March Madness Song List
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:
Vivir Mi Vida- Marc Anthony
Waka Waka- Shakira
El Mismo Sol- Alvaro Soler
My students loved this activity last year! How about "Bailando," (Enrique Iglesias) or "El Perdón" (Nicky Jam/Enrique Iglesias)? Those are two of my students favorites. Others . . . "La Bicicleta" by Shakira/Carlos Vives; "Juntos" by Juanes.

Hola, I did a music bracket last March and my Ss enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to see this one! Thanks for the planning.
If anyone ends up doing this on their own...here are a few things I found out or will change for next time. Plan all songs out in advance to be the most efficient in doing the match ups. I made the mistake of putting a few songs we had already done--and those turned out to be the favs usually. I wanted to get an assortment of genres and genders. For the second half I did pairs of the same style of music (i.e. Salsa, cumbia).
If you do this again this year what about dvicio, la oreja de van gogh, or celia cruz a lot of my kids love when we do these artist.
Is there a 2018 list so I can play songs ahead of time for my classes. Or do the match ups come out later? Thanks I just learned about this idea and am getting used to the set up. It sounds great!
You should add Shakiras new "Me Enamoré" and Chantaje.
I want dedpacito or la bamba to be in it those are some of my favorite songs.
Thank you for bbeing you
