Best music - worse reception?!

Discussion in 'Secondary' started by teach984, May 18, 2011.

  1. When putting a bit of music on for kids to work to, what's the best music you've put on that's had the worst reception?

    I only ask because I put Bob Dylan - Blood on the Tracks on for the students today, arguably one of the greatest albums ever and they spent 20 minutes taking the mickey out of it and laughing at it efore I caved in and put Galaxy Radio on for them!!

    Sounds like your students have good taste. Bob Dylan, talentless oik who was lucky that the Vietnam war was on when he wrote a couple of protest songs.

    I find Guns n Roses has the best effect on my classes.
     
  4. The first Tracy Chapman album (skipping the track she does without instruments) and Bob Marley greatest hits - both always seem to go down well. Mind you if it is an A-Level class on a Friday morning doing yet more revision, a bit of disco is great, "I will survive" followed by "Can You Feel it?" always picks them back up.
