One of the first songs most kids learn in school is the ABC song, which teaches the alphabet’s order. However, many of those who learned the original tune are disapproving of its remix, which appears on the Dream English Kids YouTube channel. The Dream English version alters the trademark melody of the children’s song, slowing down the tempo of the “LMNOP”.

4. The original alphabetical song was used by American music publisher Charles Bradlee to help children learn their ABCs, copyrighting the tune in 1835.
