Here's a collection of songs to listen to and try and play along with. Don't worry about playing exactly what you hear straight away, find the beat and use patterns you know to just stay in time with the music. As you get to know the song better you will start to learn the form of the song (verses, choruses, etc) and learn when patterns change and when there are fills. Once you know the song, then start to try and imitate what you hear more and more. This list barely scratches the surface of great songs to listen to and drum to. If you like a song, investigate who sings it and find other songs of theirs to play along with.
