I keep looking up Animaniacs segments on Youtube, and this one I find myself replaying over and over again... You'll never look at the Voyage of Magellan the same way again!

Gotta be one of the best modern teaching ballads around. Thanks for pointing me to a better version than I previously had.

Default Real World Harper Songs: Expanded Playlist

I've continued compiling the playlist on YouTube of what I call Real World Harper songs. The original playlist got full, so I had to start a second one. Here are the links:

Real World Harper Songs

Real World Harper Songs II

I've also put such things as Schoolhouse Rock and such in a separate Playlist for Teaching Ballads:

Daccio, thank you for putting those lists together. I'm glad to see songs from Minus Ten and Counting on there.

The Apollo 13 ballad is one of my faves. Wish someone would put it together with clips from the film.

That would be outstanding. I have no talent for making videos or I'd consider it.

As might be expected, I'm still finding/collecting songs appropriate to teaching. A bunch of teachers, apparently in the U.S. have put up songs on YouTube to help their students remember subjects ranging from our Presidents to advanced physics.

Most notably though I've found a lot of Irish singers putting out songs about our American Civil war as well as our Revolutionary war. I speak of Derek Warfield and the Black Irish Band. I love the accents as it makes them sound very Pernese in my mind. Danny O'Flaherty is also quite good.

I've actually made a start of cataloging appropriate songs so that I can maybe find them more easily than just looking through my unorganized play lists on YouTube.

I was also very pleased to find a pretty good song for Guy Fawkes Day, a phenomenon I was unaware of until recently.
