1Forget the songs, this isn't a music forum.
To WWOOF in Spain you need to have the legal right to do so. To answer your question we need to know your nationality. If you are not a citizen of an EU country you would need a work permit. It is illegal for a non-EU tourist to WWOOF in Spain.

3First enelsol, the OP has not returned to acknowledge having read the response I gave. So there is no way of knowing if s/he is even returning.
Second, workaway is the same as WWOOF, you need to be able to legally work in any country in which it exists. Just as with WWOOF, it is a business that sells memberships. They may call it 'volunteering' but in fact it is about working and legally in many countries seen as such.
Also like WWOOF, they dance around the issue rather than tell you outright that you need a visa or work permit to legally participate. All they say on the workaway site is this: "Can you organise my visa for me?
Workaway can not advise or organise travel or working visas."
If you are going to post here on the TT and suggest workaway or anything else to people, you need to post responsibly and include the caveat, 'If you can legally work in this country'.
