English Pronunciation: "The Chaos", by Dr. Gerard Nolst Trenité

Feedback 
This is a classic English poem containing about 800 of the worst irregularities in English spelling and pronunciation.


Dearest creature in creation
Studying English pronunciation,
I will teach you in my verse
Sounds like corpse, corps, horse and worse.

I will keep you, Susy, busy,
Make your head with heat grow dizzy;
Tear in eye, your dress you'll tear;
Queer, fair seer, hear my prayer.

Pray, console your loving poet,
Make my coat look new, dear, sew it!
Just compare heart, hear and heard,
Dies and diet, lord and word.

Ordinary Love

Feedback 

Released in November 2013, this song was written for the movie Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. In the film, it scores the moment that Mandela emerges, victorious, to greet the people of South Africa.

According to Bono, the band decided to lace the triumphant moment with bit of melancholy after reading Mandela’s love letters to his wife, Winnie.

“He was leaving victorious, but his heart was truly broken…the only defeat he truly suffered was losing his marriage."

The song won a Golden Globe in 2013.
