Simon & Garfunkel - The Sound of Silence


Level: Medium

Thanks to Teeline Tweets for suggesting this. There are some complicated lyrics here and some words you're unlikely to meet in any exam. There are also several words you almost certainly will. The lyrics are delivered clearly and at a suitable pace to make this a challenging but achievable song.

Prince - When doves cry

 
Level: Hard

Another legend lost in 2016! It's a quite hard to keep up with the energetic funk of this classic song from Prince but there are several common outlines and word groupings which transcribing these lyrics will certainly sharpen up.

Sister Sledge - Lost in music



Level: Hard

After an easy lead-in this disco classic gets pretty demanding but with plenty of word groupings and special outlines it's worth the practice. Thanks to Francesca Gillett for suggesting this one.

No Doubt - Don't Speak


Level: medium

Thanks to new Musical Teeline fan Bridget Tanner for this suggestion. No Doubt's early hit goes at a steady pace with plenty of Teeline theory. The chorus races by but you have a few chances to nail it.

Frank Sinatra - My Way

Level: Medium

To mark the centenary of Ol' Blue Eyes here's one of his classics. Smooth, clear and not too fast it's a good one to practise. There are a one or two tricky lines and it's quite a long song which is good for learning to stay focused.

Take That - A Million Love Songs

Level: Medium

An early hit from Take That with a couple of special outlines in the title. Large numbers frequently come up when taking down Teeline but they're quick and easy to write if you know the outlines.
