Rocking All Over The World is a song famous for kicking off the epic Live Aid charity megaconcerts in London and Philadelphia in 1985. It was performed by the rock group Status Quo and remains one of the most foot-stomping songs in rock history.
The symbolsong technique is an alternative to the gap-fill activity that often accompanies a song. At first the students have no idea what the symbols mean, but slowly you will hear gasps of delight as some students start to guess the words.
The students are firstly given a handout of the symbol sheet which represents the song, and after trying to decipher as much as they can, they then listen to the song and compare with their ideas. The full lyrics can be shown to the students for further comparison before they listen a second time.
