In this new section of my Fluency blog - 2B4W - Too brilliant for words - I include some of my favourite videos and performances that I come across online or that my friends have shared like this fantastic group Steve'n'Seagulls. .
Watch video below to see the band Steve'n'Seagulls from Finland in action performing an irresistible bluegrass cover of AC/DC's Thuderstruck. The lyrics are below the video and links to more about this unique musical phenomenon. There's also a link to the original version.
For students learning English and especially for those who love music, learning song lyrics is a brilliant and fun way to improve fluency!

But first you have to listen to brilliant Steve'n'Seagulls! They are 2B4W! Too brilliant for words!
Thunder, thunder, thunder, thunder
I was caught
In the middle of a railroad track
I looked round
And I knew there was no turning back
My mind raced
And I thought what could I do
And I knew
There was no help, no help from you
Sound of the drums
Beating in my heart
The thunder of guns
Tore me apart
Rode down the highway
Broke the limit, we hit the town
Went through to Texas, yeah Texas,
and we had some fun
We met some girls
Some dancers who gave a good time
Broke all the rules
Played all the fools
Yeah yeah they, they, they blew our minds
And I was shaking at the knees
Could I come again please
Yeah them ladies were too kind
I was shaking at the knees
Could I come again please
It's alright, we're doin' fine
It's alright, we're doin' fine, fine, fine
Thunderstruck, yeah, yeah, yeah
Thunderstruck, baby, baby
Thunderstruck, you've been Thunderstruck
You've been Thunderstruck
