What is a good song for ELT? For me, it has to tick 4 boxes: a) It has to have lots of language;  b) the delivery has to be clear;  c) the music should not be too loud/intrusive;  d) it should not have long interludes without words. If on top of all this the song has something to say, so much the better. This is one of my absolute favourites. With a clear, unambiguous anti-war message, this song is a classic.
