Sing, Sing a Song Saturday

I started doing what I call Sing, Sing a Song Saturday.  I'm going to post one song on Saturdays that the boys or I like. 

The song may be part of a movie, a kid's video or just a song we like. I'll try and include why we like it and/or the history of the song/singer.

Do you ever listen to music in other languages? Sometimes I do. Of course not to sing to. Just to hear something a little different.

There is one exercise where I have my students draw all different cultures of people out of proportion. All during the exercise I play different cultures of music. Many of them like it, some ask me what this musician or that band is, and others want me to turn it off. I can understand those that don't like to listen to something different. I have to say that when I lived in Savannah, Georgia there were all other cultures that the school requited. When others talked in nothing, but their native language, and looked at me I felt self conscious! With music you know they are not singing about you, personally.

This week I'm featuring something French. The singer's name is Mélanie Laurent. She is an actress, singer, writer, and model. She won the César Award for Most Promising Actress for her performance in I'm Fine, Don't Worry in 2006. She is most known for being in Inglorious Bastards. In the movie she didn't know any English. 

Mélanie Laurent was born in Paris, France to a ballet teacher, and a voice actor. She is due any moment to have her first baby.

I've been listening to some Australian singers. They have some good artists.

I like the music, but not understanding the words makes me think I like when I can understand what is being said

She had such a pretty voice. We loved her in Inglorious Bastards too!

When my artist daughter was in college she would have enjoyed the project about students drawing all different cultures of people with the music. I think that is a great idea!

I just saw her in something, but I had no idea she sang, too!

The different colored lipstick was cool!
