If Glasgow teachers let us know through our contact page that they really want and need more songs to be added, the site could be quickly stuffed with recordings and lyrics of fifty or more songs about and of Glasgow for teachers and pupils in Glasgow primary schools to enjoy and use.

Other song categories to be added could include
Songs For Kids - of the playground and home
Songs of Glasgow's Past - shipyards / mining / tobacco / the streets / the people / much more
Songs made in school projects - Easterhouse / the East End / Govan / more
Songs of the communities around Glasgow - Paisley / Clydebank / more
But even then there are so many relevant songs we can never give you them all here.
So, if you are a teacher who needs songs for project work or an occasion, please contact us and we will send them to you.
