Fave Songs

Do you like singing? What kind of music do you usually listen to? Do you have any fave songs? All of us have ever tried to sing a song in English without really knowing the lyrics, haven't we? In my view, listening to music and singing is a good way to improve our English, we can learn vocabulary, pronunciation, ... but I don't want you to read about the good points of this, but tell you about one of my fave songs - Yellow by the group Coldplay.

Maybe you know that when they surfaced this song in the year 2000, the single went straight into the charts, they were mixing the Brit-pop music with a bit of rock. Everybody seemed to enjoy this blend, not only their fans. Although I had heard this song a lot of times before, it was not until some years later, when I used it for one of my classes and since then it became really special to me (;-)) and one of my favourite songs.

Surfing the Internet, I found a link where you can listen to your fave songs and practise with the subtitles. What's more if you click on the "exercises" they're always different so that you can learn the lyrics little by little. Isn't it funny? Just listen to Yellow and tell me if you like it.

  1. Hi, Sofía,
    I think the link is very good to learn English with our favourites songs. I don´t like singing because I do it really bad but I'll try to sing when I stay alone at home. I like a lot a singer called James Blunt to do that. His songs are quite easy to understand. Ana

  2. I forgot to tell you about the song Yellow. I know Coldplay but I´ve never listened this song before. I like it. Ana

  3. I agree with Ana, it´s a really good web and I think I'll visit it very much!

    These are some of my fave songs:

    Sweet Child of Mine, Gun´s and Roses ( with probably one of the greatest guitar solos): http://www.subingles.com/artistas:g:guns_n_roses:sweet_child_o_mine

    And Losing my religion, REM: http://www.subingles.com/artistas:r:rem:losing_my_religion

    Enjoy it!


  4. Loosing my religion is wonderful Roman. Ana

  5. Thanks for this wonderful saturday morning, full of good music.
    I have listened the songs you have recommended... very goods! and I have remembered this two, that made me feel good.
    A lot of years ago, when I was only interested in learn french, this first song awaked my interest for the english idiom.

    Have a gorgeous day

    1. Thanks for contributing with this comment and suggesting these two other songs. To be honest, I had never heard about these singers Kim Wilde and Nena. The videos were clearly made in the eighties, that music, those clothes and hairstyles, ... It's good to look back from time to time, isn't it?
