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
