Songs with elision of /d/

When a /d/ occurs between two other consonants, the /d/ sound is omitted.

  Handsworth Revolution

Let's Spend the Night Together

 Bored Teenagers

 The Wind Cries Mary

Wild Thing 

Police and Thieves

Stand by Me

Walk on the Wild Side

All these song titles illustrate elision of /d/. How could you use them with your students?
