Music Monday: "Forget You" by Cee Lo Green

Today for Music Monday, we watched Cee Lo Green's hit song and video, "Forget You."

You can watch Cee Lo Green's video "Forget You" again above.

His name is pronounced "Sea Low," not "she low" -- but some students think it sounds like "싫어"! That's funny.

In the song, Cee Lo sings about his ex-girlfriend. She broke up with him because he wasn't rich. She only wants to date rich men.

The song is very popular. It was recently on "Glee," where a famous actress named Gwenyth Paltrow sang "Forget You." You can watch that again on youtube here.

Family Feud Surveys

Next week, we will play a game called Family Feud. In Family Feud, 100 people answer some questions. Then, two families compete, trying to guess the most common answer to the questions.

In this video, two families are trying to guess the most common answers to the question "Name a famous person with the first name Michael":

Today, students interviewed each other with simple questions, like "What is your favorite pizza topping" or "Name a U.S. state." Tomorrow, I will add up all of the answers to create the Family Feud game.

We will play the game next Tuesday -- the winners can choose which movie we will watch during the last week of class!
