Follow up on the decades class

April 17, 2009

We plowed through five decades of the three top selling singles — the last two decades got short shrift: no matter, they might as well have leapt to their feet singing along with Backstreet Boys or Kelly Clarkson.

We went from old to new. Few had heard of Bobby Darin, or the genre “bubblegum.” I kept wondering whether I had remembered it wrong. We looked at Madonna’s erota-spiritual “Like a prayer” but ran out of time for hearing “Boom Boom Pow.”

The class LOVED Gloria Gaynor singing “I will survive” and in that the words were on the screen in front of them, it turned into Karaoke at 10:15 am.
