Hi to Melina and congratulations on getting a new (and better) job!
Audio feedback on episode 165 about chemistry from Maria and Alex
Feedback from Maite from Xátiva about the upside down King Felipe V.
First of all, I’d like to thank you for everything you do. I really enjoy listening to your superb podcasts.
Secondly, just as you asked for, here is my little research about the upside down King Felipe V.
Apparently, it was a Francesc Gil’s idea, canon of the Seu of València in the 50’s, who suggested Museu de l’Almoradí’s manager to hang the painting upside down as a symbolic meaning of punishment.
Felipe V ordered (his men) to burn Xàtiva twice and he also exchanged its name for San Felipe.
Don`t you think that this is more than enough probable cause?
Upside down – boca abajo, al revés / inside out – al revés
The picture was hung upside down – I put on my T-shirt inside out – and back to front – al revés)
Back to front

Hi friends, how are you doing?
Just to say the episode about music was brilliant (episode 163). I empathize with Reza because I played the guitar in a heavy metal band when I was younger.
I had to leave because of my degree and it was a difficult decision, but the right one.
Nowadays I still play my Gibson at home, remembering the real buzz you feel when you pull the strings on the stage.
By the way, have you ever made any episode about the British rock legends? Would you consider it? The Beatles, Pink floyd, The Who, Deep Purple, Led Zep, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden…..and so on.
I’m deeply in love with British music, in my opinion it’s the best item of your culture (the best thing about your culture).
Thanks a million for everything, cheers from Úbeda!
Ground-breaking (to break ground – abrir camino, ser pionero)
To innovate – innovar – innovation, innovative
Influential – influyente – to have influence
To lead the way
Cutting edge (edge can be ‘borde’ – the edge of the table – or ‘ventaja’ – tall basketball players have an edge.
Trendsetting – creating a fashion
A “wannabe” – someone who wants to be famous
Up and coming – just starting to achieve recognition
At the peak of your career
Past your best – no longer at your peak (too old to Rock ‘n’ Roll, too young to die!)
An unsung hero – Somebody who should be known for their achievements but isn’t.
Who are your favourite British rock and pop legends?
The Spice Girls
Mick Jagger, Keith Richards
John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr
Robert Plant, Jimmy Page
Liam & Noel Gallagher
Roger Waters, Syd Barrett, David Gilmour, etc.
Phil Lynott (was born in England but raised in Ireland)
Gary Moore, (from Northern Ireland, was a successful soloist as well as Thin Lizzy member.
Those of a certain age will know this very famous 1979 ballad, co-written by Moore and Lynott, even if you didn’t know who wrote it:
Etc, etc….The list is endless!
Some common music styles in the UK:
blues, rock, heavy metal, death metal, progressive rock, new age, ska, hard rock, punk rock, Bhangra, electric folk, folk rock, folk punk, acid jazz, trip hop, indie, shoegaze, grunge, drum and bass, goth rock, grime, Britpop and dubstep.
How do very good musicians achieve the status of legend? How do they stand out?
Do all rock and pop stars deserve (= merecer) their fame?
…and now it’s your turn to practise your English. Who are your British music legends? Who are your favourite bands and musicians?
