Portugal - "Somente o necessário"

video

It's 2010 Portuguese'entry. I hope you all like it!
It's a well-know music from Disney that my students chose.
"The Bare Necessities" is a song, written by Terry Gilkyson, from the animated 1967 Disney film The Jungle Book sung by Phil Harris as Baloo and Bruce Reitherman as Mowgli.
The Lyrics in Portuguese:
Somente o necessário
Eu uso o necessário somente o necessário o extraordinário é demais
Eu digo o necessário somente o necessário por isso é que essa vida eu vivo em paz
Assim é que eu vivo e melhor não há. Eu só quero ter o que a vida me dá
Milhões de abelhas vão fazer fazer o mel pr’a eu comer
E se por acaso eu olhar pr’ó o chão tem formigas em profusão e então
O necessário pr’a fazer você terá você terá
(Repete a canção)
Eu uso o necessário somente o necessário o extraordinário é demais
Eu digo o necessário somente o necessário por isso é que essa vida eu vivo em paz
That’s because this life I live in peace , oh hea

Spain - Mamma mía

Hi, schoolovisioners. Here there is our video from Spain. The song that we've chosen is Mamma mía!. They're from 5th grade in our school and they are very excited about the contest. We hope you enjoy our song. Good luck everybody!

Belgium – Opzij, opzij, opzij / Step aside, step aside, step aside

This song is about how many people are too much in a rush. People have no time to stand still and enjoy the little things… And since we were last in the competition we too had to rush to be ready in time. Now we will stand still and enjoy the other video’s and relax! We'd like to thank Herman Van Veen for letting us use his song!

Schoolovision 2010 Belgium from Dave Schrauwen on Vimeo.



The lyrics in Dutch:

Opzij, opzij, opzij,
maak plaats, maak plaats, maak plaats,
wij hebben ongelofelijke haast.
Opzij, opzij, opzij,
want wij zijn haast te laat,
wij hebben maar een paar minuten tijd.

We moeten rennen, springen, vliegen, duiken, vallen, opstaan en weer doorgaan.
We kunnen nu niet langer, we kunnen nu niet langer blijven staan.

Een andere keer misschien
dan blijven we wel slapen
en kunnen dan misschien als het echt moet,
wat over koetjes, voetbal en de lotto praten,
nou dag tot ziens, adieu het gaat je goed.

We moeten rennen, springen, vliegen, duiken, vallen, opstaan en weer doorgaan.
We kunnen nu niet langer, we kunnen nu niet langer blijven staan.


The lyrics in English:

Step aside, step aside, step aside
make room, make room, make room,
we’re in an incredible hurry!
Step aside, step aside, step aside,
because we are almost too late
We only have a few minutes left!

We must run, jump, fly, dive, fall, get up and continue again.
We can’t no longer, we can’t no longer stand still.

Maybe another time
then we might be able to sleep over
and when it really has to be,
we can talk about cows, football and the lottery,
well good day, goodbye, so long, I hope you take care!

We must run, jump, fly, dive, fall, get up and continue again.
We can’t no longer, we can’t no longer stand still.



Best wishes from: Mattias, Rinaldo, Mats, Dries, Steven, Anne, Hanne, Quirina, Lotte, Bjorn, Lena, Annelies, Birte, Jens, Thomas, Maarten, Emma, Merel, Frederik, Jobbe, Ine and Mr. Dave

We wish you all the best of luck and we liked being in the competition very much already!

The Czech republic - "Drak" (The Dragon)

Here is our entry for Schoolovision 2010. This year we present the song "Drak" (The Dragon).



The song was composed by Ales Cuma from Suzaplay band just for us. The part of the video was shooted at the main city square.
You can use subtitles added to the video to understand the lyrics.

We had a lot of fun with the Dragon and we hope you will like it.

FRANCE- Lo Brisa-Pè

Here is our entry for Schoolovision 2010. It's quite different from last year's entry as we chose to sing and dance a traditional occitanian song. The occitanian language is a very old one, spoken in the South-West of France before this region was integrated into the kingdom of France. We hope you like it!
You can also see our very nice village in the video, maybe one day you'll come and visit us?

Lo Brisa-Pè

Ont te'n vas, te'n vas Jan Maria
Ont te'n vas , te'n vas de bon matin?
- Me'n vau a la vila
Cercar une filha
Quand torni a l'ostal
Soi piètre coma un gal

Ont te'n vas, te'n vas Jan Maria
Ont te'n vas , te'n vas de bon matin?
- Me'n vau a la noça
Faire la bambocha
Quand torni a l'ostal
Soi magre coma un gal

Ont te'n vas, te'n vas Jan Maria
Ont te'n vas , te'n vas de bon matin?
- Me'n va a la picina
Nadar ambe la cosina
Ne torni a l'ostal
Fièr coma un perdigal.

England- Aiken Drum

Here is our entry for 2010.



Our whole school is on the video!
Our song is not English but as we have now discovered a Scottish traditional song. We like to sing this song at our school. The pupils have made some super illustrations but due a technical hitch...they are to follow!
All the best to you from all the pupils at Church Aston and Annie :)

CYPRUS - Loulla mou Maroulla mou

This is a Cyprus folk song, in Cypriot dialect. We decided to change part of the song and transformed it into a hip hop tempo, while the refrain is kept as the traditional song. People used to sing it after lunchtime when all the family gathered together. It was usually sung without music where people kept the beat by knocking the forks on their dishes.
Enjoy our song with movie clips taken from our village, Agros and we hope you like our Cyprus traditional costumes…





Bulgaria song - We expect the impossible






We expect the impossible


I hear the colours
I draw with music in class
Are you following my thought again?
I want more attention about a cover of a magazine.
quadratic equation,devision
I know the exact decision.
Chorus:
Hey,hear us together!
Get in class with us!
We know more,we can more,
we want our things.
I am still a little girl
but soon i'll be in class.
We are the best in dancing
We jump for all of you
Football is my passion
and i'll be Berbatov.
The Oscar is only mine,
it's about my enormous knowledge.
Chorus:
Hey,you know!
I want laugh and dreams!
We know more,we can more,
we want just wonderful things!

Sweden - MACKEN

Welcome to Roy and Roger´s fillingstation and garage. Roy and Roger are two brothers that always do everything together. They are not very clever, and they make a lot of stupid mistakes. But they are happy anyway. Customers come and customers go. One day a big star appears, and for once Roy and Roger become heroes.

Coline, our EU-volonteer from France, who have made the film, chose to show the "dramatic" film clip first.

Good luck to all of you! Anna-Lena

Iceland - Dancing Queen

Hello
Here comes the video from Iceland. The 5th grade pupils were in the biggest acting role this time. The biggest part of the video was taken on a trip to an island called Videy close to Reykjavik. They were visiting John Lennon’s monument. His wife, Yoko Ono rose this monument some years ago. This is a strong light beam who lights up the sky in October to December every year. This year we are presenting the ABBA melody The Dancing Queen. Please have a look.

Germany - Anyplace, Anywhere, Anytime

Hungary- Tavaszi szél/ Süss fel nap

The 5th grader pupils of Károly Kós Primary and Art School could not decide between two songs, so finally they prepared two short videoclips.


1. Tavaszi szél (Spring wind) - it was also sung by Freddie Mercury in Budapest :)

video

Lyrics:

Tavaszi szél vizet áraszt, virágom, virágom.
Minden madár társat választ, virágom, virágom.

Hát én immár kit válasszak, virágom, virágom.
Te engemet, én tégedet, virágom, virágom.


2. Süss fel nap (Come out, Sun)


video

Lyrics:

Süss fel nap,
fényes nap,
kertek alatt a ludaim megfagynak.

Good luck to every participant. :)

Best wishes,

Janka, Máté, Bogi, Évi, Niki, Ádám, Zsani, Gizmó, Bence, Máté, Peti, Nelli, Rita, Barbi, Orsi
and Miss Varga

Norway- Meaning with Life

Four boys in class 7A have made both song and lyrics for this video.

They've got their inspiration from 3 doors down and heavy rock music. The song is a bit depressive, even though the title is more optimistic: Meaning with life.

We wish you all the very best luck in the competition!

Kind regards, class 7A, Bergfrid and Eva

Greece- Mia nea arhi

Song:"Mia nea arhi" (One new beginning)

"...it's true we'll make a better day, just you and me..."

Scoolovision 2010-Greece from Elena Vaivai on Vimeo.

Scotland - Until the End

We are not about to invade your country, so don't worry!
This song is about Scotland in the 8th Century.
The Fighting Men of Fib, the army, are marching to conquer their enemies!
We first performed this song in January, at a special theatre production, called King Loth.
Best wishes from Scotland to everyone- we hope you enjoy it!



Until the End


We, the fighting men of Fib,
March on distant lands,
We conquer all our enemies,
Vanquished at our hands

We the fighting men of Fib
Come to claim these lands
With sword and spear no mercy shown,
You’ll perish at our hands

We fight for Mordred, until the death
We fight for Mordred, until the end!
Hey……..Hey……………Hey

Men of Fib, fall into rank
Attention for your Lord,
Without a thought, we must obey
Lord Mordred’s every word…

We await your orders patiently
Poised to do our worst
Our weapons bear for you alone
Only blood will clench our thirst

We fight for Mordred, until the death
We fight for Mordred, until the end!
Hey……..Hey……………Hey

You boy, stand in line!
Eyes front, you filthy scoundrel, don’t disgrace this army’s name!
General, bide your time
Soon we march for battle, so prepare yourselves to DIE!

We fight for Mordred, until the death
We fight for Mordred, until the end!
We fight for Mordred, until the death
We fight for Mordred, until the end!
Hey…….Hey………Hey!

Finland: Hi And Ho - We Plant Trees!

Eno Primary School represents Finland in Schoolovision 2010. Our song is called Hi And Ho - We Plant Trees!. It is about the importance of tree planting and peace. This song is also a title song for a global ENO Project that was founded at Eno Primary School in 2000. Our next tree planting day will take place 21st of May 2010.
You can learn some Finnish in the chorus part and welcome to download sheet music, lyrics and illustrated movements for the song here! Special thanks to singers, teachers in the band, Santeri on drums and our "Paganini" in violin, Joonas. "Grow with them and learn to live in peace and harmony!"

Hi And Ho - We Plant Trees! by Eno Elementary, Finland

We need to save the forest
It has to be our goal.
For many different species
It plays a major role

We want to have some action
Save life with our own way.
It gives us satisfaction
We celebrate today:

Hi and ho - we plant trees
For environment and peace!

North and South, East and West
Trees will grow: high and low.

Hi and ho - we plant trees
Want to see a lot of green!

Grow with them and learn to live
In peace and harmony.

Estonia - A song about a song (Laul laulust)

Laul laulust from Ingrid Maadvere on Vimeo.



A song doesn’t feed you or give you a drink
A song doesn’t set our table.
A song is not made for eating
It’s joy that makes you sing!

If you’re hungry, do some work
The bigger eaters must work harder!
Let the song fly across the sky
The tune will never fade away.

Beauty can never be bottled
A song can never be turned into bread
But still you can’t live without
Singing and playing!

Let the song keep you warm in the cold
Let it give you strength
The song will feed your soul
Music will warm your heart.

A word can’t be eaten
A song can’t be drunk
But still I’ll say it again:
Without joy there’s only sadness!

Without music you don’t feel well
Without joy it’s all so dull
Beauty can’t be bottled
Beauty will live forever.

Malta - "Il-Karozzin"

Our song for this year is “Il-Karozzin.”

“ Il-Karozzin” or “The Horsedrawn Carriage” was a popular means of transport in the Maltese islands in olden days. This means of transport was a common scene and one could see and hear the sound of hooves beating and clicking on the ground as the horsedrawn carriage passed through villages and towns, through the countryside and also along coast roads of the Maltese islands. The poor people depended on the horsedrawn carriage to take them on errands outside their village. The Horse Drawn Carriage was also used on special feasts and occasions such as Carnival or a wedding ceremony. Today the horsedrawn carriage is popular among tourists who would like to go round our magnificent and silent old capital city Imdina and today’s capital city Valletta.

Good Luck to all participants.

Popular( folk) music is our most precious treasure enshrined and passed from generation to generation and we are pleased to share it with you this year, through this song.

Poland - Zielone Ufoludki (Green Aliens)


Zielone Ufoludki (Green Aliens) from Marek Fularz on Vimeo.


My brother still read about aliens
Stars, planets and orbits
Nothing else he doesn’t want to hear
Even he write letters to the UFO
Finally, he deserved to be rewarded
And he saw a flying saucer
Because they landed in the garden today
Vehicle of the green Aliens

Chorus: Green hair, green shoes
            The whole Aliens are green

AUSTRIA - "Die lustigen Hammerschmiedgsölln" (The jolly blacksmith assistants)

Our contribution is a traditional Austrian folk-song.
Bettina, the Native-Speaker of our school helped us to translate the lyrics :
We are the jolly blacksmith assistants we can go away, we can stay,
we can do as we like.
Whether we are black(dirty) or white(clean)
doesn`t matter as long as we can wash ourselves.
So blacksmiths hammer as you please
and when we`ve hammered enough we`ll be quiet.

Our vocalists and dancers are 6 years old - the chickens of the school!
Greetings and good luck to you!!!!
