Music for Language Learning


Recently I have been using music in my classes again. I have used music in my classes at Toyo Gakuen University. I have used music in lessons to help create a relaxing atmosphere and to set timings for the various tasks we do during lessons. I thought you might be interested in knowing what songs were played.
Last Week's playlist


John Coltrane: My Favourite Things

Miles Davis: Smooch

Stanley Clarke: Swung On

Jamiroquai: Cosmic Girl

Santana: Put Your Lights On

Massive Attack: Everywhen

Nelly Furtado: Afraid

Natacha Atlas: I Put a Spell on You

Robert Wyatt and Jimi Hendrix (playing bass): Slow Walkin' Talk

Soft Machine: She's Gone

Boards of Canada: In a Beautiful Place Out in the Country

Parliament Funkadelic: Tear the Roof Off

The Meters: Just Kissed my Baby

Six of the songs were performed by Americans. Three of the songs were performed by English musicians. The rest of the songs were performed by Canadians, Scots, Belgians, and Mexicans. Can you guess where the musicians in this playlist are from? Leave a comment and tell me your guesses.

If you want to hear more music by these musical artists or any other musical artists, type a name into the search engine of the Finetune Player on the right side of this blog.
