Yes, songs to learn Spanish grammar and vocabulary are a thing.

Many songs have hidden Spanish lessons in their lyrics. Whether they’re pop, rap, alternative or even Disney songs, they’re a great way to remember even the trickiest of Spanish grammar rules.

These easy Spanish songs will help you learn and remember grammar rules and vocabulary—all with a catchy tune.


Easy Spanish Songs for Beginners 

1. “Los Meses del Año” by mindymarissa

“Los Meses del Año” (“The Months of the Year”) is intended for children, but it’s also great for adults.

The song teaches you the Spanish months of the year, while the video shows animations to indicate what each month is like. The lyrics also appear onscreen so you can connect the written and spoken words.

The soothing tune might even help you achieve a zen-like state—ideal for learning!

2. “¡Colores, colores!” by Calico Spanish Songs for Kids

“¡Colores, colores!” (“Colors, colors!”) is a catchy song that’ll help you learn not only the colors but also some professions, how to use me gusta (I like) and basic question structures.

Each verse is accompanied by animations to help you understand any words you’re not familiar with. All the lyrics appear onscreen to help you follow along.

This song might be designed for kids, but don’t let that fool you. Anyone will fall for its enjoyable, upbeat melody.

3. “Spanish Verb Conjugation Song with Basho & Friends” by Basho & Friends

“Spanish Verb Conjugation Song with Basho & Friends” sounds vaguely like rap.

It may seem repetitive, but because of that, you’ll never forget common present tense verb conjugations again. Additionally, all the lyrics appear onscreen so you can see the conjugations, too.

4. “Interrogative Pronouns with Basho & Friends” by Basho & Friends

Basho & Friends are back at it again, but this time the song has a more jazzy vibe.

This number will help you remember interrogative pronouns, the words we use to ask questions (like the English “who,” “what,” “where,” “when,” “why” and “how”). There are also example questions to help you see the words in context.

All the lyrics appear onscreen along with animations to illustrate meaning.

5. “¡Buenos días! Greetings and Daily Routines” by Rockalingua

You can find the link to the song here.

¡Buenos días! Greeting and Daily Routines” (“Good morning! Greetings and Daily Routines”) is a rock song. It’s available as an audio file along with the lyrics and cartoon images of their meanings.

The song focuses on basic greetings and daily activities. This is a great way to get down these common and very useful phrases.

Songs for Intermediate and Advanced Learners

6. “Learn Spanish Vocabulary with Songs” by WORDPIE

WORDPIE offers a lot of vocabulary videos. This is the first one, but if you like it, there’s plenty more to check out.

The song has a sort of Latin hip-hop vibe. The lyrics move pretty quickly, but they do all appear onscreen. Due to the speed, you might need to listen to it a few times to catch everything. It’s alright, though—the tune will make it enjoyable!

7. “Spanish Por vs. Para Rap” by SlusionProductions

Sure, the video was made by students as a project for Spanish class, but that doesn’t make it any less helpful.

This rap is primarily in English with a few Spanish examples throughout. It can be hard to tell when to use por (for) and when to use para (for), but this rap can really help you memorize them.

The video is captioned (mostly) to help you follow along. And if you enjoy a little humor mixed in with your Spanish lesson, this is a great option.

8. “Spanish Preterite vs. Imperfect Rap” by SlusionProductions

Again, SlusionProductions gives us this rap in English with some Spanish examples. The lyrics are pretty fast, but the video is captioned to help you read along.

“Spanish Preterite vs. Imperfect Rap” will help you remember when to use the preterite and when to use the imperfect. It will also teach you their basic conjugations.

And again, there’s some humor infused in the video, so this is probably the most fun you’ll have conjugating.

9. “Irregular Spanish Verb Songs: Participles for Perfect Tenses” by Common Ground International

This calm, soothing song to the familiar tune of “Alouette” will help you remember the irregular participles for perfect tenses.

In Spanish, perfect tenses are the verb forms we use with haber (to have). This song includes the irregular participles, meaning the conjugations don’t quite follow standard rules.

The song is simple and short, and the words appear onscreen, so this is an easy, low-stress learning option in spite of its intimidating name.

10. “Preterite – Irregulars – Song!” by Señor Jordan

This simple song, to the tune of “La Cucaracha” (“The Cockroach”), will help teach you the irregulars in the preterite tense.

Since you generally need to memorize these irregulars instead of just relying on common patterns, this song is a helpful way to remember which verbs act a little differently in the preterite.

11. “Irregular Spanish Verb Songs: Conditional Tense” by Common Ground International

This song, which is set to the tune of “The Mexican Hat Dance,” is a super short, easy way to remember which verbs have irregular conjugations in the conditional tense.

The words appear onscreen to aid your studying. With any luck, you’ll get this stuck in your head and have no trouble conjugating those tricksters when you need to.

Why Listen to Spanish Songs?

Some Spanish songs are specifically designed for learners, like the ones above. This means they’re crafted to address your concerns, needs and language learning struggles.

Spanish songs also tend to be catchy, so it’s easier to remember the grammar and vocabulary within. It’s no secret that music and language learning go hand-in-hand, after all.

Finally, listening to Spanish songs is fun! Memorizing vocabulary words and grammar patterns can feel tedious, but listening to music doesn’t. You can study and still have a good time.
