Rock Between The Lines

A new book by British broadcaster Peter Barakan helps Japanese students of English get to grips with the lyrics of the most famous rock standards. "Rock Between The Lines" looks at the expressions, grammar, hidden meanings and social influences behind the lyrics of 36 songs, including such classics as John Lennon's "Imagine," and The Eagles' "Hotel California." The book also has a section that looks at the use of idioms, both in the songs and everyday English. The London-born Barakan is a veteran of Japanese TV and radio. The book is published by Shueisha and retails for ¥1,600.

To Peter Barakan,
I have very important information for you to share
that the Japanese EQ hangover that has affected 30% of the population in the earthquake stricken area is Mal De Debarquement Syndrome and I'm working on a Study with doctors in Boston MA..

something happened to my Facebook and I don't know why but I can't open it back up. Possible reason is that I put it Japanese language to get some attention from the good people of Japan that have been through tragic events..

Scroll down more on my FB Page and read all the documented proof I found that connects Mal de Debarquement to Joishin-Yoi = Earthquake hangover
check out lind below...I had Mal de debarquement for 21 months please e-mail me this back if you believe me..but go down further on my FB Page and check out...Pirate language was just a joke and for friends
