Can't Stop the Feeling

Mandela Script Personal Use Regular

Can't Stop the Feeling was released on May 2016. Justin Timberlake, the singer, put on his dancing shoes to pen this good tune with Max Martin.

The song is the soundtrack of the animated movie Trolls. Timberlake also provides the voice of a grumpy-looking grey-blue troll called Branch in the Dreamworks film.

We'll get fun and work with his song to revise some vocabulary. First, watch the catchy video:

Let's watch at the official Dreamwork's Trolls Trailer! The two main characters in the movie are just like Shrek and Donkey. Branch is like Shrek: he is grumpy, short tempered, and likes  being alone. Poppy is like Donkey: she is possitive, talkative, and annoying! Both Poppy and Branch are polar opposites who go on a journey together and probably will become good friends in the end. So this movie is like Shrek but with trolls and no princesses or fairytale characters!

What do you think?

Breathing by Jason Derulo

                                              Kitten Swash

Breathing is a beautiful song by the artist Jason Derulo. When the song was released in 2011 he said: "This song means a lot to me as it's serious and heartfelt, but the melody is the exact opposite. It's about my cousin, who recently passed away." 

In my opinion, it's awesome! So, let's watch it!!

Rude is the debut single by Canadian reggae fusion band Magic. It was released on October, 2013. Despite many music critics, it became an international commercial success.

The song is actually based in a real life situation that the singer, Nasri, had to face. He was born in Toronto, Canada but he came from a Palestinian family. 

The story is about a young man who asks his girlfriend's father for her hand in marriage and he is rejected.

  4. Is the girl's dad wrong not to give them his blessing?
  5. The ritual of asking a dad's permission for his daughter's hand in marriage began because women used to get married very young in past and they actually needed their dad's permission.

  6. What is the difference between asking for "permission" and asking for a "blessing"? Do you think it's wise to ask for a blessing nowadays, even though permission isn't required anymore? Explain.
