Johnny Cash - Hurt

Level: Hard

Johnny Cash's Nine Inch Nails Cover shouldn't be too painful. It goes at a moderate pace with time to catch up but it took me a couple of attempts to get outlines which were legible. There are a number of common words and word groupings. The 'in the end' word grouping is a crucial time saver.

Thanks to Teeline Tweets for the suggestion.

Celine Dion - My Heart Will Go On

Level: Medium

The Canadian songstress's Titanic hit is clear and sung at a steady pace so you should swim not sink with a bit of concentration.

The Crash Test Dummies - Mmm mmm mmm mmm

Level: Medium

No prizes for transcribing the chorus of this one and the lyrics are easy too if you remember the special outlines and word groupings. This song is full of them. The first line could have been lifted from a Teeline textbook.

Among the word groupings is the very useful 'all over the' written with an 'a' indicator over the following word. Three words with a single small dash makes this an essential time saver. All over the place / world / country are more likely to come up in NCTJ dictations.
