HELP! I need an idea for a song(s)

Hey everyone,

I am in charge of making an iPod playlist for our professional development day next Monday. I need to come up with a theme song that relates to our theme: Getting to know other people's stories. I have been online for hours and can't really come up with anything! HELP! Does your school have a theme song?

I am starting to get freaked out!

Nicholette:

I don't know if this goes with your theme, but something that was played at our first faculty meeting of the year was "All Star" by Smashmouth...it was on the Shrek soundtrack. It pumped us up and had a good message!

Good luck!

I went to some lyrics sites to search

I found these, below, but I can't say I know the tunes to each of these. Maybe, if the lyrics fit what you want, you can look for the tune...

(I noticed that on some lyrics sites you can search for words within a song, so that might help, too.)

song titles "getting to know you" theme

Getting to Know You
http://www.lyricsandsongs.com/song/234831.html

Song Name: GETTING TO KNOW YOU
Title: Artist: UNKNOWN Song: GETTING TO KNOW YOU Album: SOUNDTRACK - THE KING AND I

GETTING TO KNOW YOU

[ANNA]

[Spoken] It's a very ancient saying,
But a true and honest thought,
That if you become a teacher,
By your pupils you'll be taught.

[Singing] As a teacher I've been learning --
You'll forgive me if I boast --
And I've now become an expert,
On the subject I like most.

[Spoken] Getting to know you.

[Singing] Getting to know you,
Getting to know all about you.
Getting to like you,
Getting to hope you like me.

Getting to know you,
Putting it my way,
But nicely,
You are precisely,
My cup of tea.

[ANNA AND THE MOTHERS]

Getting to know you,
Getting to know all about you.
Getting to like you,
Getting to hope you like me.

Getting to know you,
Putting it my way,
But nicely,
You are precisely,

[ANNA]

My cup of tea.

[ALL]

Getting to know you,
Getting to feel free and easy
When I am with you,
Getting to know what to say

Haven't you noticed
Suddenly I'm bright and breezy?
Because of all the beautiful and new
Things I'm learning about you
Day by day.

Getting to know you,
Getting to feel free and easy
When I am with you,
Getting to know what to say

Haven't you noticed
Suddenly I'm bright and breezy?
Because of all the beautiful and new
Things I'm learning about you
Day .. by ... day.

TELL YOUR STORY (SING YOUR SONG)
http://www.lyricsandsongs.com/song/491411.html

Tell your story, sing your song
Can't you see I'm flying
Through the mountains, to the sun
Catch the daylight dying
Tell your story, sing your song
Fortune's wheel is turning
Time will pass, and you'll be gone
Teach the life you're learning
------------------
Like To Get To Know You

Spanky & Our Gang lyrics

But I'd like to get to know you
Yes, I would
But I'd like to get to know you
If I could
But I'd would like to get to know you

Finally I found
Searching all around
Just was not the answer
One I thought was true
Looked a bit like you
I figured I might chance her

But I'd like to get to know you
Yes, I would
But I'd like to get to know you
If I could
But I'd would like to get to know you

Hardly need to say
She went on her way
Said it was all over
Well, it's been some time
And I guess that I'm
Just meant to be a rover

But I'd like to get to know you
Yes, I would
But I'd like to get to know you
If I could
But I'd would like to get to know you

Well, I can't promise
That I'll spend a day with you
I can't promise that I'll find a way with you
I can't promise
No, I can't promise
That I'll love you

But I'd like to get to know you
Yes, I would
Yes, I'd like to get to know you
If I could
I'd like to get to know you
Know you, know
I'd like to get to know you
Know you, know
I'd like to get to know you
Know you, know
Yes, I'd like to get to know you
Know you, know

Diff'rent Strokes Theme Lyrics
http://www.lyricsondemand.com/tvthem...keslyrics.html

by Alan Thicke, Gloria Loring and Al Burton - Diff'rent Strokes Lyrics

Now, the world don't move to the beat of just one drum,
What might be right for you, may not be right for some.
A man is born, he's a man of means.
Then along come two, they got nothing but their jeans.

But they got, Diff'rent Strokes.
It takes, Diff'rent Strokes.
It takes, Diff'rent Strokes to move the world.

Everybody's got a special kind of story
Everybody finds a way to shine,
It don't matter that you got not alot
So what,
They'll have theirs, and you'll have yours, and I'll have mine.
And together we'll be fine....

Because it takes, Diff'rent Strokes to move the world.
Yes it does.
It takes, Diff'rent Strokes to move the world.

for a fun song...."we Go Together" - from Grease

Or..the Beatles song..."With a Little Help from my Friends"...(I think that's the name of it....my brain is drained right now...the heat...lol.)

Or...for an inspirational touch, what about "I Believe I can Fly", Wind Beneath my Wings"....

What about "We are the world"
It starts "we are the world we are the children" I did it with my class severallll years ago and it has a long lasting meaning!
good luck!

I like a song called "Every Child a Promise" by a Hawiian singer called Robi Kahakalau.

In every child there is a promise
There's great potential in their hearts and minds
They only need a little kindness
Patience and Guidance to help them fly

In every child a promise
Love them so they can see
Each one is very special
Be part of their dreams

This song will give you the touchie feelies and very likely no one will have heard it before so they will only associate it with your program. I've played it a lot in my classroom.

I also like an African song called "Awa Awa" The tone is very uplifting although you will not know what is being said. My 6th graders love this tune. It is on the soundtrack for the movie of The Wild Thornberries.
