Guess my favorite song is a great team building activity to get people to know a little more about each other.

Running the activity:

  1. Open the FunRetro page with the remote board for the activity.
  2. Ask each participant to find a video clip of their favorite song on YouTube.
  3. Instruct them to copy the YouTube URL and paste it into ‘Type something and hit enter…’ (the video clip will appear as in the image above).
  4. Hit play on the first song and the group has to guess whose it is.
  5. Repeat for all the video clips.


Music has been with humans as long as we can collectively remember. Song sharing is a great team building tool. Music foster group interactions; music brings good memories and get people talking about something beyond work activities. It´s a great and simple team building activity.

I have learned this team building activity from Gabriel Sixel. Alternative option: Guess Who Likes it for favorite movie (youtube trailer trailer).


Remote-team advice: Open the FunRetrospectives remote board (button below), then ask people to add their favorite song (as a youtube link) on the FunRetrospective board card.
