Hey fellow UGers,

This weekend I'm helping run a music activity at an event in England for 11-14 year olds, I need to choose a handful of songs we can teach them.
They should be:
a) Popular
b) Easy

It would be good to have a mixture of songs in different styles, and some with female vocalists too!

At the moment, heres a couple of ideas I had:
I'm a Believer by the Monkees
Buck Rogers - Feeder

I don't particularly care whether its good music or not, just that the kids will like it!

Thanks - much appreciated
take it easy with songs like paranoid, smoke on the water, whole lotta rosie.
Those are the first songs everyone has learned at our guitar lesson scene
how about cry of the blackbirds-amon amarth, the sound of truth - as i lay dying, six- all that remains
theyre pretty easy and theyre really good.
i know ive seen some kids really go crazy and have fun listening to this music
