I have categorized songs under various headings such as grammar, discussion topics and vocabulary. The grammar group has been divided according to suggested use e.g articles; present simple etc. The vocabulary group has been divided according to focus e.g. colours; weather etc. This list is by no means comprehensive. It has been compiled mostly from my own experience and from ideas from various websites including www.musicalenglishlessons.org. Sometimes it is difficult to decide if a category belongs under ‘Grammar’ or under ‘Vocabulary’ so please check both if you are looking for something specific. Any song can be used for grammar and vocabulary tasks so I have concentrated on what I thought to be the main focus.
