FACS Rocks in 2012!

Today our FACS Tune-Up Project officially begins!  Remember, our goal is to create a soundtrack for the entire FACS curriculum by sharing a song related to a different FACS concept each weekday of 2012.  If I’m successful, that will mean creating a directory of 260 songs that you can use to make your FACS classroom the most rockin’ area in your school.  Don’t forget that you are welcome to suggest songs throughout the year!  Just post a comment with title of the song that you would use in your classroom along with a link to help us locate it on the web.

Since it’s January, I thought we’d start with a topic that is always on everyone’s mind this time of year–getting in shape.  It’s a modern American tradition!  We overeat throughout the holidays and then struggle to take the extra pounds off in January.  So this week, we’ll be looking for music related to the topics of:

  • healthy eating
  • losing weight
  • exercise
  • shaping up

The first song in our FACS soundtrack is Healthy Body by Operation Ivy.  Get ready, because this one really moves. 

Lots of topics for discussion with this one!

Expensive vitamin pills and wheat germ on your windowsill
Your schedule’s hectic and you’ve got no time to kill
Earning money and you’re spending it the right way
Just in such a rush you don’t know if it’s night or day

5:30 get up, run run run
Then you work eight hours
Slaving under the gun
Little world is based on lies lies lies
Always rushing but you’re never ever satisfied

Healthy body sick mind
You’re working overtime
Healthy body sick mind
Too hectic, too hectic
Healthy body sick mind
"Why don’t you just unwind?"
It’s just a matter of time
Sick body sick mind!

The money you spend on running shoes could feed me for a week
Your plans are laid so well you can’t even sleep
Pursuit of happiness got you life locked up under marshall law
You got everything to lose so you’re paranoid about some fatal flaw

5:30 get up, run run run
Then you work eight hours
Slaving underneath the gun
Little world is based on lies lies lies lies lies lies lies lies lies
Ooooooooooooooooooooh!
Always rushing but you’re never ever satisfied

Healthy body sick mind
You’re working overtime
Healthy body sick mind
Too hectic, too hectic
Healthy body sick mind
Why don’t you just unwind?
It’s just a matter of time
Sick body sick mind!

Have a Rockin’ FACS day!
