#967 Tiki Taane, Pink Panties, Splat

Show 967 Friday 13 February
Watch today’s show at YouTube or BlipTV.

Hi, I’m Sarah, welcome to The Daily English Show.

The song I recommend today is called Always On My Mind by Tiki Taane.
I really love this song and he’s one of my favourite musicians from New Zealand.

You can listen to this song – and watch the video – on Tiki’s YouTube channel.

This song is very easy to understand. It’s a guy singing to a girl and telling her how much he loves her.

He sings:
You have changed my life More than you'll ever know

And in the chorus he sings:
You’re always on my mind

On my mind or on your mind is an idiom.
If something is on your mind it means you’re thinking or worrying about it a lot.

In this case, it means that he’s thinking about the girl he loves a lot.


Kia ora in Stick News today thousands of people said they would send pink panties to a group in India on Valentine’s Day.

In January about 40 men from a religious group attacked a group who were in a pub in India. They said the women in the group were violating traditional Indian values. In response to the incident, four Indian women founded a group on Facebook which attracted more than 25,000 members in a few days. They called their group a consortium of pub-going, loose and forward women and started a campaign encouraging people to send pink underwear to the religious group on Valentine’s Day.

And that was Stick News for Friday 13th of February.
Kia ora.
