Applications of Songza in Education

I am not really sure to what extent we should let our students be exposed to song and music site because they are not trustworthy all the time . Anyway , what i would suggest here is that teachers log on and create their stations and gather all the songs that they want to include in their teaching , this concerns language teachers who can have sessions called teaching a song .You can also use it to listen to some music and relax after a long busy day at school .
