    Default Advice for a song

    Hi all,

    I have a session approaching where I will be presenting the function of moaning (New Headway, Upper-Intermediate). I'd really like to use a song to set the context (to offset what promises to be a bit of a dull lesson) but can't think of anything at all.

    Does anyone have any suggestions? The best I can come up with is either "Rabbit" by Chas & Dave or any song by The Smiths!

    Thanks,

    Bill

    The Bonzo Dogs' I'm Bored is a good moan, but your students might think you need sectioning.

    PS The Psychedelic Furs managed a nice line in world weariness and being bored. I think my age is showing through.

    teaching songs are extra ordinary for teaching pronunciation and vocabulary we also sometimes use it for some relevant topics. we have been very successful and and often perform it in our English language centre(Qeshm language Centre)
