Mark Gungor - Men's Brain Women's Brain

Here you have two versions of a very funny, although not always true, idea about men's and women's brains.
The first versions is subtitled in Spanish, the second version is an extended non-subtitled one. I hope nobody gets annoyed, it is just a simplified description of male and female brain. Scientists say that there are plenty of women who compartmentalize their thinking and plenty of men who are emotive thinkers.

And smile at the world.
Open your eyes and jump outta bed.

Just face it with a smile and sing.

"Blowin' in the Wind"

Bob Dylan’s song "Blowin' in the Wind" was released on his 1963 album "The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan". The song makes no reference to a specific event. It became one of the most popular anti-war songs during the 1960s, its message is still necessary today.


"Blowin' in the Wind" became world famous when it was recorded by Peter, Paul and Mary (often called PP&M), a musical group from the United States who were one of the most successful folk-singing groups of the 1960s.

Here you have both versions.






How many roads must a man walk down,
before they call him a man,
how many seas must a white dove sail,
before she sleeps in the sand,
and how many times must the cannonballs fly,
before they are forever banned,
the answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind,
the answer is blowing in the wind.

How many years can a mountain exist,
before it is washed to the sea,
how many years can some people exist,
before they're allowed to be free,
and how many times can a man turn his head,
and pretend that he just doesn't see,
the answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind
the answer is blowing in the wind.

How many times must a man look up,
before he can see the sky,
and how many years must one man have,
before he can hear people cry,
how many deaths will it take till he knows,
that too many people have died,
the answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind,
the answer is blowing in the wind.
Bob Dylan
