Songs that will help you identify intervals

Dave Bennett Piano: Being able to recogise intervals when listening to a melody is incredibly valuable. A great way to anchor your perception of each interval is to use a famous song to remember how they sound, to remember the particular sound of each interval. So today I will give you at least one famous melody for the twelve intervals within the octave and one beyond the octave!
