Anti-War Songs
Introduction

• In this activity we will research a whole range of war-related songs.

• The outcome will be a compilation of what we consider to be the 10 best songs overall.

• We will start by examining two songs from 1968: “Trouble Every Day” by Frank Zappa and “If I can Dream” by Elvis Presley (http://goo.gl/wv45F).

• Start by reading through the lyrics of each of the songs. Which do you prefer? What do you expect the music will be like? Then listen to the songs themselves. Are they what you expected? Which lyrics do you prefer? Which music do you prefer? Which of these two songs will be the opening track on our “compilation CD”?
Task

• This list of songs provided below will be divided between the class so that everyone has several to choose from.

• Your job is to:

a. Locate the lyrics of the song titles you are given (e.g. using elyrics.net) and read them.

b. Decide which one song you like best overall from its lyrics.

c. Copy an extract from these lyrics into a shared Google Presentation (for example like this one - http://goo.gl/l0Fwwk)

d. Embed a video of the song from YouTube and listen to it.

e. Place an “interesting fact” about the song and/or its writer into the “Did you know…?” box.


Task 2

With the presentation finished, each student should read about and listen to each of the songs in the shared presentation (at least the first verse of each song, anyway).



• At the end of the available time, the teacher will ask each person to vote for their favourite five songs. The 10 songs that get the most votes will form our “compilation CD”.
