Thank you all for your song suggestions so far! We have received a lot of interest so far from classrooms across the U.S. and I am very excited about bringing Spanish students together from across the country to participate! As a reminder, I will post a bracket of 16 songs popular Spanish songs, and then two songs will "battle" each day. I will post youtube videos of those songs here on my website, along with an online poll for students to vote on which song they liked better. The tournament will last 3 weeks in March and end up with one grand winner! Here are some additional rules:
-Songs chosen will obviously need to have lyrics that are school appropriate. With multiple schools participating, we will error on the conservative side if there are any doubts.
-Although we may have some music video rounds if two songs in a battle have appropriate music videos, most of the battles will be lyric videos for students to sing along if they wish.
Here is an initial brainstorm of songs to include. Please feel free to give feedback and make further suggestions as a comment to this post! Do you think Stand By Me, Prince Royce and Waivin the Flag David Bisbal have too much English?
Vivir Mi Vida- Marc Anthony
Waka Waka- Shakira
El Mismo Sol- Alvaro Soler
