This song, by KT Tunstall is the definition of 'summery music'!

It makes me feel like dancing in the park in the sunshine.

It would really help me if you could tell me which songs you like to listen to when the sun is shining. Or do you have a favourite artist?

Complete this gap fill exercise and then let me know!

Music Video Lesson - The Rolling Stones 'Ruby Tuesday'

Average: 2.9 (12 votes)

By now you all know I have an obsession with songs that tell stories.

I also have a small obsession with The Rolling Stones and this is one of my favourite songs.

One of the reasons I love it so much is because the choreographer Christopher Bruce created this dance to it and I learnt the dance for an exam.

Listen to the song and see if you can complete the gaps with the correct words. Then tell us what you think of the song and the dance.

Music Video Lesson - The Script

Average: 3.3 (26 votes)

This is a very romantic song about a man who will wait forever for the love of his life to return to him. Although I think if someone did that for me I’d be quite cross and tell them to go inside and have a shower...

What do you think? Is this man romantic or silly?

Listen to the song and complete the gaps with the correct vocabulary.
