I chose this song to practise superlative structures because the lyrics are absolutely crystal clear, (quite surprisingly as SOAD is an Alternative heavy metal band). It’s true that it may not be a good song for those who feel a little depressed, but if you’re into this type of music, I’m pretty sure you’ll find…… Continue reading A1/B1 Learning English with songs: Lonely Day by System Of A Down
This song is just perfect to become familiar with structures that use ‘will’ for predictions. The song Que Será Será made it to the hit charts in 1956 after Doris Day’s interpretation in Hitchcock’s film The Man Who Knew Too Much. Funnily, Doris Day didn’t like Que Será Será as she thought it sounded like…… Continue reading Learning English with songs: Que Será Será.
This song by Madonna talks about a precious time, before reaching adulthood, when life did not have the complexities that unfortunately, seem to come into existence as one gets older. It’s a good way to practice the structure ‘used to’ to speak about things from the past that no longer happen. In this post you…… Continue reading This Used to Be My Playground by Madonna
This is a really hilarious song performed by Syd Barret. It’s a sort of wierd love song where the boy is wooing a girl offering her the few things that he has and sharing stories and facts about his daily life with her. The end of the song is quite scary and I can’t help…… Continue reading Pink Floyd – Bike
This beautiful Billie-Eilish-song cover by TurnOfftheSystem is amazing! I’m absolutely lost for words and so proud to share it with the world. All the voices by the same guy, working on his laptop, using his mic, shut away from the world, in his room.
In no other way could I have started creating and uploading blog entries for this year, other than placing this beautiful cover by Israel “IZ” Kamakawiwo’ole and his soothing ukele. It’s a song of hope, to which we all relate to during these times of troubles and worries due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But it’s…… Continue reading Over the Rainbow by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole
This is a good song for the present continuous and vocabulary related to holidays and having a good time. It’s a real oldie that people (especially children ) still sing when they are going on an excursion. In this activity, a whole sentence is missing. Listen and choose the correct option from the two that…… Continue reading Cliff Richard & The Shadows – Summer Holiday
I was looking for a song with the present continous and I found this one, and it looks perfect for our isolation. and perfect for the present continous. The animation is really cute and you can see the lyrics and sing along like in a karaoke :D. I really hope it cheers you up! If…… Continue reading Learning English with songs Lemon Tree
The song I have chosen here is a song by Jeff Lynne called "When I Was a Boy." It explores the theme of reminiscing about the past, our childhood dreams, and the hopes we had as children. The lyrics express that as a boy, all the singer really wanted to do was to pick up… Continue reading Jeff Lynne’s ELO When I Was a Boy
