Rock Band: Mcfly

mcfly3McFly are a famous rock band in the UK. Let me tell you why I fell in love with this band. One day, I watched a wedding speech on Youtube and then I found one video. A guy doesn’t like public speeches but he knows how to write a song so he performed his song to his friends, family, and his wife. That was amazing. Then I was wondering why this guy is good at singing. I searched who is this guy and found out. His name is Tom Fletcher. He belongs to band called Mcfly. I listened to many songs by Mcfly and I liked it. I recommend you to listen to their song!! Here’s a video called “Wedding speech” by Tom Fletcher. It may make you happy.

SEKAI NO OWARI

img_main0330What is a strange group name… Don’t you think so?  They are Japanese band, “Sekai No Owari“. This name means “End of the world” in Japanese.

They are unique band not only the name, but also their style. They are band, but there are no bassist and drummer. There is a DJ instead of them. His name is “DJ LOVE”. He makes bass and drum sounds.

One of the their unique characters is lyrics.  They often use WAR, PEACE, LOVE, HATRED or DEATH in lyrics. The melody which they made is pop, but some lyrics are dark. I like their music, because it is so different from other bands.

If you look for good music, please listen to “Sekai No Owari”.

Bored First years make videos

This kind of bored activity is both fun and good. A small group of first year students were bored at lunch and decided to play around with their iPod Touches. These little machines can do so much, both with wifi and without.

And now for a little fun stuff with a few more students. More is better, right?

Enjoy!
