Describe a childhood song you remember well

  • Where you first heard this song
  • How old were you when you first heard it
  • What it was about

and explain how you feel now when you hear this song.


Songs play a quintessential role in our life. Listening to music is not only the rudimentary need of the hour but also enables us to relax and rejuvenate from the hectic schedule of our life.

Well, I listen to several kind of music whenever I am at home on the weekends or on holidays but I am pretty fond of listening to one of my favourite tracks from my childhood i.e. ‘Black or White’ from the studio album ‘Dangerous’ and of course, we all know that this is the single sung by the king of pop – Michael Jackson.

I heard this song for the first time on one of my friends’ birthday party at his home and I liked that song so much that we had played this song for 8-10 times and of course dance on that number.

As far as I remember, I guess I was in my 9th class. So, I was about 14 at that time. Since then, I liked to listen that track quite often.

Hammering the last nail, I would like to say that whenever I listen to this song, I find myself in the state of euphoria. I feel ecstatic and by listening to this song, I can recall my childhood memories and I missed them a lot.

[Notes: Whether you like listening to songs or music or not, you should start and end the topic in positive note. If you don’t remember the song of your childhood time, prepare to speak on one and build a story that where you listen to this song first in your childhood to tell the examiner, if this sort of topic will be asked to you in the IELTS Speaking test.

One more thing, if you see the first and last paragraph of the above answer, you can analyse that you would be able to use these exact statement in your test. Do not memorise, but practice it in a way that it will become your language and will flow fluently in the exam or you can build your own sentences to start and close the topic. It will help you to concentrate on the main questions to answer and you can answer the topic well – decent way to score higher in speaking test.]
