Class 344 Songs of the Week
Every week, part of your nightly homework is to practice the song of the week and memorize the song by Friday. Each week I'll post an audio or video file of the song here so you can watch it and practice at home. I'll also post some songs that aren't "songs of the week" but that we sang/listened to in class. Happy singing!
February 10-14: Anamaniac's Multiplication
December 16-20: Seasons of Love & Prince Ali
December 9-11: Good King Wencelas - A traditional British carol
December 2-6: Light One Candle (Lyrics by Peter Yarrow) - A song inspired by Chanukah
November 18-22 - Sevivon, A Chanukah Song
Break It Up from Maths Mansion
November 4-8 - Alhamdulillah
This is a Muslim song of praise. We will be learning songs from a variety of different cultures and holiday traditions, and some of these songs will be included in the Winter Holiday Concert.
October 28-November 1 - El Alfabeto (Abecedario) - Spanish Alphabet
October 21-25 - Rounding ... The Call Me Maybe version
Download the lyrics to practice with the karaoke version below. Have fun!
October 15-18 - YAKKO'S “NEW” WORLD SONG
This is from a cartoon television program that aired in 1993. Several of the countries have changed since then, so the original song is no longer very useful, except for the tune. Please do NOT practice the words in this video, since it won't match the version we're singing in class. Click here to download a copy of the lyrics we are using. You don't need to memorize the song this week. You only need to be able to sing all of the countries smoothly enough to keep the tune and rhythym - this is quite the challenge. Good luck!
Oct. 7 - 11 - "Old Nassau" (Princeton's Alma Mater Song)
The graduating class always has a sing-along on the steps of Blair Arch (one of the oldest dormitories.) The "Senior Sing" ends with the students all singing "Old Nassau" like in this video above.
Here's a mash-up of various student groups at Princeton singing "Old Nassau".
Sept. 30 - Oct. 4 - "Fifty Nifty United States"
Practice with this version with lyrics (below):
