Today in Music Robins Listen and Appraised a new song, – Gotta Be Me by Secret Agent 23 Skidoo:
The song is all about being unique and being yourself. Mr Lo introduced the following information:
Secret Agent 23 Skidoo is a Hip-hop musician from Asheville, USA. He has toured
nationally as a rapper and producer in Granola Funk Express and shared the stage with
the likes of Run DMC, Mos Def and P Funk. In this song he encourages kids to be themselves, overcome fears, appreciate family, and
above all else, “Have Fun”. Listen out for the repetitive “I gotta be me’” in the chorus and
the rap. Listen for the drum loop and piano and horn section samples, and the use of
sampled school children singing the hook in the chorus.
We also reviewed last week’s song, “Stop, Bullying!” and had another go on the rhythm games.
We then, had a go at writing our own rap lyrics and performing them. Listen below!
