite place
I gotta get my body moving
Shake the stress away
I wasn't looking for nobody when you looked my way"

"It is starting to become late
I am going to my favorite place
I got to start moving my body
Shake away the stress
I was not looking for any one when I saw you look my direction"

Mac Miller- Best Day Ever

ORIGINAL
if it ain't about the dream, than it ain't about me
gon' a couple four weeks without a good night's sleep
imagination, making, musical creation
the journey i'm facing plus the paper that i'm chasing
got me crazy after sane with the lames i see you hating
but there's nothing that can change it, thumbs up i'm maintaining
no complaining when it's raining, i'll be in another zone
move out my mothers home to a world i call my own
i ain't gonna play around no more

This is the consequence

When one bothers us.

Stereo Hearts - by Gym Class Heroes
I only pray you'll never leave me behind (never leave me)
Because good music can be so hard to find (so hard to find)
I take your hand and hold it closer to mine
Thought love was dead, but now you're changing my mind

Translation...
I really hope you'll always stay with me
It is difficult to find someone as good as you
I feel close to you
With you I feel like love has a chance

Chorus
My heart's a stereo
It beats for you, so listen close
Hear my thoughts in every no-o-o-te
Make me your radio
Turn me up when you feel low
This melody was meant for you
Just sing along to my stereo

This whole verse is a metaphor, the whole song is an artistic conceit.

~ Nathan Mandi


Fresh Prince of Bel-Air- Will Smith
original:
In west Philadelphia born and raised
On the playground is where I spent most of my days
Chillin out, maxin, relaxing all cool,
And all shooting some b-ball outside of the school
When a couple of guys who were up to no good
Started making trouble in my neighborhood
I got in one lil fight and my mom got scared
And said "You're moving with your auntie and uncle in Bel-Air"
correction:
I was born and raised in West Phladelphia
I spend many of my days on a playground chilling out, maxin, and relaxing just being cool.
Me and all my friend were shooting B-ball outside of school,
until a couple of guys who were up to no good started trouble in my neighborhood.
I was involved in one little fight that scared my mom so she said "You're moving in with your Auntie and Uncle in Bel-Air"

Rumour Has It - Adele
*Original*
She, she ain't real,
She ain't gonna be able to love you like I will,
She is a stranger,
You and I have history,
Or don't you remember?
Sure, she's got it all,
But, baby, is that really what you want?
*Translation*
She is not real,
She will not love you like I will,
She is a stranger,
We have history,
Do you not remember?
Sure, she has it all,
But, baby, is that really what you want?

♥Actors- All Time Low♥
*Original*
Safe little house
safe little friends
safe little thoughts to keep you safe
from all those big bad wolves that eat you up
safe in your room
safe as a tomb
sleep in a coffin made of glass
it takes a big facade to hide the cracks
*Change*
Safe little home
safe little pals
safe thoughts that comfort you
from all those people who try to keep you down
Safe in your dome
sleep in a box made of glass
it takes a big front to hide who you really are
-Stephanie Vitek :)



Walk Alone- Jack Johnson
who's to say he's not the gifted one
well i forgot he's not the teacher's son
well he's just a reason for her to say that she needs a a substance in her today
well who's to say he's not gonna see the sun well i forgot he's not the gifted one he's just a another version of his dad
who loved to love things that he never
all he ever does is walk alone many can only walk so far before all he ever does is look inside he don't need no where to hide.

CORRECTION:
All he ever does is walk alone many can only walk so far all he ever does is look inside he doesn't need anywhere to hide.

Drake “Make Me Proud”
Original Hook:
I know things get hard

But girl you got it, girl you got it there you go

Can't you tell by how they looking at you everywhere you go

Wondering what's on your mind, it must be hard to be that fine, when all these mutha... wanna waste your time

It's just amazing, girl, and all I can say is...

I'm so, i'm so, i'm so, i'm so, i'm so

I'm so proud of you

I'm so, i'm so, i'm so, i'm so, i'm so

I'm so proud of you

I'm so, i'm so, i'm so, i'm so, i'm so

I'm so proud of you

Everything’s adding up, you've been through hell and back

That's why you're bad as f...and you
Correction:
I know things get hard
But girl do what you have to do
Did you realize yet everybody is looking at you
Just trying to figure out what’s on your mind, must be hard being that beautiful
Just because we know people who like to waste time
I am amazed by you and all I can say is I am so proud of you
Everything is adding up you have been through difficult obstacles and survived
I am so proud of you.
~Alison Cole
