A meeting point for you and me

Long live Life / Long live English

Are you ready for a new year/ a new course?

If this is your first year at The Official Language School, then you’re about to start a course in English that can take you 6 academic years to complete if you begin the 1st year of the lowest level, the basic. Spanish people often misuse the English word ‘course’ since our similar  word ‘curso’ is used in our language to refer either to a course or to an academic year. That said, no matter whether this is your first year or a new year at this language school, I hope you can get the most of it.

Anyway, I thought we could begin the new year with a bit of music. What about  Viva la Vida, by Coldplay? You’ve probably heard this song more than once before , but I can’t help feeling its title message is great: Long live Life.

I’ve been searching the Internet trying to find out about people’s suggestions on the meaning of the song. Should the Biblical references be understood in their literal sense and thus conclude that it talks about Christ, or should we interpret the whole lyrics refer to any leader that falls into disgrace after living dishonestly? Here there are some interesting views on the ideas the songs conveys.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

This is Ayla’s suggestion: a wonderful choir for a great song.

  1. I don’t know the real meaning of this nice song, I`ve read a lot of things about this, but probably the most credible version (and the most beautiful too) is that the song is an honoring to the woman and her history.

    I like to share an alternative video:

    Sorry for mistakes ;o)

    • Thank you for your comment and suggestion. I love you choice of video; it’s amazing. It sent shivers down my spine! I was really moved by the intensity and joy in their voices.
