Top 5 Musical Roberts
Splendid logo by Sarca @ caughtmegaming
With the Artist of the Week Series, I’m hoping to do at least a Top 5 with each Artist.
Is Bob Marley the Top Musical Robert?
He’s not far off!
5. Robert Fripp
Perhaps my favourite discovery of the 1001 list so far, a guitarist with a knack for playing the right tones at the right times.
4. Robert Marley
As in the Jamaican singer, though “Robert Marley” from the Muppet Christmas Carol is also noteworthy in his own way.
3. Robert Plant
“Robert Plant, Bobby Plant, let me be your sycophant” – Weird Al, at 2:02!
2. Robert Zimmerman
Would be #1 for many…
1. Robert Smith
…but it could only be Robert Smith for me.
Verbalize the Positive
A tip of the hat to my personal favourite Robert.
When I teach grade 10 math, I inevitably show my students the Rick Mercer Report clip below, where Rick exclaims, “I feel like I’m back in Grade 10 math!”
But then I’ll pause the video after he says the line (around 4:00) and ask if they caught the name of the Mad Hatter/Tap Teacher.
At which point, I not-so-modestly point out, that’s my brother!
Cheers Robert, looking forward to Pinnochio next week!
(starting at 3:00)
