3 Introduction

Introduction

When I was fifteen years old, my English teacher introduced her favorite song to us. The song was Billy Joel’s ‘The Stranger’. Since then, I have been into the piano man’s masterpieces. My passion for his music eventually let me to form a band and performed his songs when I was nineteen. Sometimes, not always, the music has an immense power to change the course of your future.

12 The Cold War

The Cold War

Why is it called the ‘Cold’ War? During the Cold War, what did the Soviet Union want to do? What did the United States do against the spread of communism? Now let us listen to ‘Leningrad’. As listening, why don’t you try to answer questions on your worksheet!

13 Leningrad

Leningrad

Viktor was sent to some Red Army town Served out his time, became a circus clown The greatest happiness he'd ever found Was making Russian children glad And children lived in Leningrad But children lived in Levittown And hid in the shelters underground Until the Soviets turned their ships around And tore the Cuban missiles down And in that bright October sun We knew our childhood days were done And I watched my friends go off to war What do they keep on fighting for?

Viktor was born in the spring of '44 And never saw his father anymore A child of sacrifice, a child of war Another son who never had a father after Leningrad Went off to school and learned to serve the state Followed the rules and drank his vodka straight The only way to live was drown the hate A Russian life was very sad And such was life in Leningrad I was born in '49 A cold war kid in McCarthy time Stop 'em at the 38th Parallel Blast those yellow reds to hell And cold war kids were hard to kill Under their desk in an air raid drill Haven't they heard we won the war What do they keep on fighting for?

And so my child, when I came to this place To meet him eye to eye and face to face He made my daughter laugh, then we embraced We never knew what friends we had Until we came to Leningrad

16 Conclusion

Conclusion

Songs may increase students’ motivation to learn and open a different way to learn more about the topic. The lyrics, if carefully examined, tell us a lot of information as not only the songwriter intends but the listener interprets. Knowing the background of songwriting may be helpful to understand why the songwriter wrote the song and expand your knowledge.
