March Music Madness 2017

It’s here! Our favorite time of year: When 16 songs go head-t0-head to see which hit will de declared the winner of March Music Madness. Our 2016 Bracket was a success, with students falling in love with the eventual winner.

We had a hard time narrowing down a list of just 17 songs that were just right for our annual tournament. We wanted to make sure that all songs were school appropriate for a wide range of audiences and avoided songs with references to sex, alcohol, or objectification. We wanted this year’s bracket to feature songs that were current, with well known artists, and genres that appeal to students. Without further adu…. the March Music Madness 2017 Bracket:

    Are all of the videos appropriate for school or do you show some lyric videos?

      I show mostly lyric videos. Only a few of the actual videos end up being appropriate for ALL audiences. If you do the tournament, I suggest creating a youtube playlist. But make sure to preview any video before you show it to your class. We have a link to our playlist in the product.
