Marisa’s advanced English class

Hope there’s someone

Posted by marisadedios on March 12, 2008

The video I embedded originally has been removed, so here goes a different video!

I love this song. What do you think about its meaning? I have also attached the exercise we have done in class.

    It’s been a long time since my last lesson, but when I’ve clicked on this page and I’ve found this great song I wonder what kind of exercice have you done these days in class! It’s a great song performed by Antony and the Johnsons. Perhaps this video doesn’t match with the original meaning of the song, but it’s nice too, and makes you think about lots of thinks. I recommend you to listen to this group and to feel the power of the lyrics.

    This song has a big message behind the lyric. For me, this activity has been very interesting because I need more listenings to improve them.

    It’s a beautiful song but at the same time it’s a bit sad, maybe because speaking about death it’s a tabu in our society and we relate it with sadness.
