Teaching through song

Other than the children's songs mentioned here, I also like to use more current (or at least recent) popular songs to provide examples of vocabulary and grammar in a cultural context. For example:

No Voy a Trabajar (Bermudas)
Ir + a + infinitive
Days of the week
Informal Commands

Mariposa Traicionera (MANA)
Informal Commands
Negation words

A Dios le pido (Juanes)
Indirect Object Pronouns
Subjunctive verbs

Ojalá que llueva café (Juan Luis Guerra)
Subjunctive verbs
Dominical regional food words (cultural interest)
Website with helpful grammar and vocab tips for this song
