I´ve been looking for an active song that can be acted out
Dear helpful teacher I´ve been looking for an active song that can be acted out and teacher Funda has suggested me a super song called Obladi Oblada by The Beatles and I decided to use it.Do you know any other songs that can be act out easily ? I´m gonna use them at my English show.Please inform me if you know one.Thanks a lot in advance.

Beatles songs are always popular. Most are familiar with the tunes and the words are usually clear to hear and therefore copy the pronunciation - they tend to be simple to!
Some suggestions:
Yellow Submarine
With a little help from my friends
Penny Lane
Then there are more (though not very) recent pop songs:
Wet Wet Wet "Love is all Around"
For some reason "Country Roads" by John Denver is quite popular with some...
I will pop back if I think of any more. (Or are you looking for children s songs?)
Sounds like a fun project.
Oh, you have changed your post since I replied... so mine response doesnt make much sense nowConfused
Songs you can act out.... hmmm....
I think musicals are a good place to look... how about something from "Grease" - lots of boppy songs there!
Other good musicals to google
Mary Poppins
The Sound of Music (as already mentioned)
Let us know on your decision!

"The sound of music" would be a great choice, too.

Obladi Oblada by The Beatles and it is easy to act out, too...

Below is the link to video by my students. They only had 1 day to prepare it, but it was fun...
