About

Edublog Awards - My Thoughts

everyone's a winnerI'm a competitive person so this post is REALLY hard for me. I'm the kind of guy who will compete to see who can stand on one leg the longest. I'm hyper competitive and work hard because I love doing so but also because of this "competitive streak".

So it has been a hard and painful road to realize that blogging and more generally "education" shouldn't be competitive. It already is so very competitive and we shouldn't make it more. That's why, concerning this year's Edublog awards - I'm saying EVERYONE'S A WINNER BABY!

This feeling has been growing. See this previous post and my creation of the Random ELT Blog generator because I really didn't want nor see the need to rank others, leave others out. Same in our classrooms. When we make thinking, intelligence, study, learning into a competition - we leave a lot of winners out the equation. We really do.

This in no way, is meant to frown upon others participating (and if I'm nominated, no problem, I'm honored). It is just that I want to refrain from these "competitions", in the spirit of my own professional development and understanding (ongoing). It's been a long road for this competitive titan to realize how harmful competition is in our educational system and I want to stick to my guns/beliefs as they stand.

So I'll say it again - YOU, READING THIS - YOU ARE A WINNER!

Here are the lyrics!

I believe in miracles
Where you from
You sexy thing
I believe in miracles
Since you came along
You sexy thing

Miracles right before my eyes
You sexy thing got me hypnotised
Don't stop what ya' doing
What ya' doing to me
My angel from above lying next to me
How did ya' know that I'd be the one
Been a long time coming only just begun
Doing all the things that makes my heart sing
Keep doing what you're doing you sexy thing

How did ya' know I needed you so badly
How did ya' know I gave my heart gladly
Yesterday I was one of a lonely people
Now you're lying next to me
Making love to me

I believe in miracles
Where you from
You sexy thing
You sexy thing
I believe in miracles
Since you came along
You sexy thing

Only yesterday I was on my own
Just another day later my mind was blown
You sexy thing come into my life
Forever and a day it feels so right
How did ya' know that I'd be the one
Been a long time coming only just begun
Doing all the things that makes my heart sing
Keep doing what you're doing you sexy thing

How did ya' know I needed you so badly
How did ya' know I gave my heart gladly
Yesterday I was one of a lonely people
Now you're lying next to me
Making love to me

I believe in miracles
Where you from
You sexy thing
You sexy thing
I believe in miracles
Since you came along
You sexy thing

Kiss me baby
You sexy thing
You sexy thing

Touch me baby
You sexy thing
You sexy thing

Kiss me baby
You sexy thing
You sexy thing

Touch me baby
You sexy thing
You sexy thing

Kiss me baby
You sexy thing
You sexy thing

Touch me baby
You sexy thing
You sexy thing

Kiss me baby
You sexy thing
You sexy thing

Touch me baby
You sexy thing
You sexy thing

You sexy thing

You go, David! :D

I am wondering how the lyrics below fit in :D :D Ummm, they aren't the same as the lyrics in the video (but I like the Sexy Thing song better- of course I remember when it came out on the radio!)

As so often happens with youtube, one thing led to another... I'd dance in my wheelchair to this one! (wish I could have found a concert video with good sound, but no luck)

Ha- even Tiensa (my bid dog) started prancing and barking to that one!

OMG Ellen,

I was doing a million things and talking to a million people when posting those lyrics. I was trying to make a karaoke and that didn't work....ugh....

Actually, listened to that song too on youtube with my best friend, we were grooving to it! Luv it.

I know you understand why I've come to the conclusions I have about "awards"!!!

Anyway, here are the CORRECT lyrics.

Never could believe the things you do to me
I never could believe the way you are
Every day I bless the day that you got through to me
'Cause baby, I believe that you're a star

Everyone's a winner, baby, that's the truth
(Yes, the truth)
Making love to you is such a thrill
Everyone's a winner, baby, that's no lie
(Yes, no lie)
You never fail to satisfy (satisfy)

[Instrumental Interlude]

Never could explain just what was happening to me
Just one touch of you and I'm a flame
Baby, it's amazing just how wonderful it is
That the things we like to do are just the same

Everyone's a winner, baby, that's the truth
(Yes, the truth)
Making love to you is such a thrill
Everyone's a winner, baby, that's no lie
(Yes, no lie)
You never fail to satisfy (satisfy)

[Instrumental Interlude]

Let's do it again

Everyone's a winner, baby, that's the truth
(Yes, the truth)
Making love to you is such a thrill
Everyone's a winner, baby, that's no lie
(Yes, no lie)
You never fail to satisfy (satisfy)

Oh, baby
Oh, baby
Oh, baby
