Mr. Tough

Have you ever heard of Yo La Tengo?

Is it a Spanish or an English band? Find out a little bit about the origin of the name and if the city they come from is famous for any other singer or band.

Did you like it? What do you think about its meaning?

It's Friday…

Have you ever listened to this song?

Find out who plays it, where they are from and the song meaning. Do you think it's pop music?

Moreover, write down what you usually do on your Fridays, and what you are doing this Friday!

… I'm in love!

How it happened?

Did you know where does the electronic music you hear every day come from?

First, you have to visit the black music chronology. You will find it in this link.

Secondly, listen to the original version of Michael Jackson's "Rock this World". Then, listen to its remix by Frankie Knuckles. Which are the differences between them?

Don't forget to check out wikipedia's Disco music page! You can also listen to Gloria Gaynor's "I am what I am" and ask for further information to Professor Xavi Santandreu.
