100 songs

Hello my friends, I´m here again!!

Have you heard that nowadays there are some list about the best 100 movies, the 100 best songs...???

Well if not, You can read my up-to-date blog.

Here you are a link with the best songs (supuestamente)

But I don´t agree with this ranking, for instance i can´t believe that "akuna matata" is on 99!!! and on the other hand "do re mi" 8renmember Julie Andrews on the 88!!! I can´t believe it!!

Well this is only my opinion. Have a look at the page and judge for yourself!!



The last exam??

Hello my friends, I´m here again!!

Tomorrow I have an English exam. i am quite nervoused because it is suppoused that exam will be the last. But this is only true if I ´ll pass the exam.
I mean if I pass this exam and other that I have done the week before, I finish my career!!!

For this reason this is a very important exam for me. So I am going to continue doing English exercices, listening songs, repeating jazz chants... and of course, writing on my blog!!

A movie and a soundtrack

Hello my friends, I´m here again!!

I want to recommend you a film that I have watched a lot of times, I had the mpvie on video but my brother le it to someone and she never give it back... but I don´t care because i have found it on DVD, so I´m pretty happy.
The movie is "The Wonders" At the year 1960 a local group of Pennsylvania want to participate in a local competition with their son "that thing you do" which is a ballad. They wan the competition because the drummer had a mistake, he got wrong with the tempo, he started to play more quickly and the ballad became into a very good pop-rock song.
After that they became famous thanks to Tom Hanks who was their manager.
The group continue palaying around the country and averybody knew "The Wonders".
There is also a triangular love problem between the singer his girlfriend and the drummer...

I don´t want to tell you the end, i want that you watch it, so the next time that you go to the "video club" ask for this movie. It is form 1996 and his director is Tom Hanks, This is the first time that Tome H. is a director. He work also as a character, he is the manager.

This group, didn´t exist really, it is fiction, but the movie has a soundtrak with all the georgous, for me, songs that appear on the movie.

One of this, ia "THAT THING YOU DO"

Doin' that thing you do,
Breaking my heart into a million pieces,
Like you always do And you,
Don't mean to be cruel,
You never even knew about the heartache,
I've been going through
Well I try and try to forget you girl,
But it's just so hard to do,
Every time you do that thing you do I,
Know all the games you play,
And I'm gonna find a way to let you know that,
You'll be mine someday '
Cause we,
Could be happy can't you see,
If you'd only let me be the one to hold you,
And keep you here with me
'Cause I try and try to forget you girl,
But it's just so hard to do,
Every time you do that thing you do
I don't ask a lot girl,
But I know one thing's for sure,
It's the love I haven't got girl,
And I just can't take it anymore '
Cause we,
Could be happy can't you see,
If you'd only let me be the one to hold you,
And keep you here with me
Cause it hurts me so just to see you go,
Around with someone new,
And if I know you you're doin' that thing,
Every day just doin' that thing,
I can't take you doing that thing you do
This is one of my favourite songs, and of course I like very much the movie. If you want to know more about this film, click on these links;

Students monologue

This comment is for those students that are, like me, in a terrible period of his/her course... yeah.. the exams!!

I´m wondering, if there isn´t another way of assessment. I think yes, of course!

When exams appears there is a feel of anxiety and a lot of stress. Pupils can´t concetrate because they are under a lot of pressure!! They can´t.. well I am a student also, so... We can´t study so many subjects at the same time, because while we are studying one of them we are thinking in the others...

If you are not a student you may don´t understand me, for this reason I want to explain what I feel in exams period...

As I said before, you have t study some subjects at the same time, yeah I Know what are you thinking about... It is true that we have all the term for study daily, but as University students we prefer going out with some friends, watching the tv, chatting or whatever.
First at all, when the term begins all of us make a planning for studying, it is difficult to do it, even it can need a day, but after do it your planning you feel better, because with anly an hour per day you can pass the exam with an A!!

Yeah these days are very good, you feel right, even if you can only follow your planning one day of all the week, no matter!! don´t worry you can do some days the double, but... thiss only happen in your mind, the sad truth is that the term pass and you haven´t studied anything...

So, there are 2 weeks for your exams and you have to study very hard!! you realize that you can´t waste your time, you can´t waste an hour!! So what can you do??

AN OTHER PLANNING!! of course, yes because you know that this time you have to follow your planning, so it is important to do it very well, you need to organise your notes, your books and of course your time, so you need an afternnon to do it (but you don´t feel that you are waste your time, it is very important!!
So, you start revising your notes and... OH MY GOOD!! you don´t have all the notes!! you phone to your classmates fos sharing the notes (because your classmates hasn´t all the notes) at the end of the conversation you decided to meet you the next day, so obviously you can´t study this afternoon.
Well you finally abtain all the notes, reorganize your planning and the first, second, third day you follow it, but then you don´t do it...

To sump up yo have to study all the notes in a few days and the nigth before the exam.

When you go to the university in order to do the exam there are a lot of people, some of them are revising their notes very quickly, others are thinking in the possible questions, other are laughing and they aren´t nervoused because they only go to the exam for know the questions but they won´t do the exam...
Everybody sit down and the teacher gives us the exam and in that moment your mind went blank and you can´t remember anything!!

Finally you do the exam as good as you can and you come back home waitting for the next week, when you can cheeck your marks...
lol lol lol...

It is only a joke based on truly things...

Kisses and I wish all my mates and me passed the exams!!


Sorry.... :(

Oh my dear blog, you can think that I have forgotten you... but this is not true.. As you know I have some exams to do and I have to study a lot, on the other hand I have had some problems and I couldn´t write anything... But, this is going to change, I promise to write more!!
