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.

Placebo - Every You Every Me

Level: Hard

This sing was recommended by Joe Sturdy who is working towards 110wpm. Not surprising then that this is a particularly tough one. Still, give it a go and those 100wpm dictations will seem a whole lot easier. It also throws up a lot of theory and useful to remember shortcuts and word groupings as highlighted in the transcript below.

Righteous Brothers - Unchained Melody

Level: Easy

Thanks to Victoria Finan for suggesting this one. With slow, clear lyrics and lots of essential theory it's a great one for beginners. A nice easy start if learning Teeline is on your New Year's resolution list.
