Text : protest songs A Kidjo

One of the purposes of music is to help you forget your troubles; another, help you learn from your troubles (some do), and, some will help you do something about your troubles.

Pete Seeger

36 réflexions au sujet de « Terminales 2018-2019 »

  1. when I first saw the scene of the execution I had pity for this man until I see what he did and then all in all I told myself he deserved it and that death was too sweet for the suffering he inflicted on these people.

  2. After watching this video I have mixed feelings. On the one hand I find it very shoking and sad to see this death scene with the lethal injection and thé woman’s tears but on the other hand the flashback scenes make me furious. For me rape is the worst crime. So I can’t tell if his dead is a good or a bad thing.

  3. Gun control is an interesting theme and very topical. The posters we had to describ are very impressive by the message they hide, I like this theme. All of them are clearly explicit and touched every kind of people.

    1. Psycho -not Psychose.
      The links are on the word document you have to open. This document in on the page « Lycéens au cinéma ».

  4. the video with Evan really touched me because it shows that some people are in distress and that no one sees the signs and that if we see them it will prevent them from making big mistakes.

  5. Music can make a link between the political life and the citizens who don’t follow these news like protest songs. Moreover, i think music can also help us in our daily life because of the numerous kinds of music we can listen to, like hip-hop, jazz, rap, RnB, … However these songs don’t always make a mark in the political life. So we can say that music is a powerful tool, like the media, that the humans have to control.

  6. I agree with Pete Seeger. The purposes of music, and all of the other arts, are to entertain you and to teach you something. I think the general purpose of music (or art in general) is to share our worldview or broadcast an idea.

  7. I don’t totally agree with Pete Seeger, there is a lot of music which allows you « to help you forget your troubles » but there is also a lot of music which inform you about problem you have never heard of before. And these songs are called protest songs.

  8. I agree with Pete Seeger because for me when I have some problems I listen to music and it reminds me of good old memories. It makes me feel like I’m running away from all my problems.

  9. I personaly think that Pete Seeger’s quotation is true for any music, whatever its genre. On the one hand, music truly has a philosophical meaning that brings you to reflect on yourself or on the world. On the other hand, music, with its lyrics, can make you face your problems and react about them.

  10. I agree with Pete Seeger, I think that music makes us forget the problems of life. In addition, it allows us to take our minds off negative feelings and put us in a good mood. We are as secure as in a cocoon.

  11. I agree with him because I think that some music can have a very strong impact on our life, in good or event bad moment : a music can be etched for ever in our mind. Moreover, music can make us dream, make us forget problems of life, for a moment, suspend the time.

  12. It is so good to listen to Bob Dylan, the first singer rewarded by the nobel price of literature. And thank you for the remix, I love this artist.

  13. I agree with Pete Seeger, in my opinion music is a great way to help us with our troubles because when we listen to music it’s like we are in another world !!!!

  14. « One of the purposes of music is to help you forget your troubles; another, help you learn from your troubles (some do), and, some will help you do something about your troubles. »
    Pete Seeger

    I really think that this quotation has a deep meaning and specifies the music’s role as a mean to solve your problems, think about yourself…
    Moreover, I believe that music can just create a link between people, whatever their race, their skin color and just bring everybody together, even if they dont share the same ideas.

  15. The fact that big names of the music industry, like Kanye West or Bob Dylan, who used music to protest, affects even more people and brings a new category of population to sensibilize them and rally them to their cause. Recently, there are a lot of artists who protest against Donald Trump like Mac miller for exemple.

  16. I agree with Pete Seeger :

    « One of the purposes of music is to help you forget your troubles; another, help you learn from your troubles (some do), and, some will help you do something about your troubles. »

    Music makes you realize the reality , the problem that you have . Music makes you want to change , to achieve something, to go forward!!

    However, you sometimes listen to music just not to hear your parents or someone . You stay in your circle ( bubble) and close your eyes in the face of the reality.
    So music is not always a good way or solution for your problems.

  17. I think that the meaning of the quotation is that music is a great way to go throught your troubles, and also to learn about them.

    Music is a universal and popular way to spread a feeling around the world, and so lot of people can identify to it.

  18. The video  » The Women of Dagenham  » is very important to show the reality of the era !! The struggle for equality between men and woman…which still exists today !! ( but for different causes )

    Inequality in general is a (subject/topic) that we will hear ( more and more ) and for a long time !! All over the world …

      1. The trailer of Made in Dagenham looks very interesting because through this film we see that the fight for equal pay hasn’t been easy and that women have had to fight relentlessly to establish themselves in a society dominated by men.

    1. Thanks Maïa ! There is also the ‘Methodology’ page of this website that is dedicated to the Terminales…but also other grades.

  19. The movie Made un Dagenham seems to be very good. The reconstitution of the costumes, the atmosphere allows us a real dive info the 60’s. Furthermore, the movie seems to mix the women’s struggle for equal pay, a very important and serious subject, with a little bit of humour and beauty.

  20. The movie Good morning England seems really cool! It’s on Netflix for the ones who want to watch it. You can find it in streaming vostfr as well.
