Alexa, sing a song! A Musical World Trip with 170 Alexa Songs

There is this little known, wonderful Alexa feature: she can sing. You might have enjoyed some of her songs already, as we are continuously updating Alexa’s US English song list. But, Alexa does not only learn new songs, she can sing them in many languages and dialects! In this post we will use this feature for a musical journey around the world. You’ll be amazed how our singing Alexa sounds across the globe! Each and every song here is a unique little master piece.

Captain’s Announcement

“Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking! Welcome to smartenlight flight number 168, non-stop from your couch to Germany, United Kingdom, India, Australia, Canada, Spain, Mexico, United States, Canada, France, Italy, Brazil and back to your couch.”

“We’re flying a little zigzag pattern today as we’re sticking to Alexa’s language settings, but no worries, we have enough fuel on board for many musical weekend trips. The weather ahead is good and, therefore, we should have a smooth and uneventful flight. Thank you for choosing smartenlight airlines. Please sit back, relax and enjoy your flight.”

“Oh, I forgot … and please read our music instructions card for best experience!”

Music Instructions Card

Your itinerary, part 1

On this flight we will change the language settings of your Amazon Echo. You can do that easily by:

  1. Opening your Alexa app
  2. Tap the ‘More’ button and select “Settings”
  3. Tap on “Device Settings”
  4. On the devices list, scroll down to your Amazon Echo and tap on it
  5. Tap on Language and select the language of your destination

There are chances that you don’t speak the language of some of our destinations. Though we strongly encourage you to learn at least “Alexa, sing a song” in German, French, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese, because it’s super fun, our cabin crew has prepared links to Google translate. You just need to tap on the link and then on the speaker button, to let Google tell Alexa to sing a song.

Alexa will sing a random song and sometimes repeat a song many times, which is super boring. Our cabin crew has therefore prepared a song menu with all the songs we could find! You just need to say “Alexa, sing …” (in the right language) and then the song title from the menu and Alexa will sing what you’d like to hear.

Songs in bold italic are between 20 and 30 seconds long, so they are smartenlight approved international hand-washing songs! You can find more information here: Alexa, Wash my Hands! The fun way of Hand-washing =)

Your itinerary, part 2.

For those who already have some favorite Alexa songs in US English: if we found an international version of your song with a different title, we added the US English title next to the song. This way you can just search for your favorite song and check out versions in other languages and dialects.

In case you find a song which is not on our menu, you are entitled to post a comment below with the song title and language. We will then update this post with the song and your nick name and you will stay forever in our International Alexa Song Hall of Fame (this post). If you’re lucky enough to find a hand-washing song, we’ll make your song and nick name, right, bold italic.

Thank you for choosing smartenlight airlines. Enjoy your flight!
