STEREO HEART ~Gym Class Heroes ft. Adam Levine~

Chorus

My hearts a stereo,
It beats for you so listen close,
Hear my thoughts in every note,
Oh oh,
Make me your radio,
Turn me up when you feel low,
This melody was meant for you,
So sing-a-long to my stereo
Oh oh oh oh, Oh oh oh
To my stereo
Oh oh oh oh,
So sing a long to my stereo

Verse 1
If I was just another dusty record on the shelf,
Would you blow me off and play me like everybody else,
If I asked you to scratch my back could you handle that,
Like yikky yea Travie I can handle that,
Further more I apologize for any skipping tracks,
It's just the last girl that played me left a couple tracks,
I used to used to used to now I'm over that,
Cause holding grudges over love is ancient artifacts,
If I could only find the note to make you understand,
Now sing it softly in your ear and grab you by the hand,
Keep it stuck inside your head like your favorite tune,
And know my hearts a stereo that only plays for you

Chorus
My hearts a stereo,
It beats for you so listen close,
Hear my thoughts in every note,
Oh oh,
Make me your radio,
Turn me up when you feel low,
This melody was meant for you,
So sing-a-long to my stereo
Oh oh oh oh, Oh oh oh
To my stereo
Oh oh oh oh,
So sing a long to my stereo

Verse 2
If I was an old school 50 pound boom box,
Would you hold me on your shoulder wherever you walk,
Would you turn my volume up in front of the cops,
And turn it higher when they told you to stop,
And all I ask is that you don't get mad at me,
When you have to purchase mad D Batteries,
Appreciate every mix tape your friends made,
You never know we come and go like on the interstate,
I think I finally found the note to make you understand,
If you can hear then sing a long and take you by the hand,
Just keep it stuck inside your head like your favorite tune,
And know my hearts a stereo that onlt plays for you

Chorus
My hearts a stereo,
It beats for you so listen close,
Hear my thoughts in every note,
Oh oh,
Make me your radio,
Turn me up when you feel low,
This melody was meant for you,
So sing-a-long to my stereo
Oh oh oh oh, Oh oh oh
To my stereo
Oh oh oh oh,
So sing a long to my stereo

Bridge
I only you pray you never leave me behind,
Because good music can be so hard to find,
Ill take your head and hold it closer to mine,
Thought love was dead but now you're changing my mind,
YEAAAAAAA

Chorus
My hearts a stereo,
It beats for you so listen close,
Hear my thoughts in every note,
Oh oh,
Make me your radio,
Turn me up when you feel low,
This melody was meant for you,
So sing-a-long to my stereo
Oh oh oh oh, Oh oh oh
To my stereo
Oh oh oh oh,
So sing a long to my stereo 


I love Gym Class Heroes since their their 'Cupid Chokehold' days and have been their loyal fan since then. Travie McCoy is simply a genius and  Adam Levine is also one of my favourite singer, famous for his unique and distinctive style so this combo is a win-win for me! 

Fantastic song indeed.. so enjoy! :)


p/s: love the MV too... nice concept 'playing' with the shadows as personal reflections of our inner self..  INGENIOUS!

Step By Wicked Step- Simple Answering Techniques

Hello my lovely students,

I know that SPM is really just around the corner and some of you are bored to death when you have to read and reread all the notes that I gave to all of you previously in my extra classes. However, some of your friends came to see me just now and asked a very interesting question on how to write a simple answer for the question on literature component (Step By Wicked Step). I hope this sample will help some of you, especially for my students who are quite weak in finding and providing evidences from the novel.

So basically, I showed my students this simple template. 

If the question wants you to give one character/moral value/theme/event, give ONLY one and support your answer by giving 3 simple elaborations/evidences from the novel.

e.g.: Choose one character that you like and give your reasons why you like the character.

Your answer  should be something like this:

Character I like : Claudia

Why do I like her? 
a) She is a kind girl.
Elaboration 1
During her father's birthday party, Claudia wears her green pyjamas given by her father's girlfriend, Stella. She decides to do this because she feels that the guests in the party are very rude when they refuse to talk to Stella. They act like Stella is invisible and Claudia feels angry because Stella is actually a very nice person.

b) She is loyal to her mother.
Elaboration 2
Claudia is a very loyal daughter. She knows that her mother hates the fact that her father is happy with a new woman in his life so she pretends that she is unhappy when she has to go to her father's house. Claudia also refuses to accept Stella's kindness because she wants to show that she is loyal to her mother.

c) She is mature and wise.
Elaboration 3
Claudia feels that the guests for her father's birthday party are very rude. They do not want to acknowledge that Stella is her father's new love by giving her a cold shoulder during the party. Claudia is very angry with all those immature adults so she decides to give all of them a lesson by wearing her new green pyjamas and showing it off in front of the guess, hinting that Stella and her are very close. The guests are ashamed so they start to treat Stella nicely after the incident.

So, you have the points and the elaborations. You next step should be writing them nicely in paragraphs.Your answer might look like this.

     From the novel 'Step By Wicked Step' by Anne Fine, I like Claudia from the story the Green Pyjamas. I like Claudia because she is kind, loyal and she can be very mature and wise.

     Claudia is a very kind girl.  During her father's birthday party, Claudia wears her green pyjamas given by her father's girlfriend, Stella. She decides to do this because she feels that the guests in the party are very rude when they refuse to talk to Stella. They act like Stella is invisible and Claudia feels angry because Stella is actually a very nice person.

     Other than that, Claudia is also a loyal daughter to her mother.She knows that her mother hates the fact that her father is happy with a new woman in his life so she pretends that she is unhappy when she has to go to her father's house. Claudia also refuses to accept Stella's kindness because she wants to show that she is loyal to her mother.

     Lastly, Claudia shows that she is very mature and wise. Claudia feels that the guests for her father's birthday party are very rude. They do not want to acknowledge that Stella is her father's new love by giving her a cold shoulder during the party. Claudia is very angry with all those immature adults so she decides to give all of them a lesson by wearing her new green pyjamas and showing it off in front of the guess, hinting that Stella and her are very close. The guests are ashamed so they start to treat Stella nicely after the incident.

     From these three reasons, I choose Claudia as the character I like the most. Claudia shows that she is a good daughter to both her mother and father and she is also kind enough to accept Stella as her future step mother.

There you have it! A simple answer for you to use. I would like to remind all of you that this is not an A script answer. This is just a simple sample answer to help you gain enough points and I hope you would at least write something simple like this rather than not showing any attempt to answer the question, ok? :)

SOME IMPORTANT THINGS THAT EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW...

1) I DO NOT spot questions! My notes in this blog are purely for my  students to use as their reference when they do their homework... 

2) I am not in any position to know what question will come in your exams. If I could do that, I would be a rich psychic by now.. hohoho!

3) Yes, you can write your comments in Bahasa Melayu but I would really appreciate your effort if you try to write in English.DO NOT BE AFRAID TO MAKE MISTAKES because that's the only way that you will learn to upgrade yourself. I will try to correct your sentences, don't worry...  

4) I do not appreciate any harsh or rude comments. Let's keep this blog a happy, clean place for everyone, alright?  :)

THE BOSCOMBE VALLEY MYSTERY- Part 2 (Event / Plot)


MODEL QUESTION AND ANSWER.

Based on the novel above, choose one event which you think is important/you like. Write about the event that you have chosen and give reasons for your choice.

  
       From the novel The Boscombe Valley Mystery by Sir Authur Conan Doyle, one important event for me was the tragic killing of Charles McCarthy which was committed by John Turner. I think this event is important because it is the starting point of the whole issues and conflicts portrayed in the novel.


     In this story, we learn that John Turner was a rich and respected gentleman but in the past, he was known as the notorious Black Jack of Ballarat. Twenty years later, his past caught up with him when Charles McCarthy recognized him and started to blackmail him. John Turner decided to put up with the blackmailing at first but Charles McCarthy had bigger plans. He decided to reap all John Turner’s wealth by forcing his son to marry John Turner’s only daughter, Alice.


     Out of fear of his past being exposed and his love for Alice, John Turner was willing to do anything to protect her. He even goes to the extent of murdering Charles McCarthy so that Alice would be safe from the evil and scheming Charles. However, the murder was committed out of rage, so John Tuner left the murder scene in a hurry. James McCarthy was accused of killing his own father and Alice Turner asked Sherlock Holmes to help her to clean James McCarthy’s name.


     This event is important because it opens my eyes to a lot of hidden stories behind the lives of the Turners and McCarthys. I hate the fact that John Turner was forced to kill Charles McCarthy. However, he had to do it because he loved his daughter very much. I was also very angry at Charles McCarthy for being so greedy but committing a murder was still unacceptable. In the end, John Turner got his punishment and the story ended nicely when Alice and James were married without knowing the truth about their fathers.


State the novel you have chosen.







State some general background of the story and relate it with the event
(the murder of Charles McCarthy)










Describe the event in general
(the murder of Charles McCarthy)






State your own opinion.


I had a few requests from my message box to discuss about 'an/one important event' from the novel. However, this sample answer was done in a hurry because currently I am not that well, so I hope this will help you guys to understand the story more. 

To my new readers, I just want to say 'HELLO!'... Thank you for reading my blog...  :)

To my cheeky students of SMK Seri Mulia (2B and 1D)… I miss you guys very much! Please pray for me, alright!
