My ethnomusicology design

Well my stream (Orange Nation) we did a project on ethnomusicology. Ethnomusicology is the study of social and cultural aspects of music and dance in local and global context. In our case we are doing african american cultural music. We will see how our music today ties back with it's roots back in Arfica. We had to chose three songs one anytime anywhere, 1973 or earlier, and one from a non-English speaking country. I chose The Beach Boys "I Get Around", The Beach Boys "Fun, Fun, Fun", and Baaba Maal "Miyaaable".

Lyrics to The Beach Boys "I Get Around"

Round round,get around
I get around
Yeah
Get around ooooooo
I get around
From town to town
Get around round round i get around
Im a real cool head
Get around round round i get around
Im making real good bread

I'm gettin' bugged driving up and down the same old strip
I gotta finda new place where the kids are hip

My buddies and me are getting real well known
Yeah, the bad guys know us and they leave us alone
I get around
Get around round round I get around
From town to town
Get around round round I get around
I'm a real cool head
Get around round round I get around
I'm makin' real good bread
Get around round round I get around
I get around
Round
Get around round round oooo
Wah wa ooo
Wah wa ooo
Wah wa ooo

We always take my car cause it's never been beat
And we've never missed yet with the girls we meet

None of the guys go steady cause it wouldn't be right
To leave your best girl home now on Saturday night

I get around
Get around round round I get around
town to town
Get around round round I get around
I'm a real cool head
Get around round round I get around
I'm makin' real good Bread
Get around round round I get around

Round round get around

Get around round round I get around
Get around round round I get around
Wah wa ooo

Ahh ooo ooo
Get around round round I get around
Ahh ooo ooo
Get around round round I get around
Ahh ooo ooo.

Lyrics to The Beach Boys "Fun, Fun, Fun"

Well, she got her daddy's car
And she cruised through the hamburger stand, now.
Seems she forgot all about the library
Like she told her old man, now
And with the radio blastin'
Goes cruisin' just as fast as she can, now
And she'll have fun, fun, fun,
'Til her daddy takes the T-Bird away.

Well, the girls can't stand her
'Cause she walks, looks, and drives like an ace, now.
She makes the Indy 500
Look like the Roman Chariot Race, now.
A lot of guys try to catch her,
But she leads 'em on a wild goose chase, now
And she'll have fun, fun, fun,
'Til her daddy takes the T-Bird away.

Well, you knew all along
That your dad was gettin' wise to you, now
And since he took your set of keys,
You've been thinkin' that your fun is all through, now,
But you can come along with me
'Cause we've got a lot of things to do, now
And we'll have fun, fun, fun,
Now that daddy took the T-Bird away.
And we'll have fun, fun, fun,
Now that daddy took the T-Bird away.
