Attachment 5.1 – Footloose by Kenny Loggins – lyrics

Footloose

Performed by Kenny Loggins

Been working so hard
I'm punching my card
Eight hours for what?
Oh, tell me what I got
I've got this feeling
That time's just holding me down
I'll hit the ceiling
Or else I'll tear up this town

Now I gotta cut loose
Footloose, kick off the Sunday shoes
Please, Louise, pull me off of my knees
Jack, get back, come on before we crack
Lose your blues, everybody cut footloose

You're playing so cool, obeying every rule
Deep way down in your heart
You're burning, yearning for the some-somebody to tell you
That life ain't passing you by
I'm trying to tell you
It will if you don't even try

You'll get by if you'd only cut loose
Footloose, kick off the Sunday shoes
Ooh-whee, Marie, shake it, shake it for me
Whoah, Milo come on, come on let's go
Lose your blues, everybody cut footloose

You got to turn me around
And put your feet on the ground
Gotta take the hold of all

I'm turning loose, footloose, kick off the Sunday shoes
Please, Louise, pull me off of my knees
Jack, get back, come on before we crack
Lose your blues, everybody cut footloose

Footloose, kick off the Sunday shoes
Please, Louise, pull me off of my knees
Jack, get back, come on before we crack
Lose your blues, everybody cut, everybody cut
Everybody cut, everybody cut
Everybody cut, everybody cut
Everybody, everybody cut footloose

Footloose, songwriters: Kenny Loggins / Dean Pitchford, lyrics: © Sony/ATV Music Publishing LLC, copied under s113P, accessed 16 September 2019.

Attachment 13.1 – Technology and music

When Vivaldi was writing music, the people making violins and other string instruments were learning new skills and making instruments that were of better quality.

The violin was able to play a lot more challenging music and to make different sounds. Because of this, Vivaldi used a lot of string instruments in his music.

Learning how to make things better is an example of technological development.

What effect has better technology had on music?

What instruments do we have now that Vivaldi wouldn’t have had access to?

Do we listen to music in different ways now?

Where can we listen to music?

Do you think Vivaldi would have liked composing music today?
