Hey!! I ´m teaching the topic WORK. I found two songs: "hey,ho... (snow white)" and "I hate my job". I chose these two on purpose so that the students can see the difference between having a job you LOVE and one you HATE. If you are interested in the way I used both songs, I can send you the printable I made.
I also put the videos on my wiki, take a look: http://gppesam11th.wikispaces.com/

Don ´t forget "Whistle While You Work" -- also from Snow White.  There is a musical called Growing Up Great that is an excellent presentation for older kids.  It mentions careers from scientists to military.
