The first song we listened to was a clapping excerpt in Nina Simone's 1964 song, "Sinnerman."
The following Youtube Video is one of the best version I found because it is the original version and it has lyrics. This song is loved by many people so that they often try to remix it. This song is not remixed. The clapping we heard in class starts around 4:00 minutes.
"Sinnerman" By Nina Simone
The next song we heard was in Engineering class. It was playing in the background of the Rube Goldberg Machine video from Teachertube: Billy Joel's 1989 hit, "We Didn't Start the Fire." Apparently Youtube has the original music video.
Lastly, when we were learning about the vibrations that happen in our faces in order to be able to sing, we heard Bob Dylan for the first time. We were discussing Bob Dylan because we were talking about how someone doesn't have to have a pretty voice to be a good singer. His voice is gravelly and coarse, but he sings on key/on pitch/on the right frequency.
Not only did he used to play guitar, but he sang AND played harmonica as well. Bob Dylan, "Live at the Newport Folk Festival."
