Nickel Creek "The Fox"

Image
I first learned this song when I was in elementary school. It's stuck with me ever since.  Here's one of my favorite bands, Nickel Creek, playing "The Fox." I've also included the lyrics to the story below the video.



The fox went out on a chilly night He prayed for the moon to give him light For heâd many a mile to go that night Before he reached the town-o, town-o, town-o Heâd many a mile to go that night, before he reached the town-o
He ran til he came to the farmerâs pen The ducks and the geese were kept therein He said, ãa couple of you are gonna grease my chin, Before I leave this town-o, town-o, town-oä Said a couple of you are gonna grease my chin, before I leave this town-o
He grabbed the great goose by the neck And he threw a duck across his back And he didnât mind the quack, quack And the legs all dangling down-o, down-o, down-o He didnât mind the quack, quack and the legs all dangling down-o
The old grey woman jumped out of bed Out of the window she pop…

Yo-Yo Ma and Lil Buck (Cello and Interpretive Dance)

Image
Here is a wonderful example of two phenomenal artists expressing feeling in their own styles.

Yo-Yo Ma, playing the cello (pronounced "chello") is expressing what he sees the dancer do.
Lil Buck (the dancer) is expressing what he hears Yo-Yo Ma play.
