Rhidian Brook

I mentioned a superb thought for the day a while back on Hoodies that was done by Rhidian Brook. I hadn’t realised that he’s a regular contributor to Radio 4 and I’m grateful to Charlotte for the link. I was especially impressed with this one that uses only song lyrics to express that ‘we cry out’
” …Dry your eyes mate. We can be heroes just for one day.
Today is gonna to be the day that they’re gonna throw it back to you.
by now you should have found out you realise what you gotta do.
Time to make the change, come on you rock and rollers.
Look at the stars see how they shine for you
With the boys from the Mersey and the Thames and the Tyne…
All the people, so many people, and they all go hand in hand, hand in hand
Nothing to say but what a day
It’s going to be a glorious day.
A beautiful day
I can feel it coming in the air tonight, O Lord…
Won’t you help to sing these songs of freedom …”

I reckon this would be great to use as a Youth session and/or to get young people to compose their feelings purely from lyrics.

  1. I have done this with young people on numerous occassions. We all found it really amazing experience, especially when conversations develop: growing community…conversation.
