Lyrics
http://listenmusic.fm/
---an unknown but large number of songs can be enjoyed here; search by search engine,

top song, top album or genre: for sure each song appears with a video as well as the lyrics;

to be sought if you like your English with music.

Lyrics.com

http://www.lyrics.com/

---You have heard the music somewhere but something was missing.That's it!

This site will let you read the lyrics to your favorite songs and watch them performed via a video clip. Do a search or browse by artist. All in all, a wonderful way to learn more informal English.


 

Lyrics Gaps

http://www.lyricsgaps.com/

"A fun method to learn and improve...English through music and typing in
song lyrics."
As the site name says, you listen/watch a music video & then write in
the gaps in the lyrics. There's an alphabetic selection of songs,
& the gapfills are at
3 levels.
Positive---all you need when working on a song is on the one page.

Negatives---
the site is an advertiser's dream; to use a worksheet you must create an account.

Still, the learner who favors English through music will not hesitate to use this site.(Other languages also available.)



 Mondos:Song Lessons

---"A course focused on understanding songs phonetically, linguistically, and
culturally. In this course, learners will listen to and practice pronunciation,
do a variety of vocabulary learning and phrase awareness activities,have a chance to discuss different
backgrounds and study language in a fun way."
One of a very few sites that goes beyond a video plus lyrics presentation (essential as that is); advanced.

 Subingles
http://en.subingles.com/

---This is a very good song site but it's sometimes bilingual & sometimes in
Spanish only.
So you must master the navigation & the questionable English.
As well as providing the lyrics on the screen,
each song has a number of associated
activities
which spread them over 3 levels of competence.
