I heard this song for the first time today and just loved it. I heard it on a remix (Shift Happens) of that great clip : Did You Know/Shift Happens . For anyone who is interested the original presentation can be accessed at this blog The Fischbowl.
Getting back to Colin Hay, I recognised his voice, which pleased me. When my pa died I listened to his song “Waiting For My Real Life to Begin” over and over. I’m not sure why, I just found it quite soothing and comforting. I guess my pa was always a bit of a dreamer and perhaps it embraced that. This song ‘Beautiful World’ is lovely.
I showed the clip to my year 9 students today in the Careers class to assist them in thinking about the kinds of jobs that may be available in the future. They responded so well to it, I shared it with my year 9 English class as well. They found it interesting and inspiring.
I’ve read some really inspiring and uplifting blog posts this week that I’d like to share. It’s a good place for me to store them too I might add, I’m fairly confident I’ll want to reread them.
