“Here’s my number so call me maybe,”well “Never mind I’ll find someone like you,” and all the “Party Rockers in the house tonight,” and we will be “Rolling in the deep!”
Music shapes our world. You can listen to it if you are on a road trip, doing your homework, or if you just want to dance. One of the best things about music is that there are so many different genres, artists, songs and instruments that everybody can find something to like. Today, even many television shows are based on music.
From the radio to your computer to your smart phones, everybody has access to instant music today. The billboards are screaming Adele, LMFAO, Taylor Swift, and Katy Perry. There are so many songs but some of the most popular right now are “Someone Like You”, “Call me Maybe”, “Rolling in the Deep”, “PartyRockers”, and “Eyes Open”. At this year’s Grammy Awards, Adele won five awards, Kanye West won three, and Taylor Swift won two. There were many other musicians honored, but those were the top winners.
Another fun thing about music is that students and their parents often have very different interests in their music. While many students love rap and hip hop, most parents find it obnoxious and annoying!
“I love Lana Del Rey,” said Seventh Grader Arielle B.
But we can’t forget about the classics, right? All the great music of the 1960s and 1970s when rock and roll was really getting its start. We have Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Frank Sinatra, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, and even the young Michael Jackson with the Jackson Five. There are televison shows about music now like Glee and the new show Smash.
For some people they need a quiet room to hang out in, but for others they need music and make it loud to hang out. Music also helps during studying by letting you make up new lyrics, create poetry or just get pumped up.
“I listen to Taylor Swift when I need to do poetry or just homework!” said Eighth Grader Sara N.
Many teachers at our school love music as well. Math teacher Mr. Michael Fujii listens to pop, while English and Social Studies teacher Ms. Gail Nowak loves the classics. English teacher Ms. Sara Pearlman loves to rock out and English teacher Mrs. Leslie Bezich loves to listen to a good country tune.
There are a lot of music choices out there…plug in some earphones and go ROCK OUT!
