LEONARD COHEN & FEDERICO GARCÍA LORCA

Last week Leonard Cohen passed away. He was a poet and a singer. He was awarded the Arts Prince of Asturias award. You don't probably know him but he is a famous singer all over the world and has many well-known songs. This one in the video below was inspired by a poem by F. G. Lorca as L. Cohen admired the Spanish poet very much. After singing the song, you can compare the lyrics with the poem. We'll also watch and listen his speech at The Arts Prince of Asturias award ceremony.

ROMEO and JULIET by William Shakespeare

      As tomorrow we are going to see a free version by this play at the theatre,
             I would like you to know a little bit about it.




THIS IS THE BASIC STORY:

     A boy (Romeo) and a girl (Juliet) fall in love. But they come from families which hate each other, and know they will not be allowed to marry. They are so much in love they marry in secret instead. However, before their wedding night Romeo kills Juliet's cousin in a duel, and in the morning he is forced to leave her. If he ever returns to the city, he will be put to death.
    Juliet is then told she must marry Paris, who has been chosen by her parents, who do not know she is already married. She refuses - then agrees because she plans to fake her death and escape to be with Romeo. She takes a sleeping potion and appears to be dead, so her parents lay her in a tomb. However, Romeo does not know about the plan, visits her grave, finds her 'dead', and kills himself. Juliet finally wakes up, finds Romeo dead, and then kills herself.




Let's watch a funny version of the story:

   

And another version, serve yourself:

My tribute to DAVID BOWIE

David Robert Jones (8 January 1947 – 10 January 2016), known as David Bowie, was an English singer, songwriter, musician, record producer, painter and actor. He was a figure in popular music for over five decades, and was considered by critics and other musicians as an innovator, particularly for his work in the 1970s. 
Bowie's impact was enormous; he changed the nature of rock music. During his career, he sold an estimated 140 million records worldwide. In the UK, he was awarded 9 platinum album certifications, 11 gold and 8 silver, and in the US received 5 platinum and 7 gold certifications.

 I've chosen this song for you, I hope you like it! (it's full of verbs in the past, sorry!) It is in the Album with the same name (THE MAN WHO SOLD THE WORLD, 1973) and it is considered a heavy metal, hard rock album. 
 The song has been covered by a number of other artists, notably by Lulu, who had a UK No. 3 hit with her version in 1974, and Nirvana in 1993. MORE ABOUT DAVID BOWIE
