Aussie Mossie: Song Review


Song: Aussie Mossie
Artist: Don Spencer
Year: 1988
Nationality: Australian

Classification:
Narrative with science elements
Theme:
mosquitoes



What's it about?
This is a song about mosquitoes and the sheer annoyance they create and itchy sensation they leave one they have bitten you.


Embrace
It is fun and catchy. The chorus is very easy to pick up.

Beware
Nothing

Thoughts
A song from my childhood I could relate to this song. I was always being bitten by mosquitoes and had the red rashes to prove it. In the song when he says about how you can hear her - that sound is still enough to get me going on a mossie hunt!

This is the ideal song for introducing this annoying insect to a class. It details how it is only the female mossie who bites and about the behaviour of mossies in general.
Resources


  You can purchase the song for a small fee on iTunes.
