It can be TOUGH to find pop songs that are “appropriate” for our teen music therapy sessions.
I get it.
There are drug references, sexual innuendos and curse words in many of the new songs out now.
When I’m looking for songs that are “appropriate,” I’m looking for songs that are free of inappropriate language and content, and songs that are able to be used therapeutically.
Right now, I’m digging “Fight Song” by Rachel Platten, “Stitches” by Shawn Mendes, and a clean version of “Good to Be Alive (Hallelujah)” by Andy Grammer.
I don’t know about you but as the years go on I’ve found it more and more challenging to find those appropriate pop songs to use in my sessions.
Have you found the same thing to be true?
If you’re in the same boat as me – constantly looking for new pop songs that are out – you’ll want to check out Tuneful Teens 1 and Tuneful Teens 2 (or better yet the combo pack for a discounted price!)
These E-Books include a Pop Song Hot List with 100 pop songs that are out now and can be used therapeutically in your sessions.
I spend a lot of time researching new pop songs and this list is a great starting point so you have a quick, go-to resource of songs to draw from.
In these E-Books I also share other strategies for how to locate new songs as they come out and how to determine the musical preferences of your group, to ensure you’re using songs they are digging!
