I wanted to share with you one of my favorite musicians/music therapist/composers I follow in the blogosphere. Rachel Rambach is a super talented song-writer and music therapist and I have followed her blog for more than 3 years now. If you have never visited her sites, start at Listen & Learn Music and start clicking! She has more useful songs for teaching, ideas, and original songs than I can count!
This past week she posted a little parody to the song “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen. If you live in America and have a radio, you’ve heard this song….at least 17,000 times!! We all hate to admit we like and sing along as loud as possible!
With starting at a new school, I found Rachel’s version, “Sit With Me Maybe” to be so appropriate for the beginning of the year. We combined 5 different elementary schools to create Clark Creek ES STEM Academy and so we’re all making lots of new friends here. So far this week, I have shared the song with the lyrics on a PowerPoint and the kids have had a blast singing along, since they already know the melody! So head on over to Rachel’s site, have a listen, and if you like it, you can buy the mp3 and a PDF of the lyrics and chords for a small fee. Totally worth it in my opinion!
And just for fun. And because it’s Friday of the first week of school and I am deliriously tired…..another parody….for listening pleasure 🙂
