10 песен, которые нужно выучить, чтобы улучшить английское произношение

Познавать тонкости иностранного языка при помощи песен не только легко, но и приятно. Правда, при этом следует придерживаться определенной последовательности: сначала разобрать каждую строчку текста (с грамматической и синтаксической точек зрения), затем выяснить значение непонятных слов и словосочетаний и только потом приступать к заучиванию и пению.

mbz-one.ru собрал композиции, благодаря которым можно совмещать приятное с полезным: наслаждаться творчеством и работать над английским.

Pushing through the darkness, still another mile.

Well, baby, they are tumbling down.

But I never really had a doubt.
Standing in the light of your halo,

Burning through my darkest night.

But this doesn’t even feel like falling.
Gravity can’t forget
To pull me back to the ground again.

[Chorus]

I always needed time on my own.
I never thought I’d need you there
When I cry.
And the days feel like years
When I’m alone.
And the bed where you lie
Is made up on your side.

When you walk away,
count the steps that you take.
Do you see how much I need you right now?

[Chorus:]
When you’re gone,
The pieces of my heart are missing you.
When you’re gone,
The face I came to know is missing too.
When you’re gone,
The words I need to hear
To always get me through the day,
And make it OK.
I miss you.

I’ve never felt this way before.
Everything that I do
Reminds me of you.
And the clothes you left,
They lie on my floor,
And they smell just like you.
I love the things that you do.

When you walk away,
count the steps that you take.
Do you see how much I need you right now?

[Chorus]

We were made for each other.
Out here forever,
I know we were.
Yeah, yeah.

All I ever wanted was for you to know,
Everything I do, I give my heart and soul.
I can hardly breathe,
I need to feel you here with me, yeah.

[Chorus]

Adele — One and Only

Слышна разница между «ch» и «c». Запоминается чтение «know». Отрабатывается буква «o» в различных сочетаниях и звуки, которые дает «y» в конце слов.

You’ve been on my mind.
I grow fonder every day,
Lose myself in time,
Just thinking of your face.
God only knows
Why it’s taken me so long
To let my doubts go.
You’re the only one that I want.

I don’t know why I’m scared,
I’ve been here before.
Every feeling, every word,
I’ve imagined it all.
You’ll never know if you never try
To forgive your past and simply be mine.

I dare you to let me be your, your one and only.
Promise I’m worthy to hold in your arms.
So come on and give me a chance
To prove that I’m the one who can
Walk that mile until the end starts.

If I’ve been on your mind,
You hang on every word I say,
You lose yourself in time at the mention of my name.
Will I ever know how it feels to hold you close?
And have you tell me whichever road I choose, you’ll go?

I don’t know why I’m scared,
‘Cause I’ve been here before.
Every feeling, every word,
I’ve imagined it all.
You’ll never know if you never try
To forgive your past and simply be mine.

I dare you to let me be your, your one and only.
I promise I’m worthy to hold in your arms.
So come on and give me a chance
To prove that I’m the one who can
Walk that mile until the end starts.

know it ain’t easy, giving up your heart.
know it ain’t easy, giving up your heart.
(Nobody’s perfect, trust me I’ve learned it.)
know it ain’t easy, giving up your heart.
(Nobody’s perfect, trust me I’ve learned it.)
know it ain’t easy, giving up your heart.
know it ain’t easy, giving up your heart.
know it ain’t easy, giving up your heart.

So I dare you to let me be your, your one and only.
I promise I’m worthy to hold in your arms.
So come on and give me a chance
To prove that I’m the one who can
Walk that mile until the end starts.
Come on and give me a chance
To prove that I’m the one who can
Walk that mile until the end starts.

Aretha Franklin — I Say a Little Prayer

Для тех, кто не может запомнить правила чтения «e» и «ee» в окончании. В тексте также есть различные буквосочетания с «a».

From the moment I wake up,
Before I put on my make-up,
say a little prayer for you.
While combing my hair now,
And wondering what dress to wear now,
say a little prayer for you.

Forever and ever, you’ll stay in my heart
And I will love you.
Forever and ever, we never will part.
Oh, how I love you.
Together, forever, that’s how it must be.
To live without you
Would only mean heartbreak for me.

I run for the bus, dear,
While riding I think of us, dear,
say a little prayer for you.
At work I just take time
And all through my coffee-break time,
say a little prayer for you.

Forever and ever, you’ll stay in my heart
And I will love you.
Forever and ever, we never will part.
Oh, how I love you.
Together, forever, that’s how it must be.
To live without you
Would only mean heartbreak for me.

say a little prayer for you.
say a little prayer for you.

My darling, believe me,
For me there is no one but you!
Please love me too.
And I’m in love with you.
Answer my prayer now, babe.

Forever and ever, you’ll stay in my heart
And I will love you.
Forever and ever, we never will part.
Oh, how I love you.
Together, forever, that’s how it must be.
To live without you
Would only mean heartbreak for me.

Ben E. King — Stand by Me

Помогает запомнить произношение букв «u» и «a» в различных вариантах закрытых слогов и в буквосочетаниях.

When the night has come
And the land is dark,
And the moon is the only light we see,
No, I won’t be afraid.
Oh, I won’t be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me.

So, darling, darling, stand by me.
Oh, stand by me.
Oh, stand, stand by me, stand by me.

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall,
And the mountains
Should crumble to the sea,
I won’t cry, I won’t cry.
No, I won’t shed a tear
Just as long as you stand, stand by me.

And darling, darling, stand by me.
Oh, stand by me.
Oh, stand, stand by me, stand by me.

Whenever you’re in trouble,
Won’t you stand by me?
Oh, stand by me, stand by me, stand by me.

Boston — More Than a Feeling

Дает понимание того, чем отличается краткое и долгое произношение букв «o» и «a» в закрытом и открытом слогах. Обращает внимание на особенности чтения окончания «ed».

I looked out this morning,

And the sun was gone.
Turned on some music to start my day
Then lost myself in a familiar song.
closed my eyes and I slipped away.

[Chorus:]
It’s more than a feeling
When I hear that old song they used to play
And I begin dreaming
Till I see Marianne walk away.
I see my Marianne walking away.

So many people have come and gone.
Their faces fade as the years go by.
Yet I still recall as I wander on
As clear as the sun in the summer sky.

[Chorus]

When I’m tired and thinking cold,
I hide in my music, forget the day,
And dream of a girl I used to know.
closed my eyes and she slipped away.
She slipped away.

[Chorus]

 Christina Aguilera — Beautiful

Слышно различие в звучании «oo» и «o» в разных вариациях. Много «ng» и сочетаний с «w» (опять же «o» до и после «w»).

Don’t look at me.
Every day is so wonderful
And suddenly, it’s hard to breathe.
Now and then, I get insecure
From all the fame, I’m so ashamed.

I am beautiful, no matter what they say.
Words can’t bring me down.
I am beautiful in every single way.
Yes, words can’t bring me down.
So don’t you bring me down today.

To all your friends, you’re delirious.
So consumed in all your doom,
Trying hard to fill the emptiness.
The piece is gone
And the puzzle undone.
That’s the way it is.

You are beautiful, no matter what they say.
Words won’t bring you down.
You are beautiful in every single way.
Yes, words won’t bring you down.
Don’t you bring me down today.

No matter what we do,
No matter what they say,
We’re the song inside the tune
Full of beautiful mistakes.

And everywhere we go
The sun will always shine.
And tomorrow we might wake on the other side.
All the other times.

We are beautiful, no matter what they say.
Yes, words won’t bring us down.
We are beautiful, no matter what they say.
Yes, words can’t bring us down.
Don’t you bring me down today.
Don’t you bring me down today.

 Bruno Mars — The Way You Are

Отработка окончания «ing», нередко представляющего трудность. Корректное чтение «p» и буквосочетания «air». Ну и слово-исключение «laugh».

 Oh, her eyes, her eyes

Make the stars look like they’re not shining.
Her hair, her hair
Falls perfectly without her trying.
She’s so beautiful.
And I tell her every day, yeah.

I know, I know
When I compliment her, she won’t believe me.
And it’s so, it’s so
Sad to think that she don’t see what I see.
But every time she asks me ‘Do I look okay?’,
I say…

[Chorus:]
When I see your face,
There’s not a thing that I would change,
‘Cause you’re amazing
Just the way you are.
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for a while,
‘Cause, girl, you’re amazing
Just the way you are.

Her lips, her lips,
I could kiss them all day if she’d let me.
Her laugh, her laugh,
She hates but I think it’s so sexy.
She’s so beautiful.
And I tell her every day.

Oh, you know, you know, you know
I’d never ask you to change.
If perfect’s what you’re searching for,
Then just stay the same.
So don’t even bother asking if you look okay,
‘Cause you know I’ll say…

[Chorus]

The way you are.
The way you are.

[Chorus]

 Eminem — Stan

Композиция насыщенна различными вариантами буквосочетаний с гласными, в том числе и вариантами, которые представляют трудность. Рифмовка делает заучивание звуков особенно эффективным.

My tea’s gone cold, I’m wondering why I got out of bed at all
The morning rain clouds up my window and I can’t see at all
And even if I could it’d all be gray, but your picture on my wall
It reminds me that it’s not so bad, it’s not so bad

Dear Slim, I wrote you but you still ain’t callin’
I left my cell, my pager, and my home phone at the bottom
I sent two letters back in Autumn, you must not have got them
There probably was a problem at the post office or somethin’
Sometimes I scribble addresses too sloppy when I jot ’em
But anyway, fuck it, what’s been up man? How’s your daughter?
My girlfriend’s pregnant too, I’m ’bout to be a father!
If I have a daughter, guess what I’m gonna call her? I’m gonna name her Bonnie
I read about your uncle Ronnie too, I’m sorry

I had a friend who killed himself over some bitch that didn’t want them
I know you probably hear this everyday, but I’m your biggest fan!
I even got the underground shit that you did with Skam
I got a room full of your posters and your pictures man
I like the shit you did with Ruckus too, that shit was bad
Anyway, I hope you get this man
hit me back, just to chat, truly yours, this is your biggest fan…this is Stan

[Chorus]

Dear Slim, you still ain’t called or wrote,
I hope you have a chance…
I ain’t mad, I just think it’s fucked up you don’t answer fans.
If you didn’t wanna talk to me outside the concert, you didn’t have to
But you could have signed an autograph for Mathew,
That’s my little brother man, he’s only six years old
We waited in the blistering cold for you for four hours and you just said no.
That’s pretty shitty man, your like his fuckin’ idol
He wants to be just like you, man! He likes you more than I do!
I ain’t that mad though, I just don’t like being lied to
Remember when we met in Denver?
You said if I write you, you would write back!
See I’m just like you in a way…
I never knew my father neither, he used to always cheat on my mom and beat her!
I can relate to what your saying in your songs!
So when I have a shitty day, I drift away and put them on cause I don’t really got shit else so that shit helps when I’m depressed
I even got a tattoo with your name across the chest!
Sometimes I even cut myself to see how much it bleeds,
Its like adrenaline, the pain is such a sudden rush for me,

See everything you say is real, and I respect you because you tell it
My girlfriend’s jealous because I talk about you 24/7
But she don’t know you like I know you slim…no one does,
She don’t know what it was like for people like us growing up
You gotta call me man, I’ll be the biggest fan you ever lose!
Sincerely yours, Stan
P.S. We should be together too

[Chorus]

Dear Mr. I’m too good to Call or Write My Fans!
This will be the last package I ever send your ass!
It’s been six months and still no word!
I don’t deserve it!
I know you got my last two letters, I wrote the addresses on them perfect!
So this is my cassette I’m sendin’ you, I hope you hear it!
I’m in a car right now…I’m doin’ 90 on a freeway!
Hey Slim, I drank a fifth of vodka, dare me to drive?
You know the song by Phil Collins, ’In the Air Tonight’?
About that guy who could have saved that other guy from drownin’ but didn’t?
And Phil saw it all and at a show he found him?
That’s kind a how this is, you could have rescued me from drownin’!
But now it’s too late, I’m on a 1000 downers now, I’m drowsy

And all I wanted was a lousy letter or call
I hope you know, I ripped all your pictures off the wall
I love you slim! We could have been together!
Think about it, you ruined it now, I hope you can’t sleep and you dream about it!
And when you dream I hope you can’t sleep and you scream about it!
I hope your conscience eats at you and you can’t breathe without me

See Slim
Shut up bitch I’m trying to talk!
Hey slim, that’s my girlfriend screamin’ in the trunk!
But I didn’t slit her throat! I just tied her up!
See I ain’t like you! ’Cause if she suffocates, she’ll suffer more then she’ll die too!
Well, gotta go, I’m almost at the bridge now!
Oh shit, I forgot! How am I supposed to send this shit out?!

[Chorus]

Dear Stan,
I meant to write you sooner, but I’ve just been busy!
You said your girlfriend’s pregnant now…how far along is she?
Look, I’m really flattered that you would call your daughter that!
And here’s an autograph for your brother, I wrote it on a starter cap.
I’m sorry I didn’t see you at the show, I must have missed you,
Don’t think I did that shit intentionally, just to diss you!
What’s this shit you said about you like to cut your wrists too?
I said that shit just clowning dog, come on, how fucked up is you?
Your guys will miss you Stan, I think you need some counseling to help your ass from bouncing off the walls when you get down some!
And what’s this shit about us meant to be together? That’s like the shit that will make me not wanna meet each other!

I really think you and your girlfriend need each other,
but maybe you just need to treat her better!
I hope you get to read this letter, I just hope it reaches you in time…before you hurt yourself!
I think you’ll be doing just as fine if you just relax a little.
I’m glad I inspire you but Stan, why are you so mad?
Try to understand that I do want you as a fan! I just don’t want you to do some crazy shit!
I seen this one shit on the news a couple weeks ago that made me sick!
Some dude was drunk and drove his car over a bridge and had his girlfriend in the trunk and she was pregnant with his kid and in the car they found a tape but it didn’t say who it was to. Come to think about it, his name was…It was you! Damn…
