Heart and Soul

Surfing - Activity 3

Listen to Ryan Jones’ song Heart and Soul and follow the lyrics.

With this song Ryan Jones has created a potted history of surfing.

Discuss the references and allusions in the song.

Notice how Ryan Jones puts himself in the scene in the first person (even when the events happened in the seventeenth century).

Reading the lyrics, sing along with Ryan Jones.

Once again try different combinations of solo singers or groups in the verses and choruses, so that the ‘surfing through time’ journey is clear.

Ask pupils to collect seaside/surf/ images from the various time periods and build a whole class powerpoint presentation to run behind the song. 

When feeling confident, use Heart & Soul without vocals and perform ‘Heart and Soul’ with the pictures to accompany the verses.
