Can anyone recommend good songs or poems, to hum or sing, for practicing Spanish, please?

I recommend this to overcome the dilemma of accidentally getting out of practise: Especially possibly after completing a stage in your Duolingo tree.

This initial learning of a few rhythmic sentences can be repeated in the car, walking the dog, shower, etc : because it a) reinforces your memory when you can unknowingly whistle or hum that rhythm; and also b) you can readily entertain others and have fun with a song in a bar or party of friends.

Once learnded and regularly hummed you'll never forget it just like a national anthem.

jasl Note, for Spanish learners the Cuban song "Guantanamera" is easy to hunm first, and then to learn; see lyricshttp://www.metrolyrics.com/guantanamera-lyrics-jose-feliciano.html

De Colores, Las Mañanitas, La Bamba, La Cucaracha - try searching for a learning the various folk songs and songs that became popular in America. I'm certain that there are songs that have an interesting history and meaning behind the lyrics.

¿«La cucaracha»? ¿En serio? No sabía que la historia de «La cucaracha» fuera interesante...

http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_cucaracha Era muy popular durante la Revolución mexicana. ¿Cómo puede ser aburrido?

No dije que la historia fuera aburrida. Dije que no creo que sea interesante para aprender español.
