Monday Earworm: Chris de Burgh

I was reminded of this song recently when we were discussing the Marie riddle, a moral dilemma from Donald Hall’s extremely dated piece “Argument and Persuasion.” The discussion was interesting, though, mostly because it exposed the societal prejudices my tenth graders have either absorbed or already, wisely, discarded.

This video used to be in frequent rotation in the early days of MTV, when I was glued to any screen playing that channel (much to my mother’s extreme consternation). How many of you remember this one?
