Ages ago one of my year 12 AS Level English Literature classes and I started writing a version of ‘American Boy’ called ‘Wuthering Boy’ – a remix of the Estelle/ Kanye West song based on Emily Bronte’s classic gothic novel. Today, we had our last lesson and decided to finish the song.
Lyrics finished, one student suggested we go to my school’s music tech room and record it, as a lesson was going on in there and all the equipment was set up. Fair enough. Off we went, piled into the recording booth, grabbed the nearest techie to engineer and hit record.
The result, is below – in a hastily constructed youtube video. Teaching is crazy…
One of my students filmed the solo performances! So you get to see me in full flight overexcited chewing gum speck of fluff in hair mode, doing my best Jiminy Cricket impression, accompanied by Miriam P on lead vocal duties. Yep.
