Task 1.

Popular Culture

The Beauty of Gray performed by Live, from the album Mental Jewellery, about examining one’s racial prejudices:

‘This is not a black and white world

To be alive
I say that the colours must swirl
And I believe
That maybe today
We will all get to appreciate
The beauty of grey’

Task 2.

Beds are Burning performed by Midnight Oil, from the album Diesel and Dust, about the dispossession of Aboriginal people in Australia:

‘The time has come

To say fair’s fair
To pay the rent
To pay our share
The time has come
A fact’s a fact
It belongs to them
Let’s give it back’

Task 3.

I Am Australian performed by The Seekers, from the album Night of Nights Live, about appreciating diversity and unity in Australia:

‘We are one

But we are many
And from all the lands on earth we come
We share a dream
And sing with one voice
I am, you are, we are Australian’

Different People performed by No Doubt, from the album Tragic Kingdom, about the benefits of diversity:

‘He and she, two different people

With two separate lives
Then you put the two together
And get a spectacular surprise
‘Cause one can teach the other one
What she doesn’t know
While still the other fills a place inside
He never knew had room to grow’
