4 English Phrases You Need

We decided to take a closer look at these phrases. Flight of the Conchords is a comedy duo out of New Zealand. They have been famous for a long time, first in England and later in the States. They even had their own show on HBO for a while and then both went on to appear in countless films. Bret McKenzie even won an Academy Award 2012 for his song Man or Muppet, which he wrote for the Muppet Movie.

Five Phrases from Forever, by Haim
Use the player above to listen to the podcast. The full transcript, lesson, and exercises are below. This week, we will look at five phrases from the song Forever, by Haim. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sEwM6ERq0gc&feature=kp Haim is a rock band from Los Angeles, California. The band actually consists of three sisters that grew up playing music with their parents. All three sisters can sing and play multiple instruments. HAIM has been compared to 70s soft-rock legends Fleetwood Mac; however, they insist that their influences are a bit more up-to-date, revealing they are big fans of 90s girl groups TLC and Destiny's Child. Many people have said that their music sounds like folk-rock. Their debut album Days Are Gone shot to the top of the UK charts in October of last year. And now they are nominated for Best International Group at this years The Brit Awards, which will take place on February 19.
