BO DIDDLEY - YOU CAN'T JUDGE A BOOK BY THE COVER

This video shows 3 important things:

1) Bo Diddley used women musicians back in the 1960s when it was rare for women to play.
2) This is from the TV show, "Shindig," in 1965. It was one of the first TV shows to feature dancers.
3) The song, "You Can't Judge A Book by Looking at the Cover" was written by one of the greatest of all blues song writers, Willie Dixon.

SPECIAL VOCABULARY WORD: RESPONSIBLE

When you are responsible you take ownership for your own actions. That means that you have to "own up to" the decisions you make, that you are able to say "I made that decision." RESPONSIBILITY is the "ability" to make "responses" = RESPONSE/ABILITY. You should always want to make "good" or "correct" responses.
