Educational Song

A song whose purpose is to educate.

It need not be strictly educational (for instance, in the context of a work of fiction, it may also serve to further the plot).

Educational songs are expected to crop up a lot in science shows or edutainment shows. A special case is when the educational song happens to be a Protest Song: these tend to be crash courses in political theory, economics, philosophy, or other subjects many find heavy going.

Often takes the form of a List Song.
