Carmen – par Stromae

Reviewed by Alex McGovern, St Edmund’s College

 La chanson ‘Carmen’ par Stromae (un chanteur français) commence avec un oiseau mignon, qui rencontre un garçon. Toutefois, la vidéo prend un virage plus sombre, car le oiseau devient un monstre! L’homme est déprimé, et l’oiseau le nourrit à un énorme oiseau, avec le président et la reine.  À mon avis, la vidéo suggère que les média sociaux peuvent devenir addictifs. J’ai choisi cette vidéo parce que c’est différent de beaucoup d’autres vidéos musicales que j’ai vues. Je pense que cette vidéo est effrayante, car le message est assez terrifiant !


The song ‘Carmen’ by Stromae (a French singer) begins with a cute bird, who meets a boy. However, the video takes a darker turn, because the bird becomes a monster! The man is depressed, and the bird feeds him to an enormous bird, with the President and the Queen. In my opinion, the video suggests that social media can become addictive. I chose this video because it is different to many other music videos that I have seen. I think this video is frightening, because the message is quite creepy!

 

 Ay Carmela – Coro Popular Jabalón

Reviewed by Hannah Harvey, St Lawrence College

Me gusto mucho la canción llamada ‘Ay Carmela’ porque es realmente cultural. Me gusta que cuenta sobre la Guerra Civil espaňola. Comparten fotos de las cosas malas y las cosas buenas. Ahora, puedo simpatizar con ellos porque ahora entiendo. Más videos ayudarán a las personas dares cuenta de que lucharon. Escuchar estas canciones es major que ver canciones de amor y canciones de rap. Estos videos ayudan a aprender.

I like this song a lot, called “ay carmela” because its really cultural. I mike that it’s about the Spanish civil war. They share photos of bad and good things. Now I can sympthise with them because now I understand. More videos will help people realise that they faught. Listening to these songs is better than love and rap songs. These videos help us to learn.
