I was playing Ella Fitzgerald in my class at Hyde the other day. The students were all working on a still life drawing and listening to some of her classic hits for about a half hour when one kid exclaims, “This lady SUCKS!!!”
I was like, “Ummm… Sorry, what did you just say?”
And then he mumbled something about her voice just not being good, or being annoying or something like that.
Don’t worry. I made him sit outside for terrible taste in music. Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!
I’m thinking of putting together a playlist of songs to play in class later and I can write on the board, “Today we’re listening to…Songs That Don’t Suck!” Heh heh heh.
