i understand that she has a voice that's easy to understand and that she sings very, very slowly, but if i have to sing another Carpenters song in class, so help me god, i may smash the CD the teachers all seem to have. can't we do the Beatles or something??
 
 
Mood: sick of carpenters!
Music: can you guess?

yeah, i'm thinking like Norwegian Wood, or Something, or even Yesterday would be better at this point.

john said it was about a reporter he had an affair with, but he was married and didn't want to make it too obvious. paul added the bit about burning her house down in the end.

you're talking to a very avid post-Anthology era Beatlemaniac. i know bits of lyrics and trivia that Beatles fans twice my age don't know because of it. but yeah, chances are my students wouldn't get it either, hehe.

We did The Beatles "Hello Goodbye" at my school and it was perfect...I mean, we're talking first year Junior High and they could understand most of it at least ("You say yes, I say no...Stop/Go," etc, it's cake)...I recommend it. I wouldn't recommend Norwegian Wood or Yesterday...even though they may be popular, the words are really difficult. Maybe "I wanna Hold your Hand" or "Love Me Do" ...gotta go with the simple pop.

See, what's annoying to me is that they choose these Carpenters songs that the kids DEFINITELY can't understand. We did "Yesterday Once More" and "Top of the World" in the last two weeks, and these songs are clearly incomprehensible. Norwegian Wood really is simple if only by comparison.
