She's leaving home - Easy Star All-Stars

A grammar one at last - used to introduce the idea of participle clauses, a bit livelier than the Beatles but the lyrics are the same if you want to use the Beatles

Streets of London - Ralph McTell

Song used to discuss poverty

Substitute - The Who

A song about substitutes to be used with appearances, I also used it as an introduction to the idea of substitution in grammar.

My Perfect Cousin

A song which was used to introduce the idea of rapport (or lack of) with some older teens

Cultural note - University Challenge is an inter university quiz show from Britain which was fairly popular with the intellectuals in the 70's and 80's! and still running!
