DO THEY KNOW IT'S XMAS TIME?

HAPPY CHRISTMAS!

Os deseo a todos una muy Feliz Navidad, disfrutando de la gente a la que queréis y recordando a aquellos que no pueden hacerlo, unos porque ya no están con nosotros, otros porque no son tan afortunados.
Miguel Armillas.
CHRISTMAS LIGHTS, BY COLD PLAY
Christmas night, another fight
Tears we cried; a flood
Got all kinds of poison in, poison in my blood
Took my feet, to Oxford street, trying to right a wrong
Just walk away, those windows say, but I can't believe she's gone

When you're still waiting for the snow to fall
It doesn't really feel like Christmas at all
group of cameras on there flicker, Oh they flicker and they flow
And I'm up here holding on to all those chandeliers of hope
Like some drunkard Elvis singing, I go singing out of tune
Singing how I always loved you darling, and I always will

Oh when I'm still waiting for the snow to fall
It doesn't really feel like Christmas at all
Still waiting for the snow to fall,
It doesn't really feel like Christmas at all.

Those Christmas lights
Adictivoz.com Light up the street
Down where the sea and city meet
May all your troubles soon be gone
Oh Christmas lights, keep shining on
Those Christmas lights, light up the street
Maybe they'll bring her back to me
Then all my troubles will be gone
Oh Christmas lights, keep shining on
Oh Christmas lights, light up the street
Adictivoz.com Light up the fireworks in me
May all your troubles soon be gone
Those Christmas lights, keep shining on.

LUCES DE NAVIDAD

La noche de Navidad, otra pelea
Las lágrimas que lloramos; una inundación
Tengo todo tipo de veneno en, en mi sangre
Llevé mis pies, a la calle Oxford, tratando de corregir un error
Las ventanas dicen "vas tan lejos y a pie?,
Adictivoz.com Pero no puedo creer que ella se haya ido.

Cuando estás a la espera de que caiga la nieve
En realidad no parece que fuera del todo, Navidad

Un grupo de cámaras parpadean, ¡Oh parpadean y fluyen!
Y yo estoy aquí a la espera de todos esos candelabros de esperanza
Al igual que unos cuantos borrahines cantando Elvis, voy a cantar fuera de tono
Voy a cantar como si siempre te hubiera amado querida, siempre lo haré.

Oh, cuando estoy a la espera de que caiga la nieve
En realidad no parece que fuera del todo, Navidad
Todavía espero de que la nieve caiga,
No parece que fuese Navidad del todo

Esas luces de Navidad,
Iluminan las calles
Allá abajo, donde el ciudad y el mar se unen
Puede que... tus problemas se esfumen pronto
Oh, luces de Navidad, sigan brillando
Esas luces de Navidad, iluminen las calle
A lo mejor, logran traerla de regreso a mí
En ese ntonces todos mis problemas se irán
Adictivoz.com Oh, luces de Navidad, sigan brillando
Oh, luces de Navidad, iluminen la calle
Enciendan los fuegos artificiales en mí
Puede que... tus problemas se esfumen pronto
Oh, luces de Navidad, sigan brillando.

NATURE AND HUMANS

BY CLAUDIA SALAGRE, 2BTO-B
Nature is essential for us, the Humans, but we don't want to believe that. We need it to live and all our development is based on it.
But now, we don´t remember this, and we think that Nature isn't important, and that we can do the things that we want with it: we destroy forests, we catch all fish we want, we destroy ecosystems, we exploit the minerals, and we do other things that are destroying our small and beautiful world. Last week, in France, it appeared a new type of honey. The French bee-keepers found blue honey into their honey combs! The honey was blue because the bees had eaten the sweet residues of an M&M's factory.
It is an EVIDENCE of the big change and destruction that we are doing in our fantastic and delicate world. We need to change our way of thinking immediately if we want to save it.

THE IMPOSSIBLE: REVIEW (MY OPINION)

BY MONICA MOVILLA, 2BTO-C

Synopsis
María (Naomi Watts), Henry (Ewan McGregor), and their three sons begin their winter holidays in Thailand. The morning of December 26th, the family were relaxing at the pool after Christmas day when the sea, turned into an enormous and violent wall of black water, invaded the hotel grounds. María only has time to scream before being swallowed up and carried away by the terrible wave.
Without time to assimilate the incomprehensible and unexpected natural disaster that they have just suffered, they will have to fight for the survival and meet again.
The film is based on a true story that took place during the tsunami that hit the coast of Thailand in 2004.
My review: Own opinion
I saw that film last weekend, and I cried a lot! Honestly, I think it's a good film, and it shows what happened really. It's a very emotional film that shows both the anxiety of the natural disaster and the fight to survive, as the reunion with the family, who had also survived, at the end.

IS MUSIC ALWAYS THE SAME?

BY JULIA DÍAZ, 2BTO-D

These days, there are many types of music, yes, but do people listen to songs that always seem the same? Experts say that they do. Young people look for songs and music styles which are trendy, songs that famous people listen to, and that are heard and danced in night clubs. Because of that, singers exploit that to create songs which they know they are going to be successful. They use the same rhythms and the same type of lyrics. I think an example of this may be any Pitbull’s song.
But, of course, there are many artists who create music just to show their feelings and share them with everyone, and not just to get money. This is the mentality that musicians used to have last century. In my opinion, the mentality of a true artist.
