Online History Help: History Videos with History Lessons in Lyrics Set to Popular Songs

history for music lovers

History education, whether teaching history or learning history, can be fun, catchy, and informative – and even bite-sized – when you seek history help from the history song videos put out by History Teachers on YouTube. These aren’t your mother’s history documentaries or history movies, rather they are history set to popular music – history videos (both live action and history pictures) with history songs set to such popular tunes as “Tainted Love”, “Bad Romance”, “Creep”, “Dear Prudence”, “My Sharona”, “Fergilicious”, and dozens more. If you are looking for history for kids, or even a quick refresher for yourself and seek history answers and information that will stick with you, look no further!

The YouTube channel, sheparded by “History Teachers”, is called “History for Music Lovers”. This isn’t music history, though. It’s because it is history set to music that they call it “History for Music Lovers”.


The videos are each exceedingly well done, and range in historic times from Prehistoric (set to “Toxic” by Britney Spears) to Napolean (“Gone Daddy Gone” by the Violent Femmes), and everything in between, covering such diverse subjects as the Trojan War (set to “Bad Romance”), the Black Death ( set to “Hollaback Girl” by Gwen Stefani), Attila the Hun (set to “Hear Comes the Rain Again” by the Eurythmics), mummification (set to “Good Riddance” by Green Day), and the Spanish Inquisition. Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition (to be set to “Fascination” by The Human League)!

Here are a couple of our favorites, and you can see the whole collection at History for Music Lovers.
