Week 7 – Nothing Compares 2 U

I remember the first time I saw the music video for "Nothing Compares 2U". I must have been 12.  I think it was the first time I had ever felt a song in my toes. I couldn't look away. Something about it is haunting. Intense. It takes your breath away. I remember being transfixed. [...]

Week 3 – Ridin’ Solo

This week's Monday Motivation is from Jason Derulo. It's a song I never play in the classroom because I didn't download the radio edit, and the word "sh*t" features quite a lot. Oops! It's a song about getting over a breakup, finding who you are again, pulling yourself together and moving from strength to strength. [...]
