I've used Aretha Franklin's, Respect, to cue my students when it is time to line up for lunch, activity, recess, etc. I will secretly tell a student to "hit play" and the music comes on. As soon as my students hear the song they immediately stop what they're doing, push in their chairs and quietly line up. If they're not lined up when the song is over (which never happened), they have to move their clip as a consequence.
The song is fun and upbeat and it's funny to see the kids lining up quietly but yet somewhat dancing with their head bobbing too.
We practiced this a lot during the first couple of weeks of school.
