The response was so overwhelming and the number of searches so staggering that I decided to put together a nice, 8-minute video, containing 15 different song excerpts, organized by date – in the molds of my present perfect songs. Now, these songs may not be (or have ever been) sitting at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 or provide the sort of massive input flooding every teacher would dream of (some of the songs have only one or two examples), but I’m sure the video can at least give you an idea of which songs you can Google up and then use in class.
