10 песен, которые нужно выучить, чтобы улучшить английское произношение

Узнавать тонкости и полезности английского 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.

Наш сайт подготовил 10 композиции, благодаря которым можно совмещать приятное с полезным: наслаждаться творчеством и работать над английским.

ABBA — I Have a Dream


Обращает внимание на разницу между «s» и «th». Благодаря зарифмованным строчкам легко отрабатываются буквосочетания «ea» и «ng».

I have a dream, a song to sing
To help me cope with anything.
If you see the wonder of a fairy tale,
You can take the future, even if you fail.
I believe in angels,
Something good in everything I see.
I believe in angels,
When I know the time is right for me.
I’ll cross the stream — I have a dream.

I have a dream, a fantasy
To help me through reality.
And my destination makes it worth the while,
Pushing through the darkness, still another mile.
I believe in angels,
Something good in everything I see.
I believe in angels,
When I know the time is right for me.
I’ll cross the stream — I have a dream.
I’ll cross the stream — I have a dream.

I have a dream, a song to sing
To help me cope with anything.
If you see the wonder of a fairy tale,
You can take the future, even if you fail.
I believe in angels,
Something good in everything I see.
I believe in angels,
When I know the time is right for me.
I’ll cross the stream — I have a dream.
I’ll cross the stream — I have a dream.

Beyonce — Halo


Отрабатываются разные варианты чтения «u»: например, в слове «put» этот звук произносится не по правилам, а в «built» он не читается вовсе. Есть и сочетание «gh», непроизносимое в большинстве случаев .

Remember those walls I built?
Well, baby, they are tumbling down.
And they didn’t even put up a fight.
They didn’t even make a sound.
I found a way to let you in.
But I never really had a doubt.
Standing in the light of your halo,
I got my angel now.

[Chorus:]
It’s like I’ve been awakened.
Every rule I had, you break it.
It’s the risk that I’m taking.
I ain’t never gonna shut you out!
Everywhere I’m looking now,
I’m surrounded by your embrace.
Baby, I can see your halo.
You know you’re my saving grace.
You’re everything I need and more.
It’s written all over your face.
Baby, I can feel your halo.
Pray it won’t fade away.
I can feel your halo.
I can see your halo.
I can feel your halo.
I can see your halo.
Halo, oh, oh.

Hit me like a ray of sun
Burning through my darkest night.
You’re the only one that I want.
Think I’m addicted to your light.
I swore I’d never fall again
But this doesn’t even feel like falling.
Gravity can’t forget
To pull me back to the ground again.

[Chorus]

Avril Lavigne — When You’re Gone


На отработку произношения «o» перед согласными и в сочетаниях с гласными. Много непростого «th» и буквосочетаний с «w».

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,
I 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,
I 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.

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

Ben E. King — Stand by Me


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

I don’t need your sympathy.
There’s nothing you can say or do for me.
And I don’t want a miracle.
You’ll never change for no one.

I hear your reasons why.
Where did you sleep last night?
And was she worth it, was she worth it?

[Chorus:]
‘Cos I’m strong enough to live without you.
Strong enough
And I quit crying long enough.
Now I’m strong enough
To know you gotta go.

There’s no more to say
So save your breath,
And then walk away.
No matter what I hear you say.
I’m strong enough
To know you gotta go.

So you feel misunderstood.
Baby, have I got news for you?
On being used, I could write a book.
You don’t wanna hear about it.

I’ve been losing sleep.
You’ve been going cheap.
She ain’t worth half of me, it’s true.
I’m telling you.

[Chorus]

Come hell or waters high,
You’ll never see me cry.
This is our last goodbye, it’s true.
I’m telling you.

[Chorus]

There’s no more to say,
So save your breath,
And you walk away.
No matter what I hear you say.
I’m strong enough
To know you gotta go.

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.

Cutting Crew — I’ve Been in Love Before

Представлены различные буквосочетания с «o». К примеру, чтение не по правилам в «love» (перед «v» в открытом слоге) или «dangerous» с нейтральным звуком.

Catch my breath, close my eyes.
Don’t believe a word.
Things she said, overheard.
Something wrong inside.
Once you won’t admit it,
Then you know you’re in it.

I’ve been in love before.
I’ve been in love before.
The hardest part is when you’re in it.
I’ve been in love before.
I’ve been in love before.

Just one touch, just one look.
A dangerous dance.
One small word can make me feel
Like running away.
You can’t say you’re in it,
No, until you reach the limit.

I’ve been in love before.
I’ve been in love before.
The hardest part is when you’re in it.
I’ve been in love before.
I’ve been in love before.

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]

Coldplay — The Speed of Sound

Демонстрирует особенности чтения «i», разницу между «s» и «z» и ударение в словах с приставкой «under».

How long before I get in
Before it starts before I begin?
How long before you decide
Before I know what it feels like?
Where to, where do I go?
If you never try then you’ll never know
How long do I have to climb
Up on the side of this mountain of mine?

Look up, I look up at night
Planets are moving at the speed of light
Climb up, up in the trees
Every chance that you get is a chance you seize
How long am I gonna stand
With my head stuck under the sand?
I’ll start before I can stop
Or before i see things the right way up

All that noise and all that sound
All those places I got found
And birds go flying at the speed of sound
To show you how it all began
Birds came flying from the underground
If you could see it then you’d understand

Ideas that you’ll never find
All the inventors could never design
The buildings that you put up
Japan and China all lit up
A sign that I couldn’t read
Or a light that I couldn’t see
Some things you have to believe
Others are puzzles puzzling me

All that noise and all that sound
All those places I got found
And birds go flying at the speed of sound
To show you how it all began
Birds came flying from the underground
If you could see it then you’d understand
Ah when you see it then you’ll understand

All those signs I knew what they meant
Some things you can’t invent
Some get made and some get sent, ooh ooh
And birds go flying at the speed of sound
To show you how it all began
Birds came flying from the underground
If you could see it then you’d understand
Oh when you see it then you’ll understand

How long before I get in,
Before it starts, before I begin?
How long before we decide,
Before I know what it feels like?
Where to, where do I go?
If you never try, then you never know.
How long do I have to climb
Up on the side of this mountain of mine?

Look up, I look up at night.
Planets are moving at the speed of light.
Climb up, up in the trees.
If the chance that you get
Is the chance you seize,
How long am I gonna stand
With my head stuck under the sand?
I’ll start before I can stop,
Before I say things that I made up.

And all that noise, all that sound,
And all those pieces, that I have found.
And the Earth’s gone flying
The speed of sound,
To show how it all began.
Birds come flying from underground.
If you could see it then you’d understand.

Ideas that you’ll never find,
All the inventors could never design.
All the buildings that you put up,
Japan and China are all lit up.
The first sign that I couldn’t read,
All the land that I couldn’t see.
Some things you have to believe
But others are puzzles,
Puzzling me.

And all that noise, all that sound,
And all those pieces, that I have found.
And the Earth’s gone flying
The speed of sound,
To show how it all began.
Birds come flying from underground.
If you could see it then you’d understand.
If you could see it then you’d understand.

All those signs, I knew what they meant.
Something you can’t invent.
Something else, something sane.
Oh…

And all that noise, all that sound,
And all those pieces, that I have found.
And the Earth’s gone flying
The speed of sound,
To show how it all began.
Birds come flying from underground.
If you could see it then you’d understand.

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…

2 КОММЕНТАРИИ

  1. Ну, насчет АББА Вы точно погорячились. Их всегда критиковали за хреновенький английский. Добавьте лучше англичан побольше, благо их всегда хватало в музыке.

  2. С удовольствием слушала песни! За них Вам огромное спасибо! И конечно же, ни черта не понимая!!! Но потом догадалась перевести текст в переводчике и слушала с еще большим удовольствием!!! А язык… пытаюсь учить, по крайней мере несколько слов запомнила. И с Вашей методикой учить оказалось не так и сложно. Вы — большой умница и спасибо Вам еще раз.
