Tunes Tuesday {Linky Party – July 16}

Terrific Tuesday everyone!  I’m linking up with Nick over at Sweet Rhyme – Pure Reason for his Tunes Tuesday linky party!

Like Nick said, Tunes Tuesday is basically a way of practicing boring grammar skills by highlighting examples in song lyrics while listening to the song/watching the music video! It just takes a few minutes, and the kids love it!

This week I’m going to highlight two songs/videos.  One has a very somber tone, so I had to add one that would be fun for the kids as well.

Strange Fruit – Interpreting Extended Metaphor

“Strange Fruit,” the haunting song about lynching in America that was written more than 60 years ago, was first recorded by the famed jazz singer Billie Holiday in 1939.
