TGIF: Unpack your adjectives June 5, 2009

Posted by Jill (@bonnjill) in Fun stuff, TGIF.

There are nine Schoolhouse Rock – Grammar Rock videos in total. We are getting down to the end. Today’s video is on adjectives and features Blossom Dearie on vocals. According to Wikipedia, “Blossom Dearie was an American jazz singer and pianist, often performing in the bebop genre and known for her distinctive girlish voice.” A camping theme is used in this video to describe adjectives. As we all know, adjectives are words that describe or modify another person or thing in the sentence. I personally love the turtle. He’s adorable. I hope you enjoy this one and have a great weekend!

Blossom Dearie was great; she passed away in Feb at age 82. Her girly voice was best when she sang risqué lyrics, like here:

Her vocal accuracy is excellent there.

I can’t find her eponymous blues song, where she sings “my daily occupation/is stealing other women’s men”, but you should check her out – it’s worth it!
