Riders on the Storm – Doors

This is older music from the late 60’s.  But wow! What a futuristic sound and did you ever hear a piano sound more like raindrops before?  The Doors have many great songs.  Check them out!

Riders on the Storm – Doors

Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Into this house we’re born
Into this world we’re thrown
Like a dog without a bone
An actor out on loan
Riders on the storm

There’s a killer on the road
His brain is squirmin’ like a toad
Take a long holiday
Let your children play
If you give this man a ride
Sweet family will die
Killer on the road, yeah

Girl, you gotta love your man
Girl, you gotta love your man
Take him by the hand
Make him understand
The world on you depends
Our life will never end
Gotta love your man, yeah

Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Into this house we’re born
Into this world we’re thrown
Like a dog without a bone
An actor out on loan.
Riders on the storm

Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm

Speed of Sound – Coldplay

I believe Coldplay has been the best music group of the last ten years! So their music is awesome! Enjoy this great track, one of their many wonderful songs.

Speed of Sound – Coldplay

How long before I get in?
Before it starts, before I begin?
How long before you decide?
Before I know what it feels like?
Where To, where do I go?
If you never try, then you’ll never know.
How long do I have to climb,
Up on the side of this mountain of mine?

Look up, I look up at night,
Planets are moving at the speed of light.
Climb up, up in the trees,
every chance that you get,
is a chance you seize.
How long am I gonna stand,
with my head stuck under the sand?
I’ll start before I can stop,
before I see things the right way up.

All that noise, and all that sound,
All those places I got found.
And birds go flying at the speed of sound,
to show you how it all began.
Birds came flying from the underground,
if you could see it then you’d understand?

Ideas that you’ll never find,
All the inventors could never design.
The buildings that you put up,
Japan and China all lit up.
The sign that I couldn’t read,
or a light that I couldn’t see,
some things you have to believe,
but others are puzzles, puzzling me.

All that noise, and all that sound,
All those places I got found.
And birds go flying at the speed of sound,
to show you how it all began.
Birds came flying from the underground,
if you could see it then you’d understand,
ah when you see it then you’ll understand?

All those signs, I knew what they meant.
Some things you can invent.
Some get made, and some get sent,
Ooh?
Birds go flying at the speed of sound,
to show you how it all began.
Birds came flying from the underground,
if you could see it then you’d understand,
ah, when you see it then you’ll understand?

 

The Bondaygee Song

This is a special song for me though very simple because it’s where I got the whole “Bondaygee” idea from.  Check out the Bondaygee Story here.

The Bondaygee Song – James Purdie

Bondaygee Bondaygee! Students: “Bondaygee!” 

Bondaygee Bondaygee! Students: “Bondaygee!”

My favorite thing in the world to eat,

Is the sweet little bondaygee treat.

I’d like to eat it everyday if I could.

But my mother doesn’t think that I should

So I sing, “Bondaygee bondaygee” …………….bondaygee!

(I) went to the market for something to eat

There was a strange smell in the air.

I bought a cup and started to eat

That strange little bondaygee treat.

So I sing, “Bondaygee bondaygee” …………….bondaygee!

The Things I Love About Korea

A typical road-side highway rest stop in Korea.If you ever get the chance to travel and live in another country for a few years or more, it’s a wonderful chance to compare and contrast cultures and see what makes them each successful and beautiful in their own ways.

It’s actually an amazing wonder in our day and age just to be able to go and live in worlds that evolved seperately for thousands of years and I will tell you, it just doesn’t get any more different than Korea and Canada.  I was simply awe-stricken when I first arrived.  My first 12 hours in the country lives like an interesting impressionist painting in my memory because after you have stayed awake for so long on a plane, you’re jet-lagged, exhausted and in a semi-conscious state of mind with definitely some “dream-like” perceptions taking place around you.

Small Kids ESL Videos

naturalesl

As you know, music is one of my big secrets for teaching.  Music is great for all kinds of teaching really, but it works amazingly with ESL learners.  I just wrote an article about my favorite Musical Movies for ESL Learning, however, for younger children there are some different recommendations.  By younger kids, I mean any age before 9 years old.  Several recommendations from the “Musical Movies For ESL Learning” article are great too.  But there are definitely several more that fit better with younger children.

Two Little Cats Music Video

Not only do I love cats, I even make songs and animated music videos about them!  Check out this little tune I made back in 2006 in Korea.  This features a bit of my animation skills.  I can do projects for you too.  If you need something done let me know.  Leave a message.  I also work in 3D graphics, photography, 4K film and more.

Super Genius Kids 슈퍼 영어천재 키즈

 

bondwelcThese were my Super-Star students from Kwang Nam Elementary School in Seoul. This was one of my favorite schools and experiences for sure. You can see how well my “Bondaygee ESL System” works here. Mind you the students were pretty nervous doing their little recitals and did their best to say the words as fast as possible. If you were to talk to them and normal speed they could answer with near perfect pronunciation. Click a student to hear their recitals and the “Browser Back” button to go back to start.  The story about these great students can be found here at “The Amazing ESL Story”.bondwelc
